Amazing how a thread about fitness degraded into a discussion about smoking :!:

Giving up smoking is part of being fit.
And we don't have that many health-related threads anyway...

:3 *nods, my path these past months to becoming healthy was.
1. quit facebook. (i spent far too much time, plus facebook caught on to my divine plan of taking over.)
2. study health foods as much as possible, when good and scared of various things you install into your body. then you are ready for the next step.
3. impliment health foods into your daily intake of things you eat anf progressively increase the amount of healthy food. till you are simply eating healthy, and have no cravings for unhealthy things.
4. figure out and decide which habits you have are beneficial and detrimental. (i dislike using good and bad) (for me i quit caffiene well having way less. not daily though. having less sugar, having more water. quit cigarettes.) it has been eight days since my last one and i can smell blood again. :D like before i smoked...
-_- i am fae. not a vampire sheesh.


...but now i get frantic and walk a bunch... which i think this comes from a pre-cigerette habit, for when i got stressed...

:O the hardest part of quiting is now really the firyt few days. it is being around a bunch of smokers while waiting for the next round at a mtg prerelease. :3

When I want to not smoke I play a game ony phone or laptop. This usually works. The problem is, it sometimes doesn't.

On a completely different note, I'm trying to lose a bit of weight so I got back into skipping rope. Hopefully it gets easier; right now 5 minutes is killing me!

It does get easier and there's other things you can do. You could find ways of incorporating your workout into your daily tasks. Such as walking to the grocery store and using the groceries as weights while walking back for a full body workout. Take the stairs in lieu of the elevator. Etc.

Oh, walking is never a problem. I walk 6km per day, round trip, to and from work. My work also requires a lot of walking. I used to track my steps daily and was averaging between 18k and 20k. My problem is that I'm getting older, developing love handles, and am nursing an injury which hasn't allowed me to do my usual training. Sooooooo... I've been getting a bit sluggish. Anyway, the skipping is getting better. Next week I'll move up to six minutes each day. And add some strength training of some sort. Maybe kettlebells.

Wonderful job on the quitting smoking! Apparently the first week us meant to be the hardest as all the toxins are leaving your body.

As for getting frantic and walking a bunch not such a bad thing. Helpful for getting fit.
My nervous habit is rubbing the vein in the side of my neck. Nearly rubbed my skin raw a fair few times :lol:

Gotta say love kettlebells!! About 6years ago I did a exclusive bout of train with the guy who introduced kettlebells to NZ Dean Jolly was his name awesome guy bit brain fried from to much wacky tobaccy but really knew his stuff.

Getting older has its benefits for training tho. We are wiser :D

Kettlebells have been my go to for a few years now. 10 minutes of swings with a 25kg bell, alternating hands, is a hell of a workout. Add to that some get-ups and you've pretty much taken care of your entire body. And it's funny you should say that we train wiser as we get older. I got into kettlebells for that exact reason: a more comprehensive workout within a shorter period of time.

My kettlebell teacher is just a font of knowledge and understanding. He's really pushing the workout at the Salle since it's such a good all round workout.
