I woke up this Saturday morning, bound and determined to go to a pilates class. I had enough of laying around. My body and muscles were atrophying! When I woke up around 8:30am I turned on the T.V. and watched a movie (Divine Secrets of the Ya Ya Sisterhood). As the next movie started (27 Dresses) I got up to make myself an Avocado Sandwich.

I went downstairs to put two slices of Whole Grain Wheat Bread (from Whole Foods) into the oven to toast. While I was waiting for the bread to toast, I mixed my Barley Max and drank it. Then, I spread a bit of “I can’t believe it’s not butter” onto the bread, sliced up the Avocados, placed them on each piece and lightly salted with Sea Salt. Yum Yum Yum!

By the time I ate my quick feast, it was time to start getting ready for my Pilates class. I actually scheduled the class last night, so I was financially obligated to attend the 11am Beginners Class. And the whole time I was getting ready, I was very worried how my back would feel in class, because it wasn’t 100% yet. There’s still some stiffness and pain when I move and walk. But I am feeling more flexible and mobile, even after walking around in those high heals yesterday.

I certainly remembered what happened last week when I was feeling better. I did something, or it was a combination of my activities that I reinjured my back. And I wasn’t looking for a repeat of that. So in the class, first thing I did was let the instructor know I have some back issues and I was very hesitant and slow to make any of the moves. But as the class progressed, I was making my moves more confidently and putting more effort and energy into each move. To say the least, I am surprised at how flexible I was without the pain I was expecting!

And as I type these words, my back is still feeling good after taking the pilates class. I am laying on the heating pad for a bit, just as a precaution!:)

I did snack on some Pita Chips and Hummus again and did drink my Vedge Vegetable drink from BoltHouse. It’s a great combination of 7 Vegetables (kinda like a v-8 juice drink). We picked that up the day before at Whole Foods. I’m trying to drink 2-8oz glasses a day.

For dinner I got up and made a Broccoli Noodles where I just cut up some Mushrooms, Broccoli and Boiled Noodles we bought at Whole Foods. I threw in the Broccoli and Mushroom to blanche with the Noodles. The Dressing was an Oil, Dried Onions, Paprika, Sea Salt, Corriander Seasoning.
