It's been a while since I've checked in on everyone to see how you are doing with the Freeze Yer Buns Challenge. We've had another cold snap and going outside has been dreadful - I was getting used to warmer temperatures.
Now, it's not like we are having Arctic weather or anything, I'm just mostly unprepared when I go outside. And the strep probably doesn't help. I don't think I'm regulating my body temperature properly right now.
I've still been cheating a little and keeping the temperature (when we are home) closer to 65 during the day (mostly because of the complaints), but at night and when we leave the house, we are still at 58. In fact, I've been overdressing going to bed that I keep waking up completely soaked in sweat. Like last night.
And, if I let my husband control the thermostat during the day, the house becomes a veritable oven at 68 degrees. I can't handle it - it's too hot for me. I honestly start feeling queasy I'm so hot.
If I keep this up, I'll have nighttime dehydration from loss of body fluids. Tonight I'll go to sleep in a t-shirt and fleece pants. I have a down comforter and a wool blanket (that I knit) on my side of the bed that I usually huck off about 2:00 a.m. because it gets too toasty.
So, how are you handling your lowered temperatures? Have you acclimated yet?
