mini updates | The Shrinking Jeans of Crooked Eyebrow

Today was my second day of the couch to 5k program. I was pumped and ready to hit the treadmill right after work. The first week of the is simple and thankfully isn’t too hard for me yet. Right now my max on running is about 2 minutes, so it works. When the one minute run is up, I feel good but I am thankful to get to walk and catch my breath for 2 minutes! Overall I am really, really excited about completing the program. When I am running I picture my self skinny in a bikinifor motivation. Seriously folks. Mental imagery is totally working for me. I want my bikini back!

Remember when I posted my goal to drink the right amount of water for my weight? Guess what? I did it. Every single day I have been averaging about 90-100 oz of water. Yes, I even drink more. Fortunately I have started a routine.  First I found the largest plastic glass I have (it’s about 22ounces with ice) and I use a straw. Yes, there has to be a straw. I drink so much more and not to mention faster with one. Here is the breakdown:

*22ounces driving to work

*16 ounces by 9am

*16 ounces by 11am

*16ounces by 2 pm

*8 ounces on the drive home

*about 30 ounces at night

This has been about 108 ounces of water a day. You know what? I feel great. My skin feels and looks better as well. Of course each day varies but this pretty much has been my routine and if fits for now.  The number of trips to the bathroom are countless…How are all my sisters doing on drinking water?
