Pumpkin Spice All the Things! The Tanktimus Fall Challenge


Recommended Posts

Image result for pumpkin spice meme

 

As a Texan enduring San Antonio Summers, I love fall for a lot of reasons, one of which is that the worst of the heat is over in September. I was also struggling to come up with a theme for this challenge, and it hit me, I LOVE PUMPKIN SPICE. Pumpkin pie is my favorite pie, and I love that flavor profile. I have already bought a pumpkin ale (Waiting to drink it) and two boxes of Pumpkin Spice K-Cups. The goals are going to stay pretty similar.

 

8 Lift days: I'll continue on with Juggernaut, Zero week will see me doing the intensification phase of the 8s.

6 Walk days: I struggled with getting workouts in on Fridays, which needs to happen in order to get six walk days in. As things start to cool off walking outside is even more enjoyable than it normally is.

6 Yoga days: Also didn't get all 6 last time due to not working out on Fridays. This time I can only use 3 sessions from the water series, the other sessions must be Fire, star, or the yin yoga from NF yoga.

Domestic Rangering:

I'm still being vague here, but clean the apartment once a week and continue working on decorating.

Cook Paleo and no more than 3 variances a week.

Soon I'll drop this back to two variances.

Probably not what you need, but the last time I was at Krispy Kreme in San Antonio (the one near Stone Oak) they had the best Pumpkin Spice doughnuts.  Could very well be the tastiest doughnut ever!

Krispy Kreme doesn't do much for me. I've never been a big fan, however, I'd be prepared to spend a variance on pumpkin things.

Pumpkin pie is amazing, then people started thinking to themselves, "People love pumpkin pie, lets make things that taste like pumpkin pie" and the rest is history. The Pumpkin Spice Latte at Starbucks may or may not be what started the trend. So the whole pumpkin craze has more to do with Thanksgiving (When pumpkin pie is a common dessert) than haloween, where pumpkins are carved more than eaten.

You and my husband would get along quite fantastically xD He's a HUGE pumpkin spice fan. I don't have many strong opinions on it, but I've already bought him Pumpkin Spice Cream Cheese.

But see, pumpkin PIE and pumpkin SPICE are two different things. Pumpkin spice doesn't even necessarily contain pumpkin. It's just a yummy mix of cinnamon, cloves, ginger, allspice and nutmeg.

I don't dislike pumpkin.  I like it in fact.   But the level of obsession people display is downright frightening!

Add in that my birthday is Nov 29th, which 9 out of 10 times lands on the weekend of Thanksgiving - means that I AM SO SICK AND TIRED OF TURKEY DINNER AND PUMPKIN PIE AS MY B-DAY FOODS!!!!

 

But I will tough out all the orange gifs and memes on this thread for my dear friend Tank!
