Eat Drink and Be Cheering!

There is nothing quite like the excitement I feel in the morning when I wake up knowing I kicked yesterdays butt!  If I could just bottle up that feeling and remember it, it would keep me strong everyday. I am in such a great place now, I could shout it from the highest mountain, but they are all covered with multiple feet of I'll just shout it on here!

My daily routine has really set in, if I even think of just going upon my day without eating, I hear a little voice in my head reminding me that eating is GOOD!  And I find myself finding food to eat even if my tummy is not the one reminding me to eat.

H2O...vital to life

Water is in check once again, I have already drank 20 oz and will be refilling my container soon.
How much water am I drinking?  The equation is easy, simply take your weight and divide it in half. That number is the amount of ounces of water you should be drinking daily.  Truth is, your body does tell you when you are in need of water.  Fatigue is such a sure sign dehydration.  My daughter, the nutritionist, Michelle told me "mom, instead of reaching for a cup of coffee midday have water."
I thought how silly that statement was, water is going to wake me up?  No...caffeine will wake me up...then I appeased her and drank water instead of coffee...WOW...No longer the fool, water IS a go to for fatigue.  If you can't understand why you are so tired, ask yourself, did you drink enough water today?  Is it half your weight in ounces?  If you said no, go get that water and see if you don't feel better after drinking water.  Water is the essence of life, of all life...I embrace the need to stay hydrated, and my body thanks me in alertness and energy.

I'm going to do my best to do a daily check in on here as it also keeps me on track, and if I can add inspiration to someone reading this, YEAH!

Weight loss today -2/10 of a pound.  Yes!
