In a mad search for my spare motorcycle keys on thursday, I ended up triggering a really bad asthma attack thursday night/friday morning. I'm still coughing and my nose is stuffed up, so I'm definately having to take it easy. yesterday was really hard, I hadnt slept well all night, and the albuterol was making me jittery and making it hard to concentrate.

But it reminds me that I need to find a good pulmonary specialist in the City. Right now I'm doing all the right things to take care of myself, such as avoiding carbs, avoiding smoked items, avoiding milk products, as well as avoiding smoke, and heavy scents.

But I'm still jittery! *sigh* If its not better by tomorrow or monday, I've got an appt with my doc, or heading to Urgent Care.

The nice thing is that this weekend was supposed to be mellow, so that's just fine. :)

got up at 5:45 today, went to the gym -- a little bad because of asthma issues caused by cleaning my damn vacuum cleaner. Next time, pay the 20$ and have the shop do it, just not worth the aggravation!

anyway, 40 minutes on the pre-cor, 3 miles, drank a ton of water.
Shoulders: hand weights, hated looking at myself in the mirror.

Breakfast: too much cereal!
 wif chocolate soy milk

no tea

35 minutes, 30 in the zone, and I pushed it to keep the heart rate at the higher part of the zone. Gonna see if I can move it up a bit. Just did shoulders today, free weights, YAY! one of the things I really like about this gym is their great selection of free weights on both floors. I may ask for a personal trainer session to learn how to use them on the balance balls. I'm going to at least try some exercises on it next week.

hard to breathe today. Really muggy.

only 35 minutes today, breathing was a little difficult, and I didnt want to push it, but 30 minutes in the zone, so all good.
I did arms today:

curls: 30 lbs, 3 sets, 8 reps
tricep push downs with rope: 70 lbs, 3 sets, 8 reps
overhead tricep: 60 lbs, 3 sets, 8 reps

35 minutes, pre cor

Got home and had a bad asthma attack after taking a shower. Lay down and fell asleep for like an hour, so instead of being at work early, I was late, doh! Then to make it worse, as I got on the elevator at work, someone who'd just gotten off had too much perfume on and I had an attack in the elevator! argh!

so headachey and cranky today so far.
