Still not smoking! Yay! I've had a couple of emotional or stressful moments where I wanted a cigarette, but then I just said to myself, "No one can make me start smoking again. No matter how mad I get, no one can make me." I turned my quitting into an act of rebellion. Whatever works.
Quitting over break has been really a good idea too.
I'm also looking into GymPact, a way to get paid (a tiny bit) to work out. Every tiny bit helps and keeps me motivated. The other end of the motivation is a penalty if you don't work out. I haven't yet decided how steep my penalty should be.
Up next: Quitting smoking some more. (1/2/14)
Sleep: Min. of 7 hours per night (12/23/13)
Starting "the plan" (1/3/14)
Buying a gym membership (January-ish)
Drinking 8 glasses of water a day. (restart 12/27/13)
Keeping a handwritten checklist of weight loss activity (restart 12/24/13)
Get to 10,000 steps in one day (12/26/13)
Sign up for GymPact (soon)
I'm prepared this time to put my all into it. I recently read that the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force recommends intensive behavioral treatment for all obese adults. I'm going at it from all angles, but mostly from the angles of consistency and awareness.
