04-30-14 – Wednesday – Vape Day #11

Vaping is going extremely well. Another day with no problems to report. Winning! One of the things I noticed this morning is that I am no longer checking my pocket to see if I have my cigarettes with me. This is a habit that I practiced for many years. Rather than a good feeling, it thinks it feels more like a positive change and I welcome it with open arms. Many of the trigger’s and habits have simply been replaced with vaping, so my minds has accepted those changes too very quietly. I remember try to quit either cold turkey or with other methods and my mind screaming at me during those triggers. I can best describe this transition as, “comfortable”.

Sugar came in again over 100. Today I start the new diet by changing breakfast to oatmeal and berries. My weight came in at 174.4, slightly under yesterday. I believe I have reached a point where my calorie burn is matching my calorie intake. To continue the fat burning process I must either reduce the calories, or burn more. Or just be happy with my progress so far and keep it in balance. I will take a little time to think about the direction I want to go.

    Tracking progress is the best way to stay organized and to know how
    much time you will need to get ready for the baby shower.
    They keep the stink contain and are super convenient.
    Once you have the ultrasound done and find out whether you
    are having a baby boy or baby girl you can have the doctor seal the results for you to
    learn what it is with your guests or just surprise your
    guests.
