Good for you in making it around the block after being so sick. One day at a time is the way to go! I haven't had the heart racing after the inhailers, but have noticed the breathing is more labored lately...maybe the weather. Like Vicki said let your doctor know and maybe there is another option for you. Congratulations on your weight loss too!

Sounds like you are doing so much better! Who knows what tomorrow will bring!


I sometimes have that heart racing feeling after using my inhaler so I just set down and relax for a few minutes and it goes away. Maybe you should talk to your Dr about it and he can give you a different type ot let you know what to do because of these feeling.

So last month I got bronchitis, then I got the flu last week... well, the doctor said to take it easy and not exercise any more than I felt like doing. Needless to say, I have felt discouraged not exercising at all for a month. Well, yesterday I made it to the mailbox and today around the block. I even walked up to the third floor without needing five minutes to catch my breath.

Some days standing and making dinner has been the challenge of the day, but maybe some day I will be back to the gym and cycling... who knows? One day at a time I guess.

I read something at the doctor's office that I found encouraging. It was an article in a Running Magazine. It said not to fret about "missed workouts," just know that you are doing what your body requires each and every day. I could do more if I used the inhaler my doctor prescribed, but my heart races so much it does not feel safe to exercise with it. Can anyone relate?
