    Thanks demuralist!

    I actually know exactly what is happening and have a game plan. I quit cold turkey and I can do this damn thing again. It is actually how I have been coping with some things, or procrastinating on coping.

    I am cleaning and organizing the house this weekend bc I have a ton of stuff coming up for the next few weeks and need to relieve any potential anxiety by being prepared. I also have taken off the entire week of Christmas and I need all the cleaning done, bc all I am doing is reading books and doing crafts and maybe doing small organization projects, but NO CLEANING, so it has to be done and kept up with so I can do what I want without guilt. That is the first part of the plan.

    I plan to smoke my last cigarette on December 8th. I have a dinner and intention night out with a women's group I am part of. We are having dinner and then going to the river to release our intentions for 2013. I am thinking of creating a little origami ship and smoking a cigarette, really enjoying everything about it. Then smoke a 2nd one, really noticing all the bad about it. Then lighting a cigarette and releasing it down the river, a funeral pyre is you will. It is not part of my intentions for 2013 so I will let it go.

      Hi Kymma - chiming in to say thank you for the "detox" bath recipe! It felt really good and I plan to include in my routine as often as possible. I'm thinking once a week is a really good idea!

      I think your plan to kick the habit is wonderful! Smoking is a nasty, unhealthy habit! I never started, thankfully. I had a friend in middle school that tried to get me to start, but I couldn't get passed the nasty taste of it - never got to the inhaling part!

      My vice - is rum/diet coke - or the occassional long island iced tea. I'm not giving them up -- but planning to severely cut down. If I could only get my husband on board it would be much easier.

      Anyway --- best of luck on your journey I'm looking forward to reading you've slayed the smoking dragon!

          It has been a few days since I've posted and I am doing great! After the gains of last week, upping fats helped kick that gain into a 5 pound loss, so I have lost a total of 12 pounds in 5 weeks.

          Not too shabby, and maybe the increased fat intake will help keep it moving off. If I keep up a pace of 2 pounds a week, I will be all set to meet my first goal.

          I found a strength building program that I am comfortable with and will begin next Monday when I return from my last travel days of the year. That should help with fat loss and insulin sensitivity. Why Women Should Lift Heavy Weights + a Beginner Workout - Nia Shanks

          I also found a cool key to making this woe more enjoyable. Eating sinful meals! After years of low fat, if I have things that seem sinful in the low fat world, it makes me chipper. An omelet with bacon and cream cheese, coffee with cream and butter, that sort of stuff just makes me feel way more devilish than any damn sugary treats which just induce guilt. And apparently it works, since it led to weight loss.

              I think I know what should be in the exercise section, but should wild bedroom antics or nude dancing in the street come first?

                  Neither. A dinner of sinful and beloved "aphrodisiacs," with a complete menu, recipes, and hints on what not to wear when serving (clothing optional, makes it extra primal.)
                  Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

                      Sounds like a great plan to me. Yay for eating sinful foods.

                        Since "nude" comes before "wild".... that might be a good place to start....

                          I am writing this from the skies (plane). I have been on a biz trip since Tuesday. Eating while out of town went great, stayed completely on track. I did have some vodka and clubs, 4 on Tues night, 3 last night. Not too bad. We also walked quite a bit.

                          I felt like all the mirrors in my hotel room showed me how much my body is changing. Thinking I need a new mirror in my lady room or somewhere so I can watch and enjoy the healing and reducing mynweightnprocess. What a weird feeling after avoiding mirrors. I will be interested to weigh tomorrow.

                          Enjoyed the trip. I am not worrying about the job situation. I am excited about Christmas this year. I am normally a grinch. But I am going to borrow a friend's fake Charlie brown tree, make some snowflakes out of color paper and hang from the ceiling and really enjoy the season.

                          Mood is good, The last few weeks have been so great in reflecting on how far my health and mental state have come. I also know next year will be awesome. I love being hopeful.

                          Energy comes and goes. Some moments I feel amazing, alert, and then I feel achy and exhausted at times. So I am going to track my blood sugar next week, start strength exercises and my yoga DVD and start seeing if I can turn the energy around.

                          Sorry I can't add any spice to the book idea right now, I am somewhat tired and my brain doesn't feel playful.

                            Well, I had a "binge." Which makes me laugh, because it was only a binge in terms of going over carbs and having a little sugar. I had 1/2 cup of cashews and 3 squares of Lindt 70% dark chocolate. I don't regret it. And I lost 0.6 while out of town. So a few carbs didn't harm me.

                              Careful, that is how I usually go down the dark path...I didn't gain from those carbs. Mind you I don't think you should regret or feel guilty about the cashews or chocolate, but for me that has been the start of many a slippery slope.

                                No, I won't be going down it! I am just glad I didn't pay for it. I am back on track, no more alcohol or cheats, even small ones, until Dec. 22 at my fave party of the year, where I will imbibe on vodka clubs, but not eat the snacks. This will be the first year where I refuse to hover the food table and be all fat kid with it.
