I heard we’re supposed to get 8 glasses of water a day huh? That boils down to 2.5 liters a day. Water is refreshing, suppresses appetite, prevents bloating and improves muscle tone, that’s great and all but did I make that quota? You betchya! See why Thursdays (especially this one) make me so THIRSTY!
Before waking little bug up, I drank 1 liter (bottle holds 1.5 liters) and my delicious coffee. (I won’t be counting coffee into the equation as it’s a dehydrator)
Little bug up, fed, and clothed, filled up water bottle and was out the door
You keeping track? That’s almost 3 liters already and I still haven’t found that bathroom!
Found that bathroom (I was in pain I tell you) and filled my bottle…then proceeded to guzzle most of it making that glug, glug sound with happiness and enthusiasm!
Baby — nap time
Mommy — work time
Total 6 liters.
Off to Zumba with my mother-in-law (she treated me to 10 classes!)
8:45pm: Baby in bed, water bottle filled and now time for some down-home-cookin’ Midwestern Style and a little reward on this Thirsty Thursday (do you see it)…now time for some rest and Eastenders (Oh, how I hope Kat and Alfie get back together soon!)
So that’s a grandtotal of about 7.5 liters! Crazy, right? A bit over the top? Maybe. I love my water!
Thursday’s are crazy for me because I’m out of the house all day and water keeps me going and going like the Energizer Bunny! Are YOU drinking enough? Pregos and athletes need more than the standard 2.5 aqua liters a day, so get drinkin’. Did you know that most hunger isn’t hunger…it’s dehydration! Think about that before reaching for the vending machine. And guess what, 4 – 5% reduction of water in your body results in 20 – 30% decline in work performance! Just a few factoids for ya on water!
I’m out. Friday is my 2 year wedding anniversary…go us! We’ll be celebrating with a fancy- schmancy meal in old Marbella! I’ll leave you for the weekend with this fabulous saying on the back of my Zumba instructor’s tank top!
