Good deficit yesterday. I was able to start packing and got two loads of laundry done and put away so that was a big accomplishment for a Monday night.
I am a smoker. I haven't talked about it here in a long time but I wanted to make a list like my "Reasons to lose Weight" list. I am not a heavy smoker. I usually smoke about 5-7 per day. I also only do it at night unless I am super stressed at work which only happens once in a blue moon. I smoke the most when I am drinking and on the weekends. When I travel with my mom, I don't smoke. That means I will be 8 days without a cigarette. In the past, I would come home and resume smoking right away... This time I am entertaining the the thought of quitting... here are the reasons why:
- To be healthier
- Have better lung capacity
- Save money - $1,200 per year! (approx.)
- Whiter teeth
- Fresher breath
- Food tasting better
- Not smelling like an ashtray
- To add years to my life
- Not being socially ostracized for smoking (banned in parks, beaches, downtown area)
- To avoid deadly diseases like Cancer and Emphysema
Those are some pretty darn good reasons. I have never seriously thought of quitting before so this is a good sign. I also have some friends that recently quit and they were heavy smokers. My best friend Debby and Larry want to quit too so there would be support there. Thoughts to ponder for sure. Until next time...
