Yeah, my track record isn't great.
Despite all that, I am signed up for 30 days of Bikram Yoga (thank you, awesome deal on living social!), and the website very sternly told me to drink at least twice as much water as is normally recommended, which is 8 glasses per day (obviously).
That sounds easy! I will be well on my way to looking like this:
Is it just me or are her arms bending backwards a little? That is... freaky. Is that what yoga does? Oh well, I'm still going to be awesome looking and covered with sweat! Woo!
Day 1: Drank 3 glasses of water, a large cup of coffee, and 2 glasses of wine.
Thoughts: Maybe this isn't so easy.
Day 2: Drank 8 glasses of water, 2 cups of coffee, and 2 beers.
Thoughts: Hold on, I have to pee.
Day 3: Two coffees and a water in, I decide to make a graph about Liquids Consumed vs. Level of Hydration.
Thoughts: I like graphs.
Water Consumed vs. Hydration
It appears as though... I'm screwed. I cannot drink that much water AND give up coffee AND beer. I am going to be left as some kind of wrinkly and moisture free mess on the floor of the yoga studio. I will be like the opposite of the wicked witch of the west.
Moral: Self improvement is hard. So is drinking water. There's a hard water joke there somewhere, but all my energy went into graph making.
Moral 2: Seriously, the universe doesn't want me to be hydrated (see ALL OTHER ENTRIES). Yes, the universe, people; clearly, I have no control over this.
