Danielle Runs on Dunkin’
Sorry I didn’t post yesterday or comment on all of your blogs. But thank you for all your kind comments. I have so much on my mind but unfortunately I can’t share it here just yet. This weekend was a tough one, I kept busy yesterday morning but then towards of the end of the day all the stress just hit me at once and I was crying on and off for a while. It feels weird that I can’t discuss anything on here just yet, it’s like I’m keeping a secret from my best friend or something, because so far this year I’ve shared almost everything with you guys, and I know that if I could tell you all what was going on you’d be able to offer some advice and kind words, which I really need right now.
Since that’s really all I can say, I’ll just move on to this weekends eats.
Yesterday morning I had to go to the chiropractor with my mom so I stopped on my way to Dunkin Donuts I was craving Ice Coffee.
I also picked up a multigrain bagel and took it back to my mom’s house to quickly eat before we had to leave. I used a small amount of butter on the bagel.
I ate a little more then half and then we were on our to the chiropractor. After our appointment we were on our way to check out an assisted living community for my grandparents. It was a really nice place and after seeing the menu I was really hoping we’d get to have some lunch there. Unfortunately we’d only get lunch if my grandparents came. The place was really nice and I’m hoping my grandparents decide to come here because it’s right down the street from where I work and I’d definitely get to see them a lot more often, as they live in the Poconos right now, and I don’t get to see them as often as I’d like.
Once I returned to my parents I had the unfortunate chore of laundry (way too much laundry, it’s been a while oops.) I had a piece of bread with pb since I was a little hungry.
On Andrew’s way home from work he stopped at Tropical Smoothie Cafe and got me the same smoothie I got a couple weeks ago. After a few sips I started to feel really itchy, and my leg was breaking out in hives. That’s the reaction I get to strawberries (which sucks because I love them), but the smoothie shouldn’t have strawberries in it, it didn’t taste like strawberries but I’m wondering if maybe the blender wasn’t properly cleaned between making mine and somebody else’s. Once I stopped drinking it within 30 minutes I felt fine. I only drank about a 1/4 of this gigantic smoothie but I figured I’d share a picture anyway.
Once I felt better we headed out to the gym. I was using the Lat Raise machine and an older guy just stood there watching me after one set he very rudely and loudly said “Are you going to be done with that soon?!” Dude the gym is empty move on to another machine for a few minutes. I told him I had more sets and he continued to stand there and watch me. Creep. Once I moved on I was setting the weights on another machine and someone asked me if I was using it, he said it a lot nicer so I let him use it first, but for real, the place was empty why was everyone trying to use whatever I wanted to? Then we were in the movie theater and I was using a treadmill, as I said before my heart rate monitor transmits and displays on treadmills next to me, after running for a few minutes, the guy next to me yelled in front of everyone there, “Do you have a heart thing on or something!?” Ugh so embarrassing I apolgizied and he said it was okay but he was only walking so of course my heart rate was higher and I guess it freaked him out a little. What a day.
For dinner last night I had my leftover pizza from Friday. I was literally craving it.
After dinner and moping around the house I got dressed and headed out to meet up with my friends, it was just what I needed to get my mind off of everything. I drank some vodka and diet cokes, which probably helped as well, we got home around 12:30 and I read and went to bed. I felt much better today then I did yesterday and got up and enjoyed a smoothie for breakfast. After my incident yesterday I was craving a smoothie and was happy to finally have one. It was a little overcast this morning but really warm so I enjoyed this out on the deck with Andrew.
This smoothie included:
- 1 Scoop protein powder
- 1 banana
- 1/2 a cup skim milk
- 4 ounces POM juice
- and 1tbsp pb
So yummy and just what I needed. I love smoothies for breakfast! After my smoothie we got dressed and ran some errands. I was feeling extrememly tired so we stopped to get coffee and some food. We decided to once again hit up Dunkin Donuts. I got a medium coffee with skim milk and splenda, and a veggie flatbread sandwich.
The flatbread sandwich was just okay, a little bland, I wish I had some hot sauce for it, if I got it again I definitely would spice it up a little, it’s a good option if your out and about though.
After visiting with Andrew’s parents, sister, and grandma we headed home. The sun had come out and it was beautiful I actually threw on some shorts and a t-shirt and sat outside on the deck reading, until a squirrel tried to join us and scared the crap out of me and sent me running back inside. I’m a baby I know. The sun went away as quickly as it had come out but we had already decided to have a bbq.
I had a veggie burger with a string cheese melted on top, with romaine lettuce, and pickles.
And also threw some sliced garnet yam on the grill for “chips”.
I think I liked them better grilled then baked, can’t wait to do this some more in the summer.
Now I’m going to spend some time catching up on my blog reading and then head off to bed. Hope you all had a fabulous weekend!
