This morning I was so excited because I actually had a chance to go to Pilates at 7am. Before hand, I made it a point to wake up early and make another Fruit Smoothie. I did so, because  I actually promised Mikes son I would make him Fruit Smoothies for breakfast every morning before school, and today it started!!!!

The bonus in this cenario, I had enough left over for a glass for myself. So, for Breakfast I drank my 1tsp Barley Max Powder with 3-8oz glass Distilled Water and went off to my Pilates class, Fruit Smoothie in tow.

I didn’t get to go to Pilates this morning, because Mike needed the car for business. So instead, I got ready and weighed myself and I registered at 162lbs.

I think that was good, for all the deviations I took from the eating plan. I was actually expecting to be heavier… but I will take 162lbs. So over all, I lost 10lbs in the 14 days of eating the foods prescribed in the Hallelujah Acres 14 Day Menu Plan.

Already this morning I did have my Breakfast of 1Tsp Barley Max Powder with 4-8oz glass of distilled water.

Lunch is still open for discussion. It turns out, we went to Olive Garden for lunch and I ordered the Soup & Salad. For the Soup I had the Minestrone. But I indulged so much on the salad, I was fool and couldn’t even get to the soup. So I brought that home.

We didn’t get home until late, so I wasn’t able to do my Mid Afternoon Juice nor the 1Tsp of Barley Max Powder with 4-8oz glass of Distilled Water.

I actually forgot to do that before we left again(I was so tired and hungry I didn’t want to make anything.!) for dinner. We stopped off at the Chicken Out place up the street at the Potomac Village where I had a Vegetable Salad Wrap. It was a solid Raw meal, except for the dressing they used. It was a Creamy Honey Mustard. I didn’t even know you were given a dressing or for that matter I wasn’t even asked what kind I wanted..!!! Sooooooo. Anyway!

 Then Mike also ordered a Baked Sweet Potato and a Regular Baked Potato and I had some of each too. After we came home I did make the Barley Max and drank it after dinner. But before the Fruit Smoothie I made.
