I'm just about to take my third shower of the day. I did a treadmill workout this morning, burning 200 calories. I was dripping sweat. I showered and then Natalie came.
Natalie and I danced to the Princess and the Frog CD. It was not an aerobic exercise as we danced and flopped on the bed or on the floor. We rested as much as we danced, but I got absolutely soaked with sweat again. We keep the house at 79 or 80 degrees and we have plenty of humidity. So, I took a shower after Natalie left and then went to Lowe's to buy some supplies my hubby needed to repair the porch that was damaged by wind last week.
Then I went to the gym and did my 10 strength training machines followed by 35 minutes on the stationery bike. I felt like that commercial I saw recently on TV of the guy with a geyser or hose under his arms, but it was my forehead and scalp that seemed to be the greatest source of the river of sweat. But, truly I could wring out any piece of my clothing. Yuck.
So, I'm about to take my 3rd shower today. I have a big non-pile (spread out) of laundry from today's activity. I don't remember getting so sweaty last year. I have increased the intensity of my workouts, but I don't think by that much.
Oh, well, I feel terrific and I'll feel even better after this next shower! Hope you are having an active, happy day, too.
