Today is day 6! Yay me!!
I've done a pretty good job about staying on track with my food. One of the days I did go over my calorie limit, but that was because I had one more piece of whole wheat bread than I should have.
I've only added exercise to my daily regime over the last 2 days. My dogs are completely psyched to see what the world looks like outside of our backyard. Google says that I only burned 100 calories in a half an hour walking the dogs. Well, Google, unfortunately my dogs are not used to being on a leash. And one of them is a puppy. Soooo... I'm going to double that number. Trust me, 200 calories is still being conservative.
And then there's the water. Ahem.
I have the world's tiniest bladder to begin with. The taste of water (or lack thereof) does not bother me at all. I actually prefer water to soda. But drinking 8 glasses of water a day is asking a lot of me.
The small bladder makes it impossible to go anywhere. I can't be away from the bathroom for more than a half hour (mayyybe a whole hour). When watching The Biggest Loser the other night, I had to pause it 3 times to use the bathroom. It's ridiculous.
Well, this morning my husband explained to me that the glasses I have been using are actually 16 ounces. Doh! I'm a semi-intelligent person, but for some reason, I didn't know what 8 ounces looked like.
Basically, I've been struggling to choke down 16 glasses a day.
Needless to say... I don't think I'll have a problem with my daily water goal anymore.

    I loved this blog! I could see myself in so many ways at one time of my life or another. I also struggle with water and bladder issues, but I'm home most of the time so it's no big deal for me. However, tomorrow I'm going on a day trip that is 1 1/2 hrs one way==should be interesting!! emoticon

    I had another Spark buddy who had the same water/bladder issue you just blogged about; so you are not alone in this little learning curve. Congrats on figuring out the water issue so quickly; and good for you and the puppies getting out and walking.

    Tee-hee! No wonder you were struggling. I'm sure you'll be fine now and be able to leave the house without the use of a cath bag!

    What a hoot! Water is my downfall - no way could I drink as much as you have. Good luck to you. Thanks for sharing!

    Haha, thanks for the smile. But if you can do 16 why not?? I drink at least 12 daily. The more the better, but I hear you about the bladder thing . . . . .
