Still waiting til Fri for my next weigh-in...hoping to stay under 260. But something happened this weekend that I just HAD to share. For anyone who is a long-time follower of my blog, you'll truly understand the significance of this. Dwayne...my boyfriend of nearly 7 years...asked me on Saturday, with NO prompting of my own...if I wanted to go down to the fitness center with him and exercise on the treadmill together.
I just sat there and stared at him for a few seconds...blinked a couple of times, while my mind was screaming at me to say something!! I finally, non-chalantly, agreed to go, telling him it sounded like a good idea. And we went.
Bless his heart. I was walking at interval speeds between 3.4 and 3.8. I haven't done any regular exercise in quite a while and that hurt. He was walking at a speed of 3.0 and had to keep grabbing onto the bar in front of him and leaning on it for a few seconds at a time because he said his back hurt when he walked. Poor thing isn't used to any exercise at all....ever.....but I was SOOOOOOOOOOO proud of him for suggesting it on his own and getting out there and doing it.
And guess what else?? He wanted to do it again on Sunday. :)
So for all the blog posts I've written about him never wanting to exercise in his life and only sit on the couch and eat bacon double cheeseburgers while cursing vegetables of any kind.......this is proof that miracles DO happen. :) If you have a boyfriend/husband like mine.....there is always hope. :)
I'll be back on Friday with my weigh-in. Have a fabulous Tuesday friends!
