Week 1 Bento Challenge, COMPLETE!!!

Okay, so I'm doing the Bento Challenge from justbento.com, and here are my results:

Made one bento (meant to make more, stuff kept coming up. Will be making a stock of pre-made bento stuff so I can have one every day.

I am counting calories, so I got a small bento set for snacks as well that has the ml right on it! yay! No trying to measure ml in cups!

I did exercise more than usual this week on purpose, but was out for two days due to trying to walk a considerrable distance doing lunge-speed-walking. I got a little too enthusiastic, and apparently I'm not ready for that. Since Caleb passed away, I haven't exercised at al, save for leisurely walks through the neighborhood.

I *WILL* be using he bento planner to make things easier. I will also attempt to start making the man-snack some bentos when he goes back to school. If he doesn't piss me off again by then.

Pic 1 is my knock-off Strawberry Shortcake kid's backpack I got for $2 at a local Chinese buffet. Holds all my bento stuff perfectly!

Pic 2 is the whole layout for the day, including snacks

Pic 3: Hello Kitty Bento with kitty-shaped toast (details in sharp mustard), tofu cutlets (SO yummy), little jar from the beauty supply with sesame ooil for the tofu, grape tomato fillers, and Melon Bread Pretz.

Pic 4: Veggie bento with carrot disks, grape tomatoes, and cucumber

Pic 5: Fruit/snack bento with Nectarines, frozen blueberries, and grape tomato fillers (I've been having tomato withdrawal lately).

Pic 6: Hello Kitty Thermos w/cup... inside is some REALLY NUMMY hot Chinese weight-loss tea.


How adorable! I love the kitty mustard details; those are super cute. Great job and keep up the hard work! :D
Looks delicious! :) Good job.
Ooo looks great! Keep posting your lunches!
Wow, people actually like me here? YAY! I'll post more as I make more, and I'll post recipies or links to them too!
Delicious and adorable.
I like your bento! So cute!
Just out of curiosity, what type of job do you have? I noticed that you don't have a lot of higher calorie food in your bento, so I wondered if you had a desk job. :3
