breathing better

Tuesday, May 28, 2013

I have had asthma for a while now. I have always been able to control it, but as anyone who has it knows, it comes up on you suddenly, and there you are, struggling to breathe. I am fortunate in that I have never had to be hospitalized.

I just realized this today while doing a cardiovascular workout- I haven't had any breathing problems for at least two months! No wheezing or coughing, no tightness - really, no nothing since I have been exercising and paying better attention to healthy eating and healthy portions.

Wow - that was something I didn't count on, but I think it is one of the most significant side effects of the conscious effort to treat myself better. Healthy life, healthy lifestyle, healthy weight - it all goes together.
