I mentioned before that I am DONE with diet sodas. I am really wanting to get, and keep, aspartame out of my diet. I had my last beloved Diet DP a week ago today. During this last week, I have gone to the gym six times, done two strength training workouts at home, drank four cups of coffee, and have felt all together GREAT. It's amazing. I don't know if it's the lack of aspartame, a different mind-set, drinking tons of water, vitamins, or a combo, but something is working because I feel great. I'm even getting up in the wee morning hours to go to the gym.

Today's schedule went something like this:
5:15 up and at 'em for the 30 minute commute to the Y near my work
6:00 Elliptical (33 minutes)
6:40 Treadmill (30 minutes-ran/walked two miles and my old achy knees felt great)
Shower/clean up at the Y
8:15 Arrived at hotel where off-site meetings were. Yes, today was a bonus as I didn't have to be at my desk at the normal 7:30 a.m.
5:00 Elliptical (33 minutes)
6:00 Volunteer in-service
9:00 Upper body workout (30 minutes with weights/band on the Wii)
I feel great! It's amazing. If I could manage that sort of workout five days/week, would I get skinny? I don't know, but if I feel as good as I do now, it'll be worth it!
Now--10:30 and bedtime! I have more meetings tomorrow and they provide lunch, so no food to share. I will have a new bento up in a couple of days though. :)
Thanks for reading.
