Exercise and not drinking enough water!

So I got in my workout last night, it felt so good to be back at the gym.   I can't believe its been almost a month since my last workout.  There was hardly anyone at the gym...almost thought it was closed.  I kind of missed seeing others workout.  I found an old ipod that I had lost and it had a bunch of music on it that I had not listened to in awhile so that has been fun going thru and listening to it.  But I have decided that I need to add some new workout music.  That is always motivating for me, listening to new tunes while I workout.

I had a pretty stressful day yesterday and ended up with a splitting head ache not sure if it was from stress or lack of water....I did not drink water all day until 4:00pm ...what was I thinking.  Water is really hard for me to get in .  I made it up by chugging down 3 bottles but I probably should have had more..the headache went away after the workout and water which was great.

Last night after I showered I went thru my closet and tried to find some pants to wear and low and behold my pair of 14's fit.  That made me super excited.  I still have all the loose skin in the middle that kind of spills a little over the top but really I am not sure when or if that is going to go down.   I am pretty much retiring my 18's, had to clean those out of the closet because they just bag out so terribly.  My 16's are nice and loose and I probably could get more 14's but I am not willing to spend the money yet.

My eating has been really good lately and I have been happy keeping it just under 1000 calories a day.  I feel pretty good today and it is a little cooler out in the morning so that is nice.  I ordered my bountiful basket this week...I did not do that last week and I really missed it.  I love how it forces me to really eat more fruits and vegetables.  I have a doctor appointment scheduled for next week...can't believe its been almost a month since my last fill.  I am not really thinking I need a fill so it will be interesting to see what my doctor thinks.  He encourages appointments monthly just to see how we are doing.

My 8 year anniversary is next week...not sure what to get hubby but thinking about a wallet..he needs one, his last one is all beat up and he doesn't even use it anymore.

Yay for going back to the gym! Let me know if you want the texts to get you back in the habit. LOL

Sounds like you're doing great with food and are generally in a good state of mind. :)

It sounds like you got it going on with exercise and your food. Good for you.

I know you have probably heard me say it, but I could go all day without drinking a thing. I've always been like that.

But it does make a big difference when I drink my water. I've been pretty good at it for three months now.(that's a record!)

I didn't realize you have been married 8 years.(not sure what I thought though lol)

I ALMOST texted you on my way home from the gym last night to see if you went! So glad to hear you did!

And 14's?? Super great!! And I'm a little jealous!!

I haven't been drinking enough water lately either. I have also been having more frequent headaches....don;t know why I didn't relate the two like you did. Probably cause I'm not as smart as you :)
