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.

I took another class this morning at my Potomac Pilates Workout Gym… and this one really got me sweating.

It’s called Jump Board Pilates, and it’s geared to get your cardio up using the same Pilate moves. You’re basically lying down on the Reformer Machine, but it’s all high energy and you’re using a board to push off.

For an hour, I worked out all my body and really felt it!!!

After the hour, Mike picked me up from my class because he had an early morning meeting. From there, we ran to Costco for some office supplies and groceries, the post office and then to the local grocery store for more supplies.

Apple, Pear and Walnut Salad

Not to long ago we got back to the house, unloaded the car, I took a shower and then I ate some of my leftovers from yesterday. The Apple, Pear and Walnut Salad and the Whole Grain Rigatoni Dish were still as good today, as they were yesterday.

For an after lunch treat, I indulged on two small pieces of Jelly Danish that Mike bought at Costco. But to get the sweet tooth out of my system, I’m drinking some Vedge Juice. Which really tastes great.

I’ve realized, in order to get the numbers going down on the scale I have to kick the sweets out.  And keep my portion control down. This sounds like a broken record, but it needs to be done. No matter what!!!!
