Water, water everywhere!
So apparently I have a little problem..... I drink too much water! Never thought I would say that since up until about a year ago it was like pulling teeth to get me to drink any water that wasn't from a brita, or a smart water bottle and even then it had to be flavored. Since I started running I made it a point to try to drink more water. I bought these awesome contigo bottles and invested in mass amounts of Miu flavoring that I store in my desk. At first it was really hard to drink 2 bottles a day which is only 48 ounces but apparently it has gotten much easier.
Last week a coworker asked me how many bottles I drank a day since I was constantly filling it. I couldn't tell them since at this point I drink it and fill it without even thinking. This week I started to track and realized I am up to 5-6 bottles during the work day. That is 120-124 ounces of water during the work day, plus at least 8 ounces of almond milk that I have in the mornings, and any water I drink at night!!! No wonder why I have to pee every hour lol I did a lot of searching and most sites recommend that you drink half your weight in ounces which means I should only be drinking about 60 ounces a day... oops! Apparently it isn't horrible for me but I just need to make sure I keep up my sodium levels, I bought a bunch of NUUN the other day so now I plan on adding in at least 2 tablets a day to try to keep up my electrolytes and sodium.
In other news I signed up for the Tone it Up bikini series this week! I have been hearing a lot about Tone it Up from the blogging world but didn't want to spend $150 on the nutrition plan they offer. I didn't realize that you can sign up for their fitness plan for free and they send you weekly workouts and offer a ton of videos and print offs. Here is there blog for information!
Yesterday I did the cocktail dress workout and sunkissed abs workout an oh my!! I can not believe how sore I am today. I struggled through my last set and I can say that I am for sure hooked. The workouts use very little equipment and take less then 30 minutes. These will be my new go to lifting routines during the week. I planned on doing the Sunseeker workout which they released yesterday but I think today will just be a running day if my legs can handle it!
