Water, How much is enough ?

Saturday, July 13, 2013

emoticon After many failed attempts at meeting a goal of 8 cups of water a day I finally found a to get my water for the day .

I carry a gallon of water with me , sounds crazy . I am sure you have seen it or if not you do it your self .

I average a gallon a day and sometimes more . In the beginning it used to be forced. I would hate to drink the water and now its normal . I drink when I am thirsty and when I feel like I wanted to eat , most times I am just thirsty . I have learned the difference between feed me now and I am bored so lets eat emoticon
Though I still have my moments .

So water how much is enough ? How much do you have to drink to keep from being thirsty ?

I'm asking this because for the past 2 days I have gone to bed and awaken thirsty , I drink and yet I am still thirsty . emoticon

I take my blood pressure pill every day , 100mg losartan . I have been paying attention to my salt intake and i cook all my foods now . I desperately try to not add any extra salt to anything and my beloved hot sauce , i actually measure that out to only 1sp emoticon

Okay so I am probably freaking out just a tad bit but maybe being thirsty is a good thing instead of being hungry ?

Anyways , despite my concern for my thirst I am happy to say that I get my water a day .

I remember struggling to get the minimum amount of water. I cant not even say how many reusable water bottles I went through or filter bottles . Brita, Bobble , Plastic Reusable Bottles.

Drinking from a gallon jug has for sure been key to me . In hawaii we dont get money for the gallon jugs if you recycle. Most times I just recycle it anyways . I have a few friends that are teachers and they find ways to use it for arts and craft projects.

Today I am at work till 315, costco trip after work . Then home to do laundry and play with my treadmill. Planning on doing 30 mins on a 5% incline .

Nothing special today .

What are you planning for the weekend ?

Working weekends , has its drawbacks and I hope one day I can find a job where I have weekends off .

Tues , my heart rate monitor comes in , I hope it fits my wrist . that is the 2nd thing I cant not wait for ! . FAT WRIST BE GONE ! along with chubby cheeks and fat eyes . I swear I think my eyes are bigger , but you cant tell with the chubby cheeks and heavy eyelids ..

oh fatgirlproblems emoticon you shall be gone one day some day

    Hey if it works, it works. If you have to carry water around like a camel, so be it. Good job.

    The interesting thing about thirst is that it comes from the same area of the brain that sends out hunger signals - many times when we think we are hungry we are actually thirsty.

    I really have no idea how much is too much and how much is enough water. I usually drink between 8 and 12 cups a day. This amount helps me get my steps in everyday because I have to go to the bathroom all the time!

    When you wake up thirsty, try drinking warm or hot water. I find that helps calm my "thirst" without feeling like I need to guzzle enough to feel bloated. Might be just psychological, but it works for me.
