Posts Tagged ‘4-8oz of Distilled Water’

I woke up again to go to Pilates Class this morning…. I’m so glad I did.  I missed the class Monday, and with my eating highs and lows, I need this activity.

Tuesday turned into a really low day for eating right!!! Let’s start with the morning. I wasn’t able to make my juice, so I took it from a bottle of Bolthouse Farms Vedge Juice.

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

Before I even had a chance to take my Mid Morning Juice… I was temped by the Donuts I bought for Mike ate a glazed donut.

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

Then I warmed up yesterdays Minestrone Soup left overs… which were still delicious. I swear that soup at the Olive Garden was the best I’ve had since.

I was still a bit hungry, so I did a little digging in the freezer(BIG NO NO) and found two pieces of cheese and onion pizza from a couple of weeks ago. I poured some salsa on the plate  for dipping and proceeded to eat the pizza without taking the cheese off!

Mid Afternoon 8oz Juice TOTALLY SKIPPED

Instead I opted for a Yogurt and Cherry Sunday from Costco.  Eating both the cheese from the pizza and the yogurt sunday made me so bound up for the better part of the evening and into the morning. But that didn’t stop the madness.

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

Before we made it home, Mike picked up some Moby Dick Kabobs… so I ordered the Swordfish and Greek Salad. By the time we sat down to eat, I was not even hungry. My stomach was so heavy and uncomfortable it was weird. But I ended up eating half of the food anyway. I figured this lettuce and fish might help out the horrible situation going on in my stomach and make it better… 😦

We both got up bright and early to make it to the 8:4am Service at the National Cathedral. We managed to take our Breakfast of 1tsp. Barley Max Powder mixed with 4-8oz of Distilled Water.

During the service we noticed a woman hobbling into the service from the side entrance. She had a cane that she walked with and I also noticed,  she didn’t stand with the rest of us and had a bit of shake as she sat during the service.  I wasn’t sure what she had, but I knew there was a medical condition causing her to shake like that.

After I came back from taking the Eucarist I had to pass by her and I noticed she was crying. I asked her if she was O.K. and if there was anything I can do for her? She thanked me and told me she was alright.

But after the service, she seemed like she was in more pain and was crying more. So another person decided to get some help for her, while me and my girlfriend sat with her while they got her in a wheelchair to take her to the hospital. I found out while we were waiting with her that she has M.S. and that her name is Rachel. She also told me it was hell getting older and I asked her how old she was? She told me she was in her 40’s…. and I thought to myself, she’s not much older than I’m going to turn next month.

After everyone came and wisked her away I thought, could a vegan diet and drinking the Barley Max and Juicing help Rachel???? I guess I’ll never know the answer to that.

I found a Robeks Fruit Smoothie place to get a fresh Vegetable Juice after the service because I didn’t make anything before we left the house. And I remembered the Robeks has fresh juices on the menu. So I ordered an 12oz Carrot, Celery, Spinach Juice and was so happy to be able to get that out at a food place.

Then 30 minutes before lunch we took 1tsp of Barley Max Powder mixed with 4-8oz of Distilled Water and headed to Shamshuri Persian Restaurant. My girlfriend’s had Persian Food before and I knew she wasn’t going to eat a Beef Kabob, so I ordered the Salmon and Lima Bean Rice. We both split the meal, which was more than enough for the both of us. While we were waiting for the food though, I did order a Regular Tea and snacked on the White Flat Bread with Butter.

To help walk off some of the bad food we ate… we headed over to the Leesburg Outlet Mall to do some more shopping!!!

Unfortunately, the afternoon got away from us and we didn’t take our Mid Afternoon Juice or Barley Max. We did stop off at the Panera Bread near the Airport and had our final meal together of Half Greek Salad and Half Veggie Sandwich on Tomato Basil Bread. We said our goodbyes and Mike & I headed home for the Sunday Night T.V. Schedule of; Extreme Makeover, Desperate Housewives, Brothers & Sisters.

During the show, Mie and I polished off the rest of the Vanilla Lemon Whoopie Pie Cakes.

I hit the Pilates Studio Wednesday morning…. feeling the pain from the morning before. Boy, Cyndi our instructor really gave us(me) a leg workout Tuesday. I think it was a combination of not doing Pilates from Friday to Monday and also putting a little more attention on the legs Tuesday. It really made climbing the stairs this week a bit more difficult.

But anyway, I got home from the Jump Board 45minute workout and started fixing my Breakfast  of 1Tsp of Barley Max Powder with 4-8oz of Distilled Water.

Then I mixed my Mid Morning 8oz Juice of Carrot, Celery, Spinach. I’ve become partial to this mix of vegetables.. and when I have the fresh Parsley I will add it too!!

30 minutes before Lunch I mixed 1Tsp of Barley Max Powder with 4-8oz of Distilled Water.

And prepared something I picked up from my girlfriend on my trip to New York. She made me a sandwich with Cucumbers, Tomatoes, and Red Onions one afternoon and it tasted so good, I recreated the meal.

Vegetable Sandwich on Whole Wheat:

Ingredients:

1Cucumber

1Tomato

1/2Red Onion

2-4 Slices of Whole Grain Wheat Bread

Directions: Wash and slice cucumbers, red onions and tomatoes. Slice Bread and layer ingredients and top with slice of bread.

I was feeling  a little rushed and knew I picked up a Bolthouse Farms Juice at the market the other day and decided to implement that in my day. So, for my Mid Afternoon 8oz Juice I used the Bolthouse Farms Vedge Juice which is 10 different vegetables mixed together. It kinda tastes like a V8 cocktail mix.

30minutes before dinner I mixed 1Tsp of Barley Max Powder with 4-8oz of Distilled Water. And afterwards I started on my meal. I decided to keep it light for dinner with a Loaded Cucumber & Tomato Salad:

Ingredients:

3Cucumbers

1/2Red Onion

1Yellow Bell Pepper

1Tomato

Corriander

Parsley

Paprika

Dried Onion Flakes

Garlic Powder

2Tbps Olive Oil

Directions: Wash, peel  and chop vegetables. Mix into bowl and add olive oil and season to taste.
