Don't drink the (purified) water!

On Friday, I drank all my water. It was awful. I had purchased a case of the bottled water that was on sale, which was the store brand, filtered, purified water. It tasted worse than our city water, which is contaminated with nitrates, long story, which is why I am spending money on bottled water. Crystal light helps a lot. I like the raspberry peach flavor.

On Saturday my husband and I drove to the "big city" to run errands, and I had only finished one fourth of my water, so I took three bottles with me. By the end of the day, I had only finished 2-1/2 bottles total, but when we went out to lunch, and then again at the ward Valentine's dinner and dance, I drank large glasses of water, so I think I'm okay there.

On Sunday, between church, the Sunday nap, and going to my mother's house to celebrate Valentine's day and five family February birthdays, I probably only drank 1/4 of my water again.

But today is a new day. I actually feel thirsty, and I recognize it is thirsty and not hungry. I am once again sitting at my desk, working most of the day, with my water bottles lined up and waiting. From now on, I am buying only spring water.

My other goal for the day is to write down everything I eat, and convert it to Weight Watchers points.

That's my problem. I think I'm chronically dehydrated. I never drink enough and the crystal lite does help, but dang. It's so hard for me. I think I'll go get a drink right now! LOL

I love water. We have a well so we have to buy our drinking water because the well water tastes nasty. I try to drink 4 quarts a day but usually end up drinking about 3. I think it makes a huge difference.

I love water, especially ice water, but it is hard to drink enough of the stuff!
