500 calories - day 1!

So, it is 6.30pm and I have eaten my 500 calories for the day. I woke up hungry (actually, I went to bed hungry last night :() but had a cup of green tea. Youngest child was ill in the night, so I was tired and my plans for 'fasting' at work were scuppered as I had to take the day off to look after him.

By 11ish I felt a headache coming on, so I ate my Graze box 'love mix' (98 calories) which was tasty and staved off the hunger pains for a short while. By 12.30 I was hungry again so had another green tea. By 2pm I was feeling a little light headed and was very hungry, so I had my Hairy Dieters Minestrone soup with one Ryvita Thin (135 calories). This was very tasty but didn't fill me up for long and I was counting down the hours until I could start cooking dinner ... At half five, dinner was on, and all consumed by 6.10! I was surprised at how much 40g of dry couscous grows to (267 calories).

Now I have to get through the rest of the evening, with just a cup of green tea to look forward to! Overall, today has been easier than I thought (I know I still have a few hours to go!). I've already learnt that the hunger pains come in waves, and I can get through the dull, empty feeling for quite a while! 

Tomorrow, I eat :)

 Here's what today's calories looked like:
