The heat is killing me this year

Tuesday, July 29, 2008

It's been really hot in Utah this summer and it is killing me. I'm not working so I'm not spending 10 hours a day in a/c. I only have a small a/c in the bedroom and I refuse to spend all day in there. I have stuff to do. I have been spending part of some days at the library to work on my resume and cover letters; and to work on MySQL stuff. It seems to be working some what; but I every time I walk outside I break into a sweat that is unreal.

It's so not like me. I don't have much energy; I know it's possible it's related to the MS but I can't exactly walk into an interview pouring sweat; it's unseemly. It has been getting cooler @ night so I am able to sleep better.

I'm putting myself on a new schedule beginning tomorrow; not working has really taken me out of a set routine and I don't like it. I'm sleeping too late, not getting to the gym enough. So I'm heading off to bed early tonight and working with my trainer tomorrow morning.

    The heat always bothers me. The ms society can help you get cooling products and even air conditioners. I got cooling products from them, they help alot. Good luck dealing with the heat. emoticon

    Make sure you drink your water everyday! It is essential in this dry heat that we have here in UT. I know people here do not realize just how dry it is and the impact on your energy levels. If you have been in the midwest where it is 80% humidity with 100 degree temperatures then you would realize the difference.

    So drink at least 8 glasses. I try to drink water constantly and add an extra glass of water for each 30 minutes I work out.

    But I agree . . . it is tough getting out of bed when you fall to sleep late. You have the right attitude so I know you can do it!
