Just a quick check in today. I've done a wonderful job of logging EVERYTHING so far this month. I've been diligent this summer with working out and being active. But my body has struggled. Every workout I finish thinking I could have done better if I could just catch my breath! I have used my rescue inhaler 20 minutes prior to working out as prescribed but I just wasn't cutting it. Today was the final straw. I went on a really very gentle hike. Used my inhaler prior and wasn't more than a few hundred feet on the trail before I was really struggling. I used it again and there was some relief, but not a lot. Reached the top of the hike and needed to use my inhaler again! Got to the bottom and called my doctors office. They happened to be able to see me this afternoon (what luck!). I left my appt with a trial for a daily medication to use along with my rescue inhaler. I am so hopeful that this will be just what I need to boost my workouts and help me enjoy what I truly love. Hiking!
