wow thats sounds like an awesome gift jody :) something you can use at least! its better that you take it easy and build up slowly i think rather than increasing the intensity when your body cannot handle it. keep up the great work

Hey Jody

I agree with Sandra, stick with what you can do until you feel you can do more. There's no sense pushing yourself beyond your limits and hurting yourself as I have stupidly done in the past.

You are doing great and if your asthma is holding up then there is a definite improvement.

Sounds like you had a great mothers day. :D

Good on you Jody. I hope you manage week 2 OK.

I remember in primary school our PE teachers gave us an exercise to run around the oval and then we had to block our noses and breathe through a straw... then they told us that was what it was like to be an asthmatic. Not sure how accurate that is, but it's something that has stuck with me ever since, so I really feel for you struggling with your asthma.
Just keep moving! And don't be lazy...

Thats a good description milky , Ive always described it as that feeling you get when you swim a long way under water and your lungs are screaming for air but when you come up you have to breathe thru a straw so your PE teacher is pretty accurate! Mind you my asthma was a daily struggle a few years and I spent alot of time unwell with it and having multiple asthma attacks a day, now it only rears its ugly head when I exercise, so Im happy

Anyway-I began week 2 YAY!! and survived to tell the tale, and I swear I dont jiggle as much when I run :oops: everything used to move when I started but I feel as though Im toning up a little now, my stride seems less awkward also

You're doing well Jody. It is really good if you are feeling the benefits in that you are feeling more toned. I found from walking alone my legs became more toned quite quickly.

I'm asthmatic as well. I used to get attacks religiously if I was exercising and it was cold. (Me and my sis appeared to have different asthmas - she'd get really bad attacks infrequently, whereas I would always be wheezy and having mini attacks)

I'm now on a new preventative (seratide) and I haven't had to use my puffer in ages don't know if that is due to the different drug or because I'm old enough to take it reliably. I still keep the puffer handy though - It is awfully frightening not being able to get air in you, and then you panic which just makes it all worse.
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
