By Julia CI had my first noticable health / fitness benefit today. While I was cycling to work I realised that I had been working the gears so I was changing up earlier & changing down later; meaning I was putting more energy into the ride ... all this without noticing I was working harder.
Back at work today after yesterday's stress attack, things seemed a lot easier than they have been all week.
I decided to venture further afield at lunch time than early in the week and went down to Passion Food at the Newmarket Plaza food court for a crispy skin pork with chilli. I won't say I have this a lot, but when I front up at this chinese food stand and hand over $10, no words are required.
I'd been avoiding this food court as it's right next door to the tofu shop where I'd often bought cigarettes. I did look in the door of the tofu shop as I left, but I was thinking of buying some biscuits or sweets.
Mid afternoon I needed something: Some nameless, unspecified, nebulous, thing. I decided to head down to the local convenience store for a large V & a packet of sugar-free gum. I'm not normally a gum chewer, and with Champix, nicotine gum isn't a good idea, but I wanted to be doing something with my mouth that didnt involve calories.
