Ok, on the positive side of things I am managing to keep up with the 2.5 to 3 litres of water a day - always starting with hot lemon water in the morning before eating anything. I haven't felt particularly well this week so far so I haven't been exercising - but when I do I plan to drink more than that.
The negative I have noticed is headaches. Now, as mentioned I am feeling run down - but I think that is due to my body trying to fight off lots of germs that are around me at the moment. I don't believe it has anything to do with me just drinking water. I also think the headaches are due to my lack of caffeine as on a normal day I can get through 5- cups of tea!! - but it is difficult to tell.
The positive I have noticed is that I am definitely sleeping better. Due to not feeling great I have been making sure I hit the sack before 10pm most nights, in the hope that I am asleep by 10pm. Some nights this has worked, but not all. I have been sleeping right to the alarm!! This is unheard of.
Whether this will continue only time will tell, once I am beginning to feel better in myself the reality will hopefully be easy to determine.
On the major plus though, I am still smiling :)
I am a busy mum of two teenage boys, and between them and work I am forever running around. I have always been interested in fitness, and I make sure that exercise features regularly in my life. However many of my friends are not into fitness like me, yet want to be healthy. I want to help people make healthy lifestyle choices which will impact on their fitness, without necessarily feeling the need to throw themselves full force into exercise.
