    WK, good work on the change in diet and quitting the nicotine.

    It will benefit your whole life.

    I'm with emevas...why cut out stength training? Is it because you shouldn't get your heart rate up too high?

    WK, this thread couldn't come at a better time for me. On Wednesday I started Judo, sucked gas for too much of it and vowed not to smoke again. Yesterday I was on the patches, but today I'm going cold turkey, with a patch on hand just in case. It will work this time, I just have to stay busy. Another benefit is the AU$5000 per year savings, which helps a broke digga like myself.

    Being broke does wonders for your diet, as an aside.

    Better plan: Go to one of those "quitting smoking" groups and sell cigarettes to people in the men's room during break periods at inflated rates. You get rid of your supply and help make back some money WHILE getting a great support network.

    let me clarify, i didnt quit strength training, i cut it back for more cardio time. i was obsessed with getting huge lifts and i wasn't doing enough cardio work. i definitely wasn't doing enough interval work. now, i'm still doing plenty of lifting and body weight work (pull ups, dips, etc) but i'm not obsessing about getting a 350 bench press or a 400 dead lift.

    i'm gonna have to do a write up on quitting smoking now that i'm 6 months quit and out of the woods with it.

    Good that you quit smoking. I hope to see you at judo soon.

    Just an FYI, just because you're 6 mo. out, don't think you're out of the woods. Stay away from smokers. Don't bum one. All it takes is that one, or just a little stress. I made it 9 month no nicotine of any sorts. Dad wound up in the hospital, I wound up outside the hospital with the smoking members of the family chain smoking. Had to quit. Again. For about 2 years, I'd get all nice and quit and confident and then something would happen, and I'd be surrounded by smoking family members and stress, and start chain smoking. Now, it's been about 3 years. I hope I'm done, but...

    Welcome back to judo. Enjoy your stiff muscles, body aches, and favorite NSAID while you get back on that bicycle.
