I have finally signed up again for martial arts classes, this time Kempo Karate. The dojo is also certified to teach Gracie Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, which means I will probably be able to convince my boyfriend to join up.

This comes one week after my official quit smoking day. What better way to reward my healthy decision than to make another one. I'm not fat, certainly, but I'm not as slender as I used to be, nor as flexible.

I owe a great many thanks to those on #everything who have been very supportive of me quitting smoking and have offered advice. Super-double thanks for people who have understood my crappy mood and have helped me to recognize it for what it is -- a withdrawal symptom. Thanks for not holding it against me, and thanks for continuing to encourage me.
