End of second day and all is going all right with the cessation

Tuesday, May 10, 2011

I am definitely blessed with a coworker that understands how my brain works. Yesterday he gave me a busy work task that requires all of my attention to get done. This task does not allow me to notice that the day has gone by and I have not even had a craving to smoke by the time I head out the door for home.

At home I check my e-mails and look for notice, of the blogs I have started subscriptions to, for new entries. I then jump in to work out clothes and start pushing my cardio work out a little and the do the upper body. Figuring out to actually use my adjustable bench to it's fullest finally, instead of potentially hurting my self with bad unsupported form.

Finish the evening work out and change in to regular shorts. Sit and meditate for as close to 20 minutes as I can, immediately after my work out. The while still in the blissful state of my meditation, I do a little recovery work or reading. Followed by a new adventurous dinner recipe.
I need to work on the seasoning for this, It was just a little bland on the Creamed Asparagus Toast, although adding minced fresh ginger to the Vegetable Fried Rice made it scrumptious. (Both of these recipes can be found in the Spark Recipes and the flavor issues I mention are solely my own tastes not to be confused with the actual recipes)

Finally I spent some time finishing a book that I have been reading for my 3rd Saturday Book club, finished it and felt sad and satisfied at the same time. It was an interesting book with a lot of back ground on the original back to the land organic farming, back in the early 70's. And now I'm getting some blog time in before I crash and start the very similar day off tomorrow.

Sorry all just a hanging in there kind of Blog today. In the future we will all see what kind of bazaar my mind can come up with once it is not so consumed with cessation worries.

DAy one past and day two just starting

Tuesday, May 10, 2011

Well yesterday went well. Only had the thought and temptation to smoke inter my mind a couple of times. I was rather busy yesterday though, I do not know if I can count on that today to keep my mind occupied and away from the desire to pollute my lungs.

I feel ok this morning. I am looking forward to my afternoon cardio and upper body work out. I always feel good after this work out, especially when I up the weights to a new level and push a little. I have to keep reminding my self not to push the weights too much, seeing how I'm not looking for more size but more strength and endurance. So far I have been able to keep this in perspective.

I will read some more blogs of others tonight to keep my motivation up and maybe if the feeling is right motivate, encourage or congratulate someone else. It all helps me keep on track and push myself just a little more to better myself for me. emoticon

  


1st blog and some honesty.

Sunday, May 08, 2011

This is my first blog and I have only been thinking about starting to blog just recently. Especially after reading some of the great blogs of all the people on this site. Though I do not expect to be anywhere near their blog prowess.

So the first topic I have to discuss is due to a comment left on my spark page. It was not bad by the person who left it. It was bad by me that I have not edited my spark page to reflect that I am once again struggling to quite smoking.

It happened about 3 months ago, maybe a little shorter, but any way I let myself get triggered and gave in to my smoking habit once again. I started with my Godson telling me that he had be smoking over in Iraq, as I'm driving him to the airport so he can fly back to rejoin his unit over there. Bottom line I felt the urge after he made the comment, and I did nothing to stop myself from falling back into the habit again.

So right this moment I am jumping back on the wagon and committing my self to not smoke ever again. Tomorrow I am not going to buy any cigarettes, I am already out this moment so I am not cheating by having some squirreled away. I am bringing several packs of gum with me and my cell phone will have a full charge to call friends that can give me support to make it through the day with out puffing.

I'm doing this for me, instead of to me. First step is happening right here and now. I want to stop and improve my chances of being around long enough to fulfill my purpose here on this big blue marble. emoticon(ok, here it looks green)

Now to spend some time reading the spark. emoticon

    I am sorry you are struggling.. and to try to quit smoking and "diet" at the same time is so much harder! Stick with it and take it one day at a time!~You can do it, You are worth the effort.

    If I can quit smoking, YOU can quit smoking emoticon One of the methods I used was to procrastinate - every time I wanted a cigarette I would tell myself to wait 20 minutes, then I would be sure to get busy with something, and to think about other things, and the craving would pass without me lighting up. emoticon
