Food: Bad all day, I don’t wanna talk about it. Suffice to say pancakes were involved (from the delightful Chole’s Cafe in Noe Valley.)
Of course, failing the ‘Pre-gaming, night out challenge‘ meant I was battling an additional challenge on Day 11.
The Hangover Challenge.
Question – is it possible for anyone to pass the hangover challenge? I would say it’s only possible if you’re too sick to eat. At least you force yourself into a calorie deficit. Healthy, right? Emmm.
No need to elaborate on the details of how I failed this challenge, you’ve all been there.
My coping mechanism for this going forward is to not fail the fecking challenge the night before.
Orrrrr, if disaster does strike again, I found these interesting tips from one of my fave sites mindbodygreen.com on how to get over a hangover the healthy way!
- Coconut water (agreed – if you can stomach it.)
- Regular water (obvious, but get as much down as possible, just force yourself!)
- Asparagus (!?!)
- Yoga (My friend Marie is a huge fan of this!)
- I’ve also heard watermelon has all the vitamins you need to cure a hangover.
Or just getting a hug from your mama or loved ones helps. That’s what I did.
We also went for a mani pedi in Noe Valley. I was very pleased with the job the Rainbow Nail Spa did!
