A few months ago I was tired of being tired. Baby was still not sleeping through the night and my husband was incredibly busy at work. Right after chemo I would walk oh so slowly with different friends a few times a week. When it was too cold, which it often was, I would walk on the treadmill. Then I did a modified Couch to 5k program on it the last 9 weeks of school. On alternate days I would still walk either at baseball games/practice or with friends. It helped me deal with the stress and I think it helped me face the day with more energy. Also it is something good for my body, which I so appreciate (my body that is).
You can see a few things in the picture. I lost my mp3 player so my husband gave me his. I would exercise when Baby would take a nap, instead of do the laundry or the other thousand things I could of done. I put her baby monitor on the treadmill and she slept through almost every time I exercised. L's comment one time when she saw me after I exercised was, "I thought only lumberjacks sweat that much!" Where she is seeing sweaty lumberjacks I do not know. I also would never wear a scarf while exercising. I like to think it helped my hair grow back thicker.
I am still tired but it not as bad as it was before and I know that it will get better.
