I Started Drinking 100 Ounces Of Water Every Day And Here's What Changed Other Than Peeing A Lot

Sounds like a lot of water because it is.

Right now I'm going to assume you're possibly thinking something along the lines of:

"OK, Liz. This better not be an article of you preaching to me about how important drinking water is and how it's immensely changed your life."

If you are thinking that, you're in luck because it didn't. I haven't lost a whole bunch of weight suddenly, and neither my depression nor my acne disappeared.

What I have had is to pee more times a day then I would prefer, too.

Honestly, it's really only helped a little bit. It hasn't been some miracle cure for me, right now because I'm not changing other aspects of my diet. I'm still addicted to carbs and may or may not be able to eat an entire bag of pizza rolls in a day.

But, sometimes a little bit is all you need though. A kick-starter, or a stepping stone to help you begin to figure it all out. Drinking a bunch of water every day, whether you physically see results or not, is a good habit to get into. When you do, you'll notice the healthy habit seep into other parts of your daily routine.

For example, I stopped snoozing my alarm clock. Anyone who knows me knows that I am NOT a morning person - despite my attempts to be one. I always found it extremely hard to get out of bed, especially on the cold, dark winter mornings. Now, I would like to note that I'm not suddenly jumping out of bed ready to tackle the day, but I will say that it's much easier to fight the extremely tempting offer to crawl back in bed and sleep the morning away (but, I do still need like my morning caffeine dose).

Another thing I noticed was that I am more organized now than I ever have been before. My planner is staying updated, it's easier for me to remember tasks (I still write everything down though, because journaling is super important for mental health). My schoolwork is neater and more presentable. It's easier for me to focus in class when the teacher is droning, I don't get sidetracked by Facebook or Twitter as much as I used to.

Also, while my acne is not gone, my skin is clearer. For a while, I actually stopped washing my skin and my skin cleared up, it looked really good. In reality, my skin was finally given the opportunity to regenerate and heal because I had been using the wrong products for my skin type. Then the acne came back because of hormonal imbalances and the lack of care. I now use a gentle cleanser and a spray toner with moisturizer, and I invested in a microdermabrasion roller that I use every other day. This, in combination with drinking a lot of water every day, has helped my skin almost as much as allowing it some time to regenerate.

Overall, drinking 100 ounces of water every day has helped me in all the little areas of my life that I had been struggling with. Waking up on time is easier, my organization and focus levels are higher, my skin is healthier. I also feel overall just feel much better about each of my days.

I wouldn't necessarily call water a miracle cure for getting my sh*t together. If you want that, you have to include other aspects like energy or time, and I certainly don't have either of those, but maybe you do.

Dreading This Day All About Love

Valentines day blues

I have never enjoyed Valentine's Day.

Even if when I was in a relationship it was just an awkward day of "hey I love you, give me gifts and lets make out." But this year, I am just not feeling this thing at all. Since the relationship ended last June I have just been dreading the time when February came, because you know that on the 14th you are going to see all these love post and all us singles are like "welp this is just not my day.", and honestly you feel defeated. I personally asked other singles friends (like the three I have) if they wanted to come and watch Netflix with me and dread the day, but sadly they either had school or work. So here is my plan of getting though this day of love:

NETFLIX

Yes Netflix how else am I supposed to get through this day? Usually I have Greys Anatomy playing all the time but that has love in it, and I am not in the mood for that. My plan is to watch all the crime shows I can because watching TV crime series or documentary about serial killers just seems perfect for the 14th.

SLEEP

Yes sleeping. I don't have anywhere I need to be why not catch up on some zzz's

CHOCOLATE

Yes I am going to eat my feelings with chocolate because why not? if I could I would get a giant slice of cake and live off that on the 14th but sadly I am stuck with the normal Heresy's chocolate and Reeses which will do their job.

CATS

me :)

This is my wonderful cat Kimber and she will be my partner in crime on the 14th. She will sleep, snuggle, cuddle, all day with me because I need that moral support of my fluffy cat.

BOOKS

If I am able to fit reading a book into my schedule of everything listed above then reading will go into that open spot. I always loved reading but with school it is hard to find the time to read for enjoyment. so this day will be the perfect day.


This is my plan for the 14th of February and hopefully this will help me get though this dreadful day. And if you are also single try this out :)
