30 Day Eat Clean Challenge - Day 4

This is what I've been working on. I could have waited until the 1st of February to start but I figured I would give myself a little wiggle room in case I wasn't able to complete a goal for the day. 

I'm still keeping up with not eating after 7, but I was only able to drink 5 bottles of water yesterday instead of 6. Hopefully I can do it today. I've already finished one bottle before 5 and am aiming to have another bottle down before 8. I'm going to repeat #3 because I didn't complete it, and I also need to go food shopping today to be able to complete #4.

I also looked over the rest of my challenges and got a good idea of what to expect in the next couple weeks. Some of the goals I will need to start preparing for right now or it will be too brutal.

Like #6. Eating within an hour of waking up. Ugh. Usually when I first wake up I feel like throwing up, until I've been awake for about two hours and then I'm able to eat something. I'll probably wake up and make a piece of toast and see how that works. Then when I get to more difficult challenges, like #5 says to eat protein and carbs together at every meal. It will be easier for me to do that if I am already used to having a meal early. Adjusting your challenge realistically to help you reach your goals is OK!

#11 says to start eliminating sugars by switching to 1-2 black coffees or green teas. Today, I started preparing for that as well by adding half a tbs of sugar, and 1 tbs of creamer to my coffee. (vs 1 heaping tbs of sugar and 2 tbs of chocolate creamer!) It tastes a little weird, but hopefully I'll get used to it. My Aunt said she just put less and less sugar each time until her taste buds got used to the black coffee. I'm also going to try and keep an eye out on other things that have sugar.

As far as my work out routine. My day was so stressful yesterday that the minute I clocked out, I ran home instead of staying after to exercise. I did however do some light stretching for about 30 minutes during my break. I'm still very sore from Tuesdays workout and I'm wondering if I pushed myself a little too much because I'm still having difficulty using the stairs. 

How much should I "feel the burn" and for how long?
When is it ok to exercise some more?
