Day 10 Kayaking

What to do in Naples… well we decided to take a kayak down the river. It was a beautifully hot day in Naples, Florida Saturday morning. Dressing in barely nothing was the key this Memorial Day weekend.

Breakfast was 1tsp of Barley Max Powder mixed with 4-8oz of Distilled Water.

No Mid Morning 8oz Juice…

After our Kayaking… I was hot, hungry and thirsty!!! So we ended up finding a Whole Foods Grocery Store, where they actually Juiced Vegetables. For my Mid Afternoon 8oz Juice Carrot, Celery, Cucumber.

Then we went through the buffet line at WholeFoods where I ate a Spinach Salad with Red Onions, Lentils, Chick Peas, and Oil and Vinegar Dressing. Then I tested some of the Guacamole and Salsa and some Orzo. It was really filling. I think I may have eaten too much!!!!

Back at the hotel, we showered and relaxed watching T.V. and snacking on Pistachio Nuts,. Not really interested in dressing up for dinner, we hit the Complimentary Bar on the 4th floor. I ended up snacking on some Carrots, Broccoli and crackers. I had a glass of White Wine. 

Unfortunately, during the night I got viciously sick and spent most of the night in the restroom. 😦 Not a good thing for our early morning Dolphin Experience Sunday.!

Mike and I think the Pistachios might have been the culprit here… because he got sick too!!!

Yup!!! We decided to go to the west coast of Florida for the Memorial Day Weekend and relax. We’d never been, so we decided to pack up this morning and go.

I made sure I packed up my Barley Max…Juiced for both Mid Morning and Mid Afternoon and brought some lunch and other snacks.

Before we left,  I had breakfast of  1tsp of Barley Max Powder mixed with 4-8oz Distilled Water.

Then I made my 8oz Juice for Mid Morning of Carrot, Celery, Spinach, Cucumber

Shortly after that, we hit the road to the west coast…. while we were driving through Orlando, I got hungry.

So, 30 Minutes before lunch I mixed 1tsp of Barley Max Powder with 4-8oz of Distilled Water

Lunch was just outside of Disney where I ate Apples on the road until I was satisfied (2)

Then we stopped off at Applebee’s Restaurant because Mike was Hungry. We were literally 10 miles outside of Tampa when we stopped for lunch. I really couldn’t say no to more food, because I was also hungry. I ordered a Oriental Chicken Salad with no Chicken and some Onion Rings before hand. Mike and I ordered off the 2 meals under $20 bucks. And that was the best I could get 😦

Basically, this is what my appetite has been like for say, the last 2-3 weeks. I eat my apples or other fruit, but I am still so hungry. I don’t know what to do about this. Plus, it’s not hard when I don’t have any self control around Mike. Unfortunately he’s not on the same eating plan, so I have to be really careful.

We hit the road after lunch and got past Tampa, Sarasota, and were driving around Fort Myers, but were not impressed.!

I drank my Mid Afternoon 8oz Juice of Carrot, Celery, Spinach, Cucumbers while we were driving around Fort Myers.

Then we decided to go further south to Naples, which was only 20 miles away… and guess what? We loved it!!!

We found a hotel and changed for dinner and 30 Minutes before Dinner I mixed 1tsp of Barley Max Powder with 4-8oz of Distilled Water.

For dinner we actually consulted with some hotel staff… the concierge wasn’t available then. So we went to a place called M Waterfront Restaurant at The Villages Complex. It was a beautiful dinner of Steamed Vegetables and a Bombay Sapphire and Tonic.

In the middle of my brisk walk this morning… I got hit with some rain. So I picked up the pace and ran home the rest of the way.

I made my Mid Morning 8oz Juice of Carrot, Celery, Cucumbers and then headed off to the shower. Again this morning I had some appointments in Daytona to attend to in the morning. Then my afternoon was open to work from home.

Wednesday 8 Wendy's Salad & Apple

For Lunch I remembered that Wendy’s had a nice Garden Salad, so on my way home, I stopped in and got at Garden Salad. I took it home and proceeded to eat the salad on a pile of papers in my office and grabbed an Apple to enjoy as well.

Then I hit the Walmart, to do a more extensive shopping adventure.

I woke up happy to be in Florida and decided, since I won’t have time for a Pilates Class this morning, I will take a quick walk around the neighborhood. I went for a quick 45 minute walk and jumped in the shower.

Breakfast… was just some water and vitamin supplements, because I was still waiting on my Barley Max order.

I didn’t make  a Mid Morning  8oz Juice because we were out of all the ingredients. So I made a mental note to stop off at the grocery store for a quick run in to get some Carrots and Celery.

I drove down to Daytona for some appointments and then headed over to meet a friend of mine at her office.

Tuesday 7 Zen Bistro Phad Thai Lunch

Tuesday 7 Zen Bistro Phad Thai Lunch

We decided to hit our local lunch spot, Zen Bistro for my  usual Veggie Phad Thai Dish. I get the noodles with no eggs and the peanuts on the side and enjoy.

I headed back up to Palm Coast, stopped off at the grocery store and headed back to the house to make my Mid Afternoon 8oz Juice of Carrot, Celery, Cucumbers.

Then I went back out to get my hair done…. it was a long time coming for this haircut.!

I got home and tried to feel out the situation for dinner. Mike decided on dinner at the Outback Restaurant, which was fine with me, because I didn’t have to make anything.

We got there after picking up one of Mike’s other sons… and I had a Glass of White Wine and had some bread and butter while we waited for our meals to come out. I had some of Mike’s Garden Salad before my  Norwegian Salmon with Steamed Veggies came to the table. It was a really great meal, however, I could really taste the butter in the veggies and in the salmon. It was a bitt of a system shocker.!

We got up early… Monday morning and started getting ready for our journey back down to Florida. I showered and packed up the rest of my bathroom supplies and headed downstairs to make my juice for my Mid Morning and Mid Afternoon drinks.

Breakfast was a 1tsp of Barley Max Powder mixed with 4-8oz of Distilled Water. And that was it for the Barley Max.!!!

And we hit the road at 7:30am… it was much later than we wanted to be leave, but Mike didn’t get up any earlier so that’s when we left.

Mid Morning 8oz Juice Carrot, Celery, Cucumber

Lunch was Apples until I was satisfied.

Mid Afternoon 8oz Juice Carrot, Celery, Cucumber

Here’s where it all went to pot… at dinner. We just pulled off the interstate at our exit in Palm Coast and we decided to go to Wendy’s. I didn’t want to cook anything and they have a really great $1 menu. I ordered a Garden Salad, Baked Potato and a Fish Filet Sandwich.!!!

I know, but I had this really strong craving for the sandwich. It seems these days, I get really strong cravings for food and I can’t say no. It’s like I haven’t eaten in so long, it feels like my stomach is going to come out of my body and take over. I feel so ravaged by hunger, I eat anything and everything that’s not good for me.!! I don’t know how to cure this, but with little healthy snacks throughout the day?!?!

No Pilates Class this morning… instead,after my 1tsp of Barley Max Powder mixed with 4-8oz of Distilled Water,  I headed off to Church at the National Cathedral in Washington D.C..

Afterwards, I met up with a girlfriend of mine from Daytona Beach, Florida  for coffee. We met a the Dean and Doluca Shop in Georgetown off M Street. It was only a mile or 2 from the Cathedral, but it took me forever to get there. I ended up parking at Q Street because I wasn’t sure I’d get a good parking spot on M Street. Then I had to walk the 5 or so blocks in heals on cobble stone sidewalks. Best of all thought, I didn’t have a coffee or even a tea.

Instead, I had my Mid Afternoon 8oz Juice  At Robeks Fruit Smoothie place, where they also juice vegetables like Carrots, Celery, Spinach and Apple.

30 Minutes before Lunch 1tsp of Barley Max Powder mixed with 4-8oz of Distilled Water.

I noticed I was getting lower and lower on my Barley Max Supply, and was thinking I will never make it until my new shipment comes Tuesday.

We started packing for our journey back down to Florida, and I ate another Veggie Sandwich and some Hummus and Pita Chips.

Veggie Sandwich:

Ingredients:

Whole Wheat Bread

Hummus

1 Cucumber 

1 Orange Bell Pepper

Directions: Slice Bread, Wash and Slice Vegetables and layer on bread with Hummus spread.

Mid Afternoon 8oz Juice of Carrots, Celery, Spinach, Apples left over from my Robecks stop earlier in the day.

30 Minutes before Dinner 1tsp of Barley Max Powder mixed with 4-8oz of Distilled Water.

Dinner was a hodge podge of leftovers, Pita Chips and Hummus.

Afterwards, we felt a little adventurous, so we piled in the car and walked along the Potomac River for some exercise. It was a great day for it too. The sun was out and everyone was enjoying the day as well.

After my pilates class Saturday morning… we decided to go on a road trip to Northern Maryland and the West Virginia boarder to The Bovarian Inn.

Before we left, I drank my 1tsp of Barley Max Powder mixed with 4-8oz Distilled Water  for breakfast… and noticed the container was getting very low. I had placed a new order on Friday, but I don’t think I’ll be able to wait until Tuesday when I get a new shipment. 😦

I made an 8oz Juice of Carrot, Spinach, Celery for my Mid Morning Juice that I’d be drinking on the road.

30 Minutes Before Lunch 1tsp of Barley Max Powder mixed with 4-8oz Distilled Water.

Lunch was Apples until I was Satisfied… Lunch took place on the road while we were driving to West Virginia.

We finally got to the Bovarian Inn along the Potomac River boarder of West Virginia and Maryland. It’s a beautiful place to go just for the scenery alone and then the food, well it’s a Bovarian Eastern European Fare. The dining room had an old-dated european influence, but the view out of their big picture windows make up for the decor inside. 

I wanted to obstain from eating another lunch, but I had a hard time. Afterall, I was still a little hungry and my stomach was feeling empty. So I ordered a Vegetable Sandwich with Fried, Zucchini and Carrots. It was a nice lite  addition to my earlier lunch in the car.

Then we walked around and enjoyed the scenery of the mountains, the river below and each other. We took out sight seeing down into the middle of town where all the shops and people were bustling, but then it started to rain. We made it into the car before it started pouring down hard… and continued on back home.

I made my own Vegetable Sandwich with Whole Wheat Bread and Hummus and snacked on some Pita Chips with Hummus too.
