This year for my new year's resolutions I vowed to do a few things and have stuck to them all:

1 - quit smoking cold turkey.

2 - quit alcohol for 60 days (so as not to relapse and smoke again but I think I'm going to go longer. Not really missing alcohol).

3 - Stop drinking caffeine. No tea, no coffee... just green tea.

4 - No eating out whatsoever for 60 days. After that, twice per week MAXIMUM and this includes coffee shops, so that ...
This year for my new year's resolutions I vowed to do a few things and have stuck to them all:

2 - quit alcohol for 60 days (so as not to relapse and smoke again but I think I'm going to go longer. Not really missing alcohol).

3 - Stop drinking caffeine. No tea, no coffee... just green tea.

4 - No eating out whatsoever for 60 days. After that, twice per week MAXIMUM and this includes coffee shops, so that green tea better be from home.

5 - Exercise (cardio) for at least 30 minutes each day.

6 - Eat breakfast every day.

7 - Take vitamin supplements every day.


That's it folks. So here are my results at day 47 of the year:

- I have not smoked one puff this year.
- I have gone from 195 pounds to 180 and I can almost see a six-pack but it's still a few months off from bragging rights but everyone at work is commenting on how different I look.
- Two days before 2011 I booked an appointment with my doctor because I thought I was dying of an ulcer or something. Two weeks later she sent me for blood work. Tested EVERYTHING. I had nothing and now I have no symptoms or pain at all.
- I can do 35 more consecutive pushups than I could before I started all this thanks to http://hundredpushups.com/
- I started with a little bit of debt and in 47 days I have a savings account with almost $2000 and no debt.

Heyo Bill!

Just wondering, what supplements are you taking? I haven't gotten my mix quite right.

Also, do you have an opinion on either L-Carnitine or taking extra iodine as a supplement for a thyroid boost? (I doubt I'm at risk for hyperthyroidism!!)

I read your homepage Bill. Congrats on quitting smoking!!! Thats the best you can do for your health! I quit almost 14 years ago, cold turkey. I started my new life of being nonsmoker on April 20, 1997 and have not had even a little tiny puff since then and feel great! Breakfast is the most important meal of the day! Have a bowl of oatmeal (without all the junk on it). I have a bowl of oatmeal, and thats it. Nothing on it, so I can TASTE the oatmeal! Take vitamin supplements, but don't overdo the vitamin D. Depending on what state you live in. Like my state, the best state in the country, Oregon. we don't get much sun in the winter, early spring. emoticon

Hi Bill, wanted to stop by and let you know that I found your comments on the blog by Trillian, very interesting! It is amazing that racism is still alive and kicking in 2011. Peace.
