The heat wave is going away - yeah!

Happy Monday all! Our little heat wave is finally breaking today and we are going back into the 80's. Yahoo! I love sunshine and warm weather, just not blazing hot heat. Today is day 29 of the Biggest Loser 30 day Jump Start - yeah! With 2 days left, I decided to hold off on my official final Weigh In until Wednesday.

This morning I started off with an awesome bowl of Steel Cut Oats (5 WWP) ~ I've missed oats so much!


1/3 c steel cut oats
1 1/3 c water
dash of cinnamon
2 Tbsp TJ's Berry Blend
1/2 banana
1 Tbsp Walnuts

Plus 2 slices of TJ's 97% fat free turkey bacon (1 WWP):


And to start off properly hydrated :D I had 2 glasses of iced decaf coffee using 8 oz of fat free milk (2 WWP).


My breakfast was sooooo filling! I really want my AM snack but we will see if I get hungry by then.

Confession time ~ Last night, yup, the ice cream called my name and I listened. It was so refreshing after a hot day and I enjoyed it as I started on my next book. I had layed out a few books on the couch and told The Husband to pick which one he thought I should start next.

Can you guess which one he picked?


The Importance of Being Married ~ Ha!!! He said since we are still in our first year, I should read up ~ such a funny boy! LOL.

That's I have for now ~ See you all later for some more fun eats after my lunchtime walk.


  1. YUM! Gotta love those oats! And now that the weather cooled down a bit, you can fully enjoy them. So cute about the hubby... you can tell he cares. :)

  2. What's TJ's Berry Blend? I'm intrigued... haha

  3. The oats look so good! Enjoy the weather, we have an odd fall weather here.

  4. ah oats - you are a girl after my own heart :)!! Hope some of that heat is moving up my way.. it hit a low of 40 here today, ack!

  5. Your heat wave is over. Lucky girl! We're still in the 90's today -- too hot for a walk.

    Your books look so good! I wouldn't know which one to pick, either.

  6. Breakfast looks so good!

    Are you going to have a review on the Biggest Loser jump-start? Bc that would be awesome!

  7. Heather ~ I LOVE Steel Cut and Old Fashioned Oats the best!

    Jess ~ It's an awesome mix of dried cherries, blueberries, cranberries and golden raisins. The nutritionals are really good compared to most dried fruit and the sugar isn't as high. I use it almost any time a recipe calls for raisins because it is definitely more fun (yes, that is good english!) LOL

    Priyanka ~ I LOVE fall weather - not too hot, not too cold.

    Jenny ~ That is freezing! I will definitely do a sunshine dance to send some sun your way - really! ha!

    Kirwin ~ My lunchtime walk wasn't too bad - still pretty warm but there was a nice breeze.

    Striving for Balance ~ Absolutely. I plan on doing a full review of the book from the food to the workouts to the mental aspect. I am hoping to post it when the challenge is over but if I don't finish it by Tuesday, then, I will for sure this weekend.

  8. LOVELY Breakfast! And that book Fat Chance looks good....then again I may just be inticed by the CupCake on the cover?! haha

  9. Nutritious ~ Thanks! I think that is exactly why I bought it - I LOVE Cupcakes too! Oh ya and the story on the back cover sounded good too :)

  10. I love your choice in books! Moose was awesome!

  11. C.G. ~ I LOVE Chic lit and weight loss stories and well, I guess just about any good book that isn't sci-fi. I heard so many great things about Moose I had to pick it up. I will definitely move that one up the list to next :)
