Things have been busy! As for walking in winter - for me winter is pretty mild compared to the conditions many of you experience! But the darker for longer does impact with shorter days. I did also find that some days we just did it - walking in the dark (only when with my friend) and others I did a you-tube clip for the cardio.
Haha you sound like me - we have so many beautiful walking areas around here that I don't do - because I worry about the snakes too!
This week is ugh! I have not had the time for my walking, by eating is slightly off and I think peri-menopause is playing with my cycle again which means I have not lost what I wanted to lose by the end of October and have even slightly increased since last week. I am so finding this small yoyoing right near the the 90kg barrier so frustrating - I think mentally if I could just get under 90kg that would feel like an achievement and help with the journey! Right now I feel like I am stuck in the 90s (and not in a good way haha).
In other news - my scratch test was not all that helpful - I reacted to the dust mites - but I don't experience symptoms to that in my day to day life at the moment. Once dot was done right down near my wrist but then it made it hard to see and he thought there may have been a very slight sensitivity to egg whites - but also felt that the level of reaction on my skin did not indicate it was coming into play in the reactions I have had after eating! So there we have it - I know alot of things I didn't react to and nothing of what food I need to avoid. I did get some of the himalayan salt from the care and he mixed it with water and tested it too - no reaction - so if may have been from the nitrate free bacon. I have a list of most of the ingredients for the cure - so will do a comparison with Maccas and see if I can see any same ingredients - to be a little wary of.
@MickeyMom76 I hope you get some better answers than I did
It is so frustrating not knowing what you are allergic to. DD had horrible allergy symptoms for years. We could not pin point the cause nor did over the counter allergy meds work. She was always miserable with the reddest nose. She final was able to have the allergy test. She is not allergic to anything. They said she has non-allergic rhinitis. So basically she has the symptoms of allergies without being allergic to anything. She has taken singular for the last few years and it has worked wonders. If she misses a dose she can tell and starts to get congested again. I feel it has also helped when she has gotten colds. They seem to be much milder. I hope you both find some answers and so reliefI was just logging in to check in with you to see how you made out! So sorry it didn't give you answers. I'm feeling a little anxious about tomorrow since it is the first day I have to stop all my allergy medications because of the testing on Tuesday. And this week has been worse in terms of sinus pressure, congestion, and headaches. And that's while I'm on my allergy meds. Plus tomorrow brings extra excitement in kindergarten with it being Halloween. And Saturday is my nephews first birthday, so I don't want to be all allergy miserable. But I'm also trying to stay positive and hoping all of that will just distract me from all of the allergy symptoms.
