I brought a really nice pair of earrings today, I never treat myself and i really love them, so I have promised myself I will not wear them till I finally do quit smoking. I spoke with my hubby and he agrees NYE would be a great start. So from 12am that night I wont be touching one. I have placed this to myself as the first challenge for the year. Yeah I have said it plenty of times before I am going to quit and I really do mean it when I say it, but I have come to realise doing it and says it are completly different things. The girl at work who I have become close to is a smoker so when I dont have any she gives me a few, but the good thing about it is she is leaving so that tempation wont be there. I have also planned not to go out much with my friends or speak on the phone alot as thats when i smoke most. I have been thinking of some strategies which will help me and I have come up with
not wearing my nice new earrings till I stop
walk or run on the spot if I am craving one
dont go to the shop alone for a few weeks incase I give in
keep a diary on here so you can all, kick me if I have one.
I am determained this time because I can feel my chest getting really ucky, my breathing is different and I dont like it, infact when it comes down to it I dont like smoking and its a BAD HABIT which I know I am strong enough to STOP....
Also on NYD I will be starting my new eating and excerise plan. I have posted it before but wanted to write it down on here also. My plans are
to not make an actual kg number to get to goal, I am going to just work towards getting to 72kg again and take it from then
I am only weighing in on Sundays, and I will TRY not to jump on the scales through out the week
drink more water, starting at 1.5 liters a day and working towards 2 or more a day
start walking to work again, serioulsy how lazy am I, I live a 5 min walk away and I have been driving, plus start excerising 3 extra times during the week and work towards doing it 5 or more for 30 min at a time.
eat well, more fruit and vegies, multigrains etc
the most important one of all I think is STOP SMOKING.
I will try to come on and write down how I have gone every day and I will try better to also support you guys........
Good Luck for 2008
