new day

thank you susie & hopeagain for giving me words of encouragement last night. i made it through the fight. i'm suspecting that my cycle/hormones have something to do with the crying/hunger/introspectiveness, as i'm due to start my period at any moment.

i woke up hungry this morning, go figure. by 7 i had to get up and make breakfast. i did not let the ed voice rule, and went straight to the kitchen to prepare breakfast. i was craving stove-top oat bran (always a good choice), and i'm currently enjoying:

  • 1/2 cup oat bran,
  • 1/2 cup water, 1/2 cup vanilla soymilk
  • pinch salt
  • small banana, cut up into thin slices
after cooking:
  • pinch brown sugar
  • rounded tsp ground flax
  • 1/2 coconut larabar, crumbled
  • 1 T almond butter

one serious bowl - ** 2.5 starch, .5 dairy, 1 fruit, 1 protein, 2 other**

i didn't know that i liked larabars. i've had them once before and found them too compact for a stand-alone food, but crumbled atop oatmeal it's just like cookie bits. apparently "everyone is doing it" so i had to try, too.

sometimes it scares me that i often eat 1/4 of my daily "energy" for breakfast. it is so common for people at work to talk about how they didn't have time for breakfast, and i'm thinking... and i've already had... ? occasionally there are free breakfast foods at work, and people grab (and talk about) the food as if morning eats are an rare occurence. me on the other hand, can't eat the breakfast foods at work, because i'm too full from my own, which i eat every day! we are having a company breakfast next wednesday, and so i will have to remind myself not to eat beforehand!

today's plan: take it easy. i want to get some crocheting done, along with laundry and other fun household chores. it is really gloomy out, so a lazy day will feel nice, i think.
