I am back in the world of blogging. I am a bit nervous about getting into this again, but I want to let you know what I am up to in my daily life. These days I am NOT SMOKING (yay!)...I have not smoked a single puff in many months and have not smoked habitually in moroe than two years. This has been an amazing feat and I am so glad I made the effort. My lungs feel great, my clothes smell great, I don't stay sick as long (and rarely get sick), and I am not spending money on those awful cigarettes. I AM excercising at least twice a week and it has been great. I am walking around the lake at the apartment complex I have been living at since last November (more on that later!). I am trying to walk 2-2.5 miles on my days off. I love walking outside and I am trying to get more time in before the weather changes. They have a very nice gym, so no excuses Alyssa...They even have yoga classes...more on that later. I can go Mondays and Wednesdays for yoga and walking Friday and Saturday. Think of the excercise!! How do I get motivated to work out more than Friday & Saturday?? I will have to contemplate that and come up with ideas beside weight loss. I AM starting to eat better. I have almost completely taken bread, pasta, and juice/regular soda out of my diet. I say almost because I have created five "exception" days a month to allow myself bread, pasta, or juice. Yesterday, going to Elitches was such an exception. I have lost 6 pounds this past month. So this is the beginning of better living for me and I am enjoying it. Any suggestions for better living? Let me know and drop me a line or a comment!! I will be writing lots more frequently about all the fun things I used to write about. I am just getting warmed up!!
