almost 24 hours smoke free

well, last night I either wanted a cigarette or a snack so badly by 9:00 that I just went to bed. Maybe it will be easier in a couple days.  It’s lunch time now and I can’t say I have a big appetite but my body is pissed it isn’t getting its regular nicotine fix. Totally sucks. Too bad smoking kills because I love it about as much as eating, maybe more because it doesn’t make me fat. hah. So, anyway, almost 24 hours smoke free, really only a few days left and I should be over it. Hopefully I can control my cravings for junk while I detox from the nicotine.

So, on the menu for today…

breakfast- pbj smoothie (slimfast 180, jelly 40, pb (1 1/2 tbsp 150-i went overboard with the peanut butter 😦  )=370

snack- 1 1/2 oranges 90 and a yogurt 100-190

lunch- slimfast 180

dinner- grilled chicken salad with croutons- 400

Dessert- hot tea and popcorn- 110

Total: 1250

This morning the stupid stupid scale went up from 216.8 to 217. Yesterday my calories were fine, under 1300 so I know there’s no way in the world I gained weight. It’s just a matter of patience. It could be womanly things, water retention, a number of things that could have caused the number to go up. I have to not let it deter me but it is very frustrating!!! How often do you weigh youself? Why do you think the scale goes up when  you should be losing? (I am not forgetting to log ANYTHING and have researched the actual correct calories I am eating) How do you handle the evil scale?


My coworkers just came to invite me to order from Chipotle with them. I’m not even tempted. I already had my breakfast, snacks, and lunch. I’m good. I want a cigarette still, but I’m good. No thanks. In 6 months you will see why!! Please let me be able to keep this up (and be smoke free) for the entire next 6 months (or for my lifetime)!! Temptation sucks.

One day, sometimes one minute, at a time! I will eat healthy and be smoke free- this is my body and I love me!! I deserve it 🙂

It’s like a little pain now or alot of pain later… for me and my loved ones… I gotta grow up and quit this smoking thing once and for all. At 4:20 I’ll be 24 hours. My hardest times are in the morning, at lunch, after work, and after dinner. After work probably being the hardest of them all to skip. BUT I KNOW I CAN DO THIS!

Here’s to defying the odds by quitting smoking and losing weight AT THE SAME TIME!!! I’m going to prove it can be done 🙂
