I guess I'm just afraid that this means that I am seeing things wrong. In the mirror, I see a thin girl, but maybe I'm not as thin as I think I am... maybe I'm actually huge, maybe I've gained ten pounds and there's no way of me knowing! Ahhh stupid Ed.

Okay, I'm going to do it - I also just remembered that I'll be boarding a plane to NYC on Friday, and for a week and a half I will not be able to really count or measure, so this one-day challenge is going to turn into a week and a half challenge for me! A whole WEEK AND A HALF of not measuring and counting... I'm hoping when I come home, I won't have to count and measure anymore! Eep! COME ON WE CAN DO IT!

Just got home from a week-long camp-type thing with my family. We go every year but I missed out on last year because of my ED, so this was a huge challenge for me! Thankfully the kitchen staff were extremely considerate and made me vegan meals and desserts. I had such a great time and even though ED was screaming the first couple of days, I mellowed out and became more okay with it all as the week progressed.

Pre-B: Cream Earl Grey tea with Splenda (bought this tea at a coffee/tea shop that also sells antiques... it's deelish!)

B: a cup of Raisin Bran cereal with granola mixed in, a peanut butter and strawberry jam sandwich and a glass of orange juice

S: Diet cream soda

L: Peanut butter sandwich on a whole wheat bagel, grilled veggies, salad (lettuce, cucumber, shredded carrots, raisins)

S: An apple

D: Salad (from Harvey's - lettuce, tomato, shredded carrots, cucumber), pickles and a monstrous peach

Exercise: 20 min. kayaking, 1 hr. cave exploring (yes, cave exploring!)
