SCBR Week 10/ Day 3 Food/Exercise Journal

It’s almost midnight and I’ve spent most of the night finalizing details on my craft show, Pink at the Plaza (for the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer). The event is this Saturday and I’m feeling pressed for time, so I can only hope that I’ve done enough. Phew! Craft show planning is hard work! Good thing I have an awesome counterpart (the ops manager at the Walk) to help! Since it’s so late, I’m going to try to keep this short.

7:30 am – Coffee – Content (5)


This morning I had some Bolivian coffee from TJ’s with soy creamer and sugar…so simple, but so good.

10:00 am – SBucks and Oatmeal – Content (5)


I was needing some extra caffeine today, so I had my Monday Starbucks Day starbucks on Tuesday. Close enough, right? I had the usual: Grande Vanilla Soy Latte.


I knew we were getting a fresh delivery of produce this morning so I didn’t get many oatmeal mixins this weekend. Thusly, breakfast was a simple maple syrup and brown sugar blend with flaxseed and sliced almonds. I made this from scratch, not from the pouch, though.

11:30 am – Chicken Noodle Soup – Content (5)


I knew Just Fresh had lentil soup so I was excited to get some 1. to fulfill one of my nut, seed, bean portions of the day and 2. to help me stay warm in the frigid office. I learned today, however, that they’ve discontinued the soup! Waaaah! So, I got chicken noodle instead. It was pretty good. I tore the roll into bite sized pieces to dip into the soup broth.

2:00 pm – Clif Energy Bar in Carrot Cake – Content (5)


Since we didn’t have bread this morning, I couldn’t bring a sandwich. Since we didn’t have produce, I couldn’t bring a salad either. So, I tried to do the best I could with what I had without having to buy too much new food.


I had this Clif Energy bar in Carrot Cake as one of my snacks. I was glad to eat something full of vitamins since I didn’t have any fruits or veggies to eat to get them. The bar was pretty good…nice texture and decent flavor. I’m so-so on the white chocolate pieces. Not sure it needed that extra sweetness.

3:00 pm – Babybel and Kashi Crackers – Content (5)


I had some babybel cheese in cheddar later in the day…


…along with some Kashi crackers in Original 7 Grain.

4:30 pm – Yogurt Parfait – Content (5)


I had a yogurt parfait late in the day – Wallaby organic yogurt in Banana Vanilla with some Fresh Market Cherry Vanilla granola. I was glad to eat the yogurt today b/c today was its expiration! I don’t like to mess with yogurt and expirations.

6:00 pm – Zumba! – Happy

I was feeling really blah at work today. I was still feeling unmotivated after work. I almost didn’t go to Zumba. I didn’t really feel like it. But, I told myself, go to zumba…you’ll feel better afterwards. And, you know what? I went…and I did feel better afterwards! I felt like a million bucks and I’m so happy I went!

8:30 pm – Pizza and a Movie – First Signs of Feeling Full (6)


Hubby suggested pizza for dinner, while I suggested fresh pasta-dinner. Hubby won and we’ll have pasta tomorrow. Since I didn’t have any fruits or veggies all day, I was really looking forward to digging into our produce delivery.


I made a gigantic salad for hubby and myself with our organic produce delivery items: grape tomatoes, baby spinach, and local romaine lettuce. I also added a wee bit of fresh basil, parmesan cheese, and my fave dressing: Drew’s Rosemary Balsamic.


I started with a slice of pepperoni for dinner.


Hubby enjoyed his pizza, as always.


I had a second slice of pizza – cheese this time. Then a third piece, which I ate about 2/3 of saving a mini-slice for hubby. Hubby got the smaller than normal pizza so we ended up eating more slices. I was just glad to have that big salad to start the meal…so good to finally get some veggies for the day!

What’s your favorite kind of pizza?

  1. Good luck getting all prepared for the craft show. I have friends that make homemade soap and get up at shows about every weekend starting in April thru December. I personally think they are crazy(it's a lot of work!!) but they love it!!

    I love the satisfaction I feel when I'm done exercising. Specially if I didn't feel like doing it in the first place!!

    Have a good one!!
