Bad habits are hard to break

Monday, April 29, 2013

I was doing great...meeting all my goals plus some. I was feeling great! Very energized and happy. But a couple of weeks ago i decided to skip a couple of days here and there and have some fun. But then i skipped a couple more...then the weekend came. And before you know it....i'm scarfing down fast food and pop, having a few too many beers, which leads to more cigarettes being smoked, followed by being drained and lazy the next day. I haven't exercised since Wednesday emoticon

But I did go for my first jog yesterday (okay so it was a walk). After two miles my dog was panting and taking breaks every 5 minutes so we didn't go very far. I'm not sure if I'm getting fitter or if my dog is just really lazy, but it surprised me that he was so tired and i wasn't. I did enjoy the walk though, just wish i could do it more often.

Well time to get back on track and kick those bad habits again

    Been there, done that.
    Don't beat yourself up. It's good that you got right back on track.

    I stopped smoking 10 years ago, but I know what you mean about too much food, drinks, and cigarettes, one leads to the other. I had to stop smoking because I literally couldn't breathe, it's an awful feeling.

    My advice to you is to keep trying to quit smoking. Each time you fail and try again is a step closer to quitting for good. I am in a better place now without the cigarettes. Although there are a few times when I would love to have a cigarette with my glass of wine, but it only lasts for a second.

    I have 196 days of Smobriety... pretty new to the no smoking and quitting bad habits thing. But Since I starting quitting bad habits, I have found a couple things that work. You should join one of the no smoking teams or breaking bad habits teams to learn how real people were finally able to drop the habit. Welcome to the team!

    And MISSCUS, i use an ecig too. I use the Blu's, i keep one in my purse and one in my car. I have cut back to 5-10 cigs a day, but when im drinking i tend to smoke a lot more.
    I walked 2 more miles yesterday within 30 minutes. (that's a lot for me) This time my dog was so excited to do it again that he pretty much dragged me. We only stopped once and that was so he can say hi to a group of women who were taking a smoke break outside a store.

    I use a e cigarette, but I still slip up and buy a pack every few weeks. It's a tough nut to crack!! The e cigarette doesn't leave you breathless, and costs a fourth of what cigs cost. You might think about trying it out to help you cut back and maybe even quit.
    It's good that you can run. Maybe in time your pooch will get more fit and keep up with you. Keep trying. Our doggies need their exercise too. Good for you taking him with you!! Oh, sometimes it's good to take a week off and get a good rest. The beer, well, I'm guilty of that too so I truly understand. Hot weather here in Arizona makes me want a cold one to end my hot day!! Just not everyday. Keep it as a treat, and run a little farther the next day, LOL~~

    It's good that your baseline fitness level is higher than it used to be!
