Day 3-Arianne/Live United Challenge

It's Day 3 of my Live United challenge and it hasn't gotten any easier. I find myself thinking about food more than I normally do and I notice a change in my mood. I'm more irritable, i'm tired and i'm having trouble concentrating on my work.

It's hard to have to focus so much on what i'm eating and when i'll be eating next, it's a constant countdown to the next meal. It's a necessity to count out my portions so I ensure I have enough food to last me all the way through Sunday.

  1. It's amazing how something that seems so basic can have such a dramatic affect on your mood, your concentration - your ability to do your job.
