I am on a health kick of late — even using SparkPeople, which is really a rather remarkable tool. I still make excuses about exercise, and while my diet is very much extremely better, I still have a few too many calories and a lot more sodium than I need. But the WORST challenge is to “drink more water.” I already had one of those walnut-sized bladders. Now I have a walnut-sized bladder that was danced on for 9 months straight. Other than morning coffee I confess that I rarely pay attention to getting fluids. Now that I am tracking it — and my goal is only 6 glasses, not the absolute INSANITY of 8 — I am dying. When you begin to drink “enough” water, your body plays very weird, mean tricks. No longer do I get a nice warning when I have to pee….you know, the “hmmm I have to pee, but I bet I can make it to the next freeway exit in 15 miles” (and by the way, am I the only one guilty of SERIOUSLY misjudging that distance from time to time?) No sir. I will be typing away, and suddenly I have to pee RIGHT NOW. I have to scramble to the bathroom just as fast as if I had been out running errands and just got home with 3 bags of groceries.
See that? That was a pee break. I’m not kidding — I don’t think I am gonna make it much longer with this daily water drinking. Any advice or encouragement is more than welcome!
P.S. Peed again.
