Giving up smoking

Thursday, August 21, 2014

I am on day 4 of no smoking yay! I was silly because I actually gave up years ago and had a 6 year quit. I was silly and for the last year I have been smoking again on and off. When your smoking going the gym and eating healthy seemed a little pointless. Feeling good about myself today and more positive. Had lots of healthy foods for lunch - get those vitamins back in me and looking forward to getting in the gym to test run these new lungs :-) xx emoticon

    good job on giving up smoking. emoticon I am doing the same but could not go cold turkey. I have smoked since 11 and now are almost 53 with 2 yrs of quit time in there. I have not smoked since july 17th but I am doing vapor. I am slowly cutting down the mils of nicotine on that too. till I will finally just go to vapor then can deal with getting it out of my hand. Its hard now I loved smoking and still want one. It cost to much I have to stop and already can notice a difference money wise. emoticon emoticon emoticon

The sun is shining and I am happy smiley even though I am at work. Healthy breakfast eaten and vitamins taken.

My weekend has been pretty embarrasing
- went out Friday night with freinds and sweated more than anyone else when in a hot bar. Had to leave to keep cooling down
- seen a lot of people checking out my gorgeous mates and I felt like the hot sweaty freind
- sunday afternoon walk with my partner and had to keeo holding my coat in front of my tum as it was that swollen I yet again looked pregnant.

Its time to take some steps in the right direction. I seem to be feeling a lot of what I would call lower end emotions lately - Jelousy, bitterness, sadness, lonleyness and I feel a lot of these stem from being insecure, Maybe if I strated to look after myself better I would feel more positive.

Things to be grateful for
-Sunny day

Today's positive
-eaten my first healthy breakfast in a while

Plan of action for today
-Get some work done at work which will make me feel more on top of things
- Swim tonight

    Love the positives you add to your blogs.
Just engrave on your brain the day you held your coat over your tum - I do it all the time, tho it's getting better - it may encourage you to stay positive an keep going. My 'engraving' moment is the day someone ( whom I don't like at the best of times) recommended me a new 'outsize' shop in Brighton - Gee thanks so much!
Take care and keep at it emoticon

Been unfaithful to spark people.....whoops

Thursday, June 19, 2014


I am back. I sneaked off for a bit to try 'my fitness pal' as I felt like a change might motivate me but it isn't as good so here I am. I have had a lot of weddings on lately but instead of motivating me I seem to have become stressed and turned to food again. I sometimes seem to get down and comfort eat and don't take care of myself like I should but I know when I am sparking I am being the best I can be in every way and its a real positive for me.

I plan to choose a new reason at the start of each day that will motivate me to spark. I also plan to pick blog things I am grateful for and log any positive things that I have achieved each day. Hopefully this will keep me focused and smiley.

Day One

Reason to spark - I want to feel good about myself

Positives - Going the gym. Not been in ages due to a injury. It wasn't as bad as I expected and actually enjoyed it!

Things to be grateful for - work buying me an I pad - hopefully this will help me to keep up to date with my sparking.

Plans - At the minute my diet is awful and I am even smoking. Plan is to tackle the smoking, try and get myself back in the gym. Start eating better - cut down on sugar especially fizzy drinks and start introducing fruit and veg.

Wish me luck

    emoticon emoticon VERY pleased to see you XXX
Do indeed wish you Good Luck. None of it's easy, is it?
Don't know 'my fitness pal' but I DO know that I've never found another site where there is so much unconditional friendship and support as here.
Focused and smiley sounds like a good plan. I should probably make it an aim for myself - I slither so easily. I've got a very debilitating virus right now which I'm told I just have to 'sit out' which is obviously not helpful. I've taken a few pounds off - put a few back . . . the old story in fact. It IS getting better though - so that's my 'focused and smiley' moment today.
Will be thinking of you and wishing you well - tho I haven't got the energy to be here as much as I'd like. Hoping that will change as the virus works it way out of my system and I'll be good to go.
Hang on to your determination and keep me posted. BIG emoticon

    Welcome back to SP! I love this website and all of the friends that I have met here!
I keep learning that a healthy lifestyle is about consistency, not perfection. (Yes, I do have to keep learning that lesson over and over. I guess I am a slow learner, LOL.)


Good luck!
