So I quit smoking!! I did start vaping so the urge to smoke isn't there. My nicotine level is so much lower than when I was smoking cigarettes. I am also not putting thousands of chemicals into my body.
I'm starting to physically feel better. I have noticed some flavors getting more vivid - like lemon. I love lemon. My favorite yogurt is Noosa Lemon I noticed yesterday how tart it actually was. I was surprised. I know people always say smoking dulls your taste buds and I honestly didn't think my tastebuds were bad because I would eat something and think this tastes soooooo good. Then I ate the yogurt yesterday and was floored.
I also love the fact I don't smell anymore, my perfume stays, my hair smells like shampoo, not stale smoke. I have noticed my skin looking better, healthier - less dry. It doesn't look as aged as it had started too. That right there is motivation on its own to stay a non-smoker. Yes, I know vanity for the win!
Now I just need to work on getting back to the gym. I haven't gained weight since I stopped smoking, in fact, I have lost some of the weight I gained when I was working at the salon. I, however, do want to get back to working out and living the best life I can. I want my muscle tone back!!
Here is to putting down a horrid habit and picking up the free weights!
