Alice Wyche, Day 1

The most difficult part of today was not having tea or coffee. I usually have a few cups of tea throughout the day… such a basic and seemingly inexpensive item. When it came down to it, food was a higher priority than beverages. After a few cups of hot water today, I started putting a little cinnamon in it.

I also noticed that most of my thoughts revolved around food, which isn’t normal for me. I had anxiety about possibly going hungry by the end of the week as well as having to eat the same meals over and over again.


What I ate today…
Breakfast – egg and two pieces of toast
Lunch – spaghetti and tomato sauce
Snack – brown rice and dhal
Dinner – dhal and brown rice
