Here, there, everywhere

14 May

The past two weeks have been surprisingly hectic given that I’m still not working. I saw the back specialist and he said I’m still not cleared for work but I’m supposed to increase my physical therapy visits and start getting back (slowly) into workouts. Not the news I was hoping for but, better than nothing. I go for an MRI tomorrow just to make sure it isn’t anything worse than they think.

Then hubby came home one night and told me he was leaving for a 2 day trip in NYC the next day. Hurry, hurry, hurry… I was able to get the dogs taken care of and get packed to join him and visit one of my best friends who lives up there. Definitely wasn’t clean eating while there but oh the gluten free treats! I made it into a foodie trip for half of it while hubby and best friend were working. I had gluten free cupcakes and muffins and doughnuts (oh my!). On the plus side we did walk or metro everywhere we went and I kept up with my PT exercises so I didn’t feel as guilty.

After that we were home for about 2 days and then went to a family graduation in VA for an overnight trip. It was a beautiful drive and so great to see all my family. Again, not the best eating but we went on some walks around the resort and did a short core workout… it’s a little victory.

Are you gluten free? If so, do you have a favorite gluten free bakery (near you or otherwise)? Here were my NYC gluten free eats:

Breakfast at Tu-Lu’s


Almond Raspberry Crumble

Lunch at Bistango


Gluten free penne pasta

Breakfast at BabyCakes (don’t judge, I shared)


Mocha doughnut, Cinnamon Sugar doughnut, Pumpkin Cupcake        (All Vegan too)

    My husband is gluten free and we found the best coffee and gluten free bakery called Tulas. They have the best focaccia bread that we like to make pizza out of. Yum!

      That’s the pasta we finally settled on! I much prefer it to the brown rice option
