Nothing much for exercise today. Ran into San Francisco to get my mail. I walked the 1.5 miles to work from the train and that was it.

I stopped at GNC in the City and bought magnesium aspertate. I need the aspertate and only GNC has it. I also bought SlimQuick drink mix since it does help suppress appetite and I have overtime today (see below).

I stopped at McDonald's on my walk from BART to work for a Diet Coke. I finally figured out why I'm such a diet soda addict - it's a comfort food to me. I was feeling tired and just kinda down. I drank that Diet Coke as I walked and I felt better.

I also stopped at Payless shoes for a new pair of running shoes. I found a pair that was normally $28 on sale for $12! Hopefully they will work for me. I did insist on wide width this time. After my last couple of pairs of regular running shoes it's time to only buy what fits my wide feet.

I have overtime today so I skipped breakfast to save the calories for later. I punched in at 3 pm (my usual time) and won't get off work until sometime between midnight and 12:30. I packed my gym bag for tomorrow and generally tried to do everything last night so that I can get to bed quicker tonight.

Back to the gym for lower body work tomorrow.

I think there's not enough fat in my diet. I already eat very low-fat and then I sometimes take the Alli on top of that. I've been getting sick a lot and I think it might be from lack of fat. I didn't get sick over the summer because the weather was warmer, so hopefully things will improve as spring comes. At any rate, I'm going to try to take Alli a bit less, but still keep it around for high-fat items.
