Breakfast: Porridge (I cheated, I stole a bit of my honey, just a tiny bit)
Lunch: Pasta with mixed vegetables
Tea: Banana and three digestives
Dinner: More digestives
Day 1 started out alright and I felt pretty satisfied with my meals. There were moments where I had to turn away from ice cream and a cup of tea today. That was hard but I am proud I resisted. Living within such a tight budget definitely ain’t easy but manageable. It just requires a little bit more planning (of meals) and discipline. First day made me reflect on how it felt living within a small budget and walking away from things I normally would not even hesitate buying.
As tomorrow is the final exam day, we are all going out for dinner and drinks after. I am not too sure how that is going to work but I have prepared my meals in advance. I think I did a pretty good job with Day 2 lunch and dinner.
Baked potatoes and carrots with cayenne pepper, salt and pepper. Accompanied with boiled brocolli.
