So I know this might sound crazy, but I have never REALLY been able to sweat. I mean the kind of sweat that just drips and leaves your socks and underwear drenched. Yeah, I know that's gross, but THAT has never happened to me.
I mean I get hot and sweat, but it's mostly beads that just kinda run a bit, and my face turns beat red (sometimes purple). I'd even get a little a sticky, but I'd never just pour sweat . I've noticed recently that I'm sweating more, but the funny thing is that I haven't changed a lot. I've worked out in the gym, jogged, you name it, but whatever I'm doing now, is really working when it comes to sweating, and WOW does it feel GREAT! I am cooling down faster than i used too. It used to take me half a day to cool day (seriously), and that is with drinking water as well. I used to walk around with a red face all day once I got that hot, but now I feel NORMAL! Ok, well I feel as normal as I can
Yesterday I noticed it big time, I got up danced, did some Pilates, and stair climbing. I was pretty sweaty by the then, and late afternoon I did Jillian Michael's 30 day shred, that kicked my sweat into OVERDRIVE. I didn't stop sweating till I took a cool bath that night. I even was sweating while washing dishes (weird). I flipped the switch and now it's hard to shut off. I don't know what's caused it, but I hope it continues, it gets old doing a minimal workout and feeling like your head is going to explode, not to mention when people see you and say things like " You better sit down and rest." ,then I have to say "I'm fine, just a little hot.". I'd turn so red people thought that I'd have a heart attack or stroke.
True Story, when I was about 6 or 7, and already quite overweight, our class had to go on a 5 mile . hike up to one of highest points in West TN, known as Pilot Knob at Nathan Bedford Forrest Stat Park. The hike started out fun, because I liked outdoors, but being that I was so out of shape, the little fat kid, could hardly handle it. By the time I reached the top, I nearly had a heat stroke, and teachers had to tend to me while all the other kids were having a big good time watching a movie in the museum. It is one of those things that you never forget.
I remember this wooded area very well.
Me, around that time.
That's not the only time I was in that situation; although, it probably was the worst. Actually one of my goals is to back and do that hike again, and maybe even do a bigger hike.
That kind of gives you an idea of how this not sweating thing is a problem, it's also hereditary because my Mom is the same way.
So anyway, I'm hoping that I keep sweating like this, for whatever reason is causing it. Funny thing is that I LOVE to sweat now, it feels so GOOD! Yeah I'm a total freak!
LOVIN' THIS SWEATIN'!!!
Now, I can't blog without some sweat motivation can I?....
This one always makes me smile
I can't help it, I have a thing for cats!
My most recent. If you look cute after working out, then you didn't workout hard enough! This pic proves that!
