First day back at home … and I missed a Pilates class. This day light savings time change really has kicked my but. I couldn’t wake up until 8:30am and by then, the Pilates class was over.

I realized when I was down in Key West… everyone had an alcoholic beverage, or an ice cream cone in there hands. It seemed like the bad foods and beverages were O.K. to eat, just because everyone else was doing it. So I indulged with ice cream Saturday & Sunday… and here I am on Tuesday eating it again. But if this is any consolation, the ice cream I’m eating today is raspberry sorbet (less cream!).

During dinner at The Outback Steakhouse Restaurant, I was soooo hungry I ate tooooo much Bread. The bread The Outback brings to your table IS NOT white bread; it’s pumpernickel dark bread. Not tooo bad (I don’t think), but I also did have Mike’s Baked Potato along with my Steamed Vegetables and Chopped Salad.

To help get rid of some of this fat and extra junk I ate, I’ll be able to get in some weights and crunches before bed.!!!!

I broke from the norm of eating ONLY RAW FOODS today. Mike made Turkey Cutlets with Potatoes & Onions for lunch. I hadn’t eaten cutlets since before I made my change to Eating Raw Foods and it was good to eat this fresh, healthy meal. The meal I thought wasw healthy, because of the vegetables in the Cutlets and the Salad, and the turkey meat is high in Protein and a much better meat for me.

Turkey Cutlets

Turkey Cutlets w/Garlic

Ingredients:

4Onions

6Potatoes

1Pkg Ground Turkey

4Tbls Olive Oil

Tumeric

Paprika

Sea Salt

Pepper

Directions:

Boil Potatoes in water and peel skin. While Potatoes are boiling, peel & chop Onions and then combine package of ground Turkey Meat with Potatoes and Onions. Begin hand mixing the ingredients and add seasonings. Mold the ingredients in to flat, round patties and place into grill with Olive Oil and add Garlic Cloves and grill for 15 minutes or until meat is cooked.

I actually got the opportunity to participate in this lunch creation by molding the ingredients in to patties.  It’s a good thing I got my Pilates workout this morning (Wednesday).

While the Turkey Cutlets were grilling, I decided to make a Garden Salad  with an Oil & Vinegar Dressing to go along with the Cutlets. This Golden Balsamic Vinegar I’m using tastes so good paired with the Olive Oil, I don’t need any kind of seasoning in the Dressing. And I had a bag of Baby Green Lettuce that needed to be used… so there you go!

Ingredients:

1Bag of Baby Greens

Garden Green Salad

Wednesday Green Salad

1Red Bell Pepper

1 Yellow Bell Pepper

1 Avocado

1Small Bunch of Broccoli

3Green Onions

1/2Can of Chick Peas

4Mushrooms

Directions:

Clean and Chop up all the Vegetables and add to washed lettuce and serve. Add Oil & Vinegar to taste.

Yesterday and today (Wednesday), I did pretty well with not eating sweets or junk… and it really feels good to eat fresh and raw. But I can’t say that was true for dinner time.

Onion, Peppers, Zucchini

Onion, Peppers, Zucchini

I got my Garden Green Salad out for dinner and warmed up the Grilled Onions, Peppers & Zucchini  I made Sunday and ate that for dinner. I added the Chick Peas to the Salad, because I realized I had the open can in the refrigerator. A great meal, filling and I didn’t crave anything for a while. It may have been because I had some Hummus and Sangek Bread afterwards.

But as the night progressed… while we were watching Wednesday Night Comedy on ABC, I wanted a Chocolate Dove Bar. That’s 260 calories of useless sugar and chemicals! I don’t know why I can’t keep my hands off this stuff? It’s not helpfull that Mike goes out and buys it either.!

Sunday Soup

Vegetable Soup

Sunday Soup

Vegetable Soup

I’ve been feeling so much better these last couple of days… I must have over done it with the day at the Space Museum Saturday… and the stretching and weights these last couple of nights. My back is killing me again.!!!!

While we were at the Space Museum Saturday, we stopped for lunch at the indoor McDonald’s and I had a Southwestern Salad w/out the Chicken. Then we went to see the IMAX Theatre presentation of Space Exploration, which was great. Afterwards, we went home and hung out.

Mike made a Persian meal with Plums and Turkey Meat. It’s more of a stew and I ate that with some White Rice. For desert… I ate some Raspberries, Blackberries, Flaxseed, Whipped Topping and Leftover Ice-Cream.

I’ve been keeping up on my Carrot Juice and found a new drink Smoothie from Bolt house Farms Strawberries and Bananas. Tried some last night!

This morning… Sunday I woke up with throbbing back pain. After I took my morning vitamins and drank the Barley Juice. Mike made me another Veggie Soup: so I had some with Whole Wheat Bread crumbs.
Carrots
Celery
Cream Corn
White Beans
Barley

This soup stock however, was made with left over Turkey from last night’s meal.

As the day progresses, with me on the bed sitting on the heating pad, I’ve got my Carrot Juice, Almonds, Apple and Banana to munch on.:)

It’s not Christmas as I remember as a child…. I’m in a foreign city (Potomac, MD) with no family and friends. The stockings aren’t hung from the fireplace… and no presents under the non existant Christmas Tree. Mike is Jewish, so he doesn’t celebrate Christmas.:( And so now, I guess I don’t either. But I still plan on going to Midnight(10pm) mass at the National Cathedral in D.C. and then going to morning mass as well.

I also wanted to drive to New York City for the day and maybe hit Serendipity, walk around the Plaza, or eat at the restaurant in the Crysler Building or even catch a midday show?!?!?! But I think Mike has really put the brakes on that idea.

Boy he’s sounding alot like the Christmas Grinch!!!!!

My back is still not 100%… I have more mobility than Sunday, but there’s still pain. So I’m taking it Very Slow!!!!

I did head out this morning for a Tall Starbucks Iced Pumpkin Spice Latte w/Soy and then I stopped off at the French Bakery for a Carrot & Zucchini Muffin, Bran Muff, and a Butter Croissant. I thought I’d start the day off with some sweets for a sour Mike. I ate the Carrot & Zucchini Muffin… it was delicious. Yum!!!! Yum!!!! Yum!!!!

P.S…. I did weigh myself Yesterday Morning and gained back 2lbs… I guess those treats and not working out have made their impact.!!!!:(

Bolthouse Carrot Juice

Carrot Juice

In an effort to conserve my Barley Max, I stopped taking it for a couple of days…

I did order a new 8oz container of it on Sunday… FedEx Two Day Air, so it should be here today(Tuesday) fingers crossed.

This morning… I realized there was some powder still left in the bottom of the container, so I took the last spoonful.

I think I will drink my glass of Carrot Juice and head out the door to start the day.!
