Sorry, disappeared for days again…. no, not because I did a triple somersault dive off the wagon this time!
On Wednesday I spent the day shopping in Clifton, then did a river boat ferry trip in Bristol, followed by an evening with my Dad & his wife, and stayed the night there with no blogging access.
On Wednesday I walked for about 4 – 4.5 hrs, some of it carrying a couple of heavy shopping bags. I did flag a bit after that, and the ferry ride was as much for a rest as an experience (though I thoroughly enjoyed it). I felt after that that I had possibly overdone the un-carbed walking and that’s why I eased up and allowed some carbs on Thursday (see below) while taking a rest day.
Thursday was my (40th) birthday and I spent the day with my Mum & her OH, visiting Devizes on market day
then having lunch and in the evening had a takeaway with M. So yes, all right, on Thursday I did eat too much, and it wasn’t really Dukan-friendly either day. But no binges, I got back into it yesterday with a pure protein day, and I’m already ok with my weigh in this morning!
Breakfast: You already saw the steak & eggs!
Lunch: Gourmet Burger Kitchen Lamb (not allowed on Dukan) burger with no bun and a salad. The burger was good but not as good as the Buffalo one; the salad was disappointing and limp. Ah well.
Dinner: Rotisserie chicken & salad
Snacks: I had to buy a yoghurt and add oat bran to it because after pre-making my oat bran pancake a day in advance I forgot to take it with me.
Breakfast: Oat bran mixed into Greek yoghurt with 2 packs of turkey breast
Lunch: Blackened tuna with salad and baked potato (just one of the butter pats)
When we got back from the lunch I baked a gluten free peach & blueberry crumble from Elana Amsterdam’s Cooking with Almond flour cook book; the topping is made with almond flour & grapeseed oil, it only had half a dozen ingredients and was dead simple to make & really delicious – but I forgot to take a picture. I had it with a tiny bit of Ambrosia low fat custard.
Dinner: Non-vegetarian set meal for 2 from our local Indian restaurant – a mini Tandoori grill, followed by pilau rice with lamb balti, bombay potatoes & chicken tikka masala.
Breakfast: oat bran pancake used as wrap full of ham (the one I made to eat on Wednesday) and some chicken
Lunch: More chicken (I’ll start growing feathers soon!) in an omelette of one whole egg & a large helping of egg-white
Dinner: Dukan barbecue (all meat & fish, no salad!) Chicken skewers & 1 rump steak skewer; a biesbok fillet. I also had a naughty mini Bratwurst after taking this horribly unfocused picture – no, your eyes are not failing you, it really does look like that….
