music: polyphonic spree

so it's been almost a month of solid lunch bento-ing, thanks to my trusty rusty Mr. Bento, and i'm down 6 lbs. which would probably have been more, had (a) my CSA not screwed up and canceled deliveries for the past three weeks, and (b) i eaten a little healthier on the weekends. but the CSA is supposed to be back on track starting with weekly deliveries tomorrow, and i've been reasonably good about scavenging up enough veggies/fruits to fill three of the four Mr. Bento containers daily (with the remainder being protein/whole grains). about 75% of my lunches are entirely vegetarian if not vegan these days. woot! dinners are more variable, depending on how starving i am and what's available to heat up at home, but the proportion of veg to meat and starch has improved on the whole.

and i'm noticing my skin has cleared up substantially with the influx of fruit/veg. i guess the LUSH Times was right!

so i'm still on track, if a little behind, on my lose-fifteen-pounds-by-May-1 goal. what with the state of the election, Mike Huckabee isn't proving a sufficient deterrent so i am needing to invoke McCain and the self-imposed $10/lb penalty if i don't make the May 1 deadline. i might even go to the gym if it gets bad enough. *gasp* belly dance has been cut down to 1 hour/week and that's just not cutting it. but i'm heartened to see that a difference can be made just in terms of changing the way i eat... 6 lbs in a month is nothing to sneeze at.

community supported agriculture, or my shorthand for the big ol' box of locally grown organic veggies and fruits i have delivered once a week. :)

bento is japanese box lunches... usually divided into small (cute) containers and often whimsically designed or decorated, i.e. turning eggs into little chick heads with currant eyes and a carrot beak. some of it is hella silly. i use it for portion control and to make sure i have an attractively presented lunch that consists of lots of little portions of different foods, rather than one giant container of one type of food.
