I am getting frustrated that things seem to keep getting in the way of the weekend workouts. It makes me nervous as those are pretty important steps in my training and with Wildflower only a month away.
The latest? I broke out in Hives last Thursday night and I am pretty sure I got them from using seventh generation's powder laundry detergent.
I got it the worst on my chest and stomach so there was no way that I was going to put on a sports bra. And aside from the fact I wanted to scratch my skin off, I was advised to stay out of the sun while taking the medicine the doctors prescribed, so I was house bound the entire weekend--missing yet another major weekend of workouts.
I did however learn a few things:
Benedryl works better as an antihistamine when taken orally--forget the gels
Xyzal is an even better antihistamine
Oatmeal baths make you feel like you are bathing in vomit (and don't actually work that well--stick with a cold compress)
Cortozone shots are good
The Bourne Ultimatum wasn't all that different from the other two films
Seventh Generation powder laundry detergent is no good
