01/23/15- Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal : Sunday

We talk a lot about clean eating and exercise and how making changes to move toward this lifestyle will show you more energy, better mental health, and improved health, but there is something that will sabotage all of those benefits.  Smoking.

I am not preaching to those of you that smoke from a point of judgement.  At one point in my life, out of 10 people in my family, 8 of them smoked.  One-by-one, most have quit.  My father was forced to quit after his stroke and tried many different avenues.  It took several attempts to find success.  My mother quit right away, though lung cancer is what finally took her from us, 20 years after she had quit.              http://www.cincinnati.md/kbviewer.aspx?query=quit smoking&s=1&hwid=ug5052

In the January issue of First for Women, they stare that smokers who use web-based quit-smoking programs are 50 percent more likely to succeed than those who go it alone (Archives of Internal Medicine).  Many people feel that these programs succeed due to the 24/7 support and practical advice that is offered.

Many people find relief from the cravings from patches which provide a steady yet down-stepping nicotine stream.  It can help your body overcome the addiction to nicotine. http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/quittingsmoking.html

To be sure it is a terribly difficult process.  Quit for you, and your family.  There are more great articles that you can access from the system checker box on the front page of the homepage.  Check them out.

 

 

Sunday- 01/23/01 Workout- 

 

 

 

P90X- Yoga (90 minutes) *  I actually completed the whole tape!!! O.M.G. I've never made it through the whole thing 1) because its a huge muscular challenge, and 2) I get bored after 60 minutes and set my mind on my 4 kids and if they are up yet, and what i have to do...Focus.  Its hard when doing something that isnt an cardio blast workout like biking, walking, stuff like that.  This is a 'life lesson' about finding calm and settling my mind
