Drink your water!

Lately, I have been a picture of productivity. I sent off my thesis today which took a lot of work last night to finish. I am proud of it...I think I still need to go over it a couple more times before I am ready to send it out to book contests but it looks pretty good. Despite the fact that I have loved being a part of the Spalding program, I feel like I need a lot more work still on honing my skills. I also got up this morning at 5:30 and did laundry, let the dogs out, exercised, read and some other things ALL before work. So, I was proud of myself. I still have a lot left to do in the next couple of months before my graduation week in Louisville. One thing I am not too crazy about is how behind I am on my TV shows...it’s ridiculous. Thank goodness for DVR’s. I hope to catch up this week.
I ate pizza and parmesan chicken yesterday so it was a good dinner! Thanks to Oma for cooking it! I am very short on my attention span today. I can’t seem to stay focused. I have minimized this blog like 17 times...I’m writing it one sentence at a time.
The only thing I wanted to really mention today is the importance of drinking your water. I go through these phases where I don’t want to drink water and I hate it...luckily for now I am able to drink a ton of water every day and let me just say that if I were to stop now...I would probably gain 5 pounds in a week. It’s weird because if you go from drinking let’s say 10 sodas a day and no water to drinking 48-64 oz of water a day...I can pretty much GUARANTEE that you will lose 3-5 pounds the first week. I swear I pee all of my water out within 30 minutes. I’m honestly surprised that I haven’t gotten in trouble for peeing too much at work because I go constantly. I know that the water is good for me too...it cleanses me and SOMETIMES fills me up...though I’m not convinced that it really substitutes for a piece of fruit or snack. I think that water is something that everyone can do, especially if you sit at a desk all day. There really is no good excuse for not drinking it. Plus, if you have to take a lot of bathroom breaks...you are also moving some which is good too. If you don’t like the taste then you could try Crystal Light or something like that. How about this...if you are thinking about starting a weight loss journey of your own and you aren’t sure where to begin...start with drinking 64 ounces of water every day for a week. You will probably lose a few pounds and feel good about yourself.
I think that is all my brain can handle for today!
