According to the Dermatologist at Park Nicollet, I do indeed have a Fungal Infection (a/k/a Ringworm).  Plus an allergic reaction to said fungus.  I’ve been prescribed two weeks of Terbinafine HCL 250 mg.  There is to be no alcohol for these two weeks.

My itching rash was pretty awful this morning.  Itching and weeping like crazy.  For some reason, I decided to try Melaleuca’s “Dermatin” Antifungal cream.  Instant relief!  WTF?!?!?!  Not that I’m complaining, but geezzzzz.  Ringworm?  Is it possible I’ve had f*cking RINGWORM since last November?  Doesn’t this look an awful lot like this?  I had a refresher golf lesson.  Wow!  I needed that.  Now, I must find some time to practice.

My Trainer was sick this morning, and I managed 45 minutes of Pilates all by myself.  Yay, me!

Weights with Kristin @ TheMarsh.  I wish the IRS would cough up my tax refund so I can shop for a new cooktop/exhaust fan.  I set off my smoke detector (several times) cooking my dinner.  I think I also need to consider that coconut oil is not appropriate for frying sweet potatoes.

WeightControlMath:  Last week I consumed an average of 1845 calories per day, carefully tracked at MyNetDiary.com.  I lost .83 pounds, which is a 415 daily calorie deficit (according to The Hacker’s Diet).  According to Garmin, I burned 1229 calories walking.  Plus whatever was burned in 2 hours of Pilates and 2 Weight Training Sessions.

After breakfast, Steve did some home office chores and I walked the dogs:  57:50, 3.12 miles, 3.2 mph, SPM=114, HR=134.  Then we went to the arboretum for another walk: 58:58, 2.79 miles, 2.8 mph, SPM=100, HR=117.  A little bit of lunch.  Soaked up some sunshine out on the deck.   We enjoyed pizza and movie night at Bob and Anita’s home.

I met with Trainer Mary this afternoon.  As I had hoped, even after all these years, there are new things to learn!

Neighborhood Dog Walking:  1:01:22, 3.25 miles, 3.2 mph, SPM=112, HR=121.  I went to see my Dad.  He’s in quarantine, I’m not sure why and he wasn’t helpful.  Out of respect for my compromised immune system, I didn’t stay long.

The PredniSONE 5 MG definitely has an effect on my sleep and my hydration.  Text “STOP” to 48369 to disable iMessage.
