SCBR Week 11/ Day 3 Food/Exercise Journal

7:30 am – Coffee + AB Toast – First Signs of Feeling Full (6)


This morning I brewed some Fresh Market Spring Blend coffee for my morning cuppa.


We had a few slices of Dakota bread leftover from last week, so I tried to use them up today before they went bad in a sandwich for later and a piece of toast with Barney Butter.

11:30 am – String Cheese – Content (5)


I had a few meetings this afternoon, so I grabbed a string cheese to snack on before they got started.

1:30 pm – Toasted Sandwich + Pear – First Signs of Feeling Full (6)


Today’s sandwich was a repeat of yesterday – Dakota bread, muenster cheese, turkey, green pepper – heated for 20 seconds in the microwave, then toasted in the toaster oven.


I also had a pear.

5:00 pm – Clif ZBar – Content (5)


I had a big workout planned for after work – a special Cinco de Mayo zumba party! I decided to have a pre-workout snack before getting off the clock and changing for zumba – Clif Zbar in Chocolate Chip.

6:00 pm – NO Zumba! Rained Out! – Frustrated


I had been looking forward to tonight’s Cinco de Mayo zumba for weeks…seriously! I planned my whole day around it today! I was so excited! However, when I left work, the rain was coming down so hard, I could barely see the car in front of me…and we were going about 10 MPH! Then, it started hailing. Then, I almost got stuck in 2 sections of the road where it was completely flooded and the water level was above my tires! I was determined to get to zumba, so I still headed over, but I came to a hard-stop when the cars on the road I was taking to zumba stopped and started turning around. The road was flooded out! I turned around to see if I could get around it and the other road I wanted to try was flooded too! I took it as a sign that I needed to go home.


Check out how flooded this creek is! The water was moving so fast!

I headed home and pouted around for awhile…I was really upset I didn’t get to do my zumba class – so upset I wanted to cry! I know…dramatic, but I’ve been really motivated to work out and you know how sad it is to miss something you’re looking forward to when it’s completely out of your control, no? I also felt really bad for the instructor because I know she put a lot of work into her event planning door prizes and Gatoritas…I hope she does it again next year so I can go!

9:00 pm – Sushi – Full (7)


Although most people probably had Mexican tonight to celebrate Cinco de Mayo, we ended up getting sushi.


I had a Saketini – sake + pomegranate juice.


I had some miso soup…


…and a salad with ginger dressing.


Hubby got some spicy tiger shrimp app that looked more like an entree to me. The shrimp were amazing! So spicy and tasty with a drizzle of fresh lime juice. I think I liked his shrimp better than my sushi.


For sushi, we ordered a Crunchy Mui Bueno (shrimp tempura, cucumber, avocado, crunchies, spicy mayo) and a tempura asparagus roll.

Although I was craving some salty tortilla chips, the sushi was fab and I thoroughly enjoyed my dinner.

What did you eat for Cinco de Mayo?

  1. I'm sorry your zumba class was rained out! It might be a good idea to get some DVD workout videos (yoga, etc.) to have on hand in case your workout plans get foiled again!

    I love Ru Sans! I used to go there a lot when I lived in Atlanta. I also did not eat along with the Cinco de Mayo theme; I had pasta and cauliflower for dinner!

  2. Hi!! Your sushi diner looks delish! Sorry your zumba party got rained out! I celebrated cinco de mayo with quesadillas and ritas (margaritas)
    Oh! I forgot to introduce myself! I'm Yussy, I'm from boston and I looooove your blog! =)

  3. Your dinner looks delicious-we ordered Chinese! I had shrimp and broccoli and hubby had General Tso's.

    And what a crazy rain you had–it was raining here, but not flooding the roads, the southern part of our county had tornadoes. More rain for us the next couple of days, I think.
