I have a confession

I have not share this before I guess I did not want to be judged or jinxes myself but here goes I quit smoking in July I know she smoked gross yuck I know but I did for twelve years I was more of closet smoker I didn't smoke in public never in front of my parents. You could just find me sneaking around outside somewhere smoking. Well I quit in July! Yea me! But with this quitting I did gain some weight one of the reasons I was scared to quit to start with...so over the last month I have really been trying to whip myself into shape with the help of one Miss Jillian Michaels

I will tell you she is not playing in ten days I have lost five pounds, 1/2 in from my arms, 3 ins. from my thighs, 2 1/2 ins. from my waist, 1 in. from my hips. Brinsley is doing it too I am so proud of her, we started level two last night its hard but we are sticking to it. I feel like I am in better shape now than I have been in for awhile. I highly recommend it but be prepared to be sore! I will keep everyone posted about the progress.

Hugs

Carrie

Good for you, Carrie! I know it is so hard to quit when you have been doing it for a long time. But it sounds like you're doing great! Maybe I need to meet Ms. Jillian, too! :)

Hey Carrie,

Great job on quitting smoking!!! I've heard it is sooo hard to do. Which is harder eating right/exercising or quit smoking?

I think I will have to go add that to my growing collection of workout DVD's. Now if I will get off my booty and pull one out...I need to stop talking about doing it and Just Do It!

Congrats on losing 5 + pounds that is AWESOME!

Ruth said...

Great job Carrie, I'm really impressed! I love your Easter banner too... thanks for leaving me my first comment!

Brandi said...

My hubby quit almost six years ago, I know how tough it is. You should be SO proud of yourself. Now, about this Jillian. I'm scared. Is this a diet exercise dvd, book, what? I need to get myself motivated to exercise more....

Robyn Beele said...

I am so glad you quit! That Jillian is no joke!!

Jessica said...

I've never been a smoker, but I've heard from many it's so hard to quit. Good for you!! That's awesome you're getting into shape too! I bet you feel like a million bucks!

YAY Carrie! Go girl!

Jillian is totally a bootie-kicker. I still haven't got out of level 1 - but I'm really terrible about sticking to it.

Rhonda said...

Oh my goodness!!!! I can not believe I revealed my secret blog...oops! I didn't realize I was on that one when I posted here earlier....hee hee

Thanks for the good luck! I definately need it!

Liz said...

Carrie,

Congrats on quitting smoking. That is wonderful! I have been looking for a good workout DVD. I am very impressed with how far you have come in 10 days. I will definitely have to check this one out.

Kami said...

Good for you Carrie, on all of it! I need to look into that DVD...I need a new one.

Susan said...

Awesome! You are brave to take on Jillian...she is scary!! Way to go on quiting smoking too, any habit is hard but you are doing girly:) You will feel better and better!!!

Liz said...

Wow! Go you! This is fabulous. I'd try Jillian, but I'm a wuss. Really. I dont like pain. :)

Thank you so much for your sweet comment yesterday. I'm sorry for the losses you've suffered as well.
