I knew I lost this week but not how much. Last night I weighed in down another 4.4 lbs! May 13th was the last time I had that much of a loss.
Since the beginning of May I've lost
.25 in off my thighs
.38 in off my arms
.5 in off my chest
1.25 in off my hips
Yesterday Benny said that I didn't need to get back down to my high school weight. It's not a NEED; that weight just happens to be in the ideal range. So I looked online last night to bring up ideal weight calculators. Calculator.net had the most variety out of what I saw.
There were some other interesting things calculated on other sites. Take Halls.md...
There were other sites but I didn't capture the URLs such as these two.
Everything says my goal weight of 130 lbs is spot on!
Monday I followed up with my Dr. He said the ER diagnosed me with pleurisy but that didn't make sense based on my symptoms. He's just as much at a loss as I am! If it happens again we'll look at other tests like the stress test to see what all is going on. I said that I don't know how I'd do that since I don't run LOL. As far as the exercise induced neurocardiogenic syncope symptoms (nurse never actually showed him my message but he skimmed it there in the room) he gave a couple of ideas. Add some salt to my water that I'm drinking with my workouts so that I'm replenishing salt while losing it with the sweat. Also, get another fan to keep me cooler. I told him that I might knock it over with all my bouncing around during the workouts LOL.
My primary workout program this week was the 21 Day Fix. The GPS wasn't working on my phone so the mileage wasn't recorded during my walk Wednesday. Saturday morning I did Jillian Michaels Cardio Kickboxing to try and combat whatever I was going to eat at the neighbor's.
The cookout at the neighbor's went well. I was chilly the whole night for some reason; everyone else was at least comfortable. Several of us were devoured by insects; my legs almost look like I have a rash with so many bites. Hydrocortisone doesn't stop the itching for me anymore so I had to find something else. I discovered this Calagel® Medicated Anti-itch Gel at Dollar General and it appears to be working. I put it on Monday night and I was able to sleep without itching. I reapplied it during my lunch yesterday then forgot it on my desk so I was itchy all night LOL.
What do you use to treat insect bites?
