Yeah. It’s “4/20.” AND THERE’S A FREAKING BLIZZARD.
what the heck?
Anyway, I’ve been doing more reading on quitting smoking. It’s getting easier to accept that I need to stop. But I still get this awful feeling in my gut…BUT, it seems to be getting weaker as I continue doing my research. Yay.
I bought the PS3 Eye Move thinger. As I was buying it, I thought to myself, “I bet there’ll be a new game console released a month after I buy this.” Because that’s what happens to me. But that’s not the point. So, yeah, I played a few rounds of volleyball and table tennis.. and I played for so long that my arm started to hurt. =S IT’S NOT EVEN REAL. *lol*
Wow! It doesn’t feel like it’s been so many days since my last postings.
But it doesn’t mean I’ve given up ;)
I started hiking a few days ago. There’s a hilly trail about 5 minutes from my place that offers a great view. You can see most of the community, the river along the north side, the hills surrounding us, and of course Lac Simard from the halfway point. =P
Unfortunately, it only takes me about 20 minutes to go through the trail. It’s an intense 20 minutes, but lately I feel like I HAVE TO HAVE MORE WORKOUT TIME. And it’s definitely because I love to work out now!! I tots have luv fi de burn. Don’t ask me why I said it like that. =P
I am proud of how I made working out a priority yesterday. I power walked, jogged, skipped and did some leg exercises for a little over an hour. My new shoes are way cool. And whenever someone saw me huffing and puffing away, I kept telling myself, “If you look cute, you aren’t working hard enough!”
KRR. ARGH. (Yes, I watched Buffy!)
I was so upset after yesterday’s ‘town hall meeting.’ I felt like I was holding everything in; even my breath. The only thing that I wanted to do was walk. So I did. I like how my habits are changing. Last year, I would have gone out and chain-smoked. Instead of doing that, I walked a kilometer to cool off and breathe.
When your habits change, you’ve changed. To make sure I keep myself on the right track, I think about the consequences of bad habits and good habits.
So, yesterday, I was asked if I wanted to take minutes for a meeting. I was under the impression that it would be for a couple of hours and then I’d be able to go home and work out. I was looking forward to my workout; I had new shoes and my legs were finally NOT sore… Didn’t happen. 9 hours later - and I still don’t know why I stayed for so long - I’m finally going home - and it wasn’t because the meeting was over.
I was also asked if I wanted to do more minute-taking today and I said yes. I don’t know why. I felt like I wasted my whole day when I did so yestuhday.
So, I called the office back and told them I wouldn’t be working today. Boo yeah. I feel good. Now I can try out my new shoes.
