Back to the routine

Quote du jour: Being Irish, he had an abiding sense of tragedy which sustained him through temporary periods of joy.
- Yeats (attrib.)

Why does a headache leave you feeling as drained as if you'd indulged in an orgy of debauchery? If I'd known I was going to have a hangover, I would've gone out on the town, damn it.

Oh well. Another day, another dollar cliché exercise goal.

Exercise du jour: 4 miles walking, 15 minutes elliptical.
Semi-win. Did 3 miles walking. Yes, the headache came back. I am nearly positive that it's caused by dehydration. The workplace humidity is kept unnaturally low, to make the products feel better. They do provide extra drinking water stations to make the people feel better, and a round-trip walk to the closest one is a 1/4 mile walk, so it's not too bad. So long as I remember to keep drinking. Slacked off this afternoon, and lo! The headache returned this evening like an old friend. The kind who owes you money and sits around on your couch drinking your beer and watching shows you hate.

Save the cliches for Cliche Day -- on the 3rd -- if you want. Then you can use as many as you want.

Good luck on the exercise.

Headaches and hangovers are the worst. Sleep and hydration are you only hopes. Good luck!

Yes, both sleep and hydration are helping. I just need to keep going.

MessyM, I love the idea of Cliche day! Must try to think up some good cliches to use then.

There's a Cliche Day?! Oh man, I don't know how I feel about this...

Rest and water, always a very good idea! Whew, so glad it wasn't the chocolate to blame.
