Sweat it Out:
30 Minutes Elliptical Intervals
30 Minutes Weights, Legs
Man, my arms are stiff from yesterday! I love that feeling! My legs feel like Jello so hopefully they will be stiff tomorrow as well. That's how I know I got a good workout.
Back in the day when I first lost 86 pounds, I was a recovering Diet Coke addict. My dad loved it so much there was a fridge in our garage dedicated to Diet Coke 2 liters. I had a nasty habit of swigging it straight from the bottle (drove my family nuts!). When I started working out and doing Weight Watchers I challenged myself to start drinking more water. I NEVER drank water and it was going to be a challenge. I came up with a plan that after one of the 2 liters of Diet Coke was empty I would fill it with water and continue swigging it from the fridge (I'm sure the swigging just became a habit). I didn't even notice a change and felt better than having all of that carbonation. Plus, I lost 15 pounds in two weeks! All form stopping carbonation (and eating better).
This was the one habit that I continued on with even though I was continually gaining weight. Lately I've been drinking only about 64 oz. a day, if that. So I've decided that I am going to challenge myself with my water drinking. I've heard that you should be drinking half your weight in ounces of water a day. That would mean that I would have to drink about 135 ounces of water a day! That seems INSANE! But not so much that I won't try it! My Nalgene bottle holds 32 ounces, and I am challenging myself to drink 5 a day, that's 140 ounces.
I definitely don't think that I'm going to lose 15 pounds like I did the first time around. I don't really drink a whole lot of carbonation anymore anyway and come on, I'm like 12 years older, things are slowin' down. But I have been doing it for the last 2 days, and I already feel better. I do have to pee every five minutes, but I will just have to deal with that.
Do you have a water quota throughout the day?
Do you feel better when you've drank a lot of water consistently?
Weigh-in tomorrow! Fingers crossed that it's a good number!
