I'm about to go into womanly issues, so consider yourself warned!
First, I'm an idiot. The water bottles I use on a daily basis hold 32 oz, not 24. I've been drinking an average of 6 bottles daily since last Tuesday. That's 192 oz, without including my morning coffee. Whoops! Knowing my error isn't going to change my intake much though because I'm STILL thirsty when I'm not consuming this much. I woke up this morning feeling beyond dehydrated. Obviously my body is digging all the water, who am I to argue with that? I did have a coworker (one I dislike admittedly) lecture me about too much water being a bad thing. I've read all about this, and the consensus seems to be that too much, too fast is the issue. I'm stretching mine out over a 15-18 hour day, and feel great. If I'm missing something, please let me know.
I have kept an eye out for any indications of this being too much, and aside from being cleaned out, the only change I've noticed is my cycle. It started this weekend, on and off, which is a full week early for me. To be fair, the increased exercise, change in calories, AND increased water could all play a part in this. I'm not worried about it, but if I happen to start AGAIN at the end of the week because of my BC, I may kill someone. PMS is bad enough once a month, right?!
On a positive note, that means I lost about 4 since Tuesday, technically before my period. I see no need to further explain this happy realization :)
I added a new weekly Hot 100 goal- to work out before work 4x a week. Monday came, and nadda. Apparently going to bed after midnight, hunting zombies in your sleep, and getting up at 5.. Okay, hitting snooze until 6:45 and then racing around to get ready.. Is not conducive to a morning workout. I know my bedtime needs to be earlier, but I struggle getting in bed before 11, and feel victorious when I do. I love sleep, and I'd love more of it, but I get distracted so easily by all the little undone chores, working out, blogging, and don't want to give up the little bit of snuggling on the couch I get with Mr. D. I'll have to make it a priority this week though. Maybe starting small with 11pm would be doable.
PS: Please don't give me health/diet advice when you choose not to utilize it yourself, dear coworker. It makes me want to throw something at you. Just sayin'.
