Playing Catch Up

So much to post, so little time  :)

Today was pretty good, except for me almost passing out at the doctor’s office – oops! I am not good with needles or other not-fun things and I just got really hot today and felt like I was going to pass out. Thank goodness I didn’t, but that is never fun. The good thing is my stomach is doing a bit better! The pills are working and I’m hoping Nick and I will both be back to normal by the end of the week.

So, I have almost an entire’s day worth of food to post!

Before my doctor’s appointment, I had one of the blueberry chia muffins.


Still good, but I think I like them better heated up a little bit. I love the flavor, though.

Went to the doctor, paid $35 and left with a cup of water and a lollipip to get my sugar back up? I didn’t eat it – it was a gross flavor dum-dum and not my favorite (cream soda dum-dums are the best!)

Lunch was kind of random and thrown together, but it tasted good! I wasn’t sure how this would be when I packed everything up, but I liked the combination.


I brought 2 slices of my flax seed bread and brought a bunch of toppings:

  • 1 wedge laughing cow cheese
  • sauteed portobello slices
  • leftover roasted asparagus
  • sliced avocado


This was good! The asparagus was a little hard to eat so I think I would cut them into smaller pieces next time, but I loved the cheese with the mushrooms/asparagus/avocado. I ate the rest of the leftover asparagus that I couldn’t fit on the sandwich, too  :)

Plus some other “sides”:


a nice crispy apple


and a small handful of pretzels – about half a serving, probably?

I felt a lot better after eating lunch – that seemed to get me back to normal after my almost-fainting incident.

I really liked this lunch, but it was lacking in protein and I was feelin’ it this afternoon. I was so hungry!


I had about 2 Tbsp of crunchy pb and about 1.5 cups or something ridiculous of celery. Yum.

Around 4:30 today, the skies decided to open and just dump all the water they were holding! All of a sudden, there was this huge crack of thunder and then you could hear the rain pouring down on the building. Of course, I left my rain jacket in the car at lunch since it was all nice and sunny at noon today – I got soaked just walking from the office door to the car door! It rained really hard the entire way home and finally let up a bit by the time we got to the chiropractor. Everything went well there, but she had to use the hammer tool thing on my neck and I hate that thing.

We ran to the store after the appointment for mroe bread for Nick and some chocolate chips for a baking project tonight  :)  It smells amazing! I can’t wait to try it.

Even though I wasn’t sure how this meal would be on my stomach, Nick asked me if I wanted New River Grille, so we went there for dinner.


I didn’t get my normal, but I did still get onion rings – you just have to get them here! They’re so good! I got the blackened flounder with onion rings and green beans. Not the healthiest dinner, but it was good and just what I wanted. And I’m still feeling good!

I’ve got to get my lunch packed for tomorrow before I forget!

Make sure to tune in for the second Honduras post tomorrow morning  :)

What’s your favorite dum-dum/sucker flavor?


  1. Those onion rings look amazing!!

    I hate needles too!

  2. My favorite things? Grainy bread, asparagus, mushrooms and avocado…that sandwich looked perfect to me :)

    As for the classic Dum-Dum, it’s been so freaking long since I’ve had candy that I’m not sure what’s out there now. However, I would have to go with watermelon or strawberry. What’s up with that mystery flavor?

  3. I love Banana flavor. That sandwich makes my mouth water and I will def have to try it sometime!

  4. Ughh I’ve almost fainted a few times too. I wanted to be a doctor when I was in high school, but that unfortunate reaction to needles and blood sealed the deal. :P

    I love the cream soda Dum-Dums too! I also like cherry, root beer, and that mystery flavor.

  5. I love onion rings and those look AMAZING!!

    My favorite dumdum flavor is probably root beer or a fruit flavor. I don’t eat them much but I do indulge every now and again.

  6. Asparagus on a sandwich? Loves it!

    Is that a gala apple? Crispy, sweet apples are definitely my fav!

    I haven’t had a dum dum sucker in ages, but watermelon was always my favorite! ;)

  7. That sandwich looks absolutely amazing! I need to go buy some portabello mushrooms stat.

  8. Wow, that sandwich looks incredible! I love portobello mushrooms. Glad your stomach is feeling a bit better :)

    My favorite dum-dum flavor is watermelon! No question about it :D Root beer is delicious too, though.

  9. Hope you guys are feeling 100% soon!

    Root beer is my favorite!

  10. That sandwich sounds fabulous girl!!!! yumo.
    my fav dum-dum flavor would be rootbeer. I don’t eat them often, but thats a pretty solid flavor

  11. I love the mystery flavor! I haven’t had Dum-Dums in forever!!! My doctor never gives me treats anymore :-(

  12. I HATE needles too. Ahh. I haven’t had a dum-dum in gosh knows how long…I can’t even remember the flavors…sad!!!! I think I used to like rootbeer or something???
