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 3: 21-Day Sugar Detox
Sleep: 8.5 hours of very disrupted sleep. I woke up a bunch. Weird dreams too.
Day 3 and I am feeling much, much better.
Also. Knee is sore. Ugh.

am: 20-minute walk to coffee shop/bus stop
8:45am: 1 baked chicken sausage + 1 whole egg, 1 egg white (all cooked w. coconut oil) + hot sauce
- A part of me thinks I have an intolerance to eggs. I might need to start buying them from the farmers market and see how my body likes those.
10am: 12 oz black coffee
12pm: 1 spoon almond butter
2:30pm: pork adobo (pork spare ribs cooked in crock pot w. vinegar, coconut aminos, garlic), cauliflower "rice" + cabbage/onion sautéed w. coconut oil
