So Far So Good

If you've been reading this blog for at least a couple of weeks, you'll know that I discuss food pretty often, i.e. baking, cooking, healthy stuff. I also discuss my weight from time to time. Getting fitter and being healthy are two of the most important aspects of my life. I weigh myself on Wednesdays and was away last Wednesday so I did not. In the past 14 days I only gained 2.2 pounds. I was so stoked. Ten of those 14 days I was away on vacation denying myself nothing so imagine my surprise. It is true. Once you change your habits, your new habits are habit. I couldn't binge like I used to I am proud to say. If I'm giving off the impression that I'm super fat or anything, well, I'm all.

So yesterday I hit the gym with my new Nikes and had a blast. I beat my previous 5K time record by 4 seconds. I'm still too embarassed to list the time. (Doug, you'd be ashamed.) I hit up the hot tub to ease the tension in my neck and shoulders and hit the steam room to get all that New Years alcohol and all that holiday sodium out of my system. It was a good day. I'll spare you the details but went home and had an amazing supper too. I was in a gourmet mood.

I know this isn't a very interesting read, but it's what's on my mind. Starting off the New Year right. Since waking up January 1st until right now I have only had four cigarettes. I really think I'm serious about trying to kick this habit. I'm fighting off a sore throat and I'm really hoping it's not a cold but just my throat healing up a bit. This year is gonna be big and I know it, it's about time I felt really good about myself. Afterall, wouldn't that make every day just a bit better regardless of how the day goes.

Back to smoking, good thing I'm staying in Philly alone this weekend. No temptation. Mike smokes a whole lot. I really hope one day when he's ready he'll stop. I won't be a bitch about it, but he's really gotta try not to smoke a lot around me. A relationship between two smokers can get a little 'strange' when one beats the habit.

I'm excited to go back to the gym today. Maybe I'll take a class. I'm just excited for this new year. So far so good.

Just stopped by to say Hello. I've seen you over at JBI.

Crispy -Hmmmm... I think I'd have to steam for about a week to get rid of all the alcohol.

If you're going to kick the smoking habit, plan on gaining weight! ;)

Most people that I know who quit, put on 20-30 lbs.

It's a nervous thing I guess.

Neo, never! That's why I weigh myself every Wednesday. Everyone who is pretty heavy says something along the lines of, 'I don't know how it happened.' I love monitoring my weight so I have no excuses. It's the way to be. I'll quit and not gain. Watch! I did bite my thumb nail down today though.

But on the contrary, I don't think it's a nervous thing. I think it's an oral fixation thing. No jokes necessary. ;-)

Sky, Hello right back at ya! Thanks for stopping by.

Crispy -Ha! The weight diary! Hmmmm I can see the screen play now!

I'll bite my tongue on cracking the joke to the second half of your comment. ;)
