I had an urge to eat some Ice Cream last night after  I blogged… but I stopped myself from doing so. And this morning, when I woke up I felt great. Infact, I got up early and went to the gym for a pilates workout. A workout that was very rigorous.. I moved and worked muscles that had been laying dormant.

Then I came home to Mike making a Vegetarian Lazagna. We bought some Whole Wheat Lazagna Pasta yesterday, so he had to use them along with some cut up Eggplants he froze a couple of weeks ago.

He entrusted me with the task of looking after the Lazagna and I managed to burn the bottom of it. Mike set up the Lazagna in the Coleman Grill outside, and when I went to check on it, I was not sure how he thought the top would get cooked. So when I went to check on the food again, the bottom was burnt and the top still needed to be done. So I took it off the grill and brought it inside so Mike could take care of it when he returned. 😦

Even though the Vegetable Lazagna was burnt on one side…and didn’t look much like a Lazagna… it still was good.

I think there has been a turning point for me this week….in the way I am approaching food.  In the last couple of months, I’ve been struggling with my eating, how much I’m eating, what I’m eating and how it’s affecting my body and weight. So I think I’ve been able to muster some self-control.

One thing that’s really been a great help… is the Pilates. Regularly, I’m attending classes in the morning and it’s definitely making a difference. I’ve noticed more definition in my arms, legs, and even in my stomach. Which is great, because I have a wedding to go to this weekend and that’s going to make a difference.

Today (Friday), as I’ve been doing since we’ve been here in Potomac, M.D., I juiced some carrot, celery, apple and this time through in some Spinach. I read yesterday, that you get a lot of protein from Spinach and thought I was neglecting the green leafy food, so I threw it in the mix.

I was dropped off at the mall, while Mike had some meetings. While I was there, I got really hungry and Mike didn’t pick me up until after 3pm.

Cinnamon Dolce Frapuccino

So, my defenses were compromised and I ordered a Starbucks Grande Cinnamon Dolce Frapuccino.   The only saving grace for that miscalculation was Mike drank half of it!!!Veggie Spring RollBuddha Rice Bowl

 Then since neither one of us had lunch; we stopped into P.F. Changes for a late lunch/early dinner. I had two Spring Rolls, Buddha Rice Bowl with Brown Rice and a Glass of Riesling.


Infact, I’ve been having some pretty healthy and substantial meals while eating out this week. Last night we went to Olive Garden and I had the Minestrone Soup and Salad.

Minestrone Soup I did devour one Bread Stick and drank a Glass of White Wine. Then we went to a place called Moby Dick where I had a great tasting Veggie Wrap with Mushrooms, Alfalfa Sprouts, Onions, and Tomatoes on White Flat Bread.Mody Dick Veggie Wrap

Then we went to a Restaurant called Wildfire in the Tyson’s Mall for drinks, which turned into dinner. I did order 2 Glasses of White Wine and a Greek Salad after which I had some of Mike’s Cod Fish, Baked Potato and Asparagus.
