It is currently 1:00 p.m. on Monday, February 19th. It has only been 12ish hours since the SNAP Challenge started. I am already struggling with feeling hungry. I was up at 12:00 a.m. this morning because I had to do my last round for my RA job. I usually bring a snack with me, so I automatically felt the difference in changing what I usually do. My stomach was already starving. It was my instinct saying that we want what we cannot have. I was walking around my different residence halls trying to walk by pretty quickly. My lifestyle is to always have snacks and smaller meals. This will be a real shock to my body.
In my next blog post, I will talk about the groceries I bought. I first went to the dollar store to see which groceries I wanted. I used about 18 dollars at the store. I then went to the Giant with fellow classmate Myranda to find about 7 more dollars worth of groceries. I did not get any name brand things, and I had to think of multiple things. I live in a freshmen hall on campus because I am an RA., and I do not usually cook foods. It will be interesting to finding the foods.
