On The Road Again

8 Apr

Hi all—what a day! I’ve been up since 515A but still going strong. I packed up the car (and Lincoln) and we were on our way! I had to get a MAJOR caffeine fix for the seven hour drive and luckily, there is a Starbucks two minutes away from where I live. I had a couple for a free drink so I got a Venti Skinny Cinnamon Dolce Latte with an extra shot of espresso and an egg white and turkey bacon english muffin sandwich.


Lincoln was intrigued by the sandwich and had reason to be, it was fantastic!

I jammed to Donna Summer and The Killers until I reached my coveted destination of Sheetz

For those who don’t know what Sheetz is, it’s the best gas station ever!! They have computers inside where you can select what you want—bagel sandwiches, biscuits, subs, wraps, nachos and more! Plus they have a coffee bar and you can order your drink on those computer as well. Unfortunately, I was still full from my Starbucks meal but stopped to use their restroom, take Lincoln out and revel  in the greatness of Sheetz.

Happy to be on the road!

I snacked on a Mojo Peanut Butter Pretzel bar on the way

Lincoln living the ruff life 🙂

A vision of Richmond for you

I found another Sheetz and ordered a large skim iced latte with sugar-free cinnamon and vanilla–it was almost Starbucks league 🙂

After some road work and bumper to bumper traffic, we finally made it to my friend’s house in Maryland!

The doggies got to meet and hang out

Meet Riley!

He’s a tad bigger than Lincoln

Lincoln likes to think that people are jungle gyms

We hung this afternoon since both of us were exhausting and then headed out to dinner. We  hit up The Vegetable Garden-a fabulous vegetarian, vegan and organic restaurant in Rockville, MD.

They had a combo meal that included soup and two mini entrees:

I got Hot and Sour Soup

Moo Shi Vegetables

General Tso’s Chicken

OMG—All of it was fantastic!  The faux chicken tasted like chicken so I am not sure how they make it taste so good. If you live near Rockville, try this place out, you will NOT be disappointed.

After that, we rolled over to water zumba. I wasn’t sure what to expect but it was like regular zumba just not as high impact. The instructor wasn’t in the water so it was easy to see what movements she was doing (because I wasn’t sure if we would be able to see what she was doing) . It involved a lot of arm movement,hip shaking and swishing around. I kept laughing because the instructor told us to shake everything and I couldn’t shake anymore–I felt like Tickle Me Elmo shaking everything I got! It started to rain and was lighting out so we didn’t get to finish the class but got a good 50 minutes of workout time in.

Now, we are just hanging and watching Clueless-love this movie! I cannot wait to sleep in tomorrow 🙂
