Beautiful Sunny Florida Day

Today was a gorgeous beautiful sunny 80 degree day here in Florida and luckily I was able to be out and enjoy it. We took the boat up to Kennedy Space Center KARS Park - where they had an employee picnic day - with astronauts and games for the kids and bands and music and free beer! And it was great attending as a non-smoker for once in my life!! I totally enjoyed myself - there were just one or two times smoking crossed my mind - but they were easily put aside by other thoughts.

What did you do today?

Re: Beautiful Sunny Florida Day

Sounds like a beautiful day! It was mild in Maine - meaning 40 degrees!
I kept busy and had a good day smoke-free - much better than last weekend!
I spent a few hours painting our entryway, cooked, cleaned the jeep and went shopping for a new pair of glasses. Tomorrow will be more work around the house - which has been great. It keeps my hands and mind busy so I don't think of cigs or eating!

2 weeks and 4 days smoke free! I haven't smoked 186 cigs!

Re: Beautiful Sunny Florida Day

Hi Skimmer, that sounds like a fun picnic! I got up kinda late, drank some coffee, then walked 2 miles . Went to Publix, how fun. I tried to nap this afternoon and couldn't. Went to see some friends and now I'm here. Kinda down today, I think maybe because I know I have to start working again in a week or so.

Re: Beautiful Sunny Florida Day

Here in north Mississippi the temp got up to 75. It was gorgeous!! I kept my 10 yeargrandaughter this morning while her parents worked. But we were able to get outside and wash the car and the truck. After she went home, a neighbor's child came over and she and I went walking for 2 miles. Didn't do much of anything but it sure did feel good to get outside!!

Re: Beautiful Sunny Florida Day

Nice Skimmer! I always say you can't go wrong when combining astronauts and picnics! Totally fabu. Here in Okie land it was an amazing 75 degrees with a slight breeze. The kids and I layed out on the warm concrete driveways and watched clouds for awhile then I spent some good time on my photography... I just realized tha with all the money I'm going to be saving, I'll be able to afford some new lenses and stuff for my camera. WHOO HOO!

Re: Beautiful Sunny Florida Day

Well I was wrong, it's 77 and pretty high humidity. I am sweating like a pig. BTW, how do pigs sweat?

Happy Sunday. We all got a free hour to add to our smokefree totals this morning. Since I didn't quit until May I don't have to take an hour away until November.

Re: Beautiful Sunny Florida Day

It is nice out again today to celebrate my 2 weeks, 1 day, 18 hours, 13 minutes, 42 seconds being SMOKE-FREE!!!

Lucy - buying a new camera lens' with money saved from not smoking is a great idea! Unfortunately, I think my house needs a paint job, and a new roof and some new windows and we got an estimate for a sunroom out back, which was about $62k - yeah, I know, the guy was on crack or something, and we're not doing it. But the house painting, windows and roof will put me back about 20 yrs of $$$ for cigs. So I can't look at it like that. I will be looking at how much money in doctor's bills later on I will be saving!!

Traveller, sorry you were feeling down yesterday, hope you have a better day today and keep those cravings at bay!!

Re: Beautiful Sunny Florida Day

I have spring fever here in Maine - I can't wait to play in the yard, and ride my bike to work....I know this quit will get easier, once I can do more outside... AND I won't be sitting around eating, but instead, will be burning calories!

ON YOU BIKE MANGOJUNKY - That uses 300 calories an hour and have you thought that for the first time in years your legs might ache more than your lungs!

Re: Beautiful Sunny Florida Day

I know! It's only 4.5 miles to work, but there are lots of hills. I'm anxious to see how it feels now that I'm not inhaling all those nasty chemicals!

Re: Beautiful Sunny Florida Day

I have been walking 2 miles a day. Have I mentioned how glad I am that Florida is a flat state?
