I’m never quitting smoking again.
16 days into it and Quitter’s Flu is in full effect. After 30 minutes of arm/shoulder/chest/burpee circuits and a 2 mile run at the gym, I’m pretty sure I hacked up enough crap for nine people. Still, I can run faster and farther than ever before, and there’s already a marked difference in resting heart rate and cardiac response during workouts. Removal of a fist full of inhaled stimulants is leaving me feeling pretty tired, but that’s temporary and I’m not forgetting it.
That said, I’m spending the month of January focusing on fitness benefits of quitting and ignoring pretty much everything else. While I’m obviously still eyeballing diet and exercising (harder than before), I’m not going to weigh in or shift back focus to anything weight related until I’m past this initial month.
