Although I havent included the lemon in my tally as it was such a small amount- I added it all week to some of my water and as a dressing for my vegetables. I thought it was important to incorporate some lemon juice into my diet for so many reasons! Check out my Health with a Twist post to read more about the health benefits of lemon.
My exercise over 5 days has been
2 x 5k runs (Monday & Friday am)
3x hot yoga classes
1x weights & cardio gym session
Walks with my dog twice a day.
I had to be extra organised today because of my travel plans to Melbourne and that I had very little food left. I packed my porridge and my carrots which was a good lesson, both on money saving and also healthy eating when travelling. So often we waste money on food that isn't very good for us due to limited options at airports. However packing my own snacks solved both of these problems and I won't hesitate to take some nuts or carrots on my next flight too.
I made it through Live Below the Line!
I have learned so much from this challenge- mostly about how little we really do need to get by. With another 2 or 3 items I can happily create many more meals on a budget of $15 or $20 for the week instead of my usual $100 grocery bill. I missed green tea but was sleeping so well that I've decided to cut out even my occasional afternoon coffee at work.
Thanks again for all the support! Live Below the Line has been an incredible experience and it has changed my outlook on so many aspects of my life, financially, nutritionally and emotionally.
