Day 7 ~♥

Posted by emilyt123078 Mar 9, 2018

What a gorgeous day! Went on a trail hike today with my hubs and my pups.  Early Spring is one of my favorite times of the year. I feel so much brighter today. Yesterday felt like one big confusing mess and even the weather was blustery and the lights flickered. Pretty much how I felt.  I have been so hungry that, it seems, I eat and an hour later, starving again.  Going to yoga again tonight. The contortions really seem to help.  I love yoga. It's been a source of motivation for me to quit smoking.  I would love to be a yoga instructor for those who are dealing with anxiety, depression and life issues. My mother passed away in 2009.  It's been a long journey through that and one I'm still on, but I feel part of that journey is getting myself back on track and leaving behind some old ideas.  I want to help others and I can't do that very well when I'm not taking that same advice for myself.  I think we all need to do that in our life.  Learning to care about ourselves in the process of quitting something that doesn't give a rats butt about us.  Wow, I've said a lot today.

Enjoy your Friday. Thanks for all of your support.  I send you the same.

Day 5

Posted by emilyt123078 Mar 7, 2018

Today is day 5.  IT CAN BE DONE!  Here's a few things I've learned in 5 days:

1. I lay down if I can.  One hour of sleep really energizes me.

2. Stretch, breathe and, if need be, drink a glass of ice cold water.

3. Pat myself on the back.  Geez, this isn't easy and I've gone 5 days without the cigarette calling the shots.

4. Eat when hungry then make a plan to walk it off.

5 Listen to inspiring music.

Gratitude day 3♥

Posted by emilyt123078 Mar 5, 2018

Venting part 1.  Felt tired. Felt anxious, yelled, almost cried.  

I have to be grateful today, because I went for a walk to the park with my husband and my dogs.  We had a great time even though I was obviously not feeling up to par. He took my hand in his because he noticed I was quiet.  I wasn't angry or upset, I wasn't feeling good and when I'm not, I'm quiet.  My husband tried to cheer me up and I did smile.  Those are the times when I feel this distance between how others manage life without smoking and how I don't.  Oh, I know that there will be a day that I can get on with my life without thinking about a cigarette, but I'm not there yet and that's okay.  People make bad choices even when they don't smoke, or never smoked.  I made a choice not to smoke today. That was a good choice.  I can say that I'm grateful for that.
