On clouds!

Saturday, May 12, 2012

I started runnin three days ago!! I can't believe today too, a saturday no less, (hate that expression), but Saturday found me at 6 AM on the Asphalt!!!! I did it nevertheless (another un-favourable word). Anyway, I did it and lemme tell ya! It was gruesome, i kept lookin at all those beautiful yards passing by, with grass so fine and neat and I was thinking of knocking on ppl's doors to find out what they are doing right and why my lawn looks so shabby! (Understatement by the way). Before I knew it, I had completed, managed, made, 5 freakin miles in =====wait for it====30 minutes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Let the drums roll!!! I had a blast y'all, until after stretching...well...uh...kinda had a cigarette...damn damnity dat!!! guess what am trying to say is, you win some but not all, right? It doesn't help that i heard a statistic about this neither: That 7% of people who workout, smoke a cigarette after!! WHY! WHY! Why would a normal person trying to correct their health do this. Redundant comes to mind!!!! Or Counteractive, I might as well smoke right after Doc has given me a prognosis/diagnosis of lung cancer!! I guess I am beating myself pretty hard on this one, but I know how much I distate smoking. I don't even like second smoke!!! UGH!!


Doing it!

Okay, so day two of my comeback, Yeah!!! So I did ten minutes on my elliptical, gruesome, coz I've had it set at 6, so we are talking a hard step each time. Nevertheless, it showed I burnt 145 cals, so feeling ecstatic, I did ten minutes of strenght training from the site and I feel wonderful!! Thank you everyone for your encouragement, fingers crossed so I don't smoke. One step at a time, right?!! Good day y'all!

Okay, so after reading some motivational articles on the website, I geared myself up to get up and dust myself. So today morning, I did around ten minutes of cardio, am not gonna go gung-ho anymore, which is the recipe for disaster. Next step, see how I do with the no smoking situation. But again, one step at a time!!!

I can't seem to get out of this rut. I have only worked out once since rejoining. And went back to smoking, ugh! I don't know what or how to get myself going. I am getting frustrated and my belly shows the weight am gaining!!!! I don't know how to follow through with this plan...

  I understand where you are coming from. I lost 30 lbs. last year and have since put 10 back on. You can do it though. If you can get yourself to workout, just imagine it paired with healthy eating and the weight you will lose. I recently bought a decent exercise bike on ebay for $120. If you can afford it, I would recommend it. It's easier than dragging yourself to the gym. emoticon

Another new beginning...

Am on my third day of not smoking, I am getting headaches and my body is still withdrawing from the nicotine. My goal is to put away the money I would otherwise use for cigarettes, aside and at the end of this month see how much money I have saved, while at the same time how much weight I have lost.
My second goal: No alcohol, coz I know that will only trigger my craving for nicotine. So, my challenge this week is to abstain and do the work outs and eat healthy...Good luck to me, I know I can do this!!! emoticon
