Looking forward to the walk today, wonder where we are going?

Hope everyone is feeling great today, I am.

No more nicotine,
only in a dream,
Lets go quit team,
get out there and scream
be gone from my life, you horrible

It is nice to smell fresh
and to smell clean,
Its like being in a dream,
so keep strong our quit team.

We are so happy and full of glee,
We have enough energy to climb a tree,
But the best thing of all we are FREE.

Keep it up team. xoxo

Welcome Spazza, you have made a great desicion to quit. Take it one day at a time and the 4ds which is delay, delay, take deep breaths, drink water, eat healther snacks, when your feeling better exercise can also help. Post before you smoke, and not one puff. Be strong Be determined you can do this!!!!!!

Another random blog

..sooo... I am having thoughts about running!! LOL no longer thoughts about smoking... but thoughts about running who would of thought? I am thinking about how much running I need to do to burn a kilo.. I know how many calories to burn a pound thats 3500 ... so roughly need to workout how much to burn a kilo and I am home and hosed. I am just super happy I am managing to run continously; been along time.. I was an awesome runner back in the day.. so I am now furiously wanting to get back into shape and start running my legs off. Then while I was in the bath thinking this grand scheme up.. I went hmm.. I am not thinking of smoking; which is what I used to think of. Even happier now that I am having better more healthier thoughts; completley random just had to blog. xx happy smokefree night everyone! xx

leaving day

this could be a bit long winded. after all my bi%%%ing about the manager and how awful she is i was surprised when i read the memo to the staff. she wrote after 8 wonderful years i am leaving the area. i am a valued staff member and will be missed. i am training my replacement who starts next week. my last day is 18th august but i told her i could work an extra week as i have lots of training with the new girl. she might also be taking over the food safety program which i currently run. there is lots to show her with that. personally i think she will have enough to learn without that as well. any way who ever does it i will help them as much as i can before i finish. oh and i had to see manager about the leaving and she said she was shocked when she got my letter. so now its looking like partner may move over at a later date. hope he does and my son wants him too as well. for now i am going and we will see what happens later.have a nice weekend

Hi trouty. Looks like everything is working out.. sounds like a really nice memo that was written about you; how sweet. Am so happy to hear that your partner will move over to be with you as well - how awesome is that?! Everything sounds like it is working out really well for you! xx take care for now xx

Good day today! Got a decent work out at aqua aerobics this morning then got the back of my baby dress finished and then went to a much needed yoga session! :D I'm hoping to now sleep well (unlike last night) lol

Profile image Genzo11 hours ago

after a good workout you'll sleep as a baby for sure!

Profile image Blondene11 hours ago

When I was pregnant I lacked alot of sleep. I used an additional pillow in bed; coz I suffered really bad heartburn especially in the last trimester. I tried the pillow inbetween the legs trick didn't really work; I just wanted to sleep on my tummy.. but that was not going to happen; I did think it was cute in the start getting woken up by baby; but in the end he was just too big for my tummy and needed to go! LOL.. all the joys of being pregnant; enjoy it while you can time just goes by soo fast!

Thanks Felix,
Thanks to everyone who congratulated me on my 100th day, and to everyone else too because your blogs have helped me get here. My next challenge is to lose a few kilos and give up my e-cig which I have been using at night quite a bit lately. I think I will concentrate on the kilos first, then the e-cig. I like to take baby steps (that's why my name is turtle) but at least
I am not smoking!!! I

Another exercise bunny on the way! Starting off slowly is a good way to do it.. you don't want to burn out or hurt yourself as that may put you off. Any exercise is good exercise; even walking the dog which is what I was doing for awhile. Just like stopping smoking the results will happen. Well done now on 102 days; much deserved!

Have a nice night everyone ... and NOPE

Profile image turtle12 hours ago

Hi Felix, yes I am in the same bowl as you. I have put on 5 kgs and not feeling to good about this although am more disciplined so have started a meal replacement program. I never thought I would go on a real diet because I don't believe in them. Eat in moderation, exercise and be happy I thought, but my eating in moderation is not working so I am now on celebrity slim to help me get the right balance. Will let you know how it goes.

Profile image Felix12 hours ago
