NSV Thursday: Water, water, everywhere!


Happy almost Friday, everyone! I just have a quick NSV to share with you all today, and it’s about–you guessed it–water. (gasp). I went to get a massage for the first time ever in my life (I know, I know, how I made it to this point in my life without ever getting a massage I have no idea) and it was HEAVENLY. I mean, heavenly. I felt amazing afterward, BUT, no one at the massage parlor told me that in order to not get super dehydrated afterward, you should just basically drink an ishton of water to re-hydrate yourself. OK, not only did I NOT drink hardly any water after this massage, I drank alcohol at the surprise party that we had for Bre that night. OOPS. I felt like JUNK on Sunday and Monday. All because I didn’t drink any water after this massage!

So, when I got to work on Monday, I made a promise to myself that I’d aim to drink at least half of my weight number in ounces of water each day–which, for the record, is 99.9 ounces of water. I’ve typically been pretty good about getting a lot of water in at work, but I suck at this on the weekends. I know that there are several “formulas” out there about how much water we should drink each day, but I think the fact of the matter is that it depends on the person. I found the “half of what you weigh in ounces” formula in an article, and thought I’d try that. There’s also the “8 glasses of 8oz of water each day” formula, but as all of you can remember from your times tables, that’s only 64 ounces, and I don’t think that’s enough for me. It also depends on how active I am; tonight I plan on going to zumba after work, so I should aim to drink even MORE water than the 99.9 that I’ve been aiming for each day.

My NSV is this: yesterday, I felt GREAT because I drank what probably amounted to 130 or so ounces of water. The worst part of this, of course, is having to pee freakin’ CONSTANTLY, but it’s worth it to be hydrated. I’m keeping a tab on my computer every day at work of how many 16oz water bottles I’ve consumed to help me keep track. It’s a good habit to be in, and I plan to keep it up. I mean seriously, for you Doctor Who fans out there, this is pretty much me and how well-hydrated I am:

  1. Hahaha, dang you are hydrated! that is awesome!
    I notice that the better hydrated I am from the day before the better my morning runs are. I try to keep that in mind when I really, really don’t want to drink water at home.

  2. I am bad about water on the weekends, too! I got a 32 oz “bubba” double walled cup from Walmart to use at home on the weekends and that helps because it stays cold for so long! I also hate peeing all the time, but at least it gets me up and moving! Honestly, it’s usually the only thing that gets me out of bed! Haha

  3. I am not a big water drinker. I let myself off the hook because I drink so much unsweetened tea. I don’t know if that is really a substitute, but oh well…lol Great job on the water πŸ™‚

  4. I’ve never had a massage. I’ve never been comfortable having a stranger touch me lol Maybe one day I’ll get over that. And water can be really hard. I used to get down 96oz+ a day and I felt amazing and now I have to constantly keep track so I get at least 64oz in a day. WTG on the water!
