Boy, I soooo do not do good in the heat. That's why I live in the NW where heat is something we rarely see. However, the last couple days have been hot hot hot! We're breaking records right and left with temps well over 100 degrees. For a fat girl, this can be brutal.
I'm happy to say though, that I'm handling it all pretty well. I guess since I'm not as well insulated these days, the heat doesn't impact me quite as much.
Back in the day when we had 100 degree days, I was a lump on the couch. I couldn't even think about going outside or being active because the thought in and of itself would instantly make me sweat. I hated to sweat. I mean seriously, I avoided it like the plague so hot days (hot being anything over 80ish) was an excuse to be a couch vegetable.
This week I'm continuing my normal routine and trying to deal as usual. I'm walking, jogging (wuhoo!) and trying to stick with my plan. The only difference ... major, major, major amounts of water. I'm drinking every single chance I get! I'm sure I'll be up a pound or two because of all my water intake but I know I'll be back down next week so I'm sticking with it.
I'm looking forward to losing the additional 35 pounds so that I can be even better suited for the heat.
Although, truthfully, by the time I lose that it will be winter and I'll be wishing for the additional padding to keep me warm!
All well. I guess we can't have it all, right?
