    Re: Shakey weak and fatigue in the middle of detail?

    for everyone since this summer officially starts this weekend.
    organic gatoraid: (gator aid really is just salt and sugar in flavoring)

    another variation

    Make Your Own Electrolyte Energy Drink | Everyday Roots

    or just to help your water out (you can add the common salt and sugar all these refer to if you want) My daughter makes this stuff and I end up drinking most of it.
    drink infused waters?

    1. Green tea, mint, and lime - For fat burning, digestion, headaches, congestion and breath freshener.

    2. Strawberry and kiwi - For cardiovascular health, immune system protection, blood sugar regulation, digestion.

    3. Cucumber, lime, and lemon - For water weight management, bloating, appetite control, hydration, digestion

    4. Lemon, lime, and orange - For digestion vitamin C, immune defense, heartburn, (Drink this one at room temperature)

    Infused waters are good for detoxification energy and hydration. Put as much fruit in water as you like and let the water sit for at least 30 minutes before drinking.

    You should get your blood sugar checked. Oh by the way try being 60 and detailing like me. You have a long way to go.

    Re: Shakey weak and fatigue in the middle of detail?

    As has been mentioned, drink lots of water. If you aren't peeing at least once an hour, you're not drinking enough.

    I have a simple formula that works for me. First thing I do is plan ahead to spend the entire day detailing the car. I start early in the morning before the heat of the day. I typically do the inside first since the interior can get pretty dang hot in the summer. Then I wash the car and dry it. I let the sun completely dry it, then move it into the garage and take a break. It's typically getting close to lunch time by now so I take a break.

    I then begin detailing the exterior. I take my time and take frequent breaks. It's not uncommon for me to finish the car late in the afternoon or if I feel like I'm starting to rush due to fatigue, I quit for the day and finish the next morning.

    Hahaha It's so hot and humid down here in Florida, last summer I did a 4 hour detail, drank 17 bottles of water and never peed! I drink a lot of water daily anyway, not a soda drinker, but that was one for the record books.

    It sounds like your body is spent like numerous people have said. From wrestling I have been through it all with weight cutting and the exercise load. Don't worry about drinking Gatorade as much as water. Gatorade is mostly sugar, which will actually make your stomach upset. Eat good food, and snack throughout the day. Eat things such as nuts and what not. Drink water a day at least in advanced and don't be afraid of things with salt as it helps retain water in your body.

    Also eat more fruit then you may be eating before the detail like oranges or bananas or apples, it will help with the vitamins and electrolytes to fuel you're body for a long time.

    Yes sounds like low blood sugar. You could keep some Skittles around and if you have low blood sugar this should help.
