2nd pic is some easy art i've been playing with. I'll have lots more of them to post soon.

I smoked for 14 years. I was at about 1 1/2 packs a day. When i got pregnant i promised myself i would quit... but i couldn't. the stress made it so much harder! I bought a book called "the easy way to quit smoking" by Allen carr... i read it super slowly, and never really took it in. The book got lost in our move, and one day i found it. I read about 20 pages every night. I was getting excited, because i knew when i finished the book that i would quit. Well, one night (12/30/11 to be exact) I realized that i had just finished the book. I told myself I would quit in the morning, since i was not ready to give it up! then i realized that was a dumb idea... why go 8 hours without nicotine only to reintroduce it to my system?! So i got out of bed, nervous/excited, and went to have my final cigarette. I slowly puffed at it and when i put it out this sense of relief came over me. I was a non smoker! I admit i was nervous, and scared that it was going to be difficult, but i was so excited to finally be free! The first couple days were a little uncomfortable, but every day the cravings lessened. It's been 64 days now! :)
If you, or someone you know is a smoker and wants to quit, please read the book! I can not say enough about how easy it was for me! I recommend it to EVERYONE i know!
If anyone has ANY questions or need support, let me know! I know exactly what it's like to be super addicted to nicotine! and I now know how nice it is to not be!

Most people probably have a certain spot that their scale always sits... workout room, bathroom floor, etc. Well, our house is too small to really keep it out, so it gets tucked away in the bathroom. When weigh in day comes around, I place it down and weigh in. Simple right? well, one day i set the scale on our bath rug, read the number, got excited (like REALLY excited) and then thought, that can't be right... that is too much of a loss, so i put the scale on the hard floor... not so good of a number. So then I carry my scale into the spare bedroom and place it on the hard carpeted flooring... different number again. hmm... So, the big question is, where did i weigh in last week?! lol. I decided to go with the number in the spare bedroom because it was between the two, and I have a feeling I weighed in on the rug last week, but can't remember for sure! ugh! From now on i will weigh in in the spare bedroom, whether the weight is exactly right or not, I will at least be able to see if I've lost or gained!

.... I'm going to start DOING! There's just too much room for excuses when you "try" to do something. I know I can exercise, I know i can find time to. I know how to eat properly. So there's no reason to try to eat better, or try to fit in exercise. I'm just going to do it!
