I hit the Pilates Studio Wednesday morning…. feeling the pain from the morning before. Boy, Cyndi our instructor really gave us(me) a leg workout Tuesday. I think it was a combination of not doing Pilates from Friday to Monday and also putting a little more attention on the legs Tuesday. It really made climbing the stairs this week a bit more difficult.

But anyway, I got home from the Jump Board 45minute workout and started fixing my Breakfast  of 1Tsp of Barley Max Powder with 4-8oz of Distilled Water.

Then I mixed my Mid Morning 8oz Juice of Carrot, Celery, Spinach. I’ve become partial to this mix of vegetables.. and when I have the fresh Parsley I will add it too!!

30 minutes before Lunch I mixed 1Tsp of Barley Max Powder with 4-8oz of Distilled Water.

And prepared something I picked up from my girlfriend on my trip to New York. She made me a sandwich with Cucumbers, Tomatoes, and Red Onions one afternoon and it tasted so good, I recreated the meal.

Vegetable Sandwich on Whole Wheat:

Ingredients:

1Cucumber

1Tomato

1/2Red Onion

2-4 Slices of Whole Grain Wheat Bread

Directions: Wash and slice cucumbers, red onions and tomatoes. Slice Bread and layer ingredients and top with slice of bread.

I was feeling  a little rushed and knew I picked up a Bolthouse Farms Juice at the market the other day and decided to implement that in my day. So, for my Mid Afternoon 8oz Juice I used the Bolthouse Farms Vedge Juice which is 10 different vegetables mixed together. It kinda tastes like a V8 cocktail mix.

30minutes before dinner I mixed 1Tsp of Barley Max Powder with 4-8oz of Distilled Water. And afterwards I started on my meal. I decided to keep it light for dinner with a Loaded Cucumber & Tomato Salad:

Ingredients:

3Cucumbers

1/2Red Onion

1Yellow Bell Pepper

1Tomato

Corriander

Parsley

Paprika

Dried Onion Flakes

Garlic Powder

2Tbps Olive Oil

Directions: Wash, peel  and chop vegetables. Mix into bowl and add olive oil and season to taste.

I haven’t been to pilates since Friday… and waking up this morning at 4:30am to hit the road to Florida seemed like a big enough work out. I actually was able to juice my Spinach, Celery and Carrots Juice for the road, but the Carrots didn’t juice so it was a Spinach and Celery Juice. Tastes Weird!!!

I have to admit, this weekend and Monday was filled with sugar. In addition to all the cupcakes, and wedding cakes I had, I had some Ice Cream Monday afternoon.:(

That’s why, after we made it into Palm Coast I made sure to stop off at Wal-Mart to pick up some fresh fruit so I can make dinner. I put some Sweet Potatoes in the oven to bake while I chopped up some Vegetables to make my Layered Vegetable Salad.Layered Vegetable Salad
