Posts Tagged ‘Fruit Smoothie’

I hit the Pilates Studio this morning finally,  with less leg pain. So I ask my instructor to give us more abs exercises because I’m noticing the flab on my belly needs managing.

After Pilates I got home to make 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. I packed a 1Tsp mix of the Barley Max Powder with 4-8oz of Distilled Water, because I knew I was going to be out running errands.

30 minutes before lunch I drank my Barley Max Powder Mix and veered off the beat and path. For lunch I had a Fruit Smoothie from Smoothie King. It was Banana and Frozen Berries.. which I thought was as natural and raw as I was going to get.

Mid Afternoon I mixed an 8oz Juice of Carrot, Celery, and Spinach and also indulged in a bowl of Stacy’s Pita Chips.

Then we went off to the movies to check out Iron Man 2 and I stayed away from all the temptations. I’ve been drinking a lot more water and managed to do the same tonight.

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.

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 begged Mike for a warm weather weekend excursion… and I got a trip to Miami/Ft. Lauderdale, only to find out it wasn’t as warm as I thought it would be.

We had enough of the cold and snow from up north and when we drove back down to Florida, it was still cold. So I thought, a trip south would warm us up. But temps in Miami/Ft. Lauderdale were only 10 degrees warmer putting them in the 60’s 😦

Regardless, we hit the road Saturday morning and I packed the left over Hibachi Vegetables for lunch which I ate as soon as I got in the car. I did manage to juice two Carrot, Celery, Spinach, Apple drinks with the new VitaMix Juicer, and I made a Fruit Smoothie too!

Dinner was the usual Pier 66 culinary excursion. The food, atmosphere, and service are so amazing, it’s always a treat to go there. Each time I go there, I get the same Green Salad with out any Feta Cheese and this weekend Oil and Vinegar instead of their creamy dressing.  To spice things up I added a Baked Potato too in addition to a couple of Glasses of White Wine.

Sunday we got up to head down to Miami and found out the Food Networks Wine & Food Festival was taking place on the beach in South Beach. We decided to have lunch on Lincoln Street at a Rustic Pizza Restaurant we visited in November with my cousins when they came in town for the cruise. Mike and I split a 16″ medium pizza.

My half was the Vegetable side with no Cheese on a Wheat crust and Mike’s side was the Mushroom Pizza with Cheese.  

Then we continued walking toward the Ocean, where we scoped out the Wine & Food Festival. It turns out, in order to get on the beach to walk around and sample wines, foods, etc. we had to pay $230 per person. A price a little to steep for a couple of hours of testing.! So we went across the street and sat at The Carlyle and had Daquiries and an appetizer dish of Chips and Calamari.

Sunday Morning was a tough ride home….. tooo many Daquiries last night and a bad diet all around. We stopped at Einstein Bros. Bagels for a Whole Grain Bagel with Butter and the middle scooped out and to drink I got a Frozen Mocha Latte.  As we were driving north, I begged Mike to stop in Palm Beach, to see how the other half lives.

We drove up along Ocean Ave (A1A) and saw the mansions facing the ocean and then we stopped at the Breakers Hotel. It’s where some of the “Heartbreakers” movie was filmed. And the hotel is also supposed to be a famous, historic resort as well.

Further north we stopped outside of Titusville for lunch, which turned out to be Long John Silver’s Fish and Fries Combo with a couple of Hush Puppies. I’m still having feedback from all that grease I ate earlier.
