I’m really making a push to get rid of these pesky 26lbs. still on my body.

So Tuesday morning I woke up to hit the gym for my Pilates class, and then I did my weights and strength training later in the day and went for a bike ride with Mike.

During the day I made myself a bowl of My Own Guacamole:

Ingredients:

4Avocado

1/2Onion, Chopped

1/2Cup Salsa

1Lime

Directions: I peeled and chopped up the avocados into a bowl and added some chopped onions and the salsa. I mixed it up and made sure there were no big avocado chunks and added the lime juice.

For dipping, I cracked open a bag of Baked Tostitos Chips and some Natural Veggie Sticks to snack on… these chips are the closest thing to natural chips I can get my hands on.

Wednesday I woke up to a brisk walk around the neighborhood… went for a bike ride in the evening with Mike. Mike made his famous Asha Reshteh for lunch and we’ve been feasting on that ever since.

  Thursday I woke up for another early morning Pilates class and then after a big lunch of Asha Reshteh we went to Carrabba’s for dinner. I had my usual Mediterranean Salad with no Cheese and Oil and Vinegar dressing, some Bruchetta and a couple bites of the Lemonchello Dessert on the menu.

This morning we woke up to the Shuttle launch from down the Kennedy Space Center  2 hours south of us. By the time I got the camera and took the picture, the shuttle was already out of the earths atmosphere. All I got was the light in the sky and the smoke from the burners  lit up by the sunrise.

Snacking started early today.. I had my Almond, Raisins, and Cranberry Trail Mix and I had a Banana too.

Lunch and Dinner was just a bunch of leftovers..

Then for dinner.. I had a piece of Whole Wheat Bread and some Asha Reshteh Mike made  a couple of weeks ago.

Another lunch of Fresh Vegetable Salad and Asha Reshteh and then up to Jacksonville to pick up Mike’s son.

But before we hit the airport, we went to have dinner with Mike’s other son at Wasabi a Japanese Steakhouse. We had met up with him several weeks ago at the same restaurant.

And we had the same thing… Filet and Shrimp Hibache…. I of course had the vegetables, Zucchini, Squash, Carrots, Onions, and Broccoli. Before hand I asked for a Seaweed Salad and I had cold Sake.  I also asked the chef to make the Rice with no Egg. But I couldn’t say anything about all the butter he used… because there’s a table full of people waiting for him to cook for them.
