emoticon VXWALL, I have to laugh and cry with you at the same time. I have the same problems. Chronic Bronchitis and asthma, just started with a nebulizer on top of two inhalers and a nasal inhaler, allergy pills + my cpap machine. I also take a pill to control muscle movement and seizures, one for headaches and seizures, a stomach pill for gerd, my happy pill and a cholesterol pill. All first thing in the morning then take and repeat all the pills again at night. nebulizer is 4 times daily, inhaler 1 is 4 x daily, inhaler 2-1 x daily. Lucky me..
But, I do the best I can to get out and do some walking even though it is hard. I'm not going to let it stop me. My right leg is really bad and I have to walk with a cane. I did manage to get up to 6 miles it takes me a little over two hours to do it, but I do it. That was my goal and I made it. I do have to back down a bit, my leg is swelling and the foot on the right, and now I've gotten a big blister on the ball of the left foot. The toes still curl under on my right foot when I walk, so the doctor wants me to cut back some. She thinks I pushed myself to hard, by walking everyday, instead of 3 to maybe 4 times a week. So just talk to your doctor and see what type of exercise that he or she recommends for you. And how many calories he/she recommends also. If you have a laptop I recommend you take that with you and show the doctor the spark people recommended diet for you. That is what I did. Do mention it, when you make your appointment, that you'll need time to talk to the doctor when you come in, a little more time than usual. I hope this helps. emoticon

UPDATE and EDIT:

Shortly after I made this commitment, I went to the dr for SOB and, low and behold, I came out with a diagnosis of COPD and on steroids. I'm one who reacts to steroids with a voracious hunger that can't be assuaged. Additionally, I was found to have extensive muscle damage from who knows what and it is nigh on impossible to exercise, soooooo...

My new and more possible challenge to self is:

1. .Eat 'white' or refined carbs no more than 2 days a week (breads, rice, pasta, potatoes)

Good idea! Typically I stay away from 'challenges' for a variety of reasons. But, this is one I like a lot and can hope to accomplish what I need to by year end. Thanks.

This challenge comes from JOYFUL78 in Team Indygirl - and she invented it as a result of read this very thought provoking article "What if It's All Been a Big Fat Lie?" www.nytimes.com/2002/07/07/magazine/
wh
at-if-it-s-all-been-a-big-fat-lie.htR>ml?pagewanted=all&src=pm

Anyway - no matter what you think - to do the challenge for YOURSELF is a good idea!!

emoticon This is a 71/70 - Day Challenge until 2013 ~ Won't you join in ? emoticon

Time will pass whether we do something during that time or not...
so why not DO something about it together? :-) it is a brief challenge so we can do this!


10/20/12 = Sat. Did you know that we only have 72 days left until 2013?

10/21/12 = Sunday, it will be only 71 days left until 2013.

10/22/12 = Monday, it will be only 70 days left until 2013


what are you going to do to help yourself reach your goals in the days remaining :)

whatever your GOAL is... we can do it together emoticon

emoticon Whether it is to:

* lose weight
* walk a block more than you are now
* floss more
* eat healthier
* read more
* work on obtaining a more positive attitude
* better grades in school
* deep condition your hair more often
* declutter and organize your office or home


your GOAL can be whatever you want it to be...

you can document it here and watch yourself blossom emoticon emoticon

and each time you reach a daily goal

or weekly goal you can put this mark on it emoticon

we can DO it! starting today,

right now,

no delays

no procrastinations :)



Lets DO this! emoticon emoticon
