Here is Yonge-Dundas Square getting into the act.
And here are a couple of displays along Bloor.
What has been a bit overwhelming is how Coke has just taken over the TTC station at Union. While it isn't strictly Christmas-y, the station has a certain red glow to it.
It is making it somewhat of a challenge to my vow to give up all Coke (and Pepsi). It is just about two months now, since I took the pledge, and while I have been sorely tempted, I have not slipped up yet. While I am not able to work quite as much in the late evenings as I used to, in general the switch to tea seems sustainable (if somewhat monotonous). This station ad blast will not help; however, I will try to stay strong.
I think after the holidays I will try to up the ante and cut back more on sugar and particularly sugary snacks at work, and then to find some exercises I can do at home in the evening. There isn't much point in vowing to go to the gym, since I know I won't be able to commit to that. I might be able to integrate more swimming at Regent Park Aquatic Centre into my routine, but I don't want to commit to that right now. In any case, there are definitely too many temptations to keep me where I don't want to be in terms of not in shape.
