Quitting Smoking = Good; Consequent Overeating = Bad!

Thursday, April 16, 2009

I'm re-dedicating myself to a 30-day detox plan (like the one I did in Jan-Feb, which was great), because I've gone over my cal limit by A LOT every day this week!!!! While I am working out a lot and regularly and am VERY strong in my legs, heart, lungs - I am back up to 159! This feels awful.

I'm SO proud of quitting smoking! On Saturday, it will be a whole month without cigarettes! I am trying to stay focused on how positive that is and realize that I can get through this post-cigarette time and lose the weight I've gained in the last month (about 5 pounds I think).

I also ran 12 miles last Saturday and it was a REALLY strong run. I'm excited to continue my training this summer and get in even better shape and run longer distances!

I gotta re-dedicate myself to Spark, because it DOES help me stay focused and NOT overeat - even though it's especially hard to stick to right now, I know I can do it!

    have you tried chewing gum? i read an article that said chewing gum can help wiht snacking so now whenever i want to snack and i'm not actually hungry, i pop in a peace of gum and consciously choose not to snack- it's hard, but it works for me.

    It is so great that you've gotten all the way through one month completely off cigarettes! Keep up the good work! You're inspiring me to get back on track myself.

    OMG! I am sooo proud of you! That is AWESOME! You should definitely be really proud of yourself! Don't be too worried about the scale going back up... you were concentrating on something more important. ;-) Now you can get back into those other healthy habits.
    You rock!!
