I was just planning on oats...

...but, of course, if you know me, you know I didn't stop there.
I bought a 14 ounce bag of apple chips on Saturday, and they are gone (yesterday) and i started a new one today.
I had blueberries, watermelon, an omellete and almonds. and cashews. and a banana.
and cheerios.
And the thing is, it's hard with things like cereal and nuts, because it's hard to say how much i had.
because it's not like 'a small bag of chips.'
no, i purchase my food in bulk because i like the sense of abundance the large quantities lend.
plus, when you have lots of little food, you can't tell how much you're eating.

You don't get full on healthy food.
you do. i can testify to that!
and the fullness is often to the point of discomfort!
the thing is, even though they are good for you, it is in moderation.
so, this is what i must work on. think about it, even if you were to eat 18 pounds of lettuce, that's bad!!

I took photos to show you!
got one of those huge boxes of cheerios from costco on Saturday. Done with one bag...

my dolphin jar that used to be full of my favorite raw cashewsa ziplock bag that is hiding from me because it knows i have the scary potential to take away the existence of its contents.

Yes, I do have tupperware containers full of food in every nook and cranny of my room.
See, there? That is a bag of sweet potato twigs and the white containers has my dried apricots and pretzels.

May gross you out? But when I vacuum, I always here the clinkity clink of the vacuum sucking up cheerios, dried fruit, pistachio shells and dried out raisins.
once, i found raisin bran in between my sheets.
It's not that gross. You all eat in bed, don't even lie!

Also, I was taking a shower this morning, and as I took of my nightgown, 3 cheerios fell out!!
I don't know where they were the wrinkles?

But really. this is a problem, and I need to redress it.
and i will.

i borrowed this book from the library. needless to say, i'm really excited!
my friends are probably scared about what may ensue upon my true excitement!!
don't worry, guys, there are DELICIOUS WAYS TO EAT THESE! (aka every and any.single.way.ever!)

I woke up early to go on a run before work, but the apple chips distracted me.
I will go after work!

Excited for the pot luck tomorrow!
