Water: Gotta have it!

"I found out why cats drink out of the toilet.  My mother told me it is because the water is colder in there. And I'm like, how does my mother know that?" Wendy Liebman

Weight Watchers has alot to say about water.  That's why you see so many people at Subway with a gallon jug of water and the telltale black clutch containing their "points" bible.   In beginning this 52 small changes experiment, week one is about water.  Brett Blumenthal (great author name by the way) has boiled down (!) the recommendation to 1 glass of water per hour or approximately 1/2 of your body weight in ozs.  I have been slacking, apparently.

As of yesterday I started this one glass per hour experiment.  The bathroom urgency is definitely a side effect but surely there is more to it than that.  Since I was already somewhat on my way to ultimate hydration from my ww days, I am going for extra credit with a new fangled re-usable bottle.  It is called a Bobble, and it is cute.  According to my husband I am quieter with my Bobble.  Ordinary bottles make a slight collapsing sound when you drain them.  I thought it was a just a charming reward for completing my drink. Who knew?

  1. I didn't realize such a thing as a "telltale black clutch" existed. Since Subway is my son's favorite place to eat lunch, I'll be sure to look around next time we're there!
