Emotional Hangover

Ok... I blog sometimes about physical hangovers brought on by too much wine. But today I have an emotional hangover.

Last night hubby and I got into a whopper of a fight... bigger than we've had in ages. The result: I drank too much wine and stuffed my face. (Although I did throw an entire Pizza Hut pizza in the trash without touching a bite. This happened in the heat of the fight. It wasn't because I didn't want the pizza.... I was trying to make a point during our argument, and the pizza had to go into the trash for me to do so. But I digress.)

Anyway... once things calmed down a bit, I drank too much wine. I also ate a smushed avocado sandwich, a big bowl of rice noodle mushroom soup, a dill pickle and some brown rice crackers. Then I scarfed down some air-popped popcorn.

I could have made worse food choices. (And I'm surprised I didn't, since by that point I had almost an entire bottle of wine in me.) But it was still way too many calories to consume at once, especially late at night.

Anyway, today I am feeling the residual effects. Not so much the wine hangover, as much as the hangover from my argument with hubby. We pretty much kissed and made up, but I still feel empty and depressed about the whole thing. It's an emotional hangover, I think. I don't feel like exercising. Instead, all I wanna do is curl up on the sofa and watch TV.

I've consistently exercised every day this week--Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Saturday is my scheduled "rest" day, and if I took an extra "rest" day today I would have still exercised 5 days out of 7.

It's tempting to skip my workout. Very tempting.


I did workout. I ran/walked a mile, plus did 15 minutes of an exercise video, plus some ab work and pushups. Not an awesome workout, but at least it was something.

exercise is the best cure for an emotional hangover. The endorphins will help you think clearly. Do it. You'll feel way better.

Exercising may be the key to getting over your emotional hangover. I am glad to know that you kissed and made up.

Happy Friday!
