Workout hangover
I had to go to Quinn's swimming class feeling like I needed a little "hair of the dog." Last night was 1 hour, 1 minute, and four secondsa on the elliptical, at an average of 153 bpm target, for a total of 914 calories and 7.9 pseudo-miles.

There was one problem--I had not had my usual quota of water, and I ended up substantially dehydrated. I didn't feel too bad last night--yay endorphins. This morning I had a classic "hangover" headache and felt like bottled, pickled death...thank goodness prettypammie is home!!! She got Quinn dressed and breakfastd. I could have done it--but it would have sucked rabbit testes.

Crazy week, much to say--later when I have time, energy, and inspiration. Party for Quinn's class-mate tomorrow. Pam has plans for me this afternoon, I think.

I need to upload passels of pics--it's been months; Pam and I are way behind.


a Interrupted for a few minutes at 41:04 to go to the baby-sitting room to handle a little bathroom emergency. Things happen.

Current Mood: tired

When I took A+P in college, the first lesson was "how to treat a hangover." I'm sure you know the drill. But in teaching us this, his implicit statement was "knowing this, you damn well better be happily warming a seat in my class _every day._"

actually, all I really know is "stop whining and get re-hydrated.'

Any further advice you have is welcome.

pre-hydrate. 1 canteen of water approx 10-15 min before workout. Afterwards, lots of lean-protein and water.

to help with weight loss, big meals in the early and mid-day, light on the dinner, unless you work out in the morning... Then eat lots of carbs before bed.

Glad Pam is back in town to help out. Hate those complete lack of sick days that come with the parenting gig!!
Feel better!

no sick days--but we do have backup...

We're really lucky in two ways: one, an expensive (but 100% reliable, so far) during-the-day on-call baby-sitting service and an inexepensive (also 100% reliable) "third grandma" in Ntina.

That said, there's noone but mom and dad for driving Quinn to swimming lessons...lately unless I'm out of town, that's been me. Every so often Pam isn't going for a horsing around session and I can make my pitiful moo-cow eyes at her and sneak a few extra hours of zzzzzzz's while she goes.

Someday young Q is going to read your archived posts and tell you off for the "bathroom emergency" comments. Just so you're prepared...

H's first "Daaaaad" was when she was 3 years old (and mostly calling him "Daddy.") It made him feel old. I'm looking forward to C's comments about my own posts...
