Today is Sunday, its 9.47 pm im munching on raspberries and cream. Had alot of one on one meetings in the office and had alot of trigger situations ...then I thought just one wont hurt and then a split seconds later NO why waste all the days and hours that I have got under my belt...and the thought quickly went away...its extraordinary the power and decietefulness of the nicotine drug...and its really a terrible drug.
The diet went really well today too
Bfst: smoked salmon with cream cheese
Lunch: 4 oz burger with a slice of cheese
Dinner: 8oz tenderloin steak small lettuce and tomato salad, mayo
snack: 3 macadamia nuts, 3 slices cheese, 3 slices parma ham, raspberries devonshire clotted cream

Went for a workout for 1 hr at 5.3o
followed by a body massage 1 hr

Feeling great had NO coffee today gradually weaned
off of it and am on Green Tea now.
Wow i feel really clean inside..
Keep going Jo, Im really impressed with you and you know you are my inspiration i will always be indebted to you , lets do this thing together..
when I feel weak I say the serenity prayer in my head...:

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,the courage to CHANGE THE THINGS I CAN.....and the wisdom to know the difference..
the courage to change the things i can and the

Coincidence! I've just finished a small bowl of raspberries and mascarpone cheese...

No real desire to smoke today - I can't believe it's almost been a week! Breakfast was 2 fried eggs, 3 rashers of bacon and a large mushroom - then I had a prawn salad at lunchtime, and I'm roasting beef for dinner right now. Will probably have it with salad - though Carl's asked me to make him a Yorkshire Pudding today - first time he'll have had one since February, so I could hardly say no...

Anyway - I've been pretty lenient with myself as far as food goes this week - I haven't worried about portion sizes, and I've had a few luxuries like low-cal chocolate drinks (at 5.5g carbs a time!). So, I'm not weighing until next weekend, and I'm going back to strict Atkins induction levels this coming week.

The exercise has been going quite well, 'cos I find it takes my mind off smoking (or the lack of!) - but again, I'm going to try to increase it this week, to a minimum of 40 mins/10 miles a day on either the exercise bike or - weather willing - the real bike. I am sick of this never-ending rain!

We're having friends round for a wine and cheese (or water and cheese in my case) evening on Tuesday (sounds posh, but it's just a couple of mates coming to watch DVDs and indulge in smelly cheese), and then we're being taken out for dinner on Weds. I'm going to remain on plan throughout! Thursday, we finally get to check out the local gym - Carl's agreed to come with me!

This week I've got to decorate our spare room - my Dad comes here for a week on June 6th, and it has to be finished by then - so will get extra exercise with all the humping, dumping and painting!

So - onward to the second week of being smoke free - I'm SO happy about it!

Jo

formula its actually OK bags more energy now.
