Last Saturday I was out in the 90s degree heat for an outside birthday party.
There was no water available for most of the afternoon and finally at about 6:30 I finally got somethign to eat and drink.
I have hypoglycemia and if I don't eat regularly I start feeling faint. Sadly, no one told me the food was going to cost me money and I had to go across town to the party and needed what money I had to put gas into my car.
So.. getting home was pretty sketchy.. I didn't even think I was going to make it, and no one at the party, probably would of helped me get home, so I was basically on my own.
Oh, did I mention I've known some of these people for years and years.. well no more parties organized by this particular guy, see it's very bad for my health.
But Sunday, I was feeling just horrible.... I know it was probably from the heat on Saturday and lack of food.. but how long does it take to get over heat stroke.
I was talking to a woman in the market I often go to.. and she said the same thing as me.. she's just not been feeling herself, sort of light-headed, not dizzy.. just not "all There".
It was a horrible heat wave and came right after all this mild spring weather int he 70s....but it was 10 days str8 of 90s and horrible humidity.
Yesterday I felt really weird too... and it has been hot on & off for the past few days. I'm eating better but the past Wednesday I was at the market and got horribly hungry and started getting weak feelign again.
I think I need a plan where I can somehow take food with me.. but what won't spoil in the heat? I was thinking somethign with protein, as that always makes me feel better but it's hot in our cars.
Has anyone else ever had heat stroke and did it take awhile to get over it??
well, anyway.. i'm trying to lose weight too, and I am overweight... but I cannot starve myself obviously.....
I did lose 2 lbs yesterday though.. I walked twice.. once in the morning for 1 mile and then again in the evening.. for 2 miles...
