Day it seems I was in a haze for the better part of the day. And this morning I had some errands to run, so it  made for a very trying start to the day. I’m chalking it up to allergies!!

But by the time I finished with my errands, it was lunch time so I head home. Mike warmed up some left overs from yesterdays meal and I had the same thing I ate last night. Cucumber & Tomato Salad and Rice.

Not feeling any better then I did this morning… Mike and I decided to go out again. This time, I wanted to go north to St. Augustine to the outlet mall. Sunday when we were out in Orlando at the Outlets I got a shirt from Armani Exchange and it’s too tight. So I wanted to see it there was an Armani Exchange in St. Augustine, but there’s not.

So it was late… and my stomach was growling!!! So we went to Carrabba’s Restaurant.

It was just before 7pm when we walked in the door… and that means 2for1 happy hour. I had my usual House Pinot Grigio.

After last night’s fried fishplate at the clubhouse down the street, this morning I needed to do some work. So I went to a Pilate’s class at the local gym this morning (Wednesday).  I can’t find any Pilates studio with reformer machines here in Palm Coast. Infact, Yesterday I was looking for a Pilate’s studio and went into the gym for a tour of their facilities. I got the schedule for pilates classes and today was the first class I took. It was good, but nothing like Potomac Pilates.

Afterwards, I went running around and met up with a friend for lunch. I did really well and had the Apple, Cranberry Spinach Salad with a vinegarette dressing. I did indulge though in two pieces of cherry bread.

For dinner, we went to Carrabba’s Restaurant in St. Augustine. That’s about 30 miles north of our house in Palm Coast. I didn’t feel like cooking, nor did Mike so that’s what we did. It was happy hour when we got there, so I had the house Pinot Grigio.

Then the waitperson suggested Fried Zucchini Strips so we tried it. And they were sooooo good.  I ordered a Mediterranean Salad with no cheese and Mike and I split the Penne Franco.  Penne Pasta with Mushrooms, Roasted Tomato with Olive Oil and Seasonings. A lot like the Rigatoni Martino that used to be on the menu.

I made a promise to myself, that I would eat only good raw foods. It’s been like a roller coaster ride since September 1st, 2009 when I initially made the decision. And looking at the calendar, it’s nearing my June 2nd goal date and I’m not losing anymore weight, in fact I’ve gained.

So, now it’s down to the wire to curb my spontaneous and bad eating style. Being back in Florida, I’ve been monitoring what and how much I’m eating.  My juicing is a staple two times a day and I’ve been taking my Barley Max once a day. I’m actually thinking of beefing that up to two times a day.

Since Tuesday, I’ve eaten Minestrone Soup and Salad at Olive Garden for lunch and then I made a Layered Vegetable Salad for dinner.  Wednesday I had lunch with Mike and his daughter at a pizza shop and of course I had Pizza with a twist. I asked for two slices of pizza with Onion, Broccoli, Mushrooms and NO CHEESE with a Greek Salad with NO CHEESE. s at Carrabba’s Restaurant where I had an Insalata Furilluci Salad with Grilled Eggplant, Roasted Red Bell Peppers, Olives with an Oil and Vinegar Dressing. I also ordered Rigatoni Martino with no meat and cheese (Mike and I shared that!).
