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

1/2Cup Salsa

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.

When I wasn’t studying for my Real Estate 14-hour continuing education test…. I was able to make some surprises with my VitaMix. I have to admit, while I was studying I managed to eat some Candy Corn from Halloween and today (Friday) I had some mini Tootsie Rolls. But on the other hand, no white wine or eating out.

So hear are the VitaMix Creations I made (Wednesday):

Wednesday I made Hummus and a Tropical Avocado Salsa… both were fabulous. ! They were so great; I managed to have both for dinner with some Triscuts.
