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!!

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...

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!!!
