[img_assist|nid=101|title=Poison Oak - Isn't it Pretty?|desc=|link=none|align=left|width=100|height=75]As if you needed another reason to workout with me, Breakpal is germ free! If I'm sick, you'e safe!
I only bring this up because I have been suffering with poison oak this last week, as fate would have it I'm terribly allergic to it and live right in the thick of it. This week the only exercises I could do were Tai Chi breathing exercises, to visualize what health was like.
I'm back on my training regimen today and it feels great! Even missing a few days of working out changes my mood. Not to mention the side effects of medication. If you live above 5,000 feet or in a concrete jungle you may never know the pain of the poison oak. But that's O.K., I've experienced enough pain for all of us.
If you should ever be struck down by it I'd like to share my experience with you.
#1. We all touch our face far more than we think we do.
#2. We can be all "looks don't matter" until our face swells up. Then trust me vanity kicks in, hence the doctors visit.
#3. I'm a fine print reader, the cream the doctor prescribed says a side effect is a rash on the face...hmmm, that's why I'm here!
#4. I'm all for the homeopathic approach but a little more disclosure would be nice.
