how do you deal with this humid heat with no AC?
i need for mine will arrive tomorrow.
it will be switched on, and not turned off until we leave the dock.
i cant even work inside. its so hot.
lucky for me we have two AC units.
both will be repaired.
a 6K unit for when underway, and a 16K for when docked.
i have no idea how you can live without AC when it is blistering outside.
is it my Russian genes?
Scoobert, I don't mean to be rude, but your weight is contributing to the problem. But the person who suggested getting in the water was also a good suggestion.
Do you have a wind scoop? Even in a marina, they can be angled to catch the breeze.
I would urge you to "do the math" about weight loss. It takes 3500 extra calories to gain one pound. That means 35,000 extra calories (not burned) to gain 10 lb. in a year, not uncommon.
I took that number and divided it by 365. The answer is 91.
In other words, if your weight is stable, reduce your income
by only 91 calories a day, and you'll lose 10 lb. in a year. That's half a hamburger bun -- more than that if you skip the bottom one, because that one absorbs juices from the hamburger. So yeah -- you have to eat your hamburger with a knife and fork.
The UPSIDE of eating too much is that there are more places to cut back. Check the calories on flavored drinks. A 12 oz. can of coca cola is 144 calories. There might be other choices that are just as palatable but have fewer calories. If you put lots of butter on your mashed potatoes, just cut the serving in half and add some carrots so you don't feel hungry.
I know you didn't ask for that, but most people haven't done the math.
