Today was another bad-hydration day. I bought this new water bottle from Brita yesterday on a whim, because it was $8 at Safeway and looked cool and I had recently left my primary water bottle on an airplane and forgot my secondary water bottle at my voice lesson. I'm forgetful sometimes.
This one has a filter on the inside, so I can fill it up with tap water from the faucet instead of filling up our Brita pitcher and having to wait before I pour it into a glass. Sounds convenient, right? It would be perfect if only I didn't feel like I was using up all my energy just squeezing the bottle to try and get the water. I swear I feel like a hamster, because I end up using both my hands to squeeze because it's too hard with just one hand. It's a nice idea, but I need to use it only when I'm in a hurry.
Onto my workout - I was feeling apprehensive because I had a headache (probably because I hadn't hydrated enough), was feeling super hungry even though I had already eaten a little over 1200 calories, and I didn't get enough sleep last night. Also I was super sore!!

A summary of my food throughout the day:
|78 is pretty hot! pretty sure it was only about 70, though.|
I admit I'm a little disappointed, but I have to also realize I just wasn't prepared. I didn't even know where I was going to run before I stepped outside, which lead to some last minute decisions and slow downs. I also need to realize that if I'm going downhill, I'm prooooobably gonna have to go back up it at some point. So, while 09'06'' is an admirable average pace, it's nothing like Monday's 08'41''. Curiously, the app says I only burned 2 calories less than Monday... pretty sure that's just wrong.
|My tired, sweaty face. You're welcome.|
What's your favorite water bottle? Do you fill up a regular glass throughout the day? How much water do you try to drink everyday?
As for me, I try to drink at least four 12 ounce glasses a day.
