“physical, physical, I wanna get physical…”

I cannot believe how much I sweat while exercising! This is a fairly new development and I don’t know if it means I’m working harder/better or if I somehow hit the “let it drip” switch. It’s bad people. I feel like a waterfall is running down my face every morning. I suspose I should invest in a headband (or 12) but I’m just not sure I’m ready to go there. I already have the haircut of Olivia Newton John circa 1980. If I add a headband I’ll look like this:

Actually, I’ll be a much fatter & redder version of this glorious photo but still. Today I was really tired and frankly a little lazy during our workout. I just didn’t give it my all. I’m so tired of all the running! Run, run, run. Run 2 warm up laps. Run up and down the gym. Run up the stairs. Running, running all the day! On top of the running we did a veritable plethora of push-ups and crunches to round off our early a.m. torture session. My arms and abs are feeling the pain now. I’d better get over the anti-running attitude though cause the weigh-in’s a comin’ and I want to lose big!

    LOL I hear you about the major sweating thing. And the running… Well, I gave that up due to lack of interest. 😀 Instead, I’ve decided to walk more; my old knees would probably stage a revolt if I tried running again… LOL

    You have a really great attitude to your weight-loss journey; that’s awesome to see. 🙂 Good luck, and happy losing! 🙂

    RUNNING! I have always hated it, and now it is almost impossible! inasmuch as I have very creaky,stiff. arthritic knees. Sweating, I am an expert at it. I work in a HOT, STEAMY kitchen. I also take more than one Rx that can cause sweating, (and they do). Have you had your thyroid checked? That can sometimes cause sweating if it is out of kilter. I cannot use that one as an excuse because it is within normal range. If I sweat too much, then I feel faint, to add to the woes.

    ahhhhh come on, live a little and go get the headband! but do not forget the wrist bands too. hahaha. Kidding aside, I am so proud of you and your determination! You rock!

    I just got a fabulous idea for a birthday present for you! Maybe they have them at DI. Ash is in the process of evaluating her fitness level right now and seems to feel the lack of exercise. She ran around the elementary school gym while I finished up my last day of school! See what a great example you are?! I sweat a lot too, but it’s better than passing out, besides you look like you’re working hard. Drink lots of water! Wow that makes me want a Pepsi! Love ya and keep up the good work!!!
