I made it to day 4 of not smoking. I think yesterday was the hardest day of all. The cravings were horrible and I had them most of the day. So I tried to keep myself busy most of the day. And when I ran out of things to do I took a nap. I knew yesterday was going to be a challenge because I really didn't have anything planned. But I did it and I am proud of myself.
Most people worry about gaining weight when they quit smoking and that was a concern for me, but would you believe I have lost weight? In the last week I have lost 4 pounds. For some reason I really don't have an appetite and I know all the walks I am taking Sophie on is helping me. I think it really helped that I did research on how to deal with the cravings and what happens with your body chemistry when you quit smoking. I felt so much more prepared this time.
Sophie has been eating the same dog food for the last 8 years and I finally admitted that she is getting older (she will be 10 in June) and switched her food to Senior. And I also switched her to Nature's Choice dog food. Well, Sophie is not happy and has hardly eaten since yesterday. I even mixed the new and old food, but she still refuses to eat. It was sad finally admitting that Sophie is getting old. I wish I could figure out how to make her live forever because I can not imagine my life without her.
I hope everyone has a wonderful Sunday. I am off to spend the day with friends; one of which is wanting to set up her own blog. More on that later.
