I Hate Water, Its AWESOME

Wednesday, January 16, 2013

I'm Back! I havent been around for a while, and it shows. I have gained back pretty much everything i had lost in the past. UGH! I'm tired of being tired, and miserable all the time. I'm tired of my feet hurting, and my back hurting, and my joints and of my clothes not fitting me anymore, and Black Stretch Pants are TOTALLY SEXY! I need to document what it feels like, so i can go back to this one day when i am feeling like giving up and REMEMBER how much it sucks to feel like this. I am 27 years old, i shouldnt be waddling around the store at work. Yes i said Waddle, because when my feet hurt .. about halfway through my shift.. i start to waddle. So i decided it was about time to stop whining about it, and start doing something about it again.

I went back and looked at all my old meal plans and exercise routines. Sh!t, that looks daunting. There is no way that i can go back to what i was doing at my lowest weight. SO why even bother.... Then i realized that i had to b!tchslap that thought down. NO! It might be daunting, it might be hard, it might suck sometimes... but its going to be so worth it! So i decided to wipe the slate clean and start over, and use my old plans as the simple fact that i HAVE done it before, and i CAN do it again. I'm going start slow, this week i am solely concentrating on tracking my food, no matter what it is. And i am going to drink 14 cups of water a day.

Which brings me to my Title. I am currently sitting here, staring at my last 3 cups of water that i need to drink today. I had forgotten how much it sucks to go from not drinking enough water and being dehydrated to being fully hydrated and your body craving that much liquid. I feel like if i move i am going to Slosh! I remember this from before, this alone is a great motivator to not have to start over EVER AGAIN!


I'm down to 2 cups now, have you ever noticed that water just stops tasting good after a while. I'm to that point. And i dont like Mio and juice flavored stuff in my water. I'm seriously beginning to question how i liked water in the past. Did i not have taste buds back then?


1 cup to go... I think i can, I think i can, i think i can!!! I dont WANT to.. but i THINK I CAN!


THANK GOD! Its gone! i got my 14 cups in today... and tomorrow i get to start over again. I need to pace myself better throughout the day. I honestly feel like if you held me up to your ear.. you would hear the Ocean. I am sloshing big time! But i know that water is so good for your body, and your health. So even though I'm hating it right now... Its Awesome! Gotta love those small victory baby steps! Day 1 - Goals Accomplished! WOOHOO!

    Maybe you could start with fewer cups of water and work your way up to 14? After all, there's no evidence you need that much in a day, though it does help cut down appetite if you're full of water.

Yes, what you were doing at your lowest weight IS daunting, but I bet you worked up to that. Work up to it again. As you are doing with your food tracking, you can start slowly. You know from the first time that this isn't an overnight thing. This is a lifestyle change, so baby steps are fine because baby steps add up.

Welcome back, by the way! The only failure is giving up and you haven't given up!

    You can do this. emoticon A good percentage of us are just like you. Been up and down on those scales so often there should be skid marks on them. emoticon
The water does seem daunting. But you are on top of it. You GO GIRL.
Just remember the big plan. Get plenty of sleep, smile and go fo it!!
