Sort of a non event day. I am working on quitting smoking. I decided not to make myself too crazy this time but take it as I can. I managed all day yesterday without a cigarette and until 2 pm today. Now I have had 2 and will have 2 more before bed at 8. Tomorrow I start again at none and go 2 and 1/2 days without and then have 3 or 4 that afternoon.. I will wean myself off of them over about a week or 2. Much less stress than just quitting cold turkey and I think doable. Have to get smokefree so this should work. ( hope, hope, hope )
I didn't do any exercise today as neck and back are in spasms today. Tomorrow I will walk at 5 am and get a video in later on. I can take a day off if I need to and I don't beat myself up over it.
My eating has been really good this past week. I did notice that I was "hungry" after I had finished my dinner last night. I couldn't figure out why as I had eaten my snacks and my proper food portions. Then it hit me, I usually go have a smoke after dinner. I wasn't hungry at all. I can see why people can gain a lot of weight when they quit smoking. I got a bottle of water and had that instead.
I have decided not to weigh myself again until the first MOnday in May. I think if I take away the scale fear I might have better success just doing what I know is right and tracking what I do. I am shocked to hear myself say that as I have always lived and died by the scale but I have been around the same 5 pounds , gain or loss,, for a year now and if nothing changes, nothing changes, so I am making changes.
WIll try to blog more often but some days there isn't a whole lot to say. Maybe I need to get doing more so there is always something to say? LOL Maybe I will. Hmmmm
