dance hangover

  • Aug 8th, 2016 at 7:18AM

I never drink alcohol when I dace. Quite honestly, it's because I'm quite clumsy and would end up breaking an ankle or falling on my face. Ever the graceful girl. My husband marvels at how I can balance and spin several times on one foot but trip walking up the stairs. Yep, I'm that awesome!

Anyway, I took a Cowboy Cha cha class last night (stop laughing) then stayed to dance the night away. All in all it was 7 hours of dancing. Boom, cardio met. I thought I was being good about drinking plenty of water. They conveniently have a big fan placed by the water jugs so I thought I was loitering there a lot. Unfortunately, when I woke up this morning, I felt like I had been hit by a truck. It was as though I had a hangover, minus the nausea.

So is a hangover mostly dehydration from alcohol? Or am I just old and can't dance until 1am anymore? Perhaps next time I'll be that girl with my Nalgene bottle of water on the side next to everyone's beer.

I think a hangover is mostly dehydration! That's why I usually stick to a rule of "one drink, one water" if I'm imbibing. 7 hours of dancing! Wow!!!

      Are you sure it was water and not vodka? I love the fact that you do all that dancing.

      Looking great in that pic!!

        @Tara - great rule! Totally bringing my big water bottle tonight.
        @Tahera - dancing is my therapy. It is where I find peace and center my soul.
        @George - oh man, wait so Grey Goose isn't a water company? That explains so much :o)
