Bento Challenge

3 Apr

Hi all,

I’ve decided to participate in the 30-Day Bento Challenge hosted by Not Exactly Bento.  I’ve been pretty good at cutting fast food like McDonalds out of my regular diet, stopped drinking soda and sugary drinks, and I try to eat more fruits and veggies. Been going great so far! I used to count calories but I don’t have time anymore due to school. Unfortunately, I quit one of my jobs so I will be packing much fewer bentos.

Here are my goals for the month of April:
1. Pack cuter bento boxes rather than my laptop lunch box so I eat smaller portions and so I can practice making pretty bentos.
2. Make a small bento freezer stash (small because there’s not much space in my family’s freezer).
3. Try more bento recipes.
4. Continue to not buy unhealthy snacks because I won’t eat it if I don’t have it laying around! I’m also trying to clear out the junk food stash.
Edited to add:
5. Not eat after 9PM UNLESS it’s Monday or Wednesday because my classes end ~9pm and I don’t always get to eat before class or in class.

I know April is going to be a super busy month with final projects due so this will definitely be a challenge. I included four different goals so I can work on at least one of them daily since I won’t be packing a daily bento. I purposely didn’t put exercise more because I really don’t know if I will be able to do so at the moment. That’s always been my biggest challenge and I’m still lacking the push to accomplish it. Updates will be posted on this blog as well as on the challenge page. I’m hoping to win the laptop lunch box prize (winner randomly chosen). Wish me luck!
