Sometimes you drink and drink and drink, and sometimes you fall.

And if what you're drinking and drinking and drinking is alcoholic, the two events may just be related. But I'm talking about water, a substance that I'd had, until recently, real issues with in terms of drinking 8 cups per day. Lately, I've managed to do so, even if a couple of days required a late night glass (or two!) that may or may not have led to my waking up in the middle of the night and having to take a leak. The title of this blog comes from my realization, just now, that I've only managed to put away two glasses of water by 6:30 PM.
Frankly, it's due to just not noticing. I don't actively feel thirsty, I don't drink. And maybe I'm just a naturally well hydrated person, just like Sally Brown had her naturally curly hair. Whatever the reason, the lack of active thirst is largely responsible for my failure to drink 8 cups of water for more of the time I've been on the site. Over the past two weeks, I've made it a point to drink that water regardless. Haven't really seen any difference, really, my skin hasn't miraculously blossomed, my hair hasn't turned lustrous, and I certainly haven't suddenly smashed through the weight plateau. But I've done it anyway, and plan to do so, more or less, going forward. Today's just going to have to be one of those "less" days, cuz I don't feel like facing the H2O bloat of cramming down 50 aqua oz in the next few short hours.
