Freelee's challenge: 1 year of doing the whole shebang--diet, exercise, water, sleep, etc. Stop worrying about weight gain and the momentary ups and downs of detox. Just do it!

*My honest reporting of my consumption is not meant to imply an endorsement of eating salt. Salt is a banned substance here at 30BAD, for good reason
16 cups/ 128 oz.
Slept pretty well from 10:30-7:30
Helping people at my job
Talked to a sweet old guy who is on oxygen and housebound and brightening his day
White coating on my tongue
Swollen, dark under-eye circles in the morning
Minor redness and bumpiness on forehead, nose, chin and upper chest
Periods of intense itching (insect bites) and brief periods of feeling "yeasty"
Just feeling a bit off lately. Having days with little appetite, then getting under-carbed and eating whatever I have quick access to. I was desperate at work because I hadn't eaten enough, had no money with, and the only safe option was a plain bagel. Then I immediately started stuffing my face with the family's evening meal when I got home.
I think I am going to restart 21 days of salt-free, and try to keep the calories consistently up. I know how to be better prepared for work days. It takes consistency, juicing oranges the night before if necessary, or asking for more help.
