New blender!

Standard

20150816_170947

I bought a new blender. My last one stopped working. I bought the exact same blender…but I had the last one for a year and a half before it stopped working and it was less than $15 and the top turns into a glass to drink from, so it seemed like a good buy. It’s nice to have a blender again.

On a related note, I learned I’m allergic to blackberries.

Because my body just hates me

Standard

So, lately while working out, and for a while after, my body just itches like crazy. Everywhere. I’ve tried taking a shower and changing my clothes immediately afterward, but that doesn’t seem to help.

I googled it, and it seems that it could be caused by a circulatory issue, or possibly even that my body starts producing histamine when I start working out. I have no idea. I’m going to ask my doctor about it on Thursday. It’s driving me nuts.

I might try taking an antihistamine to see if that helps at all. I’m just concerned it will put me to sleep. I don’t know if falling asleep (missing out on more workout time) is worth eliminating the itch. Hmm…
