Starbucks Grande Iced Chai Latte w/Soy

Starbucks Grande Iced Chai Latte w/Soy

Tuesday mornings are my early Pilates Classes starting at 7am. I almost missed the class because I ended up leaving the house 2 minutes before 7… so I got there about 5 minutes late.

Anyway… I burned calories and built some core muscle. For all this work, I felt like I deserved a reward. So against my best judgement, I went to Starbucks and upgraded my drink to a Grande Iced Chai Latte with Soy.

Then I came home to take a quick shower. And after the shower, I was curious to see where my weight was. I had some additional snacking of Stacy’s Pita Chips again and dinner last night was huge. It was like I couldn’t keep my mouth shut.

So, I got on the scale and I saw 160lbs… and thought WHAT!!!! And then did a little happy dance and jumped into the shower. I’m so thrilled that I am down to this weight, it really feels GREAT!!

Then I bounced down the stairs to the kitchen and made:

Breakfast with 1Tsp Barley Max Powder mixed with Distilled Water

As the title implies… the morning started off a little rainy. I did wake up early, but Mike had to leave for business early so I wasn’t able to get to Pilates Class this morning. Hopefully this afternoon I can squeeze it in.:)

But, I did get up and made this mornings Juice Drink of Carrot, Beet and Cucumber. I also took my spoonful of Barley Max with water and took at look at the menu for today. 

HINT: Cucumber juice is a natural diuretic, is beneficial for those with rheumatic ailments, is high in potassium, promotes hair and fingernail growth and helps to eliminate skin eruptions.
