Hi Guys…it’s been a while but I have a couple of little updates for you…
I saw the Doc last week about my back and after some pondering we think the problem may actually be with my hips, so he has referred me for an x-ray…finally!! Just need to wait for the date to come through. The pain is starting to calm down a bit now and I am not screaming my house down when trying to get out of bed so I was going to try to run today but we have had thunderstorms and I have no wish what so ever to be out in that. Frankly I am fed up with feeling like crap and want to avoid yet another cold…so I’ll try for tomorrow.
On to the smoking…well the lack of it. I have not smoked for 36 days so far. I am still feeling good! I am trying really hard not to eat everything in the house instead, especially as I am doing no exercise at the moment. I have been moved on to the ‘step 2’ patches which are 15mg (the old ones were 20mg).
Since I went down to the smaller patch, I have felt the craving a little more but I have no way of telling if that is the smaller dose of nicotine or stress (the last couple of weeks have been a bit stressy here) but I have resisted the urge by using the inhalator.
I have now reached my fundraising target for the 5K Fun Run I am doing for Hope House. I am so happy about this. A few bloggers have sponsored me anonymously so thank you so much (you guys know who you are!). The fundraising will continue until I have done the run in September so don’t worry if you haven’t managed to sponsor me yet…There’s still plenty of time!
See you soon!
