Day 20 woohooo

I have been feeling great! Working out a lot. Staying hydrated and eating much better! Why didn't I chose this lifestyle along time ago! Working out when I smoked felt like hell and discouraged me because I would get out of breath so quickly. Now I know I can push past it and be an example to others including my niece. Once she told me I shouldn't smoke and she's 4 yrs old! I felt embarrassed. I can use that as a motivation but I'm really doing this for myself! 21 days ago I had my last cigarette and it will stay my last forever. I really wish I could jam this thinking into my loved ones that smoke and they all say exactly what I said "I'm too stressed out in this point in my life to quit smoking" my thinking exactly. Once I read there's never a good time to quit. That's so true because no matter the stress was your relief was a cigarette. We all know this as ex smokers.

The day I quit smoking was the day I got laid off my job. Life happens and I finally realized I can't mask my problems anymore with something that slowly kills you. Tomorrow will be 21 days which means 3 complete weeks of quitting.

Congrats to everyone who has reached one more day of success for your body!!
