- 28-40 ounces of water are lost in breath and perspiration [heavy breather???]
- 20-55 ounces are lost during urination [I pee all the time so I’m going to double that]
- 2-7 ounces are lost via the gastrointestinal tract (feces) [no comment]
Take your weight [don’t cheat] and divide by two. The result is the number of ounces of water you should drink a day.I be seeing yellow already! ☺
146 [I’ve lost 5 lbs – cheers!] / 2 = 73 ounces OR 6 – 12 ounce glasses of water a day.
It’s a lot of water, more than I drink now [I thought I drank a lot already YIKES! I may need to buy one of those porta potty thingies Marcy blogged about and tow it with me everywhere I go]. So I’m adding it to my goals to see if it makes a difference in curbing some of my hunger during the beginning stages of Mr. Q's weight loss challenge to create some better eating habits.
Today is a 1 hour bike ride and a 30 min run. Peace and Love peeps.
