the problem with water
Tuesday, January 15, 2013
Okay, it's not a topic you read about often, and may be TMI for some, but how the heck are perimenopausal women who have birthed 3 babies supposed to drink 8-8oz. glasses of water everyday and not pee themselves when they exercise?? Seriously! I'm all for hydration, and when I was actively losing I relied on water a lot to keep me feeling full. But, for crying out loud, how many times in a Jillian Michael's 30-day Shred segment can you hit pause and run off to the potty?? Four, evidently
While my morning run is usually not a factor, I have to monitor my daily water intake on days I know I'm going to be doing any kind of up-and-down movement in my afternoon workout. Yesterday, I guess I didn't monitor closely enough. And it's not that my bladder gets full and is about to burst, it only takes an imminent dribble to send me off to the powder room.
So it's all well and good for perky, childless 20-year-olds with bladders of steel to get their 64oz in. For me, I need to scale it back if I don't want to be doing extra laundry!
Anybody else have this problem?
