Staying Hydrated

Drinking enough water throughout the day is something I need to get better at. It seems so easy to forget about when you’re constantly on the go with classes, work, or just going out with friends.

Today before classes started I decided to take a look in the bookstore to kill some time. I found Bob Harpers book The Skinny Rules. One thing you should know about me is I love Bob Harper and can not get enough of watching him on the biggest loser! He is so inspiring!

His book has a ton of interesting information and a lot of great healthy meal ideas. Because I am trying to stay more hydrated I found this section particularly interesting:  Rule 1- Drink a large glass of water before every meal-no excuses.

While reading through the Rule 1 section he mentioned that staying hydrated is the most crucial part to losing or maintaining your weight. I thought his tips were helpful too. He had so much insight on ways to make eating healthy easy!

I am going to try and get my 8 glasses of water in everyday by keeping a water bottle with me on campus or even doing homework or watching TV.

Lunch Today

Tomato, turkey, fat-free swiss cheese, and lettuce sandwich on wheat bread. Fat-free light Black Forest Cake Yogurt on the side. So yummy and filling. I have been trying several different flavors of this 100 calorie yogurt and so far I like Carrot Cake, Black Forest Cake, Cappuccino and Wild Berry Crumb cake the best. I am not a fan of Key Lime Pie or Cinnamon Bun flavor!

Hope your having a super Monday!

  1. Hey Michelle- Thought you might want to check out this interview since your such a “Big” Bob Harper fan. It may change your mind on what an inspiration he is and how you really view the Biggest Loser. 😉

  2. Wow that was an interesting interview! I definitely was not excepting that. I am sad to hear how badly they were treated. I definitely feel differently towards the show…. shows how reality TV really tricks people 😦

  3. Interesting. I just read the article. They ARE lucky to be chosen, just like any contestant on a reality show. And they do cry when they might be eliminated. However we should all be treated with respect.
