I was MIA last night because Ben and I had a date.
That is good
But, I got sick last night.
That is bad
We went to Cheesecake Factory and I was super excited to indulge. I had a light lunch and figured I would order something fabulous at the restaurant. Unfortunately I was feeling “weird” and all I wanted was a fancy salad. Which isn’t bad, but I always get salads and wanted to branch out today.
I ordered the Luau Salad –
Grilled Chicken Breast Layered with Mixed Greens, Cucumbers, Green Onions, Red and Yellow Peppers, Green Beans, Carrots, Mango and Crisp Wontons with Macadamia Nuts and Sesame Seeds. Tossed in Our Vinaigrette
The outside seating was great for taking pictures, but it started raining shortly after getting our food. The staff quickly moved us to a table inside.
But that made for bad dessert pictures. And our dessert was the highlight of my
night year! We got Chris’s Outrageous Chocolate Cake. Yes, we went there
A Cheesecake Factory Original – Layers of Moist Chocolate Cake, Chewy Brownie, Toasted Coconut-Pecan Frosting and Creamy Chocolate Chip Coconut Cheesecake.
It was outrageous all right That thick slice right in the middle is cheesecake. My only negative comment is I don’t really like that coconut/pecan icing. It wasn’t good. But, the chocolate made up for it.
After dinner we went to see Hot Tub Time Machine. It was okay, but I was already feeling sick at this point and was trying not to fall asleep the whole time.
When we walked out of the theater I felt super nauseous. I barely made it home and headed straight for the restroom where I made close friends with the toilet. I don’t know what exactly made me sick, but I doubt it was food poisoning.
If you’re not taking the hints…I barfed. I basically hung out in the restroom for an hour until I felt like I was okay.
This morning I rehydrated as much as I could and decided to try and go for a run. I somehow managed to bust out 10 solid miles!!!! This was a better run than last weekend too.
Remember how I ran Disney sick? After that I decided I would never run sick again. But, I’m a runner, which also means I am crazy.
Breakfast: When I got home I made a massive smoothie with protein powder, ice, water, chia, maca, banana, xantham gum.
See you in a bit!
