Sweat and all that means
Sunday, December 09, 2012
This may seem like a strange blog post, but for me this is exciting. When I was in college (a long long time ago), I stopped sweating. When it was hot outside or when I got into a sauna, I never sweat. I would do aerobics classes and no sweat. My body temperature changed too. I stopped being cold all the time and was hot all the time. That hasn't changed in the past 20 years.
This February I decided I needed to take my exercise and nutrition seriously and make some changes. I was watching an infomercial for Les Mills Pump. I was well over my heaviest weight ever, and I knew that strength training would be my best bet. Especially since it would be like cardio for me. I got way hooked on it. After a few weeks, I noticed that I was sweating. A lot. I thought it was strange. Me who NEVER sweat. It kept up. I sweat through all my workouts now. I feel better for it.
I just, two minutes ago, finished an aerobics routine - Turbo Fire Low HIIT 20. I am dripping sweat. This is amazing to me. I am so lucky that my body chemistry is improving enough to allow me to sweat. I am getting rid of toxins, and my body is able to cool down. I am lucky to be able to sweat.
