Pour yourself a glass of slenderizing water - now!

Monday, January 14, 2013

Drink your water!!!

...but, pace it.

One of my new years 'goals' (i hate the word resolution) is to really try to get my water intake where it should be. Thing is, if COFFEE counted towards one's water goal I'd be considered the most hydrated person in the world! But a regular glass of water? I'm horrible.


Anyhoo yesterday I was out most of the day and got in later in the evening and wouldn't you know it my water ounceage was flatline, so I started drinking. I put on the DVR and said to myself "Everytime there is a commercial I will take five big gulps."


Needless to say, by the end of my 'recommended 63 ounces', I felt like I cartoon character waiting for someone with a pin to stick my belly and have a fountain of water come out.

I don't even want to say how many 'trips to the little girls room' i had to take overnight.

NOT the ideal way of drinking water.

But I did it. I got my goal yesterday. Better late than never.

But today - I am totally pacing myself.

The moral of the story is... start drinking your water now, you DONT want to have last minute cramming, and it's good for you!!! :)

    I'm assuming my water need, arbitrary or not, is more than zero, which is where I was at. emoticon

    Your water needs change every day, even every hour, depending on many metabolic factors. There is no correct amount you need to drink every day; no daily quota.
You should never force yourself to reach arbitrary water consumption goals.

    Once you get used to drinking it you actually crave it. You will get there. Slow and steady all day long and you will have your 64oz in in no time.

    I hate that feeling and I sometimes find myself doing the same thing. Hope you find a water intake system that works for you. I always start with water and try to to an extra few ounces right after my work out.

    Yup - I start my day with a glass of water. And drink throughout the day. The end of the day stuff kills a good night of sleep!

    Thank you. I was at work this morning purusing the spark blogs (I know, I should be working) and I saw the title of your blog. I walked my way down the hall and filled a 16 oz cup of ice water which I drank while reading your blog. I did have about 5 cups of java already, I really wish that counted. emoticon
