Adruino Uno,Esp8266 esp-01 Module & Ds3231 Issue

Im having an issue with the esp8266 esp-01 module and the ds3231 working together using an Arduino Uno.
When I upload the code below something is causing major issues like disconnects and it wont send notification, date & time to the blynk app. I have tested by removing the RTC libraries, functions and timers and only left the send notification and it works perfect, sends the notification. Can someone look at my sketch and see right off what my problem might be? Or what ds3231 Library and sketch that will work with this setup


  Download latest Blynk library here:

  Blynk is a platform with iOS and Android apps to control
  Arduino, Raspberry Pi and the likes over the Internet.
  You can easily build graphic interfaces for all your
  projects by simply dragging and dropping widgets.

    It's very tricky to get it working. Please read this article:

  Simple push notification example

  App project setup:
    Push widget

  Connect a button to pin 2 and GND...
  Pressing this button will also push a message! ;)

  // Set ESP8266 baud rate

  Blynk.begin(auth, wifi, ssid, pass);
  // You can also specify server:
  //Blynk.begin(auth, wifi, ssid, pass, "", 8442);
  //Blynk.begin(auth, wifi, ssid, pass, IPAddress(192,168,1,100), 8442);

Blynk.notify("Chicken Coop Online");

timer.setInterval(1000L, sendTime );

void loop()

Issue Solved by removing Blynk.notify(“Chicken Coop Online”); from void setup
