And I’m off on a much needed holiday next Saturday, 14th July, for a week to Alicante in Spain and it’s going to bliss to just get away from everything for a while. Work has been stressful, losing weight has been stressful, watching my sister go off travelling for 6 months has been stressful and now I’m dealing with sorting out new housemates – RAH! Break time needed.
In preparation for this, I have been desperately trying to lose weight on WW plan but not getting very far because I think in my head ‘everything in moderation’ becomes shortened down to just eat ‘everything’. So instead, I have started the Dukan Diet today for the next 10 days to give me the little boost I need.
If you don’t know about the Dukan Diet, read the principles here. I’m currently in the Attack phase where I live off protein and that’s about it. Joy.
Now, I’ve done this plan in the past and lost just under a stone in 3 weeks. I’m not trying to do that but I need to feel that I will be happy that I tried to look better for my holiday.
The girl that I’m going on holiday with is, as well, very conscious of her weight and actually it will be great going on holiday where we can cook healthy salads, having nice healthy breakfasts etc without the pressure from a massive group of friends goading you into eating the full English option! As it’s just us two in her parent’s villa, it also means we won’t be drinking all the time, which I know is always going to hinder my weight loss.
Today’s menu today has been:
B – skinny iced latte + fat free greek yogurt with sweetner
L – turkey breast slices and chicken mini fillets + HOT skinny latte
I have also drunk a LOT of water! And weirdly I’m not hungry…. I will keep you updated on my progress…
