Back to the subject at hand. That number, 140, seemed so high! It amounts to 17.5 cups, 4.14 liters or 1.09 gallons. I was determined and excited. I used my handy note app to start a water log for documentation purposes. This is what I have so far.
Water log. Goal 140 ounces or 17.5 cups
Day 1- 14 cups . Notes: For sure thought I could finish but I fell short. Maybe I just started too late in the day?
Day2- Only 8 cups.Feeling like crap.Queasy all day. struggled to eat and get 8 cups in. Had 4 cups of hot tea. Does that count?
Day 3- Throat hurts like heck.12 cups ...barely. This ain't going so well.
Day 4- 32 oz water bottle x3. Bad bad me had too much coke zero .
Day 5- Feeling better.18 cups finally!!
Day 6- bought a 50 oz water bottle to visualize better. 100 ounce in.
Day 7- 100 ounces again. Seems to be where my tummy starts saying no more.
So as you can see, I didn't do so good. I was only able to reach my goal once. I must say that aside from water, I do drink some coffee, tea and coke zero ( I know, I know but I've cut it about 80% I'm working on it!).
I feel like my brain and my tummy decide to act up once I get to 100 ounces. I feel like I will be sick if I drink anymore. Will be working on this from now on. I am not weighing in until the end of two weeks. I do not know if anything grand will be reflected on the scale but my jeans are getting baggy! Noticed by other baggy so I'm hopeful.
I think that the increased water intake makes me feel "lighter" or maybe it's all those trips to the restroom ha! I have noticed my perpetual chin breakout has been so so much better and I haven't changed anything in my skin routine. So I toast you with some water in celebration of the first week and on to the second week. Drink up, until next time!
