So I started off the day in Court arguing a motion for about 3 hours, then had to drive like a maniac to another hearing in a Courthouse about an hour away. I know, bad planning not to have someone covering the second one, but I had four hours in between!! Who knew? Anyway, I made it, but had no time to stop and pick up another water. By the time that hearing was over, it was WAAAAY past my lunch time. I had had no food since Shakeology six hours before. More importantly, I had had no water since before my first hearing.
Well, I stopped at the BBQ restaurant near the Courthouse. I had intended to get water to drink, but when she asked, I said Sweet Tea. I don’t know why I did this, but I did. I then ordered chicken and beans, which was actually ok. After leaving, I stopped to get gas and thought I would grab a water. Did I just grab a water, no, I also grabbed a Snickers peanut butter. (250 calories for four bites?? Really?? Where is Coach Crystal’s raised eyebrow when you need it?) My lunch should have satisfied my hunger, so why did I grab that candy bar? I think it was because I was dehydrated.
Everyone knows that water is important, but did you know that it is scientifically proven that “increased water consumption is an effective weight loss strategy.” Cool, huh? If today happens again, I will be buying a water before lunch (or at least before that Snickers Bar!!) My Fitness Pal says I still have a few calories for supper, so it is not a total loss.
