Naughty Consumption

I have developed this bad love of something new.  It's certainly not a daily indulgence, it's a once a week treat that I have been working it into my daily calories on the day I have it, so it has not affected my weight loss.  It counts as two snacks for the day as it's 230 calories per serve.

Fortunately this is only a seasonal drink, it is around only for the Christmas season.  This beverage will cease to exist on the 6th January, so from then I will not be able to have it any more....  thank goodness!  Well, until next year that is.  We go away on the 31st December, so really I only have another three days to indulge in another one before they finish.

What is this naughty consumption that I'm talking about you may ask?

Well it is none other than the Gingerbread Frappuccino from Starbucks.  I get it made on skim milk to reduce some of the calories.  But yes I do still have the cream on top, but I don't drink much of the cream.

Here it is....

Starbucks Gingerbread Frappuccino


  1. Hey Monnie, all I'm going to say is thank goodness we don't have Starbucks anywhere near where I live. I would be a gonna for sure. Drools!

    I've nominated your blog for a blog award. Here's all about it here.

    Happy new year to you.


  2. Hi, I have just found your blog after googling for more info for 12wbt. I am going to start next round. I have read back through your blog a few months and enjoyed reading what you have had to write about it. My starting weight is similar to yours.
    Happy new year!

    1. Congratulations Jacqueline on finding. 12wbt! It is a fantastic program, I honestly can't think of one bad thing to say about it. Do you have a blog? I'd love to follow your journey.

  3. Thank You so much Carol! That is SO exciting! I will do the blog post when I get home. I'm away at the moment and trying to blog on my iPad and its a nightmare! It's not like on the computer and there is a blogger app, which I have, but it doesn't work like the computer, you can basically type and add a picture as you type. No going back and adding photos, they only add to the bottom if you don't add them as you type. Anyway, thank you again! That is so sweet of you.
