That fat!

Sunday, January 13, 2013

SO this weekend we stayed with some friends in the "big city" which is quite a drive from our house.

The man of the house has started a new company called Monkey House. It's a cool place where kids can run, play, jump and swing! (Shameless plug here--

I add the link so you can see what types of things there are. My friends told me that it was okay if I played on the equipment. I hadn't even had a chance to play on something like that in a LONG time!

I had a blast!

For about 15 minutes.

Then I started coughing and wheezing. For the next half hour.

I have never had asthma.

Have I really gotten THAT fat???!!

No, I didn't go back out and play--I was way to ashamed!

    don't assume it's fat or asthma--it could be even something in the air that irritated you.
Sorry you felt ashamed. People should be more understanding.

    I have asthma, and can tell you it's not weight-related. And if left untreated, it only leads to worse problems. For instance, asthma that only flares up during exercise sickness, etc is acute. If left untreated, it turns into chronic asthma that flares up regularly. Doesn't matter what you weigh, your age or gender. Some people have it, some don't. Hope you start to feel better soon!!

    Those places are intense! They get everybody panting, but, wheezing sounds less like a weight related thing and more of a lung issue thing.

15 minutes was a fantastic calorie burn!

    Fun! We're heading up to Minneapolis are at the end of this month actually for our "family Christmas." It always works the best at the end of January since December is a busy month for everybody. May have to check it out if we have some extra time!

    I do not know what the symptoms of Asthma are, but you really should see your physician if it continues.

Do not be ashamed. You were letting your inner kid out which is HEALTHY. We need to think like kids again when exercising is just "playing and having fun". emoticon
