A New Start

Thursday, December 29, 2011

Well, I have not stuck to a diet through the holiday. Nor have I been doing any exercise. I have been so busy with making Christmas gifts and traveling around I have not had time to think about me. All gifts this season were handmade except one. Just so you know there were about 15 children and adults I made gifts for. At this point and time I am so glad that the holiday is over even though I had such a blast. We had to go and hour and half down south one day and the next day two and half hours up north. Also our own Christmas here at home. Boy am I tired!! Believe it or not I still have two gifts to finish making and get delivered. Next year I am going to start in January. If I see something I know someone will like you can bet I am going to get it. And/or start making some gifts right now.

This will probably help me quit smoking. I started a program to quit about a week ago. It is pretty easy to follow. You set a quit date, start looking at and thinking about why you smoke, then start trying to break those habits. Like coffee and cigarettes, smoke after your coffee. Little things like that to break the habits. Then track when, where and why you smoke and understand the reasons and think about other things you can do besides smoke. Like maybe chew on cinnamon sticks or use a worry stone or beads. This is all leading up to being able to put down the cigarettes. You also have a quit coach and website to use and post to forums and talk to others who are in the same program. I think this program is going to work for me.

Now I need to start thinking about my diet and exercise program again. Maybe the exercise will help me keep from gaining weight while quitting smoking. I know I will get into better shape quitting smoking, gee, I might not huff and puff and be able to breath again. I am looking forward to turning over a new leaf and becoming a new me. I want to look good for my grand neices wedding.
