Dukan diet - round two, day 21

No change in weight overnight, although I had a good diet day yesterday and did a big cardio workout at the gym and again this morning. John came with me this morning, I think he is starting to enjoy it!

My big news is that I experienced acupuncture for the first time yesterday. Wow! I sent John along last week to see if it would help with his chronic 'golfers elbow' injury. He felt better and went again yesterday - vast improvement. Physio did not seem to help much.

I am still very sore in my ribs, back and neck from the car accident and have a swollen left elbow. I booked in for acupuncture (very cheap on Medibank private - David Haynes at Southport). Did not feel the needles at all, he knew straight away where I was still sore and I left feeling relaxed and slept really well last night with NO pain killers. Going again next week.

Just wanted to share that!

Dukan Diet - round two, day 19

Apologies for not blogging for over a week - the floods I. Queensland have caught everyone up on a frenzy of fund-raising and volunteering. My Rotary Club is raising funds to buy new mattresses for the flood victims in Theodore and we have also worked hard to get hundreds of hampers together to go to hard-hit areas.

With all this fling on my personal weight loss journey seemed less significant!

Having said that, I have now lost 1.8kg in 19 days, with 8.2kg to go in 81 days!

I started back at the gym properly this week, with John now a member and quite keen, yay! He had a personal training session this morning, so can't wait to hear about it (I was at Rotary).

I haven't been sticking to Dukan very well, slipping a few carbs in here and there and having a dinner party tonight .... But will get back to it tomorrow.
