Weekend Report

What a lovely weekend. My debilitating gym soreness abated. I worked out yesterday and had my massage this morning. I am feeling great. Tomorrow is my gym day and I am happy to be back on track.

My massage person says the increasing muscle definition in my legs, shoulders and back is obvious - it is so reinforcing to hear those kinds of things. I can tell when I carry heavy things up the stairs or look at my biceps that I am changing. This whole thing is a process. I am hooked - I kicked the nasty ciggie habit and have developed a weight lifting habit.

Soon it will be two years of not smoking - I can't imagine sucking that poison into me now. Yuck!

If anyone reading this is trying to quit smoking, please, please, please visit the best support website ever. Quitnet is free, available 24/7, and has every type of resource, including many types of bulletin boards and some of the nicest and most supportive people ever. It was a boon to me in the first year. I still drop by at times to check in.

I have had such an enjoyable couple of days. Went to the library, did my meditation, watched a movie on cable, cooked a little pot of beans and baked a pan of whole grain cornbread - just the everyday stuff that life is made of.

I am looking forward to a productive week. Hope your week ahead is wonderful. More soon.

  2. Congratulations on starting off the new year taking care of yourself in these ways. I need to get back into the gym routine myself and you've provided a fine example.

    I'm catching up today ... don't know how I fell 4 posts behind here, but I've read them all though I'm commenting but once because I'm meeting a friend for breakfast and need to get showered and dressed.
    Hugs and blessings,

    Good job on quiting smoking. I is a real hard theing to do . I know I stopped after 14 years. It has been about 8 or 9 years now. Wow I have lost count.

  4. I've been thinking about going back to the gym but haven't quite committed. Congratulations on two years of being smoke free.
