Drinking water can help with weightloss.

I have always known that drinking water is good for you and your health. I also knew that I needed to drink 6 to eight glasses a day. I even knew water is the reason your body works the way it does and without water your body would not be able to perform even the simplest functions.  I even new water also helps the way your body looks and it can help you lose weight and become more fit.

 But here is a few things I did not know I did not know that drinking ice water helps you burn calories t it takes one calorie to warm 1 kg of ice water by 1 degree C. Drinking 64 oz. of water a day will help you burn an extra 70 calories, estimates Mark McManus of the website Muscle Hack.

I also did not know that a person who increases his water consumption by 1.5 liters a day would burn an extra 17,400 calories, for a weight loss of approximately five pounds. They note that up to 40% of the increase in calorie burning is caused by the body's attempt to heat the ingested water. The findings are reported in the December issue of The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism.

I also did not know that drinking water would make your skin healthily and make you look younger.

I guess there is more to water than quenching your thirst.


I have always wanted to be a great runner.
There is one problem I really don't love to run.
This is my year that I will learn to love running.

I love this quote and will keep it as my inspiration.
I have set some running goals one of them being running a half marathon.
It is a big goal 13.1 miles.
This month my goal is to run 3 miles every other day at least.
I am hoping I run the 3 miles in 28 mins.

Getting ripped!!

This so far is my favorite of Jillian Michaels work outs.
It is easy to do but the work out is hard.
I love that there is an eating plan and I love that there is a promise of  big results in 30 days.
I started the eating plan and workouts on Monday and the only issue I have is there is no portion sizes to the eating plan that I have seen.
I took pictures and measured and cant wait to see if it worked.
I will share the pix and measurements when I am done even I will even let you see my fat belly witch I hate and hope to be gone the most at the end of this 30 days.

This is my year!!

I cant blame having kids on making me out of shape I was in better shape after having them than I am.
I think me weight gain and being out of shape came from being depressed and a little laziness on my part.
In April I will be 39 and decided that this year I will do every thing in my power to leave my 30's in the shape I want to start my 40's.
So I am doing it no excuse.

I love this Quote I put it on my mirror so I can remember why I am in pain for the next few weeks.
I have a plan I am going to try in on Monday it is a 30 day Challenge and I think it is a great way to start out my goal of being the best me.
So here I go No regrets!
