Eating healthy on a budget can be a challenge. If you have some time for prep (or a slow cooker), you can whip up some very inexpensive and healthy meals. Try making some soups, brown rice with lentils or beans, hummus etc. It will definitely be cheaper and healthier than buying fries. Also, don't lose motivation, we all have better weeks and worse weeks! You can try and just take a 30-minute walk before bedtime, it will get you moving a bit and, hopefully, will help you sleep better too.

At least you have the right atitude about it - just keep plugging ahead and you will succeed - just do not let yourself give in! You can do this!!!

I heard melatonin was helpful to fall asleep (not staying asleep) and can only be taken for very short periods. If you're tired by 8, why not go to sleep then ? It might be boring but you don't eat while sleeping and it lets your body recuperate when needed.

For the rest, one day does not a diet make. Keep trying to make the best choices and you will get there.

Do not give up. hang in there and if you cannot just remember why you are doing this. remember sometimes fresh carrots are not to expensive so ry that and snack on them. Just because you fell off the wagon do not give up okay.smile
