Day 10 - Still not smoking

Wednesday, August 14, 2013

I've got to admit it gets easier every day, but what seems to be getting harder is my motivation for working out. I'm tired for a couple hours every day after taking my morning and evening Chantix pill. The fatigue is usually accompanied by an upset stomach. I figure I have a minimum of two more weeks of taking the pill before I am "safe" to quit taking it and if those are my only side effects I should consider myself lucky.

I'm trying to get back on the work out/health eating road today. I'm taking a boot camp class this afternoon and made good choices for lunch and breakfast. I had some chocolate today too, but in my defense I NEEDED it. It's probably more accurate to say my coworkers needed me to have it. An all day planning session at work means a high level of stress coupled with people who are so "over it" after about two hours.

I'll report tomorrow how my evening went...going out to dinner with my boyfriend's family and my bestie. Not feeling as tired today, but I slept pretty well last night. That's another problem with being sleep deprived...I feel the need to eat for energy. I really need to stop doing that.

Until then...

    Thanks! Can't wait until I can say I'm on day 45. Yes, it is a journey. One I wish I hadn't started 18 years ago.

    I'm on day 45 myself - and I too have issues working out - but mainly due to scheduling/time constraints - I really need to look at my schedule and force workout time into it - at least half hour/day...

    WTG and Keep up the good work!!! You'll feel much better w/out the extra toxins in your body soon!
