Cruise Day 16 – PV

Today’s Food:

Breakfast: Natural yoghurt with sweetener, cinnamon and 3 tsp of oatbran

Snack: Vanilla protein shake

Lunch: Homemade quark, paprika, sardines and boiled egg mashed together with celery sticks for dipping. Followed by yoghurt mixed with cinnamon, sweetener and a bit of oat bran. (Prepare the yoghurt mix the night before and pop in the fridge. By the time you come to eat it, it will have turned into a deliciously gooey consistency)

Snack: 1 laughing cow cheese wedge

Dinner: Fish cakes on a bed of mesclun salad accompanied by a sauce made wih extra light cream cheese and sweet chilli sauce

Snack: Low fat shaved turkey

Water: 2l +

Exercise: 10 minutes on the treadmill. 😦

Today I had a sore throat and was so incredibly tired. My alarm woke me up right in the middle of a scary dream and I was obviously in a deep sleep so I spent the whole day feeling like I was slightly still in sleep mode and hadn’t woken up properly. I hate that! It also meant I didn’t get out of bed to go for a run or do a pilates workout like I usually do. Lazy 😦

    Booo for being sick Right there with ya honey. Take it easy, don’t force your body too hard. Allow yourself a treat if you need it.

    I spent all of yesterday in my bed, sick with the cold. Didn’t even leave the house. The most exercise I got was trudging to the toilet! I’m impressed you got any time in on the treadmill – that’s dedication!

    Take care, sweetie!

    Hi Claire
    I see your blog daily via Charlottes site, and am interested to know why you have a daily protein shake. I know that other low carb diets recommend this, but I havn’t included it whilst doing DD. Does increasing your protein increase your weight loss and do you use a brand name or make up your own?
    Hope that all you sickies get better soon!XX

      Hi Bee, sorry for takng so long to respond! No real reason for the protein shakes. Mainly I like the taste and they’re relatively filing so make a good snack. Also I dod a fair bit of exercise so I guess I see it as sort of feeding my muscles! Really I just like them! I use one of those big tubs of whey powder and mix two and a half scoops with water. It’s delicious with milk but I think that’s a bit naughty!!
