So, Day 1 was:
Breakfast - 1 hard boiled egg and coffee
Lunch - 1 cup of plain white rice
Dinner - 1 cup of plain white rice
I wasn't so much hungry as my palate was bored.
I have never before longed to reach for a piece of gum or candy. And, I started to wish for a vegetable or a piece of fruit. (All of which sit in my pantry.)
Wow, I yawned a lot through the afternoon and evening - even though I wasn't really sleepy. I went to bed early and tossed and turned all night - like the night before. Yet, for the second day, awoke feeling utterly refreshed - almost energetic.
Breakfast - 1 cup of plain Cream of Wheat and small coffee
Lunch - 1 hard boiled egg
Dinner - will likely be 1/2 c. plain rice with 1/2 c. beans
Tomorrow I work both jobs.
Many of the folks at my second job are doing the "5 days on $2 or less" program, too. It will be interesting to see what we all look like at 8pm - after working 12 hours on essentially 3 cups of starch and a chicken nugget of protein.
I really thought I would be hungry.
Though, yesterday my stomach hurt a bit.
(I think it didn't like digesting rice for both lunch and dinner.)
I thought I would be sleepy from all the carbs and lack of sugar.
Actually, I'm pretty darn wide-eyed and bushy-tailed.
So far, this hasn't been too hard.
But, I DO wish the Russian army would stop walking across my tongue... barefoot.
