The third day is the easiest

Friday, October 09, 2009

So, not working out yesterday came easy since I had already not worked out the two days prior. My boyfriend told me that he felt like celebrating our love instead of going to the gym (this isn't dirty I promise) and so I agreed we could. Little did I know he wanted to celebrate at a friend's house, without me, by drinking tequila and watching football.. Oh well, I just need to find another gym date apparently, because he can only work out once a week and not have to worry about anything. I do have to say that while he is naturally built and oh so gorgeous, he has a hard time passing his PT (physical training) tests, which I don't usually.

But at the doctor's office yesterday I found out I definitely DO have asthma. I am being put on albuterol (spelling?) and my doctor will evaluate from the frequency in which I use it if I need a steroid inhaler. Fun fun. Good thing I found this out now and not a couple years ago because I would not have been allowed to join the Army. I can't fathom where my life would be right now without the military... Scary. Let's just say I was a trouble child who liked to party a little too hard.

Went to Houlihans for dinner, and when looking up the calorie info found out that the sandwich I ate had nearly 1000 calories! Jesus.. I really need to find better places to eat out. I went to bed at 7:30 and slept til 6:15 this morning. I got up and did a nice 20 minute run on the elliptical and plan to go to the gym immeadiately from work to avoid giving myself an excuse not to. I will still probably hit my target for workout minutes and calories this week, I will just have to put in a little overtime today and tomorrow. I am willing to do so.

I guess that is it, I am rambling, and I apologize. Have a great weekend!

    I have excersise induced asthma....It only shows up when I'm stationed at high altitudes, though. My youngest has it full blown. He has a neb treatment once a day, with the albeuterol/xopenex when it gets bad.
    Just getting used to taking the treatment and managing your condition BEFORE you need it is the tough part. If you know you're going to be doing aerobics, pre-treat. You'll feel better and be able to continue for longer periods.
    Good luck! emoticon

    I imagine it could. My ultimate goal is to become healthy overall, and avoid further complications my family lives through.

    I have asthma too and it can be done, sometimes it's harder than others. I think that's why swimming is my favorite activity, but I can't do that right now since I just had open heart surgery. Believe it or not, losing some of this weight has helped me with my breathing!
