Just wanted to blether a little.
As usual the brain was automatically giving the "I told you so" milarky about giving up smoking.
For the past 6 (nearly 7) weeks I have had coughing fits thorugh the day and night, sore throats and earaches and the latest a pain in the shoulder which is literally giving me a pain in the neck.
I have been careful with what I have been eating, infact I have drank more water and ate more fruit and veg than I did for the whole of last year, I have upped my fitness and run 3 times a week and circuit training twice a week and have not lost a pound in 3 weeks, not gone up admittedly but, thought with all the changes I would of done better.
Food is tasting good but it's always tasted good (hence the above paragraph) and my home made curry was too spicy this time. Same ingredients but the taste buds couldn't hack it.
The usual smoking cessation nurse was not there yesterday and the person in her place was a cowbag! Telling me off about the patches etc.,
And so what did I do???????
I skipped, not with rope, just the child like skipping as it's impossible to have a sad face whilst skipping.
My daughter and I skipped from the childminders to our house without stopping and you know what I thought???
I could not of done this 6 weeks ago without complaining to my 5 year old that Mummy is too tired to carry on!
There were a few puzzled faces in the street, and one old man joined in whilst walking his dog - but the walking stick got in the way and he nearly fell over, that amused me even more.
I know that's bad but it would of been a video camera moment!
So, I'm happy and smoke free
