Posts Tagged ‘Mid Afternoon 8oz Juice’

Yup!!! We decided to go to the west coast of Florida for the Memorial Day Weekend and relax. We’d never been, so we decided to pack up this morning and go.

I made sure I packed up my Barley Max…Juiced for both Mid Morning and Mid Afternoon and brought some lunch and other snacks.

Before we left,  I had breakfast of  1tsp of Barley Max Powder mixed with 4-8oz Distilled Water.

Then I made my 8oz Juice for Mid Morning of Carrot, Celery, Spinach, Cucumber

Shortly after that, we hit the road to the west coast…. while we were driving through Orlando, I got hungry.

So, 30 Minutes before lunch I mixed 1tsp of Barley Max Powder with 4-8oz of Distilled Water

Lunch was just outside of Disney where I ate Apples on the road until I was satisfied (2)

Then we stopped off at Applebee’s Restaurant because Mike was Hungry. We were literally 10 miles outside of Tampa when we stopped for lunch. I really couldn’t say no to more food, because I was also hungry. I ordered a Oriental Chicken Salad with no Chicken and some Onion Rings before hand. Mike and I ordered off the 2 meals under $20 bucks. And that was the best I could get 😦

Basically, this is what my appetite has been like for say, the last 2-3 weeks. I eat my apples or other fruit, but I am still so hungry. I don’t know what to do about this. Plus, it’s not hard when I don’t have any self control around Mike. Unfortunately he’s not on the same eating plan, so I have to be really careful.

We hit the road after lunch and got past Tampa, Sarasota, and were driving around Fort Myers, but were not impressed.!

I drank my Mid Afternoon 8oz Juice of Carrot, Celery, Spinach, Cucumbers while we were driving around Fort Myers.

Then we decided to go further south to Naples, which was only 20 miles away… and guess what? We loved it!!!

We found a hotel and changed for dinner and 30 Minutes before Dinner I mixed 1tsp of Barley Max Powder with 4-8oz of Distilled Water.

For dinner we actually consulted with some hotel staff… the concierge wasn’t available then. So we went to a place called M Waterfront Restaurant at The Villages Complex. It was a beautiful dinner of Steamed Vegetables and a Bombay Sapphire and Tonic.

We got up early… Monday morning and started getting ready for our journey back down to Florida. I showered and packed up the rest of my bathroom supplies and headed downstairs to make my juice for my Mid Morning and Mid Afternoon drinks.

Breakfast was a 1tsp of Barley Max Powder mixed with 4-8oz of Distilled Water. And that was it for the Barley Max.!!!

And we hit the road at 7:30am… it was much later than we wanted to be leave, but Mike didn’t get up any earlier so that’s when we left.

Mid Morning 8oz Juice Carrot, Celery, Cucumber

Lunch was Apples until I was satisfied.

Mid Afternoon 8oz Juice Carrot, Celery, Cucumber

Here’s where it all went to pot… at dinner. We just pulled off the interstate at our exit in Palm Coast and we decided to go to Wendy’s. I didn’t want to cook anything and they have a really great $1 menu. I ordered a Garden Salad, Baked Potato and a Fish Filet Sandwich.!!!

I know, but I had this really strong craving for the sandwich. It seems these days, I get really strong cravings for food and I can’t say no. It’s like I haven’t eaten in so long, it feels like my stomach is going to come out of my body and take over. I feel so ravaged by hunger, I eat anything and everything that’s not good for me.!! I don’t know how to cure this, but with little healthy snacks throughout the day?!?!

No Pilates Class this morning… instead,after my 1tsp of Barley Max Powder mixed with 4-8oz of Distilled Water,  I headed off to Church at the National Cathedral in Washington D.C..

Afterwards, I met up with a girlfriend of mine from Daytona Beach, Florida  for coffee. We met a the Dean and Doluca Shop in Georgetown off M Street. It was only a mile or 2 from the Cathedral, but it took me forever to get there. I ended up parking at Q Street because I wasn’t sure I’d get a good parking spot on M Street. Then I had to walk the 5 or so blocks in heals on cobble stone sidewalks. Best of all thought, I didn’t have a coffee or even a tea.

Instead, I had my Mid Afternoon 8oz Juice  At Robeks Fruit Smoothie place, where they also juice vegetables like Carrots, Celery, Spinach and Apple.

30 Minutes before Lunch 1tsp of Barley Max Powder mixed with 4-8oz of Distilled Water.

I noticed I was getting lower and lower on my Barley Max Supply, and was thinking I will never make it until my new shipment comes Tuesday.

We started packing for our journey back down to Florida, and I ate another Veggie Sandwich and some Hummus and Pita Chips.

Veggie Sandwich:

Ingredients:

Whole Wheat Bread

Hummus

1 Cucumber 

1 Orange Bell Pepper

Directions: Slice Bread, Wash and Slice Vegetables and layer on bread with Hummus spread.

Mid Afternoon 8oz Juice of Carrots, Celery, Spinach, Apples left over from my Robecks stop earlier in the day.

30 Minutes before Dinner 1tsp of Barley Max Powder mixed with 4-8oz of Distilled Water.

Dinner was a hodge podge of leftovers, Pita Chips and Hummus.

Afterwards, we felt a little adventurous, so we piled in the car and walked along the Potomac River for some exercise. It was a great day for it too. The sun was out and everyone was enjoying the day as well.

After my pilates class Saturday morning… we decided to go on a road trip to Northern Maryland and the West Virginia boarder to The Bovarian Inn.

Before we left, I drank my 1tsp of Barley Max Powder mixed with 4-8oz Distilled Water  for breakfast… and noticed the container was getting very low. I had placed a new order on Friday, but I don’t think I’ll be able to wait until Tuesday when I get a new shipment. 😦

I made an 8oz Juice of Carrot, Spinach, Celery for my Mid Morning Juice that I’d be drinking on the road.

30 Minutes Before Lunch 1tsp of Barley Max Powder mixed with 4-8oz Distilled Water.

Lunch was Apples until I was Satisfied… Lunch took place on the road while we were driving to West Virginia.

We finally got to the Bovarian Inn along the Potomac River boarder of West Virginia and Maryland. It’s a beautiful place to go just for the scenery alone and then the food, well it’s a Bovarian Eastern European Fare. The dining room had an old-dated european influence, but the view out of their big picture windows make up for the decor inside. 

I wanted to obstain from eating another lunch, but I had a hard time. Afterall, I was still a little hungry and my stomach was feeling empty. So I ordered a Vegetable Sandwich with Fried, Zucchini and Carrots. It was a nice lite  addition to my earlier lunch in the car.

Then we walked around and enjoyed the scenery of the mountains, the river below and each other. We took out sight seeing down into the middle of town where all the shops and people were bustling, but then it started to rain. We made it into the car before it started pouring down hard… and continued on back home.

We got up at 5am to get ready and out the door by 7:15am this morning, because I was going on the school field trip to Gettysburg Pennsylvania with 450 middle school kids from Potomac, Maryland.

This was a class field trip for Mikes son, so needless to say, I missed my pilates. But not to worry, I was going to be walking and hiking parts of the battle field, so I wasn’t worried.

So I packed a bag of my Fresh 8oz Juice of Carrot, Spinach, Celery for my Mid Morning Juice. Which I got to during a trip through the museum, where the kids had to fill out there packet of questions for a grade. FUN!!!!

Then we all got back on the tour bus for lunch…

30 Minutes before Lunch, I prepared a 1tsp of Barley Max Powder in a plastic bag and dropped it into my water bottle. Made a bit of a mess with it though, and not sure if I got the entire tsp. in there. 😦

Lunch was a couple of apples and some trail mix I mixed together with a hand full of Organic Cranberries, Organic Raisins and a Flaxseed Mix.

Then we stayed on the bus and went for our actual battlefield tour of Gettysburg. That’s were we drove into the town of Gettysburg and into the many battlefield  grounds. This was exciting, because we got out and toured some of the grounds and got the 411 on how these 3 days in July played out!

At 3pm, I was ready to go home and luckily that’s when our field trip ended and we started our 11/2 hour bus ride back home. When we got to the school, we had to wait for Mike to pick us up and he ended up getting lost, because it was the high school down the street from our morning drop off at the middle school.  So we started walking to the middle school when we saw Mike coming to pick us up.

When we got home, I made my Mid Afternoon 8oz Juice of Carrot, Celery, Spinach.

30minutes before we went to dinner 1tsp of Barley Max Powder with 4-8oz of Distilled Water.

Dinner was at Wildfire Restaurant where I had the Greek Salad with a Vinaigrette Dressing and some Roasted Vegetables.  I did also manage to stay away from the White Wine with dinner!!!

I woke up this morning and headed out to my Pilates Class for a 30 minute work out! And boy was it ever a workout.  Who knew a 30 minute jump board class would be so intense.

And as I was doing the class, I thought to myself that I should get back on the eating plan. Because if you look at the calendar, my birthday is exactly 14 days away.

This morning, I stepped on the scale and noticed I was at 162lbs. My goal weight though, is 144lbs. So that means I have to lose 16lbs in 14 days to be able to reach my goal.

Breakfast 1tsp Barley Max Powder mixed with 4-8oz Distilled Water

Mid Morning 8oz Juice of Carrot, Celery, Spinach. I did make a fresh juice this morning because Mike bought me some more carrots yesterday.

And drinking this Juice is difficult, because I have those donuts lingering in the kitchen still. And my stomach is rumbling so hard… it seems like it got used to eating all that crap yesterday.!

In an effort to get the donuts out of the house without eating them all, I have decided to hand the donuts out tomorrow morning to a bunch of middle school students. I decided to Chaperone a Field Trip to Gettysburg  with Mikes 14 year old’s school.

30 minutes before lunch 1tsp Barley Max Powder mixed with 4-8oz Distilled Water

Lunch will be either Apples until satisfied or Strawberries until satisfied. (This was my hopes, but I actually had the two leftover pieces of cheese pizza for lunch!)

30 Minutes before dinner  1tsp Barley Max Powder mixed with 4-8oz Distilled Water

Dinner was the leftover Swordfish Salad from Moby Dick and some roasted potatoes Mike made mixed with Onions and Sweet Potatoes.

SO MUCH FOR ME DOING IT!!!!!

Three days later, and I’m still in leg pain from Tuesdays Pilates Workout. But that didn’t stop me from going to the Pilates Studio. As eractic as my eating’s been , I need the added workout to keep feeling like I’m staying in shape.

I’ve grown a little bolder with what I am eating, in part because I’m doing my Pilates 4 to 5 days a week. I’ve noticed a lot of muscle definition and losing inches in my waist, thighs and arms. Looking in the mirror I’m noticing my fat pockets getting tighter, more bone definition and sleeker lines. It’s invigorating and also giving me the confident attitude to eat some of those bad foods too. In part because, I’ve gained a ravaging appetite from my dedicated weekly workouts and newly implemented strict eating.!!!!

For example, this afternoon Mike and I went to WholeFoods Grocery Store and  I felt a little entitled to pick up some Vanilla Lemon Whoopie Pie Cakes. First ingredient on the label was SUGAR!!!!

Before I even got so incredibly hungry I managed to keep my appetite in check through my Breakfast of 1Tsp of Barley Max Powder mixed with 4-8oz Distilled Water.

Mid Morning 8oz Juice of Carrot, Celery, Spinach

30 Minutes before lunch I managed to pack my 1Tsp of Barley Max Powder mixed with 4-8oz of Distilled Water and drank it on the road. Because for lunch, Mike got a taste for Persian Food so we went to the local Moby Dick Restaurant for Kabobs. I indulged in a Greek Salad with Grilled Swordfish.

Ingredients:

Iceberg Lettuce

Red Onion

Grilled Yellow Onion

Grilled Tomato

Olives

Later in the day, I missed my traditional 8oz Juice and traded it with a Berry Smoothie from Robeks Fruit Smoothie Shop. I asked for no sugar, powders or yogurt in mine. Unfortunately, the fruits were frozen in a juice so it’s not totally 100% Natural or Raw, more like 80 to 90% Natural or Raw.!

30 Minutes before dinner I mixed 1Tsp of Barley Max Powder with 4-8oz of Distilled Water.

Dinner was actually left overs from the night before of the Loaded Cucumber & Tomato Salad.
