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.

So far so good, we got in around 8:30pm Pacific Time Monday night and ate Salad, Rice, and Okra with Eggplants. I really wasn’t hungry, but I didn’t want to offend Mike’s mother who made the lovely meal for us earlier. It was delicious as always and very similar to my Raw Eating Plan.

Thankfully, Persian food is fruit & vegetable based. Most of the meals made in the culture are stew type meals made with or without some meats. Regardless of what you eat, there’s always white rice on the side.

But here, I will have to really work hard to stay strong and on track, because already, I’m getting the business about not eating meat. I explained to Mike’s mother that I’m eating only Raw Foods, Vegetables and no meat or meat products. She proclaims, you have to eat meat. If you don’t eat meat you get sick…. some of the same thinking and opinion I endured with my girlfriend Kristie. And then, it seemed everyone was against me, because Mike ganged up on me then. But so far, he seems to be sticking up for me and preaching my praises..
