 I remained sore throughout the entire weekend! My legs, particularly inner thigh, screamed! Woohoo! New muscle! Saturday I did my food prep, and Sunday we drove out to CA to pick up the girls, I'm so glad they're home! :-) This morning I hit the gym and did cardio. Treadmill! Yay! So far, so good! My back is feeling fine, and the new shoes & inserts really helped my knees. Love my new shoes! I'm trying out a new morning routine... I was at the gym by 6:45, home and eating breakfast by 7:30, then off to ready for the day. Usually, I sit on the back patio and read, chill, whatever until it's time to prep for the day.

Why the new routine? Distraction. Yep, I'm quitting smoking all over again. This time, I've decided to approach it the same way I did my lifestyle change; with more of a gradual, baby steps style.  I'm hoping to have the same kind of lasting success that I had with food. Week 1: I can smoke in the mornings with Bill (our coffee, chill & wake up time), I can smoke in the evenings with Bill (our end of the day routine), and I can have ONE cigarette during the day. ONE. At the end of this week, I will revise for the second week.  The best part is that Bill is doing this with me! Yay!

Food today is a little light considering my activity level, so I may have to boost it up a bit as the day rolls on. I plan to head back to the gym tonight for legs/lower body.
