I smoked my last cigarette last night at around 10:52 PM. I can't say that I'll miss the sensation of smoking. I don't know what triggered it, but the past few months I haven't been enjoying my cigarettes and smoked only when I was feeling stressed out or angry. There are other ways to handle those feelings, I know. It's going to be tough, not impossible, for me not to smoke at school. An insane amount of people smoke at my school. But I will manage it.
My boyfriend bought me a body brush from New Seasons Market last night too! I've been wanting to get one for ages, but being an unemployed student doesn't leave me with much spending money, LOL. So far I've used it twice and it really does feel amazing afterwards. Although this morning my back is a little itchy; the way the rest of my body feels more than makes up for it. ^_^ My intention is to brush twice a day; once in the morning before my shower and a second time in the evening, before a bath. I'm excited to see what this brush can do for my body.
As far as my eating habits go... the past few months have been hell. Adjusting to the life of a student again has not been easy or fun for me. I haven't been eating hardly any fruits of vegetables - a big reason for that is because I just can't afford them! And I can definitely feel it in my bones, so to speak. I've been gassier than I've ever been in my life. I'm at a weight that feels very unnatural to me. My acne is back with a vengeance. It's just not a pretty picture at the moment. BUT because of all that, I've decided to continue my raw food journey. My body is practically begging me for it! So I'm going to try with all my might to get to an organic grocery store at least 3 times a week. I will be eating loads and loads of dark greens, apples, broccoli, cucumbers, sprouts, etc. etc. etc.!
This is a brand new day for me. It's time to study/do homework, so I'm definitely going to go make myself a delicious green smoothie. Red-lead lettuce, a banana and organic blueberries. YUM!
