My usual morning cup of tea was replaced by hot water with a slice of lemon. Having the need for a hot drink in the morning - this is definitely a good alternative in my opinion. Great to re-hydrate on waking, but best to have on an empty stomach. I followed this up with another glass of cold water :)
The day unfolds fairly uneventfully, apart from a few extra toilet trips!
I carried around a litre bottle and worked my way through this during the course of the day, leaving me with about one litre to get through in the late afternoon/evening. I realised that I should have had more during the course of the day as I found it a struggle - especially with dinner to fit in too. It is easy to fill yourself up on water and not want to eat much of your dinner.
A lesson learnt already! ensure you spread the drinking out evenly.
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.
