Well, the vaporizer has curbed my desire for smoking, a good percentage. I have fallen off the wagon from time to time, as a lot of folks I know still smoke. It's Vegas. But that's no excuse. I can only blame myself. Anyway, getting out to run more the past month has definitely made me feel alot better physically. I feel that I have more energy and also feel more mentally alert. My love handles are reducing, lol... I'm such a bitch haha. I have also started going to this crossfit gym called Revolution Fitness. I purchased a month membership on Groupon for $40.00. It's a great deal, unlimited for a month for just 2 twampies. The trainers and other clients there seem pretty enthusiastic, the gym is pretty large and their schedule is pretty encompassing. What's not to like. I actually enjoy working out again. I'm not trying to get washboard abs, but trying to reduce the laundromat to about one or two machines.

Vapin' Like a Mofo'... It's been a minute since I wrote in this thing, it's one of the things I loved to do, was write. As the band Digable Planets said, "I'm chill like that", or something similar to that rather... I've pretty much quit the tobacco for the last week and half. I don't seem to miss it. I started "vapin" about 10 days ago. I am not sure why I did not start using a vaporizing "pen" before. I think my addiction to cigarettes stemmed from just getting used to lighting up and that feeling of smoke inhalation into my body. I know it's bad, but you would have to talk to a smoker to help you comprehend the feeling of how somebody would want to continually suck in what is carbon monoxide into their lungs daily. It's great! Haha...anyway, the vapin' pen fills that need, without the harm of tobacco smoke, tar and other dangerous substances that mixed in with the inhalation of a lit cigarette. Well, that's what I choose to believe, lol... You make the judgement call, "smoke" or "water vapor", which is more dangerous? I'll take the lesser of two evils. The best thing about it, is that I wake up without the feeling of that tightness in my lungs. The body feels better. Maybe it's a placebo effect, but it's working. My desire to run has come back. Takin' baby steps though, but I'll get there. Plus the temps in Begas are getting a little cooler in the mornings.

Shakin The Rust Off... I haven't played cash in months. Actually haven't played poker consistently for quite a long time. I have hit up small tourneys from time to time, but hitting the money board in tourneys has eluded me on the turn of the river card. I haven't been winning those coin flips. I can't answer why I kind of stopped playing cash. The grind of sitting at a no limit table I guess got to me. I was content on playing a tournament and limiting my loss to what the buy in was. I know that in the longer run, cash play would seem to be a more profitable situation. You pick your spots, push the money in when you're a major favorite, lay down your cards when you know you're beat, gauge who's playing weak and pounce. Do this without putting all your chips on line, also without worrying that you will be out of the tourney all in. So, I just happened to have the urge to play some lowball no limit at Green Valley Ranch before heading home last night. Ended up a little over half up on the equity of my buy in after about an hour n half of play. I was getting tired, so I decided to cash out when was up. It's only Lebron shoe money. Up is up, I didn't want to chase the dragon, when I'm not mentally on top of it. It felt good the to shake the rust off though...
