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!
