Can water make such a difference?
Well when I started counting calories and working out I started to lose weight right away at a regular pace. Being overwhelmed by all that new stuff I forgot to drink my 8 glass of water for a few days.
I just stopped losing weight! For 3 days I was wondering what the $#%?@ was going on? Am I doing everything right? Then I realised that I did not drink all the water I was supposed to. Then I started drinking it again and I started losing weight again. I was just amazed by what just happened. I really didn’t thing drinking water was such an important part of it.
I realise that I will probably experience period that my weight will just stay the same or even increase a little but the water for me is really working!
So yesterday and today I am back in the 100’s at 199 pounds!
I was not very focused on my work out today because it’s my daughter’s birthday and all I wanted to do was to play with her and make her happy. I would have skipped it but I don’t want to miss a single day. Knowing myself, once I break the habit I will lose it as fast as it started.
A challenge for me: I really have to find a work out short and efficient that I can do on my own, anywhere without any special tools. I know eventually we will go somewhere for a week-end or holiday and if I don’t have that I will just go back to my old self.
So I need a plan for that kind of situation. Another thing, I don’t have an iPhone so unless husband let me use his work phone for MyFitnessPal I will be in big trouble…
What do you do to prevent your holiday to wreck all your effort?
