Day 12 ... ITCHY!!!

Ok, so I'm miserable today. Did the beach hike - since I did that one before, I didn't take any pics. I decided to do Cardio Intervals after the hike instead of the pool class. I did ok, but my feet hurt... in fact, they were sort of asleep & very tingly during the whole class. I think I need new shoes. Someone told me about a store around here where they video you walking on a treadmill & then based on their analysis of that, they'll recommend shoes. I want to go do that this weekend.

So... since my shoes were an issue, I decided to sort of take it easier this afternoon, and took all pool classes. Since it was colder & windy, I stayed in the pool. Bad idea. I guess they don't have enough chlorine in the pool... so, I got contact dermatitis and essentially have a VERY itchy rash from my neck down. Thankfully someone had a benadryl gel that I borrowed. It seems to be the only thing that could help with the itch. The hydrocortisone cream didn't relieve it. As of right now... I'm still not sure I'll be able to sleep tonight.

Here was today's schedule (which I didn't follow in the afternoon):

6am - stretch class (didn't go to)
7am - breakfast (french toast & scrambled eggs)
8am - hike (beach hike again)
11:15 - cardio intervals (treadmill with inclines for me)
12:30 - lunch (chicken stew & wheat roll ... was more like chicken soup, but was tasty)
1:15 - mtg for stay-overs (prep for next week)
2:30 - liquid moves
3:30 - circuit training (which I normally like)
4:30 - cardio disco jam
5:30 - dinner (meatball sandwich)

Ok... I'm done for today.... still itchy though :(


  1. Did you let them know about the rash? Sounds like they need more chlorine. Yuck! Good luck!

  2. That really stinks. Hope you feel better tomorrow.

  3. eeeewwwww!!! I can't believe you *caught* something in that pool... well, maybe I can :) I took many many pool classes and did the 3 pool classes in a row twice... thankfully I escaped without any rashes :)

    I think you're doing awesome....and you're almost done week 2!! Keep it up buttercup :)
