Get motivated: Exercise and no sugar will make me stronger. At least do it for that reason.
- Exercise (via running or gym) most days of the week.
- Pile the vegetables.
- Limited sugar and flour intake.
- Sleep for at least 7 hours per night.
Treat your body with respect to be healthy and happy. And maintain a sense of balance.

Day 16: 21-Day Sugar Detox (!)
I saw 140 this morning. Not in the 130's (soon though!) but I should not complain too much. According to my PT log from January 7, 2012, I weighed 150.6.
I am doing good things. I have to remember this and be proud of myself.
7am: Gym! Yay!
5 min p.t. dynamic stretches
adaptive motion trainer: 31 min
elliptical: 20 min
Total: 56 min
- I REALLY did not want to go to the gym this morning. And even there, I dreaded being on these machines. But I did it and I'm glad I did. Of course.
9:15am: 1 chicken sausage (w.o. casing) + garlic + red onion + rosemary + baby kale/spinach/chard cooked w. coconut oil
- A lovely breakfast post-workout is the best.
10:30am: black coffee
11:45am: small bowl pureed soup: broccoli + mushroom + ginger + garlic + onion + pepper flakes + lime + water + little bit o.o. w. little raw radish slices
1pm: 1 adult carrot
3pm: portion rotisserie chicken + salad: lamb lettuce + white mushrooms + red onions + carrots w. o.o./balsamic vinegar
6pm: salad: lamb lettuce + shredded chicken + white mushrooms + red onions + carrots + 1/4 very large avocado + 8 kalamata olives w. o.o./balsamic vinegar
- This made me happy.
7:45pm: probably too many spoons of coconut butter
8:45pm: 1/4 cup warmed canned pumpkin topped with couple spoons cold, whipped cream-like coconut milk + pumpkin pie spice
- Note to self: This is a lovely evening dessert and much more satisfying than many spoons of coconut butter. Better for me too!
9:30-11:30pm: coconut butter, tahini butter, 1 adult carrot, rotisserie chicken, coconut butter again
- Finishing up Peace Corps things for tomorrow. Stress. Eating. Excuses, excuses.
Note to self: Work in bedroom. NOT the living room, which is the neighboring room to the kitchen.
