I woke up and didn’t have the slightest urge to go for a walk around the neighborhood, or even get up and out to take a Pilates Class. I just shrugged the early morning away!!!

I did get on the scale this morning and I went from 172lbs. to 171lbs… and I felt good about myself. And for some reason I had the idea to get a Venti Mocha Frappacino.

 I walked into Starbucks on my way out to run errands and Sari still recognized me after 6 months of not visiting. I didn’t think she was going to recognize me, but I’m glad she did. It made the purchase all the better.

Then for lunch, Mike and I sat down for some Fresh Vegetable Salad and Ash Reshteh. I had a scoop of each, which I probably could have gone a little easy on!!

Afterwards, we went to St. Augustine in search of my Beach Cruiser. It turns out Sears didn’t have my bike in yet, so I tood the opportunity to shop around. But I didn’t find anything. 😦

Then we stopped into Carrabba’s… big surprise!!!!

While we were in Daytona running some errands we came across a new restaurant called Vince Carter. It’s a very spacious piano bar, sports bar and steak restaurant all in one. The food was great too.!!!

I had a glass of Riesling Wine, which I didn’t finish; it was just a bit too soon to be drinking after Saturday’s binge. Then we ordered this great appetizer of Roasted Vegetables (Bell Peppers, Zucchini, Squash and Mushrooms) with a homemade Hummus and Bread.

But when I took the picture, I had already eaten all the Vegetables and bread.

 

 

For dinner I had a wonderful Central Salad, which consisted of

Romaine Lettuce, Artichoke Hearts, Cucumbers, Bell Peppers, Red Onion, Tomato and Almond Slices with a very tart Vinegarette.
