Is it really possible

Wednesday, May 19, 2010

I watched Biggest Loser tonight and I got to wondering if it is really possible for someone who is already 59 and had stage 4 cancer to get fit enough to even walk a marathon, much less run one. Of course, there is a problem with weak ankles (they twist on about the 2nd step whenever I try to run) and the arthritis in my hips that the radiation therapy gave me. I can't even seem to get up most days other than to come in here to the computer. I wish I had someone who could get me up and out of here, but I am alone. I was doing good last year for a while and got down 15 pounds. Now it is back on and I just want to eat bad stuff. Somehow I have to get back at it.

Tomorrow I have an appointment to find out the results of my last MRI. I pray that nothing has started showing up again. Maybe I can get back in the groove of eating right and exercising when that is over. And maybe, just maybe, I can get so I can at least walk a 5k or 10 k sometime in my life.

    Yes, it is possible. You have to take one step at a time and always strive to be better.

    Today is the first day of the rest of your life. What are you going to do with it?

Please read my blog post for today, it has a lot to do with health improvements I have seen since starting the SP meal plan and exercise habits. I truly believe you can do whatever you want, as long as you want it bad enough and work hard enough to get there!

Good luck hun and I wish you nothing but the best with your goals for your future!
