First day of living below the line.

I decided not to change my daily activities too much with this challenge. The people around the world who have to live on $1.50 a day of food probably don’t have a desk job like me. So I still went to the gym this morning and did a hour of weights and 25 minutes of stationary bike. I weighed in at 193lbs on the first day of this project. My decision to go to the gym this morning was to satisfied my ego ( I don’t want to shrink to much) and equaled the playing field a little with the people who have to do physical work to earn that $1.50.

My choice of food for the next 5 days are rice, beans and eggs which cost a total of $7.20 at Publix.

I started cooking and decide not to use any salt or seasonings because it did not fit into my budget, big mistake everything tastes so plain. I will try to post major changes and my progress here but most of my updates will be on twitter.com/curtismatthews

back in the gym

I have gone to the gym at least four days this week. I am back on track with my training. The last couple of months with the holidays and activities going on I did not make time for my training.
My workouts were sporadic and not intense enough for me to achieve my goals. So this is the week I started back on track with my training and I will keep a record of my progress on this Blog.
I just downloaded an application to make the posting a lot easier for me to do from my Blackberry. http://www.mobilewiseguy.com/wordpress-application-for-blackberry/
