Off the Wagon. . . ?

Wednesday, August 19, 2009

So, I kinda fell off the wagon. I say kinda, because unlike all the times before, I really didn't change my eating habits. My usual trend is to get really into watching what I eat for about 2 weeks, and then binge like crazy when I get bored. This time I didn't pay attention to when or what I was eating necessarily, but when I think back about it, I really wasn't eating that badly. I wasn't sitting down to a plate of nachos or a big bowl of mashed potatoes and gravy at 10 o'clock at night, nor was I eating Ben and Jerry's for breakfast. I definitely could have done better, and I certainly need to log in and keep track, but I'm kinda. . . proud. I mean, there are serious changes that have taken root for me to not go back to the same old thing.
Biggest, best change I've made?

are you ready?


I haven't bought, smoked, or even thought about cigarettes for a week now. My husband is over the moon about that one. He doesn't care if my waistline doesn't shrink an inch, and never really has, but he's never liked kissing an ashtray. I have to admit that I'm pretty psyched about it too. I ran, not walked, ran all the way up my stairs yesterday and never got the least bit winded. : )

Change is a commin'. . .

    Good for you!! I have heard others say that quitting smoking is just as hard as losing weight. Great job also about "somewhat" falling off the wagon. I applaud you for trying to do both at the same time. Good luck!!
