Well on day 15 of my quit, I smoked 3 cigarettes!!!
There was no real reason for it, work wasn't stressful, I wasn't having a bad day just stopped and bought a pack on the way home from work and smoked! WHY!!!
I don't want to smoke, I don't want to die from lung cancer or heart disease or any of the other horrible things that smoking will do to me.
I want to be able to run a 5K, I want to be free from this damn addiction!
I will be starting over tomorrow at day one, I am trying to come up with reasons why I smoked today so the next time I am tempted I will know how to deal with it better.
Other than my horrible slip today, I have been doing great with exercising, eating and my yogi classes. I even lost 2 pounds since I joined SP. At least that is one thing to be proud of.

Wow! What a difference a weekend makes! I hit a low on Friday, was having some major cravings for a cigarette, eating everything in sight but turned it all around on Saturday.
Started out my day doing my C25K program week 2 day one. How invigorating!
After my run I went to see my nutrionist, who was even happier than I was that I quit, she gave me some wonderful tips to not gain weight while I quit (or at least not as much), she also gave me some vitamins to help combat the brain fog I've been experiencing since my quit.
I spent the rest of the day relaxing in the pool, not one craving all day!
Today I slept later than I have in years! Didn't get out of bed till 9am!
Started off my day taking a 90 minute yoga/meditation class at the yoga studio, what a great way to start the day. I was thinking of ways to start my day like that everyday but with my work schedule it just won't work so I 'll have to settle for just the weekends for now.
I do see a direct relationship between my exercise habits and my cravings and overall mood and I will be doing something everyday, either running, yoga or spin class to help reduce stress.
Overall, my first smoke-free weekend couldn't have been any better!
