Saturday December 1, 2012
This was a good day. I started the day with a seven mile interval run. I'm nursing a sore foot, and breaking in new running shoes, but it was a pretty good run. I walked more than usual but I got some miles in.
We're super busy with holiday orders at the shop. So, after my run I showered and headed to the shop to get some things done. I worked for a few hours. I have supplies at the shop to be able to fix simple meals there and that is very helpful. I had breakfast and lunch while I was there.
A while back I mentioned that I was going to try and eliminate a lot of the artificial sweeteners from my diet and try to use mainly "real" foods. I haven't had a diet soda in about 4 days, I think. It may be longer but I'm not sure. I switched to half and half in my coffee, rather than sugar free French vanilla Coffee-Mate, about a week ago. I'm still using some stevia but have cut most of the sucralose and aspartame from my diet. The aching in my legs is significantly reduced so I really think I am on to something here.
I'm excited to hear what the changes to the Weight Watchers plan will be. The new plan rolls out today in meeting rooms. I'll hear about it on Friday when I go to my meeting. I've poked around on line and it looks like the changes are mainly with the tools and not so much with the plan itself. It will be interesting to find out. I'm almost tempted to go to an early meeting but I'm going to wait until Friday to hear it from my leader.
