Heat exhaustion

I'm new to the business and decided that I was going to wear jeans today to look more professional. After walking behind a mower for a few hours and not drinking enough water before I started working in the 104 degree heat index I started feeling symptoms of what I can only guess was heat exhaustion. I felt like I was going to throw up and got a little dizzy. My mouth was dry and I felt weak. I had to stop and go sit in my truck for a few minutes and didn't have any water with me.

I suppose I better start hydrating more. I only had coffee and no food before I started because I was in a hurry.

Maybe working mostly in an office the past few years has just made me soft, lol.
