I'm a Hot Sweaty Mess
I am a hot sweaty mess. Welcome to summer in the south! It's the humidity that gets me. It doesn't have to be that hot, say 85 degrees, but you add in 80% to 90% humidity & it suddenly feels like 95 outside. Yuck. We had a swim meet tonight & I was in the full force sun for the entire meet. Some clouds or a little breeze would have been nice, or maybe a tent, or since we were the visiting team, getting to spend part of the meet in the chairs that had shade...but it was all a no go. Oh well.
You know those women who don't sweat? Yeah, well I'm not one of them. It pours from me until I look like I've been dumped in a pool or just stepped out of the shower. My head even sweats. I know it's an attractive thought. Today I did Zumba, (it was great) and when I was done my hair was wet and my entire shirt was drenched. None of the other women in the class even looked like they broke a sweat. They were glowing. (insert eye roll here) And before you wonder, I'm a little fluffy, but not fat fat. You know what I mean? It's the I've had 4 children and could stand to lose about 15 more pounds kinda thing. But I know that even if I lose the last 15 I'm still going to sweat up a storm.
The only thing I can think of that is positive about sweating that much is that I can get any impurities out of my body rather efficiently. I just need to make sure I'm drinking enough water so I don't get dehydrated. It great to be hot, sticky, and feel like you've been eating sand because you're mouth is so dry. At the meet tonight, the dad I was working with told me he's pay $100 dollars for someone to get him some water. I was thinking about the same thing, minus the cash, but I almost jumped up to go get him something to drink just to see if he was serious. :)
Well, since I'm super sticky & feel really gross, I guess it's time for me to take a shower. :) I nice cold one, because yes, after a hard workout or too much time in the heat, I've even been known to sweat in the shower. :/
Celebrating Life & dreaming of a nice cool breeze!
