We do say we are going to go for walks, we even attended a dance class for awhile. Sadly finances forced us to quit the dance class. I get upset sometimes that he can't keep up with me. We walk, and I like walking at a faster pace, but his ankle is always hurting him so we end up walking at a snails pace. I slow down to keep pace with him, but I feel like I am not accomplishing anything for myself by doing this(selfish sounding I know). I guess I could go for MY walk when he is at work, and when i walk with him it could just be for leisure.
I have mentioned us joining a gym together, but our finances now wont allow it. I tried talking him into a treadmill for years..but he didnt see how we really needed one. I have even opened up the possibility of us joining weight watchers, but to no availe.
Now, he is going to such extremes that he says he isnt going to eat for a week, and he wants to get rid of the new reclining loveseat we got that we JUST paid off. This is what he does...on a regular basis...he gets tired of being lazy and fat, so he decides to do something about it...it lasts at the MOST a month, then its back to the same old same old, sit on the sofa, eat chips and dip, fall asleep by 8pm...and that is that!
You know the funny thing is that he seems to have been reading my mind yesterday when I first posted this. He was really down on himself for letting himself get so out of shape. So, I spent the better part of the day trying to cheer him up and letting him know that we can do this. We took our puppy for a walk, which was quite a workout for me(I was the one holding her leash), since she is new to the whole walking on a leash thing...lol. BUT, this time he actually asked me for my help in this....WOW, a member of the male species asking for help....lol, I know what my job is now
Like you, my husband has learned a LOT of new tricks in the past couple years...I guess I am just going to have to help him keep on track with this
Thanks for everyone's input!
