Summertime Blues

8:49 PM

So, it's been a LONG time since I've done a blog update but I figured now would be a good time to do so. Life has been pretty interesting this summer...I won't go into details about EVERYTHING, but I'll just say that there's been a good amount of stress. But, instead of writing pages and pages of high stress stories, I'm going to focus on one of the main reasons I hate summer: THE HEAT DOES CRAZY THINGS TO MY SKIN!

Okay, so for those of you who know me, you know that I have a few skin conditions, which go absolutely INSANE in the summertime. With one of my conditions, I break out into hives every time I exercise. Basically, my body responds to the temperature outside and the warming up of my body during exercise as an allergic reaction. I can usually stop this by taking an antihistamine prior to exercising, but in the summertime, it generally doesn't help. It's like, my body is fighting against the heat and losing miserably. Even when I exercise indoors, the hives are unbearable. Also, one of my other conditions causes me to get abscesses due to excessive sweat. And, of course, with it being sooooo hot, there's a lot of sweat to be had.  So, after several visits to my dermatologist, I have had to put off exercising for the summer...so I literally haven't worked out since the beginning of June after my first breakout. It has been pretty lame.

But, there is an upside to this sad tale...I haven't gained any weight!!! I realize that after all this time of trying to be healthy and eat healthy, perhaps I've finally learned what my body needs to prevent weight gain. It's been almost 3 months and I haven't gained any weight. Now, I haven't lost any either which, ya know, isn't all that great. But, I've kept off those 25 lbs, which is what matters most to me. So, even though I haven't been able to work out, my body is still doing just fine. I'm staying in out of the heat. I spend a little extra time walking my dog when it's time for her to go outside, so I get a little bit of exercise. But, I'm looking forward to fall, so I can get back out there and work it out again!

So, thanks for stopping by! Hopefully, my next update won't take 3 months to get around to lol.
