Carly its SO funny that you posted this. My best friend and I just decided that we were going to quit smoking (more for me as she 98% quit already) and start running.

 

I've never been able to run in my life between smoking, being out of shape, etc so it will be a great challenge and possible accomplishment for me. I can't even run for the train without getting out of breath! haha. So your 5 minutes is great work Trisha!!!

 

So I was googling and printed out this same plan just the other day. I unfortunately decided to take a nice fall down the stairs the next day though (trying not to take it as an omen LOL) so my foot is all bruised... but I plan to start next weekend or so when it's healed up.

 

Let me know how it goes when you start! I was wondering though- how are u going to time things? I need to get like a digital watch or stop watch or somethinghuh.gif

I'm not sure about the timing thing. We are going to start it tonight and I figured Matt would either have a timer watch, or my iphone would.

 

Oh and today is 3 weeks since Matt had a cigarette!!!

Yeah i feel like constantly checking a watch would be distracting so I wasn't sure! I'll prob just pick up a cheap digital one at walmart or something...

 

YAYYY for Matt!! Did he use anything or just good ol willpower?

Just willpower! He said that he went to visit an old friend that's a few years older and he looked OLD. And he smokes alot, so Matt said that he threw his cigs away when he left his house.

Thats GREAT! Good for him!! Tell him to send some my way because I embarassingly have none smile41.gif

 

I'm hoping even starting the running will make me want to quit more if I don't before hand. I'm really excited about it and so glad you're doing it too so we can compare notes! Maybe one day we can even sign up for a 5k together since we're close!!!

Thanks girls, I'll pass along the + feedback! I've been trying to make sure I tell him I am proud of him w/o appearing to harp on it b/c I don't want it to turn into something he thinks I "nag" (HATE THAT WORD!) him about, but I also want him to know how happy I am he is doing it!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
