Hello Big Change, 30 days of not smoking, weight loss and disappointment

Oh yeah. 30 days without a SINGLE cigarette. Not one. Nada. and 518 more ways to say no. In case you need to learn how to speak….Swahili. You know for those awkward moments when you have nothing else to say while involved in a conversation with someone who you have no idea who they are desperatly […]

Rolling into 3 weeks and chatty maria still going strong

I hadn’t realized that it’s been a full week since I updated. Actually, I didn’t even know what day it was until I looked at a calender. Hazard of being self-employed. Days run together and you lose track of time. Wasn’t it like Christmas yesterday? Not smoking and tracking these workouts has made these last […]

Past 2 weeks and still going strong

My beloved Grandparents sent me and my husband emails asking if I had fallen off the nosmokin-workout-every-day wagon. Nope! Still going strong and just passed the 2 week mark for not smoking. It’s so nice not being a smelly stinky ashtray dependant on nicotine. And even nicer that I’m not in the garage now that winter […]

Getting smarter…not thinner

I don’t appear to be losing weight and I’m not getting any thinner but I do believe I am getting smarter. I learned yet another lesson. Trim thy toenails! Seriously. All of them. Not just the one that cut into your other toe and made you bleed and limp a little. Two nights ago I […]

Day 7, One full week and counting

I’ve made several observations since yesterday. In fact, I feel very enlightened. I do have ADD. I can prove it. Last night’s workout brought to me by the hateful treadmill. The hubby politely asked if I would mind if he played games worked out while I was downstairs. I said no I wouldn’t mind at all, that […]

Musing on the hazzards of not smoking…

Today is officially just over the 1 week mark for me and the hubby not smoking. I find myself just a teensy bit amazed. And slightly alarmed at what I consider the fallout from not smoking. Fallout #1: Opening the garage door to air the smell out and FORGETTING they are open. All 3 stalls. All […]

Day 5, Thursday

Today was a light day. A very light day. My legs and butt are sore. LOL so I went gentle today and used the wii. What made it light is the hubby wanted to see how it worked so he watched. The entire time. All….30….min. Not I minded much but I prefer to do this by myself. I […]

Day 4…getting easier

Yeah, right. Maybe not so much easier but perhaps a little more like getting not so clumsy. For Day 4, I did Yoga just as I said I was going to. Netflix has a wicked cool selection of workouts available. I picked the easiest one for today. Since I didn’t cripple myself yesterday with the […]

Getting an early start on the day = productivity!

Up at 7 am. That’s like a record for me. I stay up until about 2 am most nights and sleep until between 8 and 10 am. Being self employed do have its perks. So while I am rarely up that early, I enjoy how much more I seem to get done. For example, by 10 am I […]

Day 3….97 to go

That totally sounds like that annoying beer bottle song. See, now it’s in your head too. Day 3 complete! Having been insulted by my wii, beaten by batteries and dropped by my treadmill, I decided to fire up Netflix. Salsa Dancing? Nope, this old body does not move like that and I would spend all […]
