You might find a log useful motivation as you start improving.

Perhaps! Though if I were to weigh myself I might be sad, so I'll give it a bit of time

Maybe he means an exercise log?

Putting things in a physically written format can have profound consequences. Logging food intake, exercise, weight, etc. is all good toward improving. But, scratching it out physically (as opposed to just digital), has been shown to yield better results.

All sorts of studies show that writing things is better than typing. It's pretty weird stuff...

At this stage, perhaps getting in the mindset of never forgetting to do your exercises is more important than the actual exercises.

Creating a good habit takes time!

I've had mild asthma, allergies, and exercise-induced bronchoconstriction (the proper name for exercise-induced asthma, since the exercise doesn't cause asthma but exacerbates the symptoms) for a while, but recently it's gotten a bit worse. I'm frequently out of breath, have coughing fits at night/can't sleep, etc. So I'm going to the doctor tomorrow for that (in addition to an odd rash on my calf that may be in the exact opposite spot to another rash developing on my other calf), and wanted to be slightly informed on the treatments for this sort of thing.

As of right now, I've only been prescribed albuterol in a rescue inhaler, which is not particularly useful to me (never had an even remotely life-threatening asthma attack). I took Singulair/Montelukast 5 or 6 years ago, but not anymore. Those tablets may be part of a potential solution, since my symptoms are more regular than they used to be. What should be a big prescription is a long-acting beta agonist (not a doctor, no clue what WebMD is trying to explain to me) spray to inhale once or twice a day. That, along with some other similar sprays and the Singulair tablets, seems to be the most common options. Hopefully it's easy and it works
