After yesterday's grumps, Day 3 saw me feeling slightly more chirpy. A little hungry, but chirpy!
This evening, we had our small group meeting from church, and as we eat together each week, we cooked a meal for 33p a head - we did bean chilli, rice, and pancakes again for pudding. There was even enough left for some cups of tea. Our group found it rather amusing the degree to which we went to work out the costs!
The headache is coming and going - I guess it's mostly the lack of caffeine (one mug a day) but also maybe the general lack of food, and change in food?
I've discovered hot water is much more pallatable than I thought, and part of having a coffee is eveidentally the comfort of a hot drink! I'm drinking lots and lots of water, and discovering that the reason I seem to have a 'bladder of steel' is because I never drink any water. Not so steely-bladdered this week.
Of all the ruminating thoughts inspired by this week, I think the 'take-home' message from this week will be WASTE. I have never been so sure to make sure everything gets eaten; normally I am so flippant with what I have. A quick look at these food waste facts on the feeding the 5k website makes me sick with guilt!
Nice to be over the half-way mark! Remember - if you'd like to sponsor me, you can do so at www.livebelowtheline.com/me/alisonely
