Chi-Chi Weezer (If you have to ask...)

Tuesday was really hard again, I almost cried while jogging AGAIN!

This is why: I do ok when I work out, but jogging and doing stairs make me REALLY out of breath...like hurting and sore throat and hard to breath and then afterwards I was getting this rattling cough.

Well, I went to the Dr. for something else and talked to her about this, discussed symptoms and the past and I HAVE ASTHMA! Well, exercise induced asthma. (It's a real thing)


So the Dr. was Thursday early morning, got my inhaler right afterward and used it Thursday before personal training and I was able to run (well, jog) about 2.5 times as much as before! Can you believe that? MY WHOLE LIFE! I thought it was just ‘cause I was fat that I was breathing so hard...I mean, it is but there is an additional component as well.



So Thursday was a lot better, today I took the dog on a 40 minute walk, kind of leisurely...even though it killer her; and tomorrow is outside boot camp at 9am!

I also went to see the chiropractor on my trainer's advice because I fractured my tail bone when I was a kid, and have been super sensitive every since, and apparently my back is jacked...but not in a painful way which is funny.

My upper back is "locked up” my coccyx is all out of whack and my sacrum is twisted and slightly stuck hahahah

You're a mess! Poor thing! Between your coccyx (heehee, she said coccyx!) and the asthma... it's a wonder you've survived boot camp this far. KEEP IT UP!!

Emily! Ha! It is funny because my back never really bothered me. I have a 5x4" area on my lower back that is super sensitive to touch. I mean, it has ruined "moments" because of misplaced hands. Sometimes, if the dogs are sleeping behind me on the couch, they will stretch and hit it just right and I will yelp! But, the only other time it really is a problem is when I am doing exercises where I am on my back and my legs need to be lifted. So it really wasn't a big deal until I started exercising hard!

Also, the asthma isn't a biggie either, like I said, it only kicks in when I jog or do stairs (basically any physical exercise where you can no longer conventrate on breathing out your nose)

Thanks for the well wishes, and the compliments...it really does keep me encouraged!

Damn girlie, you're jacked. Makes me all the more proud of you for pushing on...I knew a girl years ago that would have used these things as an excuse to give up. Very proud indeed.
