54 Days

Posted in Staying quit 11 Sep 2015

Yep 54 days and feeling fabulous lol.

So , as you may remember I ate my way through the first month , gained around 5 kilo.

Happy to report the loss of 1 kg and yesterday I purchased a second hand treadmill and walked 20 minutes. My intention is to slowly build up to 40 mins at least 4 times a week .

I walked at 4.5 ks an hour so got quite a sweat up but guess what.......... I could breathe !!!!

Keep going everyone we can do this!

    Lizzie, exercise is the best thing when you've stopped smoking. It makes you happy, your getting more oxygen and your sweating out all those toxins - it helps you to push forward in the right direction & gives you time to think good thoughts while your walking. The minute I stopped smoking I starting walking an hour each morning and I took my affirmations with me - I had a set of positive words and phrases I said over and over in my head and I created strategies of how to tackle the weeks ahead. It was very beneficial for me. Keep it up, your going great. My body restores itself to it's natural state of perfect health! I breath freely and deeply!

    Awwwww Lizzie How good are you going?you are seriously on fire. I love your posts ,you are going so well, feeling great and you have jumped on the treadmill with enthusiasm. 54 days is huge,as Feather said in one of my posts I don't think any of us thought we would get this far. I reckon some of it is due to all our new cyber friends cheering us on.Anyway congratulations you have done really well. Xxx

    Thanks girls for your encouragement and support , look forward to my walk each morning now and Nannette I totally agree with you ... Cyber friends have become so important to me , knowing we all face the same trials and triumphs ...comforting in some strange way xx

    Go pizzicato. 54 days is great. I also gained weight but it is starting to come off now. I must admit I do like chocolate and cakes and biscuits and wine................. Anyway my daughter tells me that fat people are harder to kidnap. Keep up the good work. We are all very proud of ourselves and each other. (it's even ok to be just a little big smug on this page).
