My Two Year “Chemoversary”

So today marks the second anniversary of my last chemo treatment.  Praise the Lord!

I’m feeling well, my health is getting better day by day, and I am happy to be alive.

As I type this, I’m actually walking on my treadmill at the “desk” I created with a leaf from our dining room table stretched across the handles of the treadmill. Somehow, spending time walking on this is so much easier when I have something else to do.

Do you ever feel like you shouldn’t spend the time to exercise because you have “better” things to do?  Maybe more fun, or more pressing or even just because it feels like a “luxury”?  I know I struggle with that sometimes.  Really though, it’s important, and by getting creative, great discoveries are made.  This contraption?  It’s the byproduct of a FitBit challenge with my cousin Matt’s wife, Jaige.  I challenged her to see who could do the most steps in the weekend.  For some reason she thinks this is cheating!  I wholeheartedly disagree. 🙂

I don’t feel overwhelmingly philosophical tonight, I just didn’t think a great day like today should go by without a celebratory post. 🙂  Enjjoy each day as it comes.  You never know what may be around the next bend.

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”  Jeremiah 29:11 NIV
