Tag Archives: my food

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
