3 Weeks, 1 Day: Feeling Awesome

I've passed the three week mark, and I'm really feeling a difference in my energy levels. I'm usually tired all the time. I've been trying to combat this with multivitamins and exersize. While those things have been helping, I've had an extra surge this past week or so. Suddenly I feel like doing things, instead of grudingly getting up from work, then going home and sitting on the couch until I force myself to get up and do something productive.

This morning, while I was putting on makeup, I noticed something odd: the spots under my eyes were BRIGHT. Now, I'm a red head and thus have the white white skin that loudly announces the circles under my eyes. And I always have circles under my eyes, no matter how refreshed or well rested I am. So what a nice change to notice brightness under my eyes instead of circles!

I'm attributing the extra energy & missing circles to quitting smoking; I can't think of anything else to attribute it to. I've been taking a vitamin every day for 6 months, and it hasn't helped me like this. I guess my body is feeling healthier. Have other people seen changes like this since quitting?

So wonderful, Brandie! I definitely remember noticing the extra energy. Hang onto it because if you are like me, eventually you get so used to it that it's not so noticeable, kind of like all that money I've saved but can't seem to find ;) In any case, it's a very good thing, and I'm thrilled for you!

It is extremely interesting for me to read that post. Thanx for it. I like such themes and anything that is connected to them. I would like to read a bit more soon.
