It’s another weigh in day and all three people who actually read this blog are probably waiting with breathless anticipation or….much more likely….they forgot about it totally.

Let’s see what the scale says:

Rut roh, I lost less than 2 lbs from last week.  Can you say plateau? And no, plateau is not the name of the toe that got mauled by the dog bone last week.

Looks like I am going to have to change up my routine a little because my body appears to have caught on.  The cryo is still working great, no soreness, no knee pain.  I need to step up my workouts a little and see if the cryo can still handle it.

Today I want to talk about drinking water.  Yes I know, it don’t taste good.  Here, have some cheese with that whine.  I mentioned in one of my past blogs that you need to hydrate, hydrate, hydrate.  I want to also mention that you need to be careful about not drinking too much water.  

How much water you need depends somewhat on your body weight and the amount of exercise you do.  You will generally know when you have consumed too much water when your urine turns totally clear.  At that point it’s time to put down the water bottle for the day.  Too much water can cause your brain to swell (to some of you, trust me you don’t need to worry about this, and to others, no…your brain swelling does not mean that you are getting smarter).  

You can also overwork your kidneys and wash the vitamins out of your system.  So pay attention to your water intake.  You don’t need to carry a bottle with you everywhere you go.

So that’s about it for the day.  Talk to you soon.
