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.
