If you haven’t noticed already, I’m taking a break from the book on this Hallelujah Acres 14 Day Eating Plan and incorporating my own stuff into it.. and maybe this will make a difference as well.

After an early morning wake up call Thursday, I didn’t have a problem getting up for my 8am Pilates Class. It was a but kicker as well. I need to get in all the classes I can because Monday, we’re driving back down to Florida where they don’t have these reformer pilates classes. The gym I joined there only has the matte pilates classes. 😦

So I took my 1tsp of Barley Max Powder mixed with 4-8oz of Distilled Water for Breakfast.

Now, I’m drinking my Mid Morning 8oz Juice of Celery, Carrot, Apple

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

Lunch will be Apples until I’m satisfied!!!

Plus I did some snacking on Stacy’s Pita Chips with Hummus.

Mid Afternoon 8oz Juice of Carrots, Celery, Spinach

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

We drove to Alexandria for  a farewell meal at Mike’s favorite restaurant, the Chart House. It was a lovely evening, cooling down from the 80 degree temps from the day. Everyone was out with their kids in the park, people were walking dogs, it was just a great night for a slow strole and a nice dinner by the water.  When we got into the restaurant, we had to wait 30 minutes for a table so I indulged in a Bombay Sapphire and Tonic and we ordered an appetizer of Shrimp Cocktail. For the main meal, we were seated outside on the patio while the sun was still up, and by the time I ate my  Chopped Salad, it was dark.

Sunday Vegetable Rice Soup

Sunday Vegetable Rice Soup

Mike’s wanted to see the movie “Everybody’s Fine” with Robert DeNiro since it came out the beginning of December. Well, last night he made me look up where the movie’s playing. I found out it’s only playing in Shirlington, a suburb next to Alexandria and Pentagon City. 

So after Ice Skating, we got in the car in our search for something to do indoors and agreed on the movie. By the time we got there, found out it was playing at 4:45pm. Well it was only 2:45pm, so went drove over to Tyson’s Mall to walk around and decided to take in “Up In The Air” with George Clooney. Good movie… funny, relevant, and just plain nice.

Sitting at home in the comfortable, warm shelter from the freezing cold outside, Mike’s waiting for 60 Minutes to come on and I’m going to head downstairs to eat some more of that Vegetable Soup. It’s just the thing to warm me up and energize me for Sunday Night line-up of shows. 60 Minutes, Home Makeover Edition, Desperate Housewives, and Brothers & Sisters. They’re all supposed to be new episodes tonight, and I can’t wait!!!!!  

But before that… it’s Sunday Vegetable Soup and some Whole Wheat Bread and afterwards some Vedge Juice.
