This morning I was so excited because I actually had a chance to go to Pilates at 7am. Before hand, I made it a point to wake up early and make another Fruit Smoothie. I did so, because  I actually promised Mikes son I would make him Fruit Smoothies for breakfast every morning before school, and today it started!!!!

The bonus in this cenario, I had enough left over for a glass for myself. So, for Breakfast I drank my 1tsp Barley Max Powder with 3-8oz glass Distilled Water and went off to my Pilates class, Fruit Smoothie in tow.

I didn’t get to go to Pilates this morning, because Mike needed the car for business. So instead, I got ready and weighed myself and I registered at 162lbs.

I think that was good, for all the deviations I took from the eating plan. I was actually expecting to be heavier… but I will take 162lbs. So over all, I lost 10lbs in the 14 days of eating the foods prescribed in the Hallelujah Acres 14 Day Menu Plan.

Already this morning I did have my Breakfast of 1Tsp Barley Max Powder with 4-8oz glass of distilled water.

Mid Morning 8oz Carrot, Celery, Cucumber Juice

30 Minute 1Tsp Barley Max Powder with 4-8oz glass of distilled water

Lunch is still open for discussion. It turns out, we went to Olive Garden for lunch and I ordered the Soup & Salad. For the Soup I had the Minestrone. But I indulged so much on the salad, I was fool and couldn’t even get to the soup. So I brought that home.

We didn’t get home until late, so I wasn’t able to do my Mid Afternoon Juice nor the 1Tsp of Barley Max Powder with 4-8oz glass of Distilled Water.

I actually forgot to do that before we left again(I was so tired and hungry I didn’t want to make anything.!) for dinner. We stopped off at the Chicken Out place up the street at the Potomac Village where I had a Vegetable Salad Wrap. It was a solid Raw meal, except for the dressing they used. It was a Creamy Honey Mustard. I didn’t even know you were given a dressing or for that matter I wasn’t even asked what kind I wanted..!!! Sooooooo. Anyway!

 Then Mike also ordered a Baked Sweet Potato and a Regular Baked Potato and I had some of each too. After we came home I did make the Barley Max and drank it after dinner. But before the Fruit Smoothie I made.

I got up this morning for a 30 minute Pilates class… and I’m glad I did. I had too much food last night and plus I got a heavy workout that made me work this morning, when I didn’t want to.

But again, I stopped off at the Starbucks across the street from the Pilates Studio to get, this time, a Tall Iced Chai Latte w/Soy.

Mike and I are both doing office work this morning… and I haven’t even gotten to making my mid morning juice, or take my Barley Max Powder. So after this, I’m going straight to the kitchen to do so.!

It started out on a positive note with a morning pilates class… but as I returned home, I realized I had ran out of the Barley Max and would not be getting any until Monday or Tuesday.

But I did prepare my juice… for my Mid Morning 8oz Tomato, Cucumber, Celery Juice

HINT:  Although tomatoes are a fruit, most people think of them as a vegetable so this juice is listed here. Fresh, raw tomato juice will taste and look quite different from those found in bottles and cans. Never use hot house tomatoes since they are picked green and gassed to make them turn red. 

Thinking in the back of my head I should juice the Mid afternoon 8oz Carrot, Celery, Cucumber (replaced spinach with Cucumber) before I leave the house this morning…. I didn’t. A mistake I will have to live with for the day.

Because as luck would have it… I did miss the Lunch of Peaches until satisfied, because I couldn’t find anywhere we were that sold Peaches. Costco and Walmart were not available.

But instead, I did have a cheese pizza at Costco. I did manage to scrape the cheese off the pizza before I ate it. At least I did that good.

Then by the time we came home… it was around 6:30 and I proceeded to make my Mid Afternoon 8oz Juice Carrot, Celery, Cucumber.

Dinner: Sunshine Carrot Salad, Green Pea Soup, Sunflower Loaf. WELL I DIDN”T DO ANY OF THAT.

Instead, I opted to finish leftovers from Saturday night. Mike started throwing food out of the refrigerator, so I had to get rid of leftovers before they got thrown away. Plus, I made a
