Day Four Of My Little Experiment
My net died yesterday, so I couldn't post this.
No clue, my sleep is such utter crap lately. I keep waking up, feeling extremely hot and congested.

Thoughts and Stuff
I'm feeling pretty good lately. I'm finding that my mind isn't as preoccupied with permanent thoughts of calories and what I'm going to eat, and when I'm going to eat, and if I'm going to just become morbidly obese overnight. Turning the focus more onto trying to optimize my health seems to be pretty useful. I'm not in denial though, and I won't lie, I still have every intention of losing body fat, and getting to somewhere I feel comfortable. The difference is I'm not actively restricting and intentionally burning off any possible extra calorie through crazy amounts of steady-state cardio. I'm really, reallyyy enjoying my exercise, and enjoying eating clean again.
I was reading up on how coconut oil can be used for acne breakouts, and saw that although some people were saying how amazing it is, and how it cleared up their skin instantly etc., some people were saying it made their skin break out like crazy. But, I noticed a slight pattern in those people: they would all leave the coconut oil on. I figure that if the CO is meant to pull toxins to the surface, leaving it on would equate to just letting all the toxins accumulate on the surface, which would lead to more break outs. Does that make sense? Either way, I tried it myself during my post-workout shower, but I made sure to wash it off, and then rubbed lemon juice on. Although I don't know if it'll come back and bite me in the ass in the long run, my skin felt and looked reallyyy good right after. I'm going to try and keep it up for a while to see what happens!
