I have to tell you that workout on Saturday was the toughest one yet. My chest, shoulders and arms are still sore!! But ... I went home and asked my husband if we have a bar bell set around the house, and when I found out we didn’t I said I’d like to get one!
My husband is not a man of many words but he has really been supporting me by helping out around the house more so I can have time to go to the gym and when I don’t want to go he encourages me to go. “It’s only for eight weeks,” he says. I get e-mails from a co-worker who works out at the gym already (not part of the challenge) who I really didn’t communicate with much before I started seeing her at the gym. And my sister-in-law says I’m “famous” every time my name is in the list of participants.
This has been a great experience so far and we aren't even half-way through it!! I feel stronger already!

I think Kristin already e-mailed an example of what our dad has been doing. He’s a riot! My husband has been awesome as well. I work 8-5 M-F, so our schedules are tight anyway, but he’s been a trooper. I have a 5-year-old, 3-year-old and 7-month-old, and he has supported me by taking over things that I usually do at home with the kids (dinner preparation, feeding the baby, “diaper duty,” laundry, dishes, etc.). He has made it possible for me to work out at the gym six days a week without complaint. It’s been an adjustment for all of us, and without his help and support, I couldn’t do it. He has been the best daddy and husband I could ever ask for!
