In other news, it's July in South Carolina. A friend is working a contract in Baghdad, and he says it's well over 100 there by 8am. It's not that bad here, but wow...
So yesterday, as I was trying to at least get *some* sleep between bouts of self-motivational speaking, it was pretty hot. I haven't been drinking much water, or even soda, so I was a bit dehydrated, always fun... I picked then, for some strange reason, to finish off the last little bit of bread and (by then) stone cold soup. Well, not the last last of the soup, but the last I'd ladled out yesterday. I'm glad I don't really like lentils, 'cause if I did it'd rather suck when I give them up. But wow, I really don't want to eat them any more right now.
So when it started to cool off again, and I woke up from my "nap" I wasn't feeling really good. Not so much sick (though I'm still coughing and snotty, and all that fun stuff), as just dizzy- I really need to drink more water...
I don't get motion sick, so that wasn't the problem, but have you ever tried focusing on a computer screen when it's kinda swimming in front of you? No fun.
I wasn't interested in heating the house up more at that point, so I didn't get up to cook again until about 2am (I'm noticing a bit of a pattern here), and by then I wasn't interested in anything fancy. So I made the rather odd wheat nuggets again, though they were just spicy this time, with no real attempt to make them taste like anything in particular.
Not a very healthy day. The heat kills my appetite, and I *hate* the taste of water- even running it through the britta pitcher doesn't help. I don't want to make it all into tea- that much sugar would kill me. And the only way I've ever been able to really choke it down regularly, ice-cold with lemon, is more work and expense than I'm really interested in or able to sustain.
Anyone manage the drinking more water thing? I know I should just do it, but... guh, it tastes bad.
