Happy Fall!  It is officially here!  The weather here sure did cooperate too.  Mid to upper 50’s and drizzle.  I still love it!  One of those sleepy days apparently because my daughter and I both woke up pretty late today.

I started the day off with the last of my prepared steel-cut oats.  I kept it simple and topped it off with banana, strawberries, and pecans.  You can never go wrong with that combo!

I did my circuit workout.  I made my own up today.  They were full of Gabby Reece moves.  I did 12 exercises at 1 minute each for three rounds.  I am still feeling very weak.  I’ll give the new medication one more month to kick in and then I am done with it!

Lunch was light.  I had a giant apple sliced up and a salad that I have not made in a while.

It’s super simple (not very fall like) but light, and deliciously clean tasting!  I made it up one day and I do love it.  My husband will even eat it!

Into a medium mixing bowl:

  • 1 can of Garbanzo beans rinsed and drained
  • 1 bell pepper diced
  • Onion (1/4 cup or to taste) diced (I like red and green, whatever you have works)
  • 1 can of drained (water) chunk light tuna
  • Half of a lemon juiced
  • 1 TBS olive oil

Mix all together and enjoy!  It’s great by itself or served on a bed of mixed greens.  A mix of spinach and iceberg gives it a great crunch and good color, not to mention all the other health benefits.

For my snack today I had some greek yogurt with honey, unsalted peanuts, dried blueberries, and dried cranberries.


Dinner was out tonight!  We met my husband at the mall near his work.  We went to a coney there.  I had an awesome dinner!  Maybe I was just super hungry, but the meal hit the spot!  I loved it!  I had a baby greek salad with grilled chicken on top, a bowl of lemon rice soup, and warm pita bread!

I don’t have a picture which is a shame.  I did not plan on going out to dinner since my daughter and I got to the mall at 3:00 pm!  We were there until 7:00 pm!  We had a good time!  It was a good way to spend a drizzly fall day and evening!

I hope you had a great fall day and evening too!

Talk soon!
