Epic Fail

Alright, it’s official. I suck at this blogging thing and REALLY suck at this healthy lifestyle thing. I’ve fallen back again….waaaay back. I want this so bad yet I ALWAYS self destruct. As soon as I have a bad day I turn right to the food. I will say, in my defense, there have been a lot of bad days lately. So…a run down of my life for the last 6 months:

  • Boyfriend left
  • Finally found a rental…2 hours north of where I lived and away from everybody I know
  • Second job ended
  • In December boyfriend and I decide to try to work it out, but at a distance
  • Nothing changes….I end it (last week)
  • Ex decides he wants custody of my son
  • He loses, but there’s a ridiculous visitation schedule I have to abide by now (he lives a few states away and is known for not showing up when we’re supposed to meet or forgetting him at daycare)
  • My parents sell their house and buy one in Arizona (we live in NH), which leaves me pretty much all alone in New England
  • My daughter hates living here and her school, because it’s too easy

Alright, that’s enough bitching. I’ve been stressed, lonely, and snowed in. And you know what makes it worse? I know that despite all of it there is NO excuse for allowing myself to be a fat ass. So, here I am once again. Third time’s the charm? Maybe? I hope….

We’re going to start with baby steps.

I’ve posted before about how important water is in A Sea of Coffee. Knowing this I still don’t remember the last time I had an actual drink of water. So I went out and bought a package of Poland Spring sports bottles. Did you know I should be drinking 5 and 1/3 of these per day? I know I’m dehydrated. My body has been hurting, I’m always thirsty, my skin is dry and breaking out (I’m in my 30’s damn it I shouldn’t break out), and my brain is just a fog. So I’ve decided I’m going to spend the next 3 days focusing on drinking enough water before jumping into a diet regimen. I’m not going to change too much on how I eat because I want to see the actual results of just the water being added.

Once these three days are up I’ll be going hard with a 7 day cleanse diet before hitting the 21 Day Fix again. I love the 21 Day Fix and it really helped last time. I think I need a 7 day cleanse in the beginning just to give me a bit of a boost.

Need to know how much water you should drink? Take your weight in pounds and divide it by 2. Now turn those lbs to oz. That is how many ounces you should be drinking.

Bottoms up!
