      Ahhh. 9th day without a cigarette. My lungs have been going haywire ever since I quit...which I know is normal. The coughing, the sore throat, the stuffed up nose, the slight headaches, etc. I know its not a cold because I just got over one about 2 weeks ago...I know its the aftermath of quitting and my lungs trying to heal themselves and purge the 12 years of poison...and while I hate "cold symptoms" this is really the best thing thats ever happened to me.
      You can show me a photo of a black lung 100x a day, it won't phase me...hell, half my family has died of cancer (smokers.) and it didn't phase me...but when *I* spend a full week coughing up DISGUSTING things THIS phases me. Its true that you never really think about things until it happens to you. I'm not stupid..well, maybe im stupid for smoking for 12 years..let me rephrase that - I'm not ignorant - i know what smoking does, i know it kills you..but until you really see what its done to YOUR insides (not the guy next door, or even your family member - YOU) it doesnt really set in what you've done to yourself. If I ever pick up another cigarette THIS is what I'm going to think about...the shit that I spit out this week. I know I know, TMI but just the fucking truth. Just horrifying.

      I would love to be the kind of anomaly that quits smoking and continues to lose weight but I'm not sure that will happen. I am striving for it though.

      Today:
      1. Eat lots of animals, insects and plants.
      B - 3 eggs scrambled and 4 left over really thin strips of steak
      L - no lunch
      D - 1 pork chop and a small salad with olive oil as dressing.
      S - None yet but I will probably make some kale chips later.
      2 cups of coffee with HC.

      2. Move around a lot at a slow pace.
      8+ hours of fast paced retail.

      3. Lift heavy things.
      I did P90X Shoulders/Chest today - mostly lifting heavy for shoulder work and a shit ton of push ups - good lord there are a lot of push ups in this workout. It still makes me wanna do dirty things to Tony Horton when he does those airborne ones. fuck.

      4. Run really fast every once in a while.
      I did that two days ago...I still have a few days until I'm do another sprinting session

      5. Get lots of sleep.
      yea, about 7-8 hours.

      6. Play.
      I did some leisurely sprinting with the doggie at the park today...we always have fun!

      7. Get some sunlight every day.
      meh, not today...I'm really over this heat right now..I'm alittle worried how hot august is going to be

      8. Avoid trauma.
      Always!

      9. Avoid poisonous things.
      Day 9 of no poison.

      10. Use your mind.
      I learned how to actually spell anomaly..I always thought it was amonoly. thank you google.

          Hey, you are like my weight loss twin haha...155-165lb has been the bane of my existence for 3 years. This is the first time I broke through that 155lbs mark..you can do it too! keep PB-ing!

          Definitely post photos! I love seeing them..I think more people should!!

          Well, right now I use the jumping with the negative down (jump up into it and slowly lower) however, I'm going to buy a resistance band and try that method (wrap the band around the bar and put one leg through it to hold some of your weight while you pull up) because more people seem to have better progress them the jumping method. I can't wait for that day to come lol

          And yes you can, I think a few people use the format I do...Cillakat is the one I noticed using it so I stole it from her

              I've been taking vit c daily for years however, I'm really ignorant with supplements...what dosage do you recommend daily?

                i would just eat foods loaded with vit c like bell peppers,broccoli etc. you could try taking a few hundred mg. per day. take the buffered if you have a sensitive tummy;-)

                  That is exactly me, and were both red heads too, ha ha. Though I am way older than you. Way to go breaking 155!!! . I actually got down to 152 earlier this year and I have no idea how I got back up gto 165. Dang.

                  Thanks for the resistance band info for pullups. I should know this, but I didn't. I will have to put my bar up and give it a try.

                      Yay more twins! haha I can't wait to be 150lbs..I know its not about a destination or a scale weight but I still can't wait to see that number. I only found out about the resistance band pull up method from someone on this forum like 2 months ago..I thought I as doomed to do assisted pull-ups with a chair forever (I hate the chair method, its uncomfortable for me)

                      What type of dog is that?? shepard?

                        I feel so officially Primal...I bought Kerrygold butter last night for the first time!

                        Today was pretty uneventful. My day off - went to the park at like 5am with Ronin (the doggie)...did some leisurely sprinting and tug of war with him...then took him for a half hour walk. Came home, fell back to sleep until 11am. Mopped my floors..good lord they were disgusting (like hands and knees type mopping..I think that counts for exercise as well.). Watched Persons Unknown on Hulu (this show started off kinda ok, now it's retarded.) Still battling a sore throat and slight headache but trying to take it like a champ.

                        I have decided to not weigh myself until August 1st. I had a every every bad weekend 2 weekends ago and I just can't face the scale..it's probably better I don't...I went right back to my PB routine that monday but still I think I just need to forget about the scale numbers right now and just focus on eating right and working out.

                        Today:
                        1. Eat lots of animals, insects and plants.
                        B - 1 egg scrambled w/ 1 tablespoon of kerry gold butter - I wasn't even hungry I just really couldn't resist trying it. It was just as heavenly as everyone says - it tasted really...um...real and fresh. glorious.
                        L - no lunch
                        D - It was sort of a plethra of cold style goodness - a BAS w/ EVOO, some canned tuna w/ avocado mixed in (as an alternative to mayo - thanks to Chaohinon for the idea) and 2 hard boiled eggs. It was delicious.
                        S - 3 cups of coffee with HC (I think I need to switch over to decaf...I'm one of those people that drinks coffee for the taste, no other reason..I'm probably never giving it up, so I think the added caffeine is pointless for me.)

                        2. Move around a lot at a slow pace.
                        Half an hour walk in the park this morning...I may do a 4 miler later tonight. Yes, I will do a 4 miler

                        3. Lift heavy things.
                        My chest and tris are super sore from yesterdays workout, so a big no on the lifting heavy today.

                        4. Run really fast every once in a while.
                        Tabata sprints probably tomorrow or the next day..not today.

                        5. Get lots of sleep.
                        8 hours

                        6. Play.
                        leisurely sprinting/tug of war with the doggie at the park..it's always play time when you have a border collie

                        7. Get some sunlight every day.
                        Laid in the sun for 20 minutes early this morning. I'm just not in the mood for it lately.

                        8. Avoid trauma.
                        Always!

                        9. Avoid poisonous things.
                        Day 10 of no poison.

                        10. Use your mind.
                        Today I decided to turn my brain off for a while. Its been non stop the last few days.

                            Yeah, SheGlows...........are you are glowing with success.....kudos to you for 10 days now? You may want to take some NAC (500 mg. daily) to help with the detox issues and a complex B for your withdrawels.
                            Glad to see your journal, it will encourage me to make one soon.
                            Have you thought about taking your measurments instead of getting on the scale? It has helped me a lot.I do it once a month, but I admit that I do get on the scale every week not since I am so new to this way of eating. You are such an inspiration! Keep it up girl....

                                Im starting to feel a little better again, thank you for your suggestions! I'm gonna go vit shopping this weekend!

                                I used to take my measurements all the time..I should probably start doing that again instead..thanks for the reminder...I think I'll do that tomorrow and keep a record of that weekly instead of the scale.

                                I love reading peoples journals, you should definitely make one!
