Live Below The Line 2013 - Day 1 Recap (Video) - Be Grateful

Here's my Day 1 Recap (Video) for April 29th as I begin my 5 days journey to Live Below The Line in 2013

"I had to start out pretty early in the morning and visit one of my senior citizens. Instead of having our regular toast with tea together, I had an oatmeal packet with some raisins. 
I do believe that action is a product of change and teaches me how to be grateful for where I am in life. On Day 1, I had my lentils with onion for lunch and then for dinner, lentils with onion and the rice pudding. I realized how lucky I was and so many others, who didn't have to worry about how much food we ate. However, every time I desire to make a difference, there is always tests, but in those tests I truly realize how much strength I possess, to follow through with the plan. Overall, my first day went well. I kept reminding myself that I was in a challenge and could only eat what I prepared on the $1.50 a day budget, especially when I had to go out to run errands. It was nice to hear that small little voice inside telling me, "You can do this. Your food is at home". :)"
