I got up this morning for a 30 minute Pilates class… and I’m glad I did. I had too much food last night and plus I got a heavy workout that made me work this morning, when I didn’t want to.

But again, I stopped off at the Starbucks across the street from the Pilates Studio to get, this time, a Tall Iced Chai Latte w/Soy.

Mike and I are both doing office work this morning… and I haven’t even gotten to making my mid morning juice, or take my Barley Max Powder. So after this, I’m going straight to the kitchen to do so.!

Starbucks Grande Iced Chai Latte w/Soy

Starbucks Grande Iced Chai Latte w/Soy

Tuesday mornings are my early Pilates Classes starting at 7am. I almost missed the class because I ended up leaving the house 2 minutes before 7… so I got there about 5 minutes late.

Anyway… I burned calories and built some core muscle. For all this work, I felt like I deserved a reward. So against my best judgement, I went to Starbucks and upgraded my drink to a Grande Iced Chai Latte with Soy.

Then I came home to take a quick shower. And after the shower, I was curious to see where my weight was. I had some additional snacking of Stacy’s Pita Chips again and dinner last night was huge. It was like I couldn’t keep my mouth shut.

Stacy's Pita Chips

So, I got on the scale and I saw 160lbs… and thought WHAT!!!! And then did a little happy dance and jumped into the shower. I’m so thrilled that I am down to this weight, it really feels GREAT!!

Then I bounced down the stairs to the kitchen and made:

I decided to get up Monday and head to a pilates class… because in addition to eating well, I managed to do some snacking on Stacy’s Pita Chips.

After my workout… I came home and proceeded to make my Mid Morning 8oz Carrot, Apple and Celery Juice for the day.

And I managed to prepare a plastic bag of cut Cantalopes for my Lunch of Melon until satisfied.

By the time we came home Monday afternoon, I noticed a box at the front door and got excited because I knew it was my BARLEY MAX POWDER. So I quickly unloaded everything in may hands and opened up my box and took 1Tsp of Barley Max Powder mix with Distilled Water.

Then I happily made my Mid Afternoon 8oz Carrot, Beet Juice.

30 minutes before Dinner, I FINALLY took 1Tsp of Barley Max Powder mix with Distilled Water.

Dinner plans were a bit recycled … on the menu it called for Spinach Salad, Baked Potato and Raw or Steamed Veggies. So, I decided to eat the remainder of my Garden Salad from Sunday and I put together a little Raw Veggie Salad and turned up the oven to bake my potato!

I started the day off with making my Mid Morning 8oz Juice of Carrot, Celery and Greens before I headed out to church.

I used Celery for Beets, because I had ran out and just used Green Leaf Lettuce for the Greens. I drank the Juice on my way to church and on my way home… and it was really good.

While I was out.. I made it a point to put together my grocery list and hit the Whole Foods and Giants for groceries. At Whole Foods, I picked up the Raw Apple Sauce I ate for lunch.

Mid Afternoon: it’s an 8oz Carrot Juice with Barley Max Powder. But unfortunately, my order has not come in yet… so it’s just Carrot Juice and maybe some Celery and Cucumber.

Dinner menu looks like this: Garden Salad and  Minestrone Soup. Looking forward to making dinner. 🙂

It started out on a positive note with a morning pilates class… but as I returned home, I realized I had ran out of the Barley Max and would not be getting any until Monday or Tuesday.

But I did prepare my juice… for my Mid Morning 8oz Tomato, Cucumber, Celery Juice

HINT:  Although tomatoes are a fruit, most people think of them as a vegetable so this juice is listed here. Fresh, raw tomato juice will taste and look quite different from those found in bottles and cans. Never use hot house tomatoes since they are picked green and gassed to make them turn red. 

Thinking in the back of my head I should juice the Mid afternoon 8oz Carrot, Celery, Cucumber (replaced spinach with Cucumber) before I leave the house this morning…. I didn’t. A mistake I will have to live with for the day.

Because as luck would have it… I did miss the Lunch of Peaches until satisfied, because I couldn’t find anywhere we were that sold Peaches. Costco and Walmart were not available.

But instead, I did have a cheese pizza at Costco. I did manage to scrape the cheese off the pizza before I ate it. At least I did that good.

Then by the time we came home… it was around 6:30 and I proceeded to make my Mid Afternoon 8oz Juice Carrot, Celery, Cucumber.

Dinner: Sunshine Carrot Salad, Green Pea Soup, Sunflower Loaf. WELL I DIDN”T DO ANY OF THAT.

Instead, I opted to finish leftovers from Saturday night. Mike started throwing food out of the refrigerator, so I had to get rid of leftovers before they got thrown away. Plus, I made a

I went for an early day of  Pilates Class and learned something really great!!! After I started on the menu for the day… I went upstairs to take my shower. And  just for grins, I stepped on the scale. I showed I weighed 164lbs…. I LOST 5 MORE LBS.!!!!!

The day started off well enough. I took a 7am Pilates Class and came home with quite a sweet build up… it was an intense hour long session.

When I came home I looked at the Book for the ingredients I needed for the menu:

Breakfast: 1tsp Barley Max Powder mix with 4-8oz Distilled Water

Mid Morning 8oz Juice Carrot, Apple, Broccoli Juice.

HINT: Broccoli contains a great amount of beta carotene as well as many other valuable nutrients that make it a powerful cancer-fighting food. Apples are the only fruit that can be used with either fruits or vegetables.

I went ahead and packed a bag with the Mid Afternoon 8oz Juice of Carrot, Cabbage, Celery Juice and a bottle of premixed Barley Max Powder for lunch.

Lunch: Nectarines until satisfied… but I didn’t have any at home so I made Mike stop at a Whole Foods while we were out. Mike wanted to drive over to Annapolis for the day and have lunch out there at the Marriott Hotels Restaurant on the Harbor. 

Annapolis Harbor & Chesapeake Bay

Annapolis Harbor & Chesapeake Bay

Before we even got to Annapolis, I had the Barley Max and the Nectarines… and I still felt hungry. So at the restaurant, I ordered this green salad and put Olive Oil and Vinegar on as dressing. I was quite big, so I unfortunately ate about half of the salad… munching on the Cucumbers, Carrots, Onions and Tomatoes mixed in there.

Thursday Menu Green Salad

Thursday Menu Green Salad

 Mid Afternoon 8oz Juice Carrot, Cabbage, Celery was on the road…. and it tasted really strong!

HINT: If your system is acidic this juice may cause you to feel gassy.

At home… I had my 1tsp Barley Max Powder 30 minutes before dinner.

Then I started preparing the menu for dinner… It had been a while since I made the Lentil, Barley Stew (both Mike and I love) so it was exciting. Along with the Lentil Stew I made a Broccoli Mix.

As the title implies… the morning started off a little rainy. I did wake up early, but Mike had to leave for business early so I wasn’t able to get to Pilates Class this morning. Hopefully this afternoon I can squeeze it in.:)

But, I did get up and made this mornings Juice Drink of Carrot, Beet and Cucumber. I also took my spoonful of Barley Max with water and took at look at the menu for today.

It was a great start to the day… I got up for an early morning Pilates Class here in Potomac, MD. I love the reformer Pilates Classes here!!!! It makes me feel good!!

Breakfast: 1Tsp  Barley Max Powder mixed with 4-8oz of Distilled Water

Then I came home and made my Mid Morning  8oz Juice of Carrot, Cucumber, Celery Juice.

HINT: Celery juice contains organic sodium combined with many minerals the body requires.  

For lunch, I mixed the Barley Max with water and had that 30 minutes before I splurged on 2 pears… that’s what the 14 day eating plan called for on Day 2.

Tuesday Lunch Pears As the day progressed, Mike and I went out and did some errands. Before we left though, I made Mid Afternoon 8oz Juice of  Carrot, Cucumber, Celery Juice for the road… While we were out and about, we realized it was 4pm in the afternoon already. I was starting the get a little hungry and Mike wanted to stop and have a cocktail somewhere local and low key.  

So we stopped off at Wildfire Restaurant in Tysons Corner Mall… where I had a glass of Pinot Grigio and we ordered a Greek Salad with no Cheese. We ended up having a couple of spoonfuls of the salad and then left for home.

For Dinner: I was still a little hungry and wanted to get back on track with the eating, so I mixed my Barley Max and had my drink and proceeded to make Zucchini Salad and Bake a Sweet Potato.

I preheated the oven to 40 degrees and put the Sweet Potatoes in for 4 minutes. And I ate it with some seasonings, or a sweet potato is also great plain!.
