Part of my getting back to normal (or better) is exercising to minimize fatigue and to loose weight. During my treatments and for a few months following, fatigue was a big issue. As my wife reminds me, the chemotherapy and radiation were rough on my body and their effects don’t go away immediately. In January 2011 I started to track the number of steps I walked each day. I set a goal of walking 10,000 steps per day by my birthday on March 20, 2011. This also will be one week shy of a year after I was diagnosed with cancer (squamous cell carcinoma) at base of tongue and lymph node in my neck.
I’m tracking my progress daily and you read more about it by clicking on “Walking” in the navigation bar above or click here.
