who ya gonna call!? stress busters..

20 Apr

I’ve been stressed. I have an odd assortment of things going on in my life right now, and I’m trying to make serious decisions/calm my nerves.

The first issue I have involves working from home. Lately I’ve been a wild procrastinator..today’s solution was to sit at Starbucks like a creep (with one cup of iced coffee) for about five hours. I got serious work done, and couldn’t help smiling in my pineapple tee. 😉

is it summer yet?

Yet another issue involves some weird allergic reactions/issues I’ve been having. My boss (a neurologist, lucky me for the free medical advice!) swears and swears that I am in fact allergic to milk. I’ve continued to consume cheese stick after stick because I am a complete ADDICT but have finally made the decision to listen to him and cut out the dairy for at least a week.

chocolate almond milk, anyone!?

A quick trip to Trader Joe’s for some non-dairy products, and I even nabbed this:


Verdict? THIS STUFF IS INCREDIBLE. I only bought two bottles of the Zico Mango Coconut Water…but I wish I stocked up like it was goin’ out of business. DANG. Please don’t look too closely at my legs- Danny told me they are hairier than his.

Today’s workout included a painful (..this stomach of mine) 4 mile run and some shredding with Jillian Michaels.

And the ultimate and final most important stress buster?!?


mah best friend!

AH. We’ll both be in Jersey for Easter… 😀 and I’m the giddiest girl about it. Courtney is my true home girl, she listens to me whine on a constant and that deserves a medal in itself.

I also convinced my little bro to sign up for a local 5k with me Saturday morning. 😀 So excited to run with that 14 year old speed demon.

Two more sleeps ’til Jersey! Better get my outfits ready:

danny and jamie, or paulie and snook?!

And finally, to prove JUST how much Danny looked like Paulie D last Halloween:

    Ooooh I hope you are not allergic to dairy, that would not be good for your cheese addiction 😉

    Oh…the Jersey Shore. It cracks me up. I hope your milk experiment proves to be helpful:)

      ME TOO! I shouldn’t be furthering the stereotypes of my home state, but hey…it’s half true 😉

      THANKS! We’ll see if I make it!

    haaha love the jersey shore-like pics! I really wanna try the coconut water. I may have to nab some next time I’m at tjs!

    • cupcake dynamite April 20, 2011 at 11:06 pm #

      Definitely! I’m not that into plain coconut water, but the mango is awesome.

    haha WOW he really does look like him 🙂 hilarious.

    i have been soooo stressed recently too! I havent been able to fit in my workouts so i know thats a problem. I’m also starting a dairy free lifestyle (well attempting) – I started on Monday. This is NOT easy.

    • cupcake dynamite April 21, 2011 at 8:07 am #

      O MAN! YES missing workouts doesn’t help, we need those endorphins! I hope you de-stress some more soooon. 😦 And it sounds reallllly hard- ah! We can stick together!

    That is my favorite coconut water! I actually just got back from TJs with my own bottle. 🙂 I love your pineapple tee. So cute! About a year ago, I learned that I am lactose intolerant. It was a challenge at first, but now it is so easy. I’m in love with almond milk (chocolate and vanilla make me so happy), so that helps. The one thing I do miss is cheese. 😦

  8. Christine April 21, 2011 at 11:16 am #

    OMG that is hilarious and so spot on it’s scary. can you come to the blogger meetup on may 1st?!?!?! would love to meet you and discuss nyc and running! xoxox

    Good luck cutting out dairy! I have some weird allergy issues too so I can relate and really hope you figure out what it is. With almond milk that Zico drink you’ll be goood…I LOVE that stuff!
