Climbing the Walls & Raspberry White Chocolate Cheesecake

Have you ever tried to quit smoking?

I quit, about 9 years ago last month. Yeah. I started again about 8 months ago. Don't ask me to do all the math, I don't care that much.

Anyway, know how yesterday I said I was going to go running? I decided a bit later, that I'd do a mile. One mile. One simple, easy, fabulous, did I mention easy? mile. And it sucked. I mean, it really sucked. My lungs hurt, my stomach hurt, my legs hurt, my head hurt. I used to do this? Seriously? I stopped at 1.03 miles. In almost 12 minutes. I was distraught, all through my coughing spell when I stopped.

So, I decided, of course, to quit smoking, right? It's been since 9:30 this morning since I had one. That's, like, 8 whole hours and 16 minutes ago! I've already eaten everything in sight. And watched enough Bates Motel and Dexter to give me ideas I wouldn't normally consider. That is, until quitting smoking.

Fo sho.

I went to Olive Garden for lunch, and ate Raspberry White Chocolate Cheesecake. I don't eat these things, normally. They bring guilt, and pounds, and a bigger ass. (I'm not saying here 'don't eat cake', remember, I just quit smoking and I'm hostile. And if I can't have cake, you can't have cake!)

But I did have cake. See?

And it was beautiful.

In other news, remember the Runner's Savings Account? That year's over. Where has the time gone? $569.25 was the grand total. I'm continuing it another year through 3/13/15.

And I guess I need to go run this evening, again.

Here's to sucking less than last time?

It'll get easier with time. Pain is just nature's way of telling you that you're still alive. You got this.
