It's the lethargy that gets you
I felt like day 1 was going pretty well.
Oats and water for breakfast. Half a banana.
Some ramen for lunch, with half a tin of beans added in.
Pasta with tinned / diced tomatoes for dinner. One fried egg.
Lots of water throughout the day.
Not the most nutritious set of meals in the world, but I was rarely actually hungry.
Then at 8.30pm I just hit the wall. I was exhausted. I fell asleep on the couch, and only barely could make it to bed an hour or so later. I slept through until 6.30am (10 hours sleep!), and even now as I write this several hours later I feel groggy and like I just woke up.
I just went back and calculated my nutrition / calories for yesterday. Turns out it was close to a 1000 calorie deficit, and most of those calories were carbs.
Even after years of doing this challenge, it's still a pretty brutal reminder of how much basic nutrition is a privilege I take for granted.
10 years on, I'm living on $2 a day for all food and drink
10 years after Rich and I first came up with Live Below the Line, and 9 years since we ran the first campaign, it's time to do it again.
