Sign up to walk or run for your favorite charity or something that really pulls at your heartstrings. There's nothing like the motivation and satisfaction that comes from raising money for something that matters to you. I have walked 40 miles in the AVON breast cancer walk here in the beautiful Rocky Mountains two years in a row. The real motivation is walking next to breast cancer survivors, some just out of chemo. Nothing will bring you to tears faster and spur your motivation!!!
I highly, highly recommend the book, _Anti Cancer: A New Way of Life_, by David Servan-Schreiber, MD. It was written by a doctor who was himself diagnosed with cancer at a young age. He researched ways to help himself (foods, supplements, meditation, etc.) treat/cure his cancer, on top of conventional treatments. His recommendations are backed up by solid research, and very helpful. I am a cancer survivor hoping to prevent a recurrence, and this book is the best I've found.
