SCBR Week 10/ Day 5 Food/Exercise Journal

7:30 am – Coffee – Content (5)


I had a cup of Fresh Market Spring Blend in one of my fave mugs – the “What would you attempt to do if you knew you could not fail mug” I featured awhile back.

I had to wake up and get ready extra early to drop my car off at the shop. My check engine light came on a couple days ago and I hear it’s not good to mess with that.

10:30 am – Strawberry/Banana Oats – First Signs of Feeling Full (6)


I did a play on yesterday’s Strawberries N Cream oats and did Strawberry Banana – one of my fave fruit combo flavors of all time! I basically did the same combo as yesterday, but with bananas, too.


All stirred up!

1:30 pm -Turkey Sandwich + Cheetos – First Signs of Feeling Full (6)


Today I brought a turkey sandwich on Great Harvest Dakota bread. The sandwich had shaved turkey breast, muenster cheese, organic baby spinach, and TJ’s Chipotle hummus, which gave the sandwich a nice, smoky, slightly-spicy flavor. I had my lunch with cheetos…so bad for you, but so good! I couldn’t help myself.


I found out today is National Oatmeal Cookie day over a phone conference and I had to run out and buy some Oatmeal Chocolate Chip cookies to share with a couple co-workers, plus one for me and one for hubby.


I had to label one for a co-worker who was on hours and hours of conference calls.

Hubby picked me up from work today and we drove about 30 minutes to the car place…I feel like I’m totally being taken advantage of there since I don’t know how to tell if the work they’re suggesting is necessary or not. The last two times I’ve been there, the work they did was well over $500 and who can afford that!? Luckily, hubby is helping me out because this car work is expensive!! When they gave me the quote this morning, I was so frustrated I thought I’d cry. I ended up sucking it up and luckily, I had already found a coupon online that saved me about $150 dollars…hey, better than full price, right?

8:30 pm – Tomato Chicken Fresh Pasta – Full (7)


I got a bag of fresh pasta a couple days ago. Apparently the stuff lasts a few days in the fridge…who knew? I got Garlic Rosemary linguine from Pasta + Provisions …love this place!


I also got some Rosemary Foccacia, which I promptly froze – this stuff reheats like a dream in the oven…just a drizzle of olive oil and pop it in the oven at roughly 350 for 10-ish minutes…done and done.


I decided for dinner to do the sauce simple since the pasta itself seemed so flavorful.


I just did some sauteed veggies in TJ’s red sauce.


The pasta came out good. It was too good…I didn’t want to stop eating it and definitely overate. I’ve been doing that a lot lately it seems…maybe you’ve noticed I’ve hit 7 (full) on the hunger scale a lot lately…I need to work on that. I was hoping to finish the last 2 weeks of SCBR strong.

Anywho, I topped the pasta with some fresh basil and parmesan cheese…mmm…


Yummy foccacia. Whoever said carbs were bad was crazy!


Hubby and I enjoyed dinner over The Millionaire Matchmaker , which I’m still watching. What? It’s a marathon!

Did any one else celebrate National Oatmeal Cookie Day today?

  1. didn't get to celebrate oatmeal cookie day – I may have to celebrate tomorrow, though! I can really see a difference with the new lens. I love the pictures 🙂

  2. Darn, I should have had an oatmeal cookie(I'll use any excuse!!).

    That pasta looks sooooo wonderful!! Glad you enjoyed it. You know the drill, just cut back a little today if you feel you ate to much yesterday. Of course that's hard to do since it's a Friday and sometimes you go out…

    Enjoy your day!!

  3. Diana,

    I KNOW you've totally recently posted this info before, and very recently, but can you sum up again what camera / lens you are using? The pics look especially stunning (and tasty) today.

  4. I'm so jealous that you take the time in the morning to cut up fresh fruit for your yummy cereal…I love that but am too lazy (and there are strawberries in the fridge too.)
    I missed Oatmeal Cookie day? I've got individual oatmeal raisin cookie dough in the freezer ready to go and I MISSED THE DAY!!! :0
    Have a great weekend. A~

  5. National Oatmeal Cookie day…how did I not know about this? I can't believe I had to work on a national holiday. That just doesn't seem right.
