Water Challenge

Anyone feel like joining me in a water challenge? I haven't been drinking enough (I just forget) so I thought this week I'm going to drink loads of water, sort of as an experiment to see if it really does make a difference to weight loss.

I think I'll set an alarm on my laptop or phone to remind me to drink a large glass every hour or something. Of course I'll need to be close to the bathroom all day (heh heh).

As predicted my weight has bounced up and down a bit in the past few days. Tomorrow I'm setting the alarm for 6am so I can get up and pound the pavement. Only walking at this stage til I feel healed enough from my op to start my 'couch to 5k' again.

Then as soon as the Doc gives me the okay I also want to add in some weight lifting. I just read the New Rules of Weight Lifting for Woman and I'm keen to give it a go. I've always loved weight lifting in the past but probably didn't use my whole body enough. I've got all winter to get into it so I look fit and strong for summer!

For those of you struggling with Dukan at the moment. Be encouraged. It does work. It hasn't been a straight or easy path for me. I've definitely fallen off, twice where I gained back quite a bit of weight. But I've clambered back up and started again, each time more and more determined and now I'm nearly at the end I'm even more motivated than when I started.

Have a great week everyone and drink lots of water!

  6. Good luck with your water you guys! You will have to pee non-stop but it makes you feel so much better while following this diet. Keeping hydrated is a must. Good luck! :)
