The Facilities

Water is a life sustainer.  I've never been great about drinking it, but I've been making an effort of late for a couple of reasons:

1.  My skin and hair are really dry.  I don't know that drinking water will take care of it entirely, but I have read that failing to drink enough will sap moisture for more important functions.

2.  Water is apparently a metabolism booster.  Who knew?  Since I'm tired so often, I figured increasing my water intake might help alleviate some of that exhaustion.

Those are really great reasons, right?  Add to them the fact that my CamelBack holds 24 oz. of water.  I try to drink one bottle before I leave for work; I drink two of those bottles at work.  Then, I drink another one when I get home.  That's 96 oz. of water.  At minimum.

Without a quick anatomy lesson, you can fully understand that my recent...*ahem* endeavor has meant I've had to forge a new relationship with the facilities. 

Losing weight and getting healthier should extend the number of years we're here with loved ones.

I just wonder how I'm going to spend time with them when I keep running to the bathroom every 10 minutes.

I'm sure all that running to the bathroom is burning calories!

Ha! You'll find that the running for the bathroom will abate (somewhat) over time. Until then, wear your running shoes. :)
