The Demon That Got Me

Thursday, January 28, 2010

Well, I am so sorry to say that for the past five days I have been smoking. I don't have anything to blame it on, but I just wanted to so I did. I think the most I ever smoked in one day was five cigarettes, so as of tomorrow I am back to day one of not smoking. I feel like I let everyone down. Especially my hubby. He is having Gastric Bypass surgery later this year and had to quit b/c of that and here I am smoking. I hope this time I will have the strength to not pick the habit back up.
Well as far as this week goes, I haven't done good at all. Eating as been so-so. I didn't work out from Saturday till today b/c I felt so bad I didn't even want to get out of the bed. We are expecting some possible snow the next few days and my head is letting me know something is coming, but I am going to try to push forward and keep working out some. Tomorrow is my weekly weigh-in, so wish me luck. I just keep thinking one day at a time and I can do this. emoticon

    I wish I could offer help with the smoking issue. I was never much of one, so I didn't have difficulty stopping, but my friends who have quit never seem to lose the taste regardless of how long it's been since they had one. I wish you the best on that front and understand that it's an extremely difficult addiction to kick.

    As far as working out goes, try not to beat yourself up too much, as all it does is lower your morale. Sometimes all I'm able to do is walk to the mailbox or do a bit of housework, but I feel like every little bit counts. I'm also trying to get into yoga because, although I have some difficulties with balance and orientation due to my migraine, it's low impact but, again, makes me feel like I've done something.

    I can't wait for it to warm up a bit here so that I can swim again. That's my favorite exercise and, if I do it at night, it doesn't aggravate my head nearly as much as other, more strenuous activities, but it's still a great workout.

    Today love yourself. No don't just think you love yourself, really love yourself. Fall in love with yourself. Know how wonderful you are. How human you are. If you fall, get up quickly. I bet if you love something and really wanted it, what would you do to get it? Find that person inside you that you really love and take care of her. You are just worth more than you think. This is your young life, Live it on your terms. Live with passion. Fight, fight for yourself! Find the joy in every ordinary day. Distract yourself from your defeat demon. I am cheering for you. emoticon

    Just think, you work so hard to stay healthy in terms of eating right, but spoil it by smoking. Try one day at a time without smoking. After a while, you will do it! :)
