To wind up my slacker eating habits.. Sunday I kept the food intake to a minimum, knowing what I was going to embark on Monday.

After I missed massed this Sunday morning.. the three of us went into D.C. for some history and to enjoy the day. I walked down Pennsylvania Ave along the white house lawn and was taken aback by the traditional beauty there. Then walked across the street to check out Jackson’s statue in the park.

We headed over to Virginia to Tysons Mall to check out the new movie “Date Night”. It was a blast…. love those two actors, Tina Fey and Steve Carrell.

Then afterwards, we headed over to Olive Garden Restaurant for my usual Minestrone Soup and Salad. I had one serving of each and was fully satisfied with it.

Then for a little dessert Sunday night I made a

Strawberry & Banana Smoothie

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!!!!

Robeks Smoothie

Berry Burst Smoothie

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.

Bolthouse Carrot Juice

Carrot Juice

I can’t remember the last time I actually Juiced Carrots, Celery, Beets, Apples, etc.? We left for Colorado the week of November 15th… and it’s been since then. Almost a month since I’ve drank freshly juiced vegetables. I miss it!!!

But I am drinking the Bolthouse 100% Carrot Juice, when I remember.

Which is today… I’m on my second glass of the juice, which I’m not denying myself because it’s been a while. And it tops off a good day of going out to lunch and later to a movie.

We bared the cold and rain this afternoon to visit one of Mike’s sons friends family restaurant. It’s a pizza shop in the D.C. area called Angelica’s and they have some great dishes. I had a small Pizza with Wheat Bread, no Cheese, Portobello Mushrooms, Spinach, Sundried Tomatoes and a Tossed Green Salad with Olive & Vinegar dressing.

Then we went to Tyson’s Mall in Virginia to see a movie…. we picked “Old Dogs” with Robin Williams and John Travolta. Never laughed so hard. I take that back, I did laugh that hard, if not harder at “There’s Something About Mary”!

Ya know they say, laughter burns calories. Well, I needed that theory to be actuality, because I over did it. I bought a White Cherry ICEE and when you buy two they give you a free Popcorn. Plus, Mike’s son wanted Peanut M&M’s… so as you can tell, I had the ICEE, Popcorn, and some M&M’s. Needless to say, I didn’t feel so hot after the movie. My stomach was in some serious pain.

Pain which subsided, because I did have my Pizza leftovers and drinking my Carrot Juice.
Tomorrow is a busy!!! Oil change on the car, phone calls, etc!!!
