I have been told I need to quit smoking, exercise and lose some weight. Well smoking and exercise were mostly singled out. My hdl and ldl levels are not what they are supposed to be. I was told I have the beginning of copd - granted I took the test with a sinus infection but I have felt short of breath so I know it is time. I quit as of monday morning 2/13/12. I have since eaten my way through stuff I normally would not want, my sinuses are really running now, acid reflux has come back and I truly am a bad tempered individual at times. An example of my appetite would be the big bag of boy scout caramel corn that has been sitting in my pantry since Thanksgiving. Since monday it no longer exists. A good point is I am finally drinking more water. They say water flushes nicotine out of the system. Hopefully it is picking up some fat molecules on the way. I have since in my twisted mind since quitting decided that if I can live through this, I should be able to exercise and the will power should be there to diet. I had no planned to blog about this but sorry guys I needed to vent.
