Live Below the Line: Wrap-up of Almost Five Days on $1.50 of Food per Day
I am traveling this week, so I decided to do the challenge early, from April 23 - 27. As I wrote in my first post about the challenge, I was very worried about how eating so little would affect my depression and anxiety.
Here's a breakdown of how I did:
- Day 1: It was extremely hard, but I stuck to the guidelines.
- Day 2: I purposely cheated by having a cup of black tea with milk and sugar that I hadn't paid for out of my $7.50 budget
- Day 3: I ate two tiny chocolate chip banana muffins I had baked at home but again hadn't paid for within the budget
- Day 4: I successfully avoided the temptation of pizza and cupcakes at a birthday party, but caved at dinner time eating some of my daughter's hamburger and fries
