Happy morning

Charlottesville is going on week II of cloudy, gloomy days. Where is the bright fall I love!? September is either all sunshine or all clouds. Year to year, you never know which one. It usually swaps with October, so here’s to a gorgeous Oct!

Breakfast of champions!

Coach’s oats, banana, chia seeds, milk, water, cinnamon, Cville Cluster, Barney Butter

Now that we’re settled a bit more, I’m hoping to crank out some more feature posts I’ve been meaning to write for ages. This week’s smartphone postings made me realize ‘tis better to produce content than not, so I’m hoping to just throw them out there inbetween regularly scheduled posts. Look for that wedding one to pop up soon!

It’s okay, that just means your birthday will be sunny! I really like that bowl.

Allie- I just commented below, but I bought the exact same bowl at Marshall’s the other day. I think I got it for $2!

Breakfasts like that make me want the weather to change from sunny to freezing!

It’s funny you said that about Setp/Oct b/c I just checked the forecast and from Oct 1 on, it’s pure sun + 60’s. I can handle a few more clouds if that’s what’s coming!

oooooh oats! I am so excited to get my hands on some too :) I do like October, but I am SO sad SUmmer is over. Boo.

I can’t believe October is nearly here! I’m sad that Sept is nearly over though… autumn is the best!

This morning was the first time I really felt like the season had changed!

I just picked up a huge bag of Coach’s Oats at Costco over the weekend, for something different. I haven’t tried them yet, but got them on your recommendation. :)

I happen to enjoy both the cloudy days, and the sunny days of fall. The temps have not cooled off near enough here in Clt, so the clouds help. (a bit). Crisp sunny days MUST be just around the corner though!

Very cool, I’m looking forward to some of these featured posts. I love the simplicity and beautiful posts you always put up but throwing in something different once in a while keeps things interesting and fun too! Have a great day!

I know, Mother Nature is totally screwing up this whole Fall thing! Though today is a bit better here…but they ARE saying rain the rest of the week which stinks.

That breakfast looks awesome. I’ve officially finished my Cville Cluster and am now on to Groovy Granola. I LOVE it – though nothing beats Cville Cluster in my book!!

Same deal with the weather here in MD. It’s been gloomy and sad for almost two weeks now! C’mon, sunshine!

I’m still getting over how amazing you were with the smartphone blogging! The one time I blogged via iPhone, the picture uploading was going to take forever (blogging thru the wordpress platform directly from the WP site) via my iphone.

If there is some big trick or other platform I am missing, lmk! Did you just login to WP and blog?

Reply

17 KathEats September 26, 2011 at 8:17 am

Ahhh you need the APP!!!!!!!

Reply

18 Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga September 26, 2011 at 8:36 am

which one? like a wordpress blogging app?

i wonder if it’s universal…and I could use it on an iphone too? (because I know have a different kind of smartphone)

Reply

19 KathEats September 26, 2011 at 8:45 am

Yup just search for Wordpress app

Averie I use Blogpress for the iPhone and it allows you to type between pix. It’s great!

So you like it Lynn? Maybe I should try that!

Hmmm..don’t think they have it for Android.

23 Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga September 26, 2011 at 2:46 pm

Thanks, Lynn!

I will be downloading Blogpress for iPhone as soon as I get done typing this. Glad to hear you’ve used it and like it.

Thank you! :)

26 Deva @ Deva by Definition September 26, 2011 at 8:27 am

Your breakfast looks delish! I am actually enjoying this September – it seems like it rained a TON in April and May, and then nothing until now. I’ll probably be singing a different tune come this weekend, but I don’t mind cloudy, rainy, fall days :-)

Reply

27 Dee September 26, 2011 at 8:27 am

Ooh, cute bowl and mug! And I totally agree with you. October is WAY better than September. :)

Reply

28 Anna @ On Anna's Plate September 26, 2011 at 8:28 am

I agree– October is much better than September!! It’s when fall always seems to REALLY kick in, whereas September is just the remains of summer. I’m ready for the chill of fall!

Reply

29 Jen September 26, 2011 at 8:35 am

I think producing content is a great focus. Even over ‘regularly scheduled posts’ because otherwise your just doubling the content and time into it! Do what you feel you want to do and not what you feel obligated to do. Within reason of course :)

30 Hope @ With A Side Of Hope September 26, 2011 at 8:36 am

I’m looking forward to the upcoming posts! I really want the fall weather to arrive already! I can’t wait for the leaves to start changing too. Hurry up fall! I’m over this humidity! :)

31 Christy September 26, 2011 at 8:37 am

Here in MN they keep promising the sunny warm “Indian Summer” that never comes… :( So yes, here’s to October!

32 Ann @ Day by Day September 26, 2011 at 8:43 am

Love the post title. I completely agree. And yes, here’s to hopefully beautiful October weather. My sister went to Washington & Lee, so whenever I would visit her in the fall in your part of the country, I’d be astounded at how beautiful it was!

33 Brittany @ Itty Bits of Balance September 26, 2011 at 8:52 am

Cheers to a sunny October for you! But for us folks in Florida, I hope a chill comes sooner rather than later. You can take some of my sun!

So…I hope this isn’t annoyingly tacky, but….
I have a little low traffic blog that I play with in my spare time. I have always wanted to do a giveaway just for fun….. and, well, I decided to give it a go. It’s for free chocolate.
I was kinda sorta hoping maybe I could post a link here for people to see, and more than, say, 3 people would enter it. :-)

Fall is one of my favorite seasons and one of the biggest things I miss by living in LA. Don’t get me wrong, I love that my lunch breaks can be taken overlooking (or on) the beach, but I love the crisp fall air, pumpkin cravings and sweaters. I hope you get a nice fall to enjoy for both of us! :)

Maybe I missed it, but how do you make your Coach’s Oats? Do you follow their directions for the amount of water? I’ve made them a few times, and they’ve alternated between too runny and too clumpy…

Reply

64 KathEats September 26, 2011 at 1:10 pm

I make them the same as I do rolled oats – half milk, half water, medium heat brought to a bubbling simmer until reaches desired thickness

Hi,Im completely in love with your blog-and truely amazed at how much I have learned about food & exercise & health in general through your obviously love of the lifestyle:)
I was wondering(& understand if you perfer not to comment on certain programs) what you throught of weight watchers?
Thank you so much for this blog & be awesome!!

Reply

66 KathEats September 26, 2011 at 1:37 pm

Thanks April!

I think weight watchers is a great program for some people. Just depends if the format and support meshes with your personality. I would say, however, to stay away from their branded yogurts, bars and things. They don’t have the best ingredient lists.

Can’t friggin’ wait until October. Our early mornings have had a bit of a chill to them, but then the temps reach high 90s in the afternoon. Fall needs to quit teasing me and get on with it already! :)

Looking forward to the upcoming posts!

Blechhh this weather is the worst! We had that teaser of cool, crisp, Fall weather… and now this? No fun. I think it’s supposed to be a little better next week… at least more sun.

Got a question about your chia seeds on the oatmeal – not sure if you’ve answered this before & I don’t really know how to search to find out!
Do you cook the seeds in the oatmeal or sprinkle them on top? I always sprinkle them on my yogurt and my husband mixes them in his water with lime juice (yuk) but I’ve never tried cooking with them… I love reading your posts, you keep me inspired to eat healthy!

71 KathEats September 26, 2011 at 5:14 pm

Here in California were finally getting summer! It’s suppose to be 100 by Wednesday. We have had some weird weather, but then again so have you. I love the summer, but I’m looking forward to the fall. I love the cooler weather, and all the fall produce! Your oats look so delicious!!! I’m stealing your over night oats with pumpkin for my blog, but don’t worry I’ll give you the credit!!!

While I was in Tahoe this past weekend, my SIL whipped out a big bag of Coach’s Oats and told em how delicious they are (unfortunately, I already had breakfast when she told em)! And I just learned the product/producer/coach is very local to me. Can’t wait to give the oats a try.

It has been pretty dreary here, but at least the sun is popping out a little bit from time-to-time today!
