dyk, today is day 2 of calorie counting

dyk, I'm not having fun

dyk, but shopping for bigger pants isn't fun either

dyk, I wanted a greasy grilled cheese and fries for lunch. I had mixed greens, cucumbers, peppers, corn, a mixed bean salad, and as a compromise 2 pieces of chile bok choy (the chile sauce was probably full of sugar) and 4 pieces of lemon/garlic potatoes.

dyk, I left a piece of bok choy and most of the bean salad - but I DOWNED those potatoes!

dyk, I have an hour long meeting in 10 minutes

dyk, after that, I'm out of here

dyk, I just may make it to the gym...maybe

dyk, we are supposed to have severe storms, but the start time keeps getting later & later

dyk, l'm supposed to run 3 miles today per my training plan...you know, the plan that I was supposed to follow all summer but never did. Coincidently, Sunday was supposed to have been a half marathon ANYWAY, so I'm just going to jump right back in...

dyk, delusional, I am clearly VERY delusional

dyk, I know - considering Brooklyn JUST had a tornado, I think I'm skipping the gym

dyk, my gym is within walking distance...but it's a 15 minute walk

dyk, maybe I'll unpack something

dyk, and I'm NOT impressed with the 'updated' Starbucks reward program

dyk, no more free soy, no more free syrups

dyk, I'm glad I switched to Blonde Roast with the occasional soy latte treat

dyk, black coffee is calorie free - or nearly calorie free

dyk, we were just on a call with our California office

dyk, I told them that as soon as we hung up, I was leaving

dyk, the guy that moved from Boston said 'i would too...you realize we left Boston and now we are living through earth quakes and tornados? What were we THINKING?'

Dyk ugh, I'm annoyed by the stupid Starbucks changes too! No more free soy???

Dyk please. I'm in Seattle, city home to a hundred awesome, small, local, coffee shops. Most of which have better coffee than Starbucks. Starbucks had two advantages: there's one on every corner, and I got free soy.

Dyk I will be going elsewhere whenever it's not inconvenient. If I'm going to pay $4+ for a coffee, it's going to be the best!

dyk, surprisingly, there aren't really any good coffee places around here

dyk, there are 3 places that are ok - one has limited hours and isn't actually that close (but bonus - they have almond milk and good food), one has VERY limited hours (8-5 M-Sa...yea, no but is literally half a block away), and one has only 'ok' coffee but has wonderful hours (but they barely speak English, the woman is snotty, and the place is always disorganizedly crowded). Only one place has coffee that is even approaching Starbucks and all are more expensive.

dyk, none have any sort of loyalty program.

dyk, and they are all cash only.

dyk, and as for by my office - well, I work in Times Square and I hate tourists so I'm not interest in finding a 'local' place.

dyk, so really, I'm glad that I made the switch to black coffee...at least I broke my 2-3+ times a day latte habit so now I won't go broke.
