Fall officially arrived in the form of a (nonfat, no whip) Pumpkin Spice Latte this morning.


Sadly, it just wasn’t all that good.  After years of drinking unsweetened coffee (with the very occasional mocha thrown in there), I just don’t have a taste for sweet coffee anymore.

Unless, of course, it’s coffee ice cream.  That I can do.

Almost like yesterday, I had some yogurt (1/2 c. fage, 1/2 c. plain whole milk dannon) with blueberries and walnuts.  I used to eat this combo but I now prefer blackberries and am not feeling the walnut thing.


I had coffee #2 – Starbucks is still doing their “treat receipts” where a grande iced drink is $2 with a receipt after 2pm – which ended up being lunch.


It was pouring rain and the top of my cup was not spared in the 2 second walk to my car.

I had an iced coffee with about a third of a cup of whole milk.  It was so good.

I also had a big spoonful of white chocolate peanut butter crack



and this Peach Chobani that I received yesterday.  I liked this one, too.  It reminded me of the peach yogurt I used to eat when I was little – creamy and peachy but not artificially so.

I went for a run when I got home (first workout since getting sick on Monday) but I definitely had too much coffee today and had trouble breathing.  One of the symptoms I developed before I went GF was acid reflux (sexy, I know).  It has never gone away and gets worse if I drink too much coffee, which is pretty much every day.  I need to cut back a little and/or investigate taking different medicine (I take Prilosec) to manage it.  I did 2 miles before I gave up.  The good news is that my legs feel OK with all the taping and icing and it felt easy, I just didn’t feel well.

I had another surprise waiting on my doorstep when I got back.



Thanks Larabar!!!

They sent:

  • Apple Pie
  • Cashew Cookie
  • PB&J
  • Tropical Fruit Tart

These will not last long in my house!

Dinner was another repeat – baked veggies from yesterday.


And another attempt at zucchini chips.


Still not quite chip-like, but I’m okay with that.  They’re tasty little zucchini rounds and it’s another excuse to dip something in ketchup, so I can’t complain.

Chocolate chips and wine are in my future, as is last night’s episode of Glee.  I can’t believe I’ve been sucked into that show… but I have.  And it’s awesome.

Happy almost Friday!
