Remedies for super dry hands? Tracking food advice?
Thursday, January 09, 2014
So I work in child care and wearing gloves to change diapers comes along with the territory, but in the wintertime my hands get SUPER DRY and cracked and even bleed and just physically hurt even when I'm not wearing the gloves. I don't know what scabies is, but from what I picture in my mind that is exactly what my hands look like. Like I've been stabbed by a million tiny razors.
I've tried SO many different lotions but my hands are so bad that even the unscented ones sting my hands upon application. I've tried straight up vaseline but same thing. I am at a loss and yet my hands are KILLING me.
Does anyone know any remedies for dry hands?
On a separate note, I've been really slacking on tracking my food. I do the mental check and I know roughly how many calories I've consumed and I honestly don't feel that bad about it because 90% of what I'm taking in is good for me (the other 10% being processed, but not necessarily BAD foods...). I'm struggling with this in my head because I feel like tracking and measuring out foods will help, but I don't want to be bound to it and obsess over it for the rest of my life and feel it's the only way to see results.
What do you guys do when it comes to tracking/measuring? Track religiously? Do a mental check? Not track at all and just eat whatever? I seriously need some advice so I can stop feeling guilty about not tracking.
