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?"I'm reluctant to sound like a total fa66ot as well, but my background in sculpture gave me an edge in understanding how we're expected to move thru space." - The Other Other Serge

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.

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.
