What to do in Naples… well we decided to take a kayak down the river. It was a beautifully hot day in Naples, Florida Saturday morning. Dressing in barely nothing was the key this Memorial Day weekend.

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

No Mid Morning 8oz Juice…

After our Kayaking… I was hot, hungry and thirsty!!! So we ended up finding a Whole Foods Grocery Store, where they actually Juiced Vegetables. For my Mid Afternoon 8oz Juice Carrot, Celery, Cucumber.

Then we went through the buffet line at WholeFoods where I ate a Spinach Salad with Red Onions, Lentils, Chick Peas, and Oil and Vinegar Dressing. Then I tested some of the Guacamole and Salsa and some Orzo. It was really filling. I think I may have eaten too much!!!!

Back at the hotel, we showered and relaxed watching T.V. and snacking on Pistachio Nuts,. Not really interested in dressing up for dinner, we hit the Complimentary Bar on the 4th floor. I ended up snacking on some Carrots, Broccoli and crackers. I had a glass of White Wine. 

Unfortunately, during the night I got viciously sick and spent most of the night in the restroom. 😦 Not a good thing for our early morning Dolphin Experience Sunday.!

Mike and I think the Pistachios might have been the culprit here… because he got sick too!!!

In the middle of my brisk walk this morning… I got hit with some rain. So I picked up the pace and ran home the rest of the way.

I made my Mid Morning 8oz Juice of Carrot, Celery, Cucumbers and then headed off to the shower. Again this morning I had some appointments in Daytona to attend to in the morning. Then my afternoon was open to work from home.

For Lunch I remembered that Wendy’s had a nice Garden Salad, so on my way home, I stopped in and got at Garden Salad. I took it home and proceeded to eat the salad on a pile of papers in my office and grabbed an Apple to enjoy as well.

Then I hit the Walmart, to do a more extensive shopping adventure.

After last night’s fried fishplate at the clubhouse down the street, this morning I needed to do some work. So I went to a Pilate’s class at the local gym this morning (Wednesday).  I can’t find any Pilates studio with reformer machines here in Palm Coast. Infact, Yesterday I was looking for a Pilate’s studio and went into the gym for a tour of their facilities. I got the schedule for pilates classes and today was the first class I took. It was good, but nothing like Potomac Pilates.

Afterwards, I went running around and met up with a friend for lunch. I did really well and had the Apple, Cranberry Spinach Salad with a vinegarette dressing. I did indulge though in two pieces of cherry bread.

For dinner, we went to Carrabba’s Restaurant in St. Augustine. That’s about 30 miles north of our house in Palm Coast. I didn’t feel like cooking, nor did Mike so that’s what we did. It was happy hour when we got there, so I had the house Pinot Grigio.

Then the waitperson suggested Fried Zucchini Strips so we tried it. And they were sooooo good.  I ordered a Mediterranean Salad with no cheese and Mike and I split the Penne Franco.  Penne Pasta with Mushrooms, Roasted Tomato with Olive Oil and Seasonings. A lot like the Rigatoni Martino that used to be on the menu.
