Apples & Bananas

Apples & Bananas

I couldn’t wait to wake up and go to Pilates this Monday morning… since I didn’t go all weekend and I ate Chocolate Dove Bars the night before!

 

 

It was a great work out at this morning’s Jump Board Pilates and my legs are definitely feeling the burn, even now.

After the workout, Mike and I got an early start on getting some errands done. We hit up the bank first and then it was off to the post office, where I check the P.O. Box. We drove all the way out to Virginia to drop off the dry cleaning and back tracked it to Tyson’s Mall area so we can get lunch. Mike likes to go to the Olive Garden Restaurant off Leesburg Pike in Tyson’s area.

I got my regular Minestrone Soup and Salad combination. I just love their Minestrone Soup, and today it was even better than the last time. Again, I indulged on two bread sticks during my fairly healthy meal. If only Olive Garden could switch to Whole Wheat Bread Sticks, that would be ideal for me!!!!

Later, I had a sweet tooth so we stopped off at Robeks for a smoothie. I got a Berry Burst Smoothie with an appetite suppressant boost. Yum Yum Yum!

We made it home just in time for Mike’s son to get home from school, and he had a little buddy with him. So I decided to cut up some Apples and Bananas and I made a side dish of Pita Chips and Hummus for the boys to snack on… and we’re still snacking on them. I’m not sure what’s for dinner.

This morning was my first day back to Pilates… and boy did it feel great. I took the Jump Board Pilates 30min class with Lindsay. She’s got to be the best pilates instructor ever… because she works you hard.

All day today, I’m feeling the burn from this morning… and I hope I’m up for the hour long class tomorrow. I love these Pilates classes at Potomac Pilates(just up the street from me), that I’ve already signed up for a class tomorrow. That class is an hour long Intermediate Pilates Class. Generally, I like to go to the 7am or 7:30am classes… and because I live just a few minutes away, it works for me.

Out of the shower, I weighed myselft… GOOD NEWS!!! I came in at 168lbs. And since I’ve been doing my crunches and arm weights at night lately, I decided to measure myself as well. I think the numbers are going down from last time I measured-a couple of months ago(November 5, 2009).
Chest: 40″
Waist: 35″
Hips: 40″

Things are looking better in the weight loss and eating raw departments…

Because on a side note…. to prove my theary of eating raw is good for you and healthy, I got some much needed third party encouragement. Mike went to the doctors this morning and just for his curiousity he asked, what foods are good to eat for you.? And the doctor replied, If it comes out of a cow it’s not good, if it comes out of the dirt it’s good.!!!!!!!!

And as I continue on with the Rawtolose40 Plan, for lunch I ate my Vegetable Salad from last night and took my spoonful of Barley Max (it came in the mail) and am drinking Water and Carrot Juice.

Dinner is still a question at this point in the day…
