Jenifae's Raw Journey
Easter Day was Yesterday..........
I'm amazed at how well I did yesterday. I woke up feeling good. I didn't have time to work out as when going to my Son's he is 3 hours away. So, I have to get all the animals set up for us being gone all day. I usually feed the horses 4 times a day. So, it's a long day and we don't have our backyard finished yet so, they're in the house. Needless to say we can't be gone for more then 12 hours. That's why I like when they can come here. Anyhow, a little long winded on just that.
I got my Coleslaw, Green Smoothie, Apples, Dried Fruit, and my GD's Easter Baskets all packed. I packed some sprouted almonds, too. Thinking - "Just in case" That's like a Drug Addict bringing a syringe "just in case". A total set up for relapse.
So, while preparing everything and making my smoothie I nibbled a little bit on Mango and dried fruit. Not much at all. I took 2 gulps of the Green Smoothie before packing and off we went.
Before, picking up my Mom we stopped at Starbucks. I was debating Soy Mocha vs Tea. I thought: (another grand one) "It's Easter". So, Soy Mocha won. It was sooooooooooooooo Yummy! I have to be honest. I sipped on it and savored it. I am usually a gulper.
After, fighting traffic almost all the way there my younger son called & they called him into work. Yes, I said work. He got a JOB! Doing what he LOVES - Tattoos! So, we stopped at his shop. The couple that own it are really nice and have taken Rob in like family. They are very nice. Not the typical. Very family oriented. While visiting Rob I was so hungry I ate an apple.
Off to Jay's house. We got there and the Violet was already Chocolated out! They already had their Easter Egg Hunt but, he was still cooking Hamburgers & Fries for everyone. I pulled out the coleslaw and DH & my Mom were the only ones who ate it. But, they loved so....... I pulled out my Green Smoothie and drank the whole thing down and then snacked on the dried fruit I made -Yum! While they chowed down Hamburgers and Fries. Hamburgers never bother me but, I was excited that the French Fries didn't even phase me.
The girls we so so cute. Ariel is still just a "Wee Chubby Little Baby" But, Violet sure enjoyed the basket I got her. She kept taking the chocolates out of the plastic eggs and back in them. She was so busy reorganizing. It was so cute. She was so tired. She was fighting it off and falling asleep while sitting next to Daddy and then CurPlunk - Out like a Light! hehehe!
It was a nice time. We could only spend like 3-4 hours there and then back in the traffic jam. Dropped my Mom off and he got Drive thru and I pulled out an Apple and Oh - there's the almonds. Needless to say I ate a little over a handful. Here's what I learned from that and the Coffee. The almonds did not feel as satifying as especially Fruit and GS's do. Last night I tossed and turned and was jumping out of my body and itchy from the coffee. I told DH to remind of that the next time I think a Soy Mocha sounds yummy!
Sorry I wrote a book...........I'm dragging today too. Hung over from the Yummy Backstabbing Soy Mocha. LOL!
