Confused

So I get these hives.  It is kind of a bummer.  I thought I understood these hives.  But I am realizing more and more that I do not know about my hives.  I used to think that I got hives whenever I would sweat or get hot or get stressed or ...  However, now I am finding some loopholes.  Today: I walked 1.5 blocks, weeded a garden for FHE for less than an hour then walked back to the church.  Then I walked 1.5 blocks to McDonalds (don't judge) and at McD's got hives.  Not really bad ones, but hives nonetheless.  This evening I tried Jillian's workout again.  (Deck of cards= 84 pushups, 84 lunges, 84 crunches, 84 reverse crunches.  I can explain in more detail if you really want to know).  Anyway, this is the second time I have done this workout and I have not gotten hives either time.  Seriously?  I don't understand.  I took a bike ride last monday for 30 minutes and got crazy hives.  This is all very confusing.  Hmm.  They look something like this when at full flare.  Sorry for the ugly leg shots.

The answer to all of this is Jillian Michaels. Perhaps if you do her workouts (specifically catered to the endocrinology of females), you won't get hives? She kicks my butt, man.

Perhaps the answer has something to do with H&M, too. Or Chicago. Like those things are hive-free, but McD's and FHE are not. I dunno.

Um, I'm no expert. Maybe something about humidity or what you were wearing or moisture? I had a friend get hives on the insides of her arms when she ran and we figured it was a very moist and very irritated location. How that would explain them all over your legs I haven't figured out yet. Good luck!

That sucks, who knows what the 'right' combo of circumstances is to create the uber-hives!? Good luck!

I was thinking maybe it is something in the air outside that causes it. Maybe a pollen or something. I don't know.
