Hey everyone !
I am still working hard at losing weight. I been put back on steroids for my asthma and I'm sure that this will be a bit of a setback but I'm going to work hard to keep going. A few days ago I found out I was having an asthma attack, sinus infection, and bronchitis. At that time I could only sleep in 3 to 5 minute intervals before violently coughing myself awake.
I decided to go to the emergency room and then I was diagnosed with all of the above. I have an antibiotic and steroids and using my inhaler twice daily. Trying to stay as active as I can but obviously we can't breathe is difficult to exercise. So I've been doing more body weight strength training things. Along with eating as healthy as I can while traveling and drinking lots of water. They also think I have another kidney stone on my left side this time so I will likely be making some dietary changes in drinking even more water.
As far as my goals go, I'm down about 5 to 8 pounds and still working hard to lose each month until the end of the year. I'm applying to fellowship in at a conference right now mingling and meeting lots of important people.
I hope you all are doing well! I plan to make the most out of this month even if I spent most of it sick. I'll check in again soon
