Well. One of the things I'd sort of like to do is give up artificial sweeteners. I say "sort of" because I don't WANT to give them up at all - I LOVE Diet Dr. Pepper, and I LOVE Splenda in my coffee. However, I keep reading about how shitty it is and how it's slowly killing all of us, and how it inflames arthritis pain, and how it actually sabotages your diet efforts. So, there's that. Today, I had my coffee without Splenda. I still used my full-of-chemicals creamer, though. Baby steps. Baby steps.
