I have motivated...........
.my hubby

Friday, January 11, 2013

As of January 2 2013 I have been faithfully exercising. I joined the January Jumpstart Challenge. Even though I have to adapt it and do as my body allows me (with going through chemotherapy), I have not stopped. My hubby is over weight and has stopped going to the gym because he was afraid of leaving me alone. I have encouraged him that I would be fine for the 1-2 hours he was gone, I am not dying. After the first week of the Challenge I have lost 2 lbs., a WOOHOO moment for me. My hubby decided this week that he wants to return to the gym, a WOOHOO moment for me too, because he said I have motivated him. If I could do exercise with all that I am going through than he can too. Another double WOOHOO moment for me...and him also. Do not get me wrong, I had been constantly encouraging him to go go go !!!! I think he really needed to see me in action, daily doing my exercise videos, steadily increasing my time on the elliptical. I think now he realizes I am serious about losing the weight I gained. I am feeling more "normal" than I have in several months, since this latest cancer episode started. I hope my hubby is serious and will continue this journey (he has a habit of quitting) I will keep pushing him forward.

    I am so glad he is doing this. Your lives right now are far from normal but you need to seek normalcy where you can get it and exercise is one area in your control. You are always setting a good example no matter what challenges you are facing.
