In the past ten years I have been up (240) and down (135) the scale time and again. This time I am on the 'up' side of the scale. I want to loose the weight. I figure the humiliation of putting this on the internet and the friends that I have told of this to hold me accountable just might make this happen. It is going to take a lot of encouragement and support. Not to mention the hard work on my part. Follow my struggle here.

Here in Green Country the mercury is rising. I have always been particularly vulnerable to the heat. I don’t know if this is a genetic thing or what. My face flushes easily and I just get h-o-t. I am not much of a sweat machine - which now is beginning to worry me. On days I will be running I push the h2o like crazy. I drink water, propel and lemon aid like it is going out of style. Now we are just beginning to touch the 90F mark and I know that the 100F + days are looming on the horizon.

My afternoon runs are quickly becoming more of a 'trot' than a 'run'. Sister Mary Beth mentioned Salt Tablets as a way to beat the heat. Since that time this is something I have been kicking around and have not yet arrived at a verdict if this is for me. What about you? How do you beat the heat, what tips or tricks can you offer?
