I know I've been gone for a bit. My apologies for those of you who read but never say hi. My brain has been all over the place for the past few months. Trying to get back on track. I've logged in quite a few times, however those log ins only resulted in reading everyone else's updates on their blogs. There have been so many interesting updates. I truly enjoy reading them. Also, however I need a moment to adjust to the new format of this site. Still haven't completely figured it out yet. UGH! It seems like when I figure out how to navigate around somewhere they change the format and just make it confusing.
Any who, I just wanted to share. Yesterday, I drank 3 Liters of water. Something I hadn't done in a LONG time. Actually truth be told my water intake had been slipping. THEN...... yesterday happened. I was REALLY thirsty. I learned while watching The Biggest Loser, that sometimes thirst feels like hunger and you may eat instead of drink, but your body is begging for water. So yesterday I drank, and then I drank some more. The water tasted SO GOOD to me, that I kept going. I think the only reason I stopped at 3 was because I was going home soon and I was trying to avoid the extreme need for the bathroom after my almost 30 minute ride home. It didn't work, but whatever. So yes I had to go to the bathroom constantly and my hands did need lots of lotion after all the washing... however it was SO worth it. Did you know your urine should be almost transparent? Did you know your kidneys amongst other vital organs including your skin NEED water in order to function properly. I also took a little 3-6-9 (Borage, Flax seed, and Fish Oil) with my water and oh my goodness the difference I felt in my body. Even this morning I woke up a lot easier than normal. There is NOTHING better for you than good old fashioned water. Please be good to yourself and make sure you get at least eight glasses (8oz each) of water a day. That's the minimum, the more the better. I will be getting back on my water kick as the results in how my body has been responding to the water have been phenomenal.
