I've known for quite a while now that smoking was making my current medical issues worse. So last Wednesday I cut back from 1& 1/2 packs of cigarettes a day to 5 cigarettes a day. It is not , shall I say, pleasant. I'm not using the patch or anything or chanting. It's pure willpower. Some days I have 1 and some days (very few) I have 10. But I never give up. So far I've had more good to great days then bad.
This was my a-ha moment! I could totally apply this to losing weight and becoming healthy! I know this is what Spark has been saying all along but it finally made sense and came altogether for me!
I was doing fine till around 3 pm Saturday then I got hit with the lovely head and chest cold that Shawn gave me. I slept on and off Sunday and basically all day Monday. With the kuous and cold wipes me out. Today hasn't been much better. I was going to go back home at lunch but I was too tired. Now I'm thinking I'll just stay the night. I just feel like 50 miles of bad road. I hope everyone else had a wonderful Labor Day Weekend~~
I had a blast at Cedar Point yesterday! I rode so many roller coasters, the Sky Hawk, and Max Air! Unfortunately it was super and hot !!! I walked for almost 6.5 hrs with very little down time except for ride times, and 2 45 min lines. Lots of exercise! I even ate decent! Not great, but decent for being at an amusement park. lots and lots of water! Feeling very sore today *ouch* but it was totally worth it! Hope everyone has a very happy week!
I don't know what is going on with me. All I want to do is eat and be lazy. I have been sleeping horribly. in general about 5 hours a night and that's with my night meds. NOTHING is working. I'm so tired all i want to do is eat and nothing else. I have gained so much weight in a short period of time. i have to get back on track but i'm having trouble with the the "all-or-nothiong" mentality. Today i woke up at 4 am. I was too hot too sleep.
The only good news today is i saw my neurologist and I'm getting Botox Sept 4th! then maybe i'll be able to get back on track with exercisesince i won't be hiding in the dark.
PLEASE help motivate me! I need encouragement! and a smack upside the head!
My sinus unfection is going away and with it the horrible headaches and migraines. This weekend was GREAT! I was able to go out and do stuff with Shawn everyday and according to my fitbit I walked over 5000 steps on Friday and won over $100 at the casino!! So happy!!
Today I feel really motivated to get my to do list done. I'm going to start back up on my Slim in 6 workout from Beach Body, it's low impact but harder than my other workouts. I have lots of healthy meals planned. I also am going to do a great deal of cleaning, laundry, etc. With breaks so I don't get burned out, plus yoga and stretching :)
