Bringing in Fall with a Smile:)

Wednesday, October 03, 2012

Okay, last week was a set back for me with trials and errors having my sweetie home everyday from his surgery and cooking and eating his favorites:) emoticon
I came so close to buying a pack of cigarettes this last weekend it was awful, emoticon but I DIDN'T. Its kind of like do I want to save my marriage but I am not married.
The stress of living with a smoker is unbearable some days.
emoticon So what I had to do was change my mind thinking, I had a xbox kinect that was never being used so I traded it in for a ps3 which my sweetie has one and just loves his shooting games lol
emoticon well for me I started doing Getting Fit with Mel B and looking into the other game also.
I am incorporating the ps3 workout games with Leslie Sansone I get bored really easy so had to change it up a bit to get my mind going in the right direction.
I started back using my step tracker also and added that to my fitness on here,
emoticon I will say I did get a game too called Tomb Raider lol that has been kind of fun. Always been a game player on fb and then on my ipad3 now I have the ps3.
emoticon emoticon between work taking care of my sweetie I have just a few hrs at night to chill out til the weekend.
So if you dont hear from me much during the week just know I love when you stop by and I do read your post on my lunch hr and try and keep up with everything,
We went apple picking a couple weeks ago looking for a great Spark recipe for apple crisp if anyone has any would love it
emoticon I am in a group with a Fall challenge which I need to get over there and see what is happening and my logging in with my Leslie workouts. My goal is to get better in coming in each day and spending at least 30 minutes with everything on here besides my not smoking posts.

We all have our little quirks to get off the couch and keep moving, A big Hug to everyone that gives that little push each day to make ourselves healthier.

    Congratulations on beating down that nicotine monster! I'll have a full 240 days tomorrow but I still make sure I stay on guard for those times I think I can just smoke one to make it through the day. Just one, I'm sure will totally derail me - NOPE - not going to do it because I want to be a NON smoker!

My DH, gotta love him, but he's still smoking & sometimes he just smells really bad. I've been turning that around & saying to myself, I don't smell like that & that is a good thing. One day he will get better like I did! Just wish it would be sooner than later!

    It is harder to take care of ourselves when we are taking care of someone else. My husband is having surgery on Monday. You are doing great. I love the exercise video games that are out there, I love my Zumba on the Xbox. Have a great day.

    emoticon When I quit smoking over 15 years ago my doctor told me you will be able to do not have an addictive personality..the problem is that your husband does and you will have to watch him smoke..Quitting smoking is not is one of the hardest things I have ever done..but as the years go by it gets easier..sometimes I still want one but I know I am not going to smoke..I did make the mistake of replacing cigarettes with food..Make healthy food choices..maybe zero calorie foods to snack on... emoticon

    Yay, you! You resisted the urge to smoke!
It sounds like your doing great (even though things around you may not have been so great).
The PS3 get fit with Mel B looks interesting. I've never tried any of the workouts like that (as I do not have a PS3, Wii, or such). Maybe one of these days!
Have a wonderful day!
