I got up early again Saturday and took a brisk walk around the neighborhood and it was bone chilling windy. I cut the walk a little short, because my ears were killing me from the cold.! ūüė¶

We got ready and¬†went for a ride down to Orlando and during the car trip I drank my Carrot, Beet, Celery, Apple Juice. Once we got down to Orlando, we were both hungry and decided to eat at Bahama Breeze. I ignored all my best judgment and had the Fish Tacos with Tilapia, Avocado, and Tomatoes in a Flour Tortilla. I had three of those, and remember the Bahama Rita’s they make? Yeah, well I drank one of those.!!!

From there, we went to the Outlets to do some shopping… and walk around. We didn’t get home until after 6pm and I didn’t have a chance to drink my other tumbler of Carrot, Beet, Celery and Apple Juice; so I drank it when we got home.

Once at home Mike made his famous Grilled Potatoes and Onions, and I decided to make a Healthy Green Salad. I decided to make that, to counteract my bad choice of having Fish for lunch. Well, if I thought that was bad, I didn’t know that an entire Large Hershey’s Bar with Almonds and Almond Peanut Butter was going to be my downfall.

Healthy Green Salad:

Spinach & Baby Greens

1Orange Bell Pepper

4Green Onions

1Tomato 

1Small Bunch of Broccoli

4Mushrooms

2Tbls Pomegranate

I went to my Pilates Class this morning at 8am and was a little disappointed in the class itself. I was expecting to get my cardio going and work my body… but¬†what we did was deep stretching.

The class this morning started at 7am and ran until 9am. It started with a warm up and a run for 45 minutes and back to the studio.  I elected not to do the run and got to the class at 8am hoping for a workout.  Well, I should have gone on the run to get my cardio. I found out some of the other women walked for 45 minutes, which I could have done too!!!

Regardless, it was good to stretch out some of my achy zones anyway.

I really didn’t feel like doing anything spectacular for lunch… so I just had the left over Garden Salad I made earlier this week and some¬†Pizza from Yesterday.

I had some last minute groceries to grab for some company coming into to¬†town tonight. A girlfriend and her¬†daughter are coming for a visit this weekend and I’m¬†pre making some¬†dishes. This particular friend of mine got me started on the Raw Foods Diet, so I’m¬†prying open my¬†cookbook to make some meals.

On the menu….

Almond Butter

Better Than Tuna

Avocado Slices

Strawberry Pie

Date-Pecan Wedges

Very excited to create all of these items while they are here.

Mike chimed in as well, and made a Roasted Eggplant with Potatoes (a dish my girlfriend loves.) I went ahead and had that for dinner tonight!
