After a weekend of a lot of eating and entertaining it was time to get back on the Pilates Studio horse and work it all off. But as luck would have it, this Monday morning I got up and made it to the studio in the rain to find a locked door. No one was there… and no one showed up after about 10 minutes of waiting around.

While I was waiting I thought about getting how I planned to get a workout in today and possibly start the 14 Day Hallelujah Acres Eating Plan to lose this remaining 18lbs. before my June birthday. But as it turned out, the day was not going my way.

So, I turned around and headed home to get ready for the day. I made my breakfast of 1tsp of Barley Max Powder mixed with 4-8oz of Distilled Water.  Then I made my Mid Morning 8oz Juice of Carrot, Celery, Spinach which I drank on the road along with a premixed Barley Max.  I drank that mix 30 minutes before we made it to the Olive Garden for lunch, where I had my usual Italian Salad and Minestrone Soup. I decided to get another bowl of soup to take home and eat for lunch Tuesday.

We made it home just after 4pm and I grabbed the Bolthouse Farms Vedge Juice out the refrigerator for my Mid Afternoon 8oz Juice. I ran out of Carrots, and didn’t make it to the store to buy more… thank goodness I have this juice.

While I was drinking the Tomato Juice I started getting hungry, so I started making a dinner of Green Vegetable Salad and Roasted Vegetables. The vegetables at the house were getting old and wrinkled, so I had to do something with them.

Green Vegetable Salad:


Handful of Spinach Leaves

1/2Red Onion, Chopped

1Tomato, Diced

1Orange Bell Pepper, Chopped

2Cucumbers, Peeled & Chopped

Directions: Wash, Peel, Dice Vegetables and mix into bowl. Add Salad Dressing Balsamic Vinaigrette from Wish Bone.

Roasted Vegetables



1Yellow Squash

4 Red and Yellow Potatoes

1/2Red Onion

2Tbls Olive Oil



Dried Onion Flakes

Garlic Powder

Directions: Preheat Oven 450 degrees and Wash, Dice potatoes. Mix olive oil and seasonings and place them in a pan and roast. Once potatoes are tender, then add  Chopped vegetables and roast until tender and brown.

For an evening snack while I was watching Dancing with The Stars, I had a bowl of Stacy’s Pita Chips. I think I need to stop eating them, because I’m getting some soars in my mouth from all the salt.!!!!

I almost missed the big night of the year!!! Dancing w/the Stars Premiere event.  I was reminded by Mike while we were sitting in Outback Steakhouse when he asked, “don’t you want to see Dancing W/the Stars tonight?” I quickly looked over to my watch and saw it was only 7:15pm… so we had a bit of time left.

Needless to say, I did finish my Blue Cheese Pecan Chopped Salad and Steamed Vegetables quite quickly. And I also managed to drink my happy hour 2 for 1 Pinot Grigio before we raced home.

We just made it, as I turned on the T.V. the opening music was going. I quickly changed clothes, got comfortable in the big chair and watched every single performance of the night. I even signed up for tickets during Shannon Dourghtys performance. It was much like Kate Gosslins… which was lack luster.! Pam Anderson was hot thought… even dancing on the dance floor she exudes sex!!!!

There were some surprises of the night toooo… Erin Andrews, Ochocinco, Pussy Cat Doll girl, Evan Lysacek just to name a few!!! I  can’t wait until next week.
