Staying Hydrated is Work

Am I the only person who finds it difficult to drink water? I love water. Icy cold, please. But for some reason, I will go hours and not drink a drop. There are days where I will not have 1 glass of water the entire day. I usually drink coffee, fruit juices (I know, loaded with sugar) and diet soda. Yes, we know the pros and cons of diet soda. But water will always trump any other liquid. I am very picky with water. I drink from the tap, but after reading this, I try to keep a distance. My fav brand of bottled water is Smart Water. The best/purest tasting water on the market imo. But, as I'm trying to be a greener person, I want to invest in a reusable bottle. Not to mention the cost. This leaves me one option. Filters. I have an old Brita jug my mom gave me but never used it. I haven't researched the cost of filters but it's something I need to do.

Anyway, I'm going to start drinking at least one cup of green tea daily. Tons of benefits plus the H2O. I might even set a reminder via email.

One Foot in Front of the Other

I don't really want to jump the gun so all I will say is that things are going well. I feel more energetic and focused on my health since the stress of my former job is diminishing. Going to the gym with my husband is great. I feel comfortable around him regardless of the ugly mismatched workout clothes and streams of sweat. I weighed myself for the first time in a long time. 3 pounds lost. That's a nice little emotional boost but for right now it's all about getting to the gym. I'm keeping it simple. 30 minute workouts, 3-5 times a week.
