This morning I woke up extra early to pull out my kettlebell weights that have been neglected the past two months. My newborn is 2 months old now, delectable Christmas temptations are behind me, and it's time to get this body back in shape.
It took a little getting used to my old routine and I don't remember this particular workout wearing me out as much as it did today, but it feels so good to be back on track again. I'm a size 8 living in a size 12 body and I want my 8 back.
An hour later I was cracking eggs for breakfast and I realized how painful the palms of my hands felt. Small calluses were beginning to form, even after just one workout.
I grabbed my Beesilk hard lotion bar and that took care of it - it minimized the pain (still had some pain, but not nearly as bad as it first was) and smoothed the skin. Had I thought about it, I would have rubbed the Beesilk bar on about 10 minutes before my workout since I'm fairly confident that the beeswax-sealing properties would have prevented calluses from starting in the first place. I'll try that next.
