I didn't work out nearly enough and I cheated twice, I did however pass my AF physical training test a week ago so I think for some reason that's why I let myself be lazy. This was the hardest week as far as quitting smoking, too. It always happens this way. I can always go the first 3 weeks without much trouble, but then I get beyond 3 weeks and it seems to just get harder and harder for me. Like, I want to give up because it's so much work not to and I think I can't take it anymore. But I've yet to have even one puff and I am pretty proud of myself for that I guess. Even if I have been slacking with the working out and I ate out with DH once, I guess I am still doing good not smoking.
Sigh. I really wish this came natural to me. You know those people who were born with that gene for healthiness and skinniness and it all comes easy to them? Why did I get jipped? I know I sound melodramatic, but sometimes it's just really frustrating that I have to work SO hard for just a 5 pound loss. :-(
I am going back on day shift next month so I am pretty sure that's going to help. It's easier for me to go to the gym at 2pm versus 10pm. Plus here in Germany Spring will be starting soon and I can begin training outside. One short term goal I have is to run the 5K Cancer Fun Run in April on base without stopping. I am pretty sure by then 3.1 miles should be nothing.
