Meals for 10/1/09

Wow!! October is here!! I can't believe how fast this year has gone...alot of changes and adjustments moving across the country...colors of the trees are changing and the air is crisp and cold...and I am loving it!! I can't wait until the colors are at their prettiest and then look out camera! As of the 4th of this month it will have been 6 months since I saw my family! It doesn't seem like that long...and I will see them in a few short months for is weird how you don't know how close you are to your family until you live 3,000 miles away! The good thing is I can call and talk to them whenever I want at no cost (Comcast bundle has free long distance) so I talk to my Mom every day and my sister usually 3 or 4 times a week.

Once again I got my butt out of bed this morning and headed down to the exercise room...watched Dr. Oz while I exercised. I did 30 minutes on the treadmill at 1.5 incline and 2.5 mph and then 2 minutes on the elliptical...I know that doesn't sound like alot...but the elliptical is HARD! I have to work my way up on that one...I have very weak legs and that is a leg and heart workout! Then I came back upstairs and had some breakfast and I am chillin and drinking lots of water! Here is what I had for breakfast:

Small Banana = 1.5 points
Craisins = 2 points
Total points for Breakfast = 3.5

I wanted to do something a little different for breakfast. I am not a cranberry fan...but I have had craisins in salads before so I thought I would try just eating them...and they aren't that bad..they are tart...which I am more of a sweets person and not so much for the tart kinds of candies...but I can handle these...and the nice thing is I can sit and eat about 3 or 4 and then wait about 5 minutes and much on another 4 or they last through the morning...and keep my mouth happy! LOL

Check back for lunch...I think I might have my Chicken BBQ Ranch Wrap...I just love those tortillas! I used them last night with dinner instead of the flour tortilla's and I loved it:) Catch you all later friends:)

Hello everyone! We have a little sunshine coming through the clouds..which makes these dreary cloudy days a little more tolerable. After spending the morning doing some things around the house and taking Riley outside to do some business...BRRRR! This time I wore my long pants (capree's are going in the summer drawer) and my heavy Disneyland coat...and it was better...:) I had a nice little surprise coming back in...the apartment complex does a fall setting with haystacks, corn stalks, pumpkins and I had to go down and take some can check that out on my other blog...I will post them there:)

Anyway back to what this blog is about...FOOD:) For lunch I had the BBQ Ranch Chicken Wrap, Veggie Crunchers, baby carrots and babybel cheese. Here are the pictures...

Kevin came home and he had leftover taco's and I had a Smart Ones Fettucini with broccoli...I love this dinner!

  1. Don't feel bad about the elliptical....the most I've done on that damn torture rack is 30 seconds!! I'm sticking to the walking at the park...I'd much rather do 6 miles there than 2 seconds on the elliptical, lol. Food pics look great as always!! :)

  2. did you post the recipe for those wraps? I can't remember and they look so good!

  3. Where is this month going???? Great job witht he working out in the morning! Btw, i have a new site incase I forgot to tell you...
