Starbucks Grande Iced Chai Latte w/Soy

Starbucks Grande Iced Chai Latte w/Soy

Tuesday mornings are my early Pilates Classes starting at 7am. I almost missed the class because I ended up leaving the house 2 minutes before 7… so I got there about 5 minutes late.

Anyway… I burned calories and built some core muscle. For all this work, I felt like I deserved a reward. So against my best judgement, I went to Starbucks and upgraded my drink to a Grande Iced Chai Latte with Soy.

Then I came home to take a quick shower. And after the shower, I was curious to see where my weight was. I had some additional snacking of Stacy’s Pita Chips again and dinner last night was huge. It was like I couldn’t keep my mouth shut.

So, I got on the scale and I saw 160lbs… and thought WHAT!!!! And then did a little happy dance and jumped into the shower. I’m so thrilled that I am down to this weight, it really feels GREAT!!

Then I bounced down the stairs to the kitchen and made:

Breakfast with 1Tsp Barley Max Powder mixed with Distilled Water

My Mid Morning 8oz Carrot, Vegetable Juice. For the Vegetable Juice, I put together some Cucumber and Spinach and POOF!

Last night I made a Colorful Marinated Salad and a Butternut Squash that was great. I didn’t boil the Butternut Squash enough, so I think it was a little harder than expected.

I ran over to the Farmers Market this morning to get all the veggies and I need to keep me through the week. I also got a bunch of Beets to add to my Juicing.

Since Thursday, I’ve been walking in the mornings which is great, but I feel hungry more throughout the day. And today after my lunch of left over Colorful Marinated Salad and TWO pieces of Cheese and Onion Pizza (ugh!!!) I ate a Special K Protein Bar Double Chocolate. It says the calories from it are only 180, but all the non-natural things in the bar are what worry me.:(

Special K Protein Bar

Special K Protein Bar

Coating(sugar, partially hydrogenated palm kernel oil, cocoa precessed with alkali, whey, nonfat milk, soy lecithin, sorbitan monostearate, salt, polysorbate 60, artificial flavors), soy protein isolate….etc. These are just the first couple of ingredients. The bar sounds boxed and chemically processed, not natural at all!. Not to mention made with animal products.

I was going to have a Yogurt; because it turns out I’m not eating enough beans to get my protein and alkaline balance. Unfortunately, Mike threw out the containers because he thought they were expired. I asked him, next time look at the expiration date before you throw it away.

So I drank my second Carrot Juice…., which I love, because it tastes like I’m drinking something with sugar. It kinda kills the mid afternoon sugar urge. For dinner, I ate the remaining Colorful Marinated Salad and I’ve been snacking on the Roasted Pepper Triscuts. But I think I’m done with them, so I’m just drinking water. I hope I’m able to keep out of the Chocolate, because last night I ate two pieces of Dark Chocolate. 

Tonight we’re watching the “Hope For Haiti Now” fundraiser…. it’s really spectacular. But still waiting to get through to make my donation.!!!
