Taylor gets winded because of smoking

Well, this past week started off pretty tough and then it got harder!

My trainer Ken Cutcher of Anytime Fitness in Huron added another set to all my exercises I was regretting everything I said in my last blog! 

Things get hard and I have to push through them. 

On Wednesday, I was very low on energy and asked Ken if I could switch my workout until the next morning.

I did, but the work out was still tough and I was still low on energy.

I did my workout, despite my body and mind telling me "NO!" 

I think the low energy can be solved by cutting cigarettes out of my life.

I keep trying, but I keep getting beat.

As of noon Sunday, I'm 13 hours into kicking the habit.

I pray this is the time I beat them.

I feel like I can do my workout all day long with no problem if I wouldn't get winded so easily.

If I had a oxygen tank next to me, I would be fine! Haha!

But that is why I sought to be a part of the FIT Challenge. I felt my health was slipping away. Now I have the tools to reclaim my health! I will prevail!

Keep it up Ross. Ken wouldn't be upping your sets if he didn't think you could handle it. Now YOU have to believe you can handle it!

Now I'm a feller with a heart of gold
And the ways of a gentleman I've been told
The kind of guy that wouldn't even harm a flea
But if me and a certain character met
The guy that invented the cigarette
I'd murder that son-of-a-gun in the first degree

It ain't cuz I don't smoke myself
And I don't reckon that it'll harm your health
Smoked all my life and I ain't dead yet

But nicotine slaves are all the same
At a pettin' party or a poker game
Everything gotta stop while they have a cigarette

Smoke, smoke, smoke that cigarette
Puff, puff, puff and if you smoke yourself to death
Tell St. Peter at the Golden Gate
That you hate to make him wait
But you just gotta have another cigarette

Now in a game of chance the other night
Old Dame Fortune was a-doin' me right
The kings and the queens just kept on comin' round

And I got a full and I bet 'em high
But my bluff didn't work on a certain guy
He just kept on raisin' and layin' that money down

Now he'd raise me and I'd raise him
I sweated blood, gotta sink or swim
He finally called and didn't even raise the bet

So I said "aces full Pops how 'bout you?"
He said "I'll tell you in a minute or two
But right now, I gotta have me a cigarette"

Smoke, smoke, smoke that cigarette
Puff, puff, puff and if you smoke yourself to death
Tell St. Peter at the Golden Gate
That you hates to make him wait
But you just gotta have another cigarette

(Ah, smoke it! Hah! Yes! Yes! Yes!)

The other night I had a date
With the cutest little girl in the United States
A high-bred, uptown, fancy little dame

She loved me and it seemed to me
That things were 'bout like they oughta be
So hand in hand we strolled down lover's lane

She was oh so far from a cake of ice
And our smoochin' party was goin' nice
So help me cats I believe I'd be there yet

But I give her a kiss and a little squeeze
And she said, "ah, Marty, excuse me please
I just gotta have me another, cigarette"

And she said, smoke, smoke, smoke that cigarette
Puff, puff, puff and if you smoke yourself to death
Tell St. Peter at the Golden Gate
That you hate to make him wait
But you just gotta have another cigarette
