updates!!

I updated the whole Health and Fitness section. The weigh-in pages are updated, and the about me page has been updated with stats as well. That section is so important to me and aside from the blog is the main content of my site. I also added the Beauty Reviews to that section as well. Let me know what you think!

The bronchitis is almost gone, thank God. I’ve been resting up and taking care of myself which is something that I need to work on. Whenever I push myself too hard I end up getting sick. I still have a nasty cough and I’m a little stuffy (ears/nose), but I’m feeling a lot better. The cough always sticks around for a while anyway.

I’ve also cut back considerably with my smoking which I think comes from being sick, but it’s been really great. If I can cut back that’s the first step for me. I’m not quitting but I’m starting to walk down that road. I’m looking to see if there’s a smoker support group at the hospital where my Dad works. Support groups seem to be the best way for me to achieve something as I’ve seen from being a Weight Watcher member for over a year now. I need to be accountable for what I do and I need to be surrounded with people who are doing the same thing I’m doing. Although Chantix did work for my Mom I’d prefer not to use any medications of nicotine supplements. That’s just a personal belief.

Tonight is my first night at The Space and I’m amped. I’ve been going there for so long, so working there once a week will be fun. There’s 6 bands playing tonight and I know it’s going to be super busy. It’s a pop-punk show so there’s going to be tons of middle and high schoolers, haha. Hope everyone has a great weekend!

  1. I’m glad to hear you’re feeling better. ^_____^ & good luck cutting back on smoking. I’ve never smoked but I know people that do/have and it’s definitely hard for them to quit. A support group sounds like a good way to help.

    I’ve been practicing my speech to myself while driving in the car, haha~ I need to get a timer and time it, too. I stumble over my words and what I want to say since I’m not good at improvising. We’re not allowed to memorize any speeches, ughhh~

  2. Glad to hear you are feeling better.
    I quit smoking cold turkey over the summer, it worked for a while, I would have a few here and there, but recently I’ve been starting again. Its mainly stress, but the good thing is, I don’t have the urge to smoke all the time like before. Good luck babe! Have fun at work.

  3. I love how you disclaim, “I am not quitting”, probably so you don’t get tons of comments about it. I think moderation is truly key. Smoking less is better than not smoking at all, better than fiending if you don’t have a cig for a couple hours. My boyfriend smokes regularly and I have lots of friends who chain-smoke. I think smoking is relaxing and even sexy, but it’s sad to watch people be completely controlled by it.

    I’m off to check out your health & fitness page now! I need to add to mine. I went through it yesterday and touched it up… I have no idea how to arrange my “Weight Loss Tips”. Some are about food and some about working out, but I realized that some are sort of both, so I don’t want to split them that way. But I’m scared no one will read them if they are just a huge list. Perhaps adding some photos to go with a few of the tips, just to break up the page? Any thoughts?

    By the way, congrats on your weight loss. Weight Watchers must be working great for you, because when I started reading your blog I weighed less than you and now YOU weigh less than me! I guess that says something for my motivation as well. :/

  4. I’m so glad you’re feeling better finally!

    Good luck with less smoking :) Sam smokes too, so even though I smoke a lot less than I used to, it’s just hard when you’re around other people that have no desire to try quitting. But you have a great idea about the support group thing!

  5. First off, good luck on your first night at The Space :) I’m really rooting for you! Though, I doubt you need it, because I’m sure you’ll do an excellent job!

    I’m very glad to hear the Bronchitis is going away! I’m surprised it isn’t lasting as long as I have heard it last, which is definitely a good thing :) I’m sure you’ll be on track in no time!

    Smoking no doubt adds to an illness. Todd’s dad had fluid in his lungs and ended up in the hospital and he was warned to quit smoking, because that was the reason it made it much worse. Of course, the whole “life changing experience” last 3 days and then he was back to smoking again. I just hope you’re able to head down that rout soon :) I think the group meeting at the hospital would be a great idea! Hopefully they have one available for you :)

  6. Good luck on your first night, sure you’ll have fun.

    Glad that your feel better, and that you are going to try and, well, let’s say “cut down” on smoking. I’m sure it won’t be easy.

  7. Ive just started taking up smoking, its such a bad habit but I think people have a even more bad habit of making you feel worse for smoking. But good luck with finding a support group.

  8. I am glad that your bronchitis is nearly gone, and that you are feeling better. I think that cutting back on cigarettes before cutting them out completely is a good way to do it. Going cold turkey isn’t going to work for everyone.

  9. I guess the best way to quit smoking is to never start in the first place, haha. But, I think support groups are good too. Because then it’s like you’re not just letting yourself down, but everyone else if you mess up. Good luck with it!
