If you’ve been paying attention, you know that last night I was on a boat for ShoeDazzle’s first anniversary office party. If you haven’t been paying attention, it’s still true; and I’m beyond exhausted. Ergo: this Fitness Friday is dedicated to fighting fatigue. I was yawning while typing this.

The number one way to fight fatigue is to exercise. What? I know. The last thing I want to do is stop watching “The Golden Girls” and head to the gym, but apparently it will help me feel less dead. No jokes about dead Golden Girls.

Eat the breakfast. I used the modifier “the” to reiterate the importance of a meal I rarely—if ever—eat. I’ve mentioned before that the most overlooked meal of the day can help you fight heart disease and obesity; but it can also keep you from falling asleep on your keyboard at work. ers.dfhizkjhzsdk.j: that’s what I typically type when my head hits the keys—probably because I didn’t eat THE breakfast. Lesson learned.

Sleep more. This one seems like a no-brainer, but I know that I often pretend I’m going to sleep when, actually, I’m going to update my FaceBook status, text, and tweet. @RichyTweets is sleepy. What’s more important—people knowing I’m sleepy or me getting sleep? Toss up.

Iron. No; not your clothes. I do, however, blame my seat belt for obvious wrinkles when I don’t feel like ironing—that’s a good tip. Seriously though, anemia is not cool and makes you tired. Get your fill of iron from liver (gross), shellfish (butter), and beans (refried). Ignore everything in parentheses.

Decaffeinate. As counterintuitive as it seems, caffeine can make you extra tired when it wears off. I’m a diet coke fanatic, so I’m saying this as much to myself as I am to you. Just make sure you ease up slowly; otherwise, you’ll crash midday.

The boat party was really fun and I’m paying for it now. I hope your Friday is energetic and devoid of seasickness.
