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.

I woke up a little full this morning, so a first-thing workout would have been nice but I woke up late. :/ Post-work workout would be nice though!
Cranky by 4:30pm. I didn't bring enough food to work with me today. I just want to be home...
am: 15 minutes total walks to/from bus stops
pm: 15 minutes total walks to/from bus stops
9:30am: black coffee

12:45pm: 1 adult carrot
1:45pm: salad: lamb lettuce + white mushrooms + red onion + 7 kalamata olives + 1/4 very large avocado + o.o./balsamic vinegar
- I finally got a piece of my appetite back.
