And So It Begins.

10 minutes – I’ve got 10 minutes until the very first college football game of the season!

It’s a little ridiculous how exciting I am :) But I don’t care! I love it!

This afternoon, I tried Coconut Water for the first time.


I don’t even remember how long I’ve had this, but I finally decided to try it today.


Mine was O.N.E. Coconut Water with a splash of Pineapple – I really liked it! I actually poured it into a large water bottle and added about 1-2 cups of water to dilute a bit (and save the rest for tomorrow!). Since it’s a little pricey, I don’t think I’ll buy a ton of it every week, but I’m definitely going to get more.

I had half the container of coconut water and some dried plums this afternoon while working away.

By the time Nick got home today, I was washing the last of our blueberries, cleaning the jars of jam I made at lunch, and already in my running clothes.

We did a little over 3 miles today, and I felt pretty good. Almost back to where I was last year, which is great. I know it will take me a while to get back to where I was, but today was a good day and reminded me of how a good run feels.

Just got back, showered, and heated up dinner –


We’re having the tuna pasta dish I made last night with some veggies on the side.

Not the  best “football watching” food, but oh well – the fun tailgating foods will be here soon enough :)

Wahoo!!!! Time for some football!



  1. I love how into football you are. I don’t really care one way about it, but I live in the dorm with all of my school’s football players, so I figure I should probably start brushing up on it, right?

  2. I like the flavored coconut waters, but the regular ones are a bit awkward. I dunno, it makes me a little sick. But the flavored ones taste so different!

    Enjoy the game!!!

  3. We’ve got perfect football watching weather here tonight. It’s about 65 degrees and we’ve got all the windows open and the game on. So exciting!

  4. So maybe the flavored coconut waters are good, or maybe because you diluted it. BUT, we tried one at work the other day & it was the most disgusting thing I’ve ever tasted!!

    Can’t wait for this weekend!!!

  5. you would be proud.. i spent an hour last night trying to understand football! and then i learned that college football and the NFL have different rules and all hell broke loose. i am determined to like it. i hope you will do some educational posts!

    • Yay!

      They DO have some different rules, but it’s not too bad. Not enough that I can’t keep up with either one – but I watch much more college than NFL.

  6. i’ve never had coconut water before, i am pretty curious, though…
