    Dukan Insanity

    As I've now completed 'Operation size 10 jeans', I thought it was time to start a new diary! So, a bit of a recap on what's happened so far.... well, I started on 31st May weighing in at 11st 1lbs, those size 10's were looking pretty snug back then!!!! Here's a pic:

    Dukan Insanity-securedownload-1.jpg

    After following the Dukan diet for 3 months I've lost 1st 8lbs, and finally managed to zip up those jeans without cutting off the blood supply to my lower body in the process. Here is my after pic:

    Dukan Insanity-img_0498.jpg

    I'm really pleased to have reached my goal weight, and I'm excited to move onto the next stage - consolidation! As I've lost 22lbs, I need to complete 110 days of consolidation, so I'll be fully 'consolidated' by 21st December. Here is how I'm going to handle the next phase:

    Mon - PV + evening starchy meal
    Tue - PV
    Wed - PV
    Thu - PP
    Fri - PV + evening gala meal
    Sat - PV
    Sun - PV

    I'm going to use my bread, cheese and fruit allowances every day for my lunch. This is going to make the whole process so much easier for me, as back on cruise I used to struggle coming up with lunch ideas for when I'm at work.

    I'm still completing the Insanity workouts, and I'm on day 9 of 60. The workouts are extremely tough, but I feel such a sense of achievement each time I complete a day. I'm hoping this regime will tone me up, and also help maintain my weight.

    Here is what's on the menu for today (conso day 1).
    B - chocolate Dukan porridge
    L - lean ham & cheese toasted sandwich, with lettuce & jalapenos (yum, yum, yum), ff yogurt, boiled egg, apple
    D - chilli with brown rice (starchy meal)
    Exercise: day 9 of Insanity

    Conso day 2

    Menu for today:
    B - chocolate Dukan porridge
    L - toasted sandwich with ham, cheese, jalapenos & lettuce, apple, 2 x boiled eggs, ff yogurt, sf jelly
    D - Going to pick up some fish on the way home and serve with broccoli & carrots
    Exercise - day 10 of Insanity (I'm starting to actually enjoy this now!)

    My first day on conso went well, and the chilli I had last night was lovely. I just softened some onions, added some garlic and fresh chilli, then browned off some mince and then added a tin of chopped tomatoes, chilli powder, mixed herbs, mushrooms, green pepper, teeny bit of sweetener and finally lots of black pepper. I served it with brown rice (75g uncooked, which works out as 190g cooked) - I actually couldn't eat all of the rice, it was too much! I need to get some wholemeal pasta as Dr Dukan prefers this over brown rice - not sure why?

    The Insanity training is going well, and weirdly I'm actually starting to enjoy the workouts now! As Shaun T would say, "Get fit or get out!!!"

    EDIT: Oops, just ate some M&S coffee & walnut cake as it's a colleague's birthday. That's an extra 300 calories I need to burn off. I'll have to put in extra effort tonight with the Insanity workout. No more slip ups are allowed this week!!!!!

    I'm not sure what to have as a gala meal. I don't want to go too crazy! I think I'm going to cook something rather than get a takeaway or go to a restaurant. I subscribe to Good Food magazine, so I think I'm going to have a read through that tonight and choose my favourite dish from the latest edition (probably washed down with a few glasses of vino).

    I'm sure you'll be wearing your size 10's soon! x

    Hi P!

    Good call on the grapefruit and poppy seed cake, just need to get myself a ring cake tin! I was also drawn to the tiramisu, but shuddered slightly when I saw the calorie count !!! (I think it would be worth it though)

    Food porn at it's best, and now I'm on conso I can even indulge myself once a week. Hope you're JUDDDering away ok, I see you've already lost 7lbs - fantastic!!! x

    Conso day 3

    B - chocolate Dukan porridge
    L - toasted sandwich with cheese, ham & jalapenos, 1x boiled egg, apple, sf jelly, ff yogurt
    D - mushroom omelette and salad
    Exercise - day 11 of Insanity

    I weighed myself this morning and I'm down another pound, so I'm now 9.6. I haven't had my gala meal this week yet, so my weight will probably even out again after that. Talking of gala meals, I spent last night looking through my food magazines and I've decided to make a chicken biryani for my gala meal. I'm looking forward to it already

    Either way you're probably making the right choice by cooking and not getting takeaway, it's more of a pain but ultimately it's less fatty (they use tons of oil). And well done you! Those jeans look awesome!

    I'm really inspired by your Conso diary, Ceri. You've done what I always said I would, and gone for full-blown Conso without pussy-footing around. For my first 2-3 weeks at tw I've had to pick and choose from other people's menus (been away on courses then on holiday) so I've loosened the reins a bit but not in the prescribed way. From today, though, I'm going to have bread, cheese and fruit every day (except pp days) and then, in another week or so, I'm going to add in the gala and starchy meals. Please carry on posting on your progress, I really need to read how others are doing in this phase. I want it to be as steady and reliable as Cruise was, and don't want to lose the plot - bet you do, too! Here's to us! xx

    Conso day 4 - Protein Thursday!

    B - Chocolate Dukan porridge
    L - Turkey meatballs, ff yogurt, sf jelly
    D - Smoked salmon & scrambled eggs
    Exercise - day 12 of Insanity

    Today was 'Protein Thursday'! I decided to go along with Dr Dukan's suggestion of a Thursday, as I'm having my gala meals on a Friday, so thought having the two consecutively would balance things out.

    My weight was back up to 9.7 this morning, which is fine, and I'm expecting that it will now fluctuate up and down now I'm in conso. I'm going to carry on weighing myself daily as I quite enjoy it, and I find it interesting how it changes throughout the day. It weirdly also helps me get out of bed in the morning, as I'm always so keen first thing to find out how much I weigh - I haven't missed my train to work since I started the diet!!! Anyway, I realise I have a slight addiction to the scales, but I'm not allowed to be addicted to peanut M&M's anymore, so this is now my vice!

    Really looking forward to my curry tomorrow night (gala meal)!!! I can't wait to get in the kitchen with a glass of wine, and cook my masterpiece (I've missed cooking so much on this diet, my menus have been so boring and unimaginative). Anyway, hopefully it will be delicious! x
