enjoying a leisurely breakfast after a run but...

... i gotta say it. c (the nutritionist), if you are reading this, here's what i'm thinking right now:

this bowl of oatmeal and lg. cup of coffee is going to make me weigh too much at our appt. this morning

amy's steel cut oats bowl (too sweet and at $1.50 each i can learn to make my own) with raisins and crumbled walnuts on top
** 2 starch, 1 fruit, 1 protein, 1 other **

and a close-up:

it's a thought i've had many a time before, and one that is certainly shared amongst those with disorders. we all fear our weigh-ins. i used to intentionally skip meals before doctors' appointments to be that 1 lb. lighter. thankfully right now i only have the thoughts (i ate breakfast anyway, and i'm sipping a second pour of coffee right now), and i am only weighed at my nutritionist's, and not at the doc's as well.

anyway, moving on. almost forgot - i ate this before i left for my run:

kashi honey almond flax bar
** 1 starch, 1 other **

and here's my lunch/snacks. i am running out of containers because so many of them are in the fridge/freezer/dishwasher.

clockwise from top-left:
morning snack - 1/2 cup cottage cheese, blueberries, and about a T of flax meal (hope i like it!)
lunch - leftovers! caramelized ginger shrimp, rice, and extra asparagus (because i could have eaten more of it last night but had already put the leftovers away)
afternoon snack: pb pretzels and a prune "snack pack" (these things are good - 3 prunes in each and they stay fresh a long time since they are individually sealed)
** 1 dairy, 1/2 fruit, 1 other ** / 2 starch, 2 veg, 3 protein, 2 other / 1 starch, 1 protein, .5 fruit **
