Sniffle Sniffle... yep the cold has taken over, my body's way of saying-STOP. Guess I've been pushing hard again, a lot of yoga, a lot of work, the funeral last week... stress on all sides. So, I punked out of yoga tonight and will opt for martini's with work friends tomorrow instead of an official class. Sometimes yoga asana really isn't what my body and mind need. Ever feel that way?
On another topic, I thought I'd indulge in another Overshare, this one being an update. I've debated whether I should write about this, as I know some people who read my blog... but finally my sense of honesty, transparency and basically my belief in the importance of the 'Null Hypothesis' won out. This post is for all of you who have wished when you searched the interweb *someone* had written about what did not work...
The Crystal or Rock Deodorant... a (failed) update.
You may remember my overshare about how excited Andrew and I were about the salt rock deodorant stick. I wrote about how awesome it was, how it actually eliminated my sweat stink!! I was an immediate convert.
This lasted about two weeks. And then... they started to itch... and burn. 'Oh, it's nothing, probably just dry skin'. Uh huh. When my beautiful underarms were angry blotches of pink I sucked up my pride and paid a trip to the doctor.
To my complete and utter humiliation (which I cannot believe I am sharing with the interweb world) she informed me that... it was... gulp.... fungus. Hide my head in embarrassment, crawl under a rock and squint my eyes shut. Cause? Too much sweat. Seriously.
Sadly, icky, chemical filled cream was prescribed and within a few weeks it was all cleared up. The damage was done though, I had switched back to aluminum, pore blocking deodorant. 'At least Andrew is still a Salt Rock Believer' I thought.
Until... his armpits turned red and stinky and blotchy. Great.
Now we are both back on the anti-persperant. Honestly, I'm nervous to give it another go. However, it will definitely happen again...
Hopefully this completely embarrassing tale will help someone else out there who may have also experienced something similar.... Or I just officially classified myself as taking one for Team EcoYogini Blog.
