I have had enough, people! I don’t have a very healthy lifestyle. It’s easy to accept that you aren’t healthy, and it’s also easy to think deeply about changing, but that’s as far as most people ever get. I’ve reached that point where I’m ready to do something about it.
So I’m trying this new thing where I drink more water. ‘More’ meaning…drinking water period. I’ve never seen the point in consuming something without a taste. We have to eat and drink to survive, we might as well make it good every time. Water is like liquid tofu. Just, wrong. I hate that it’s necessary for life. My body doesn’t seem to share the same sentiment though, so I’m making an effort to stay hydrated, and maybe pieces of my face will stop falling off and my body in general will stop going into disrepair. There is no reason for me to be in such bad shape.
Let me tell you though, this new endeavor is HARD. I’ve been drinking water for about a week now, and it’s just terrible. My body is rejecting the stuff. I drink the water, and my system goes into shock, screaming THIS ISN’T COFFEE OR CRANBERRY JUICE! WHAT IS THIS MADNESS?? DO NOT WANT. I have to pee constantly. I’m too busy not doing what I’m supposed to be doing to deal with going to the bathroom every twenty minutes. I can’t live like this.
The worst part about it is that I’m probably so chronically dehydrated, that it’s going to take forever to see any results, if it improves my condition at all. If there’s one thing I detest more than water, it’s waiting. C’mon facial cells. In the time it takes for you to turn over, my cat will have rolled over the length of Pennsylvania. CHOP, CHOP!
I have yet to feel any different in the last week, but I’ll keep drinking water. Mainly because I’ve run out of juice and have depleted my arsenal of Starbucks giftcards. Plus, I recently discovered that my feelings of hunger are a lie, and I keep eating when I’m actually thirsty. Joy. We’ll see how this goes.
