A new year and looking for some suggestions

Tuesday, January 01, 2013

Happy New Year everyone!!!

I think I ended 2012 pretty well losing almost 15 pounds. So now I am ready to take on 2013 and keep losing weight and continue living a healthier lifestyle. The past few days have been a little bit tough getting back on track, but today I am really going to focus and do it.

To help, I joined the January Jumpstart Fitness Challenge. Week one starts today and I am really excited to start. Especially since yesterday I went outside for a power walk/jog and I have that great feeling of my muscles being just slightly sore, a feeling that I haven't had in a while. I would like to get back out there and do it again today, however I am hesitant because when I came back inside yesterday I started to cough a lot and was wheezing for quite some time from breathing in all the cold air. It went away, but it still wasn't very fun as it was a very deep cough. Does anybody have any suggestions on how to prevent this? Does it get better over time if I just keep going out there?

Well, aside from that, I really do hope that every has a wonderful year and that we can all keep working towards and meeting our goals!

Here's to 2013!!! emoticon

    I do the same thing in the colder weather, but not in the summer. If it is real bothersome, try a lifesaver or a fruit gum (nothing minty or it mixed with the cold weather will take your breath away!) But it should get better!!! Congrats on the 15lbs what a fantastic way to end 2012, you should be proud!!

    A scarf is a very good idea. It might also help if you used a throat lozenge, or sugar free candy to keep your throat moistened.

    I use TheraBreath mouth wetting lozenges when I exercise because several medicines I take cause dry mouth. You can get them at most drugstores and Walmart.

    That's the answer! I was going to suggest a muff around your face and nose. See, two of us thinking the same thing ... it has to be the answer! Hope you find what works for you!!!

    Try a scarf around your face so the air is warmed a little. It might help. Not sure.
