Experience: Definitely needed to eat more calories today and still felt hungry from yesterday, so I actually ended up eating so many carbs. It’s a shame veg is so expensive. I also made sure to eat more protein today (2 eggs). I haven’t quite finished supper and still have 12 cents left over so might treat myself to some yoghurt later 🙂 All in all it was a good day and i’m not as tired as yesterday. What i’m confused about though is how much I’m actually eating – I normally never eat so many carbs and I’m fine! I guess vegetables fill you up though…Can’t wait to tuck into some kale on Saturday 😉

Experience: Today went better than yesterday but I made another calculation mistake.. Luckily I could solve it in the end but I feel very stupid. I did eat enough today and loads more than yesterday which was good, but I did feel bit hungry. Luckily my tummy is satisfied now! My goal for tomorrow is to make NO mistakes and to keep around 47-50 cents for dinner. Lets see if I can!
