This week will be 4 months since I quit smoking! 4 MONTHS…I never thought I would say that and be this happy! I went to the gym tonight and got on the eliptical thinking that I’d only stay on for about 30 minutes or so because usually by that time I’m SO ready to be done…45 minutes later I was still going at it! I stopped at that point because I really wanted to fit some weights in before I left and I wasn’t sure how long you’re really supposed to be on them anyway. But the best part of my whole gym experience tonight was that I was on my machine sweating away and I could BREATHE–for a while I didn’t really think that it was possoble for me to be active and not have to pause constantly to gasp for air. I didn’t have to stop once to catch my breath and I feel AMAZING right now! 🙂
I think the gym has finally made me realize that I will never pick up a cigarette again…I feel way too good without them!
