I'm on day 26 (had to count) and may extend it to 90 days. I'm still having really inconsistent energy levels and brain fog, so I decided to cut out coffee. Today's my last day. I'm quite sad. I ordered some Choffy (roasted cocoa beans you brew like coffee), so hopefully it's a decent substitute. I'm still using cocoa powder, but will cut that out if I don't see improvement in a couple of weeks. I'm adjusting and it's not bad at all, just can't eat out, which we don't really do anyways.
My exercise is kind of secondary to all of this. I try to walk three hours a week and do about an hour of strength training. If I'm tired I try to rest instead of push through it. That's tough for me, but I figure my cortisol and adrenaline levels are probably out of whack due to the way I've been treating myself for the past several years. Healing first.
