keep on truckin'

i've hit some BAD body image, but i've just got to keep on going. i just made myself a fab bowl of oat bran, and while it tastes good, i keep having unwanted-but-automatic thoughts telling myself that i shouldn't be eating this or that i should leave a third in the bowl.

:: minor freakout over this slightly-larger-than-usual bowl ::

today's mix:
  • heaping 1/3 c oat bran
  • 1/3 c vanilla soymilk, 1/3 c water
  • 1/2 large banana
after cooking:
  • 1 T flaxmeal
  • 1/2 cashew cookie larabar
  • 1 prune
  • handful pecan + cranberry mix
  • spoonful homemade pecan butter
  • maple syrup drizzle

... but you know what? i'm thinking my lunch-- packed-- is actually slightly smaller than most:

smoked turkey, hirtenkase cheese, and smidgin' o mayo...

+ arugula!

mighty, but not all that huge...

packed with a veggie bag

i packed muesli-soaked yogurt for a snack:

wallaby pear yogurt + rough 1/4 cup bob's red mill muesli + 2 prunes, snipped

just gonna keep on going...


  1. You are doing really great. I was reading over some of your very early posts and I can`t believe how much progress you`ve made over such a short period of time. I`m really impressed and inspired!
