Hydrating in the Fall

Does anyone else find it a tad harder to hydrate during the Fall/Winter? well I do. I guess its the cold weather and the lack of sweating as compared to the Summer/Spring. The more I hydrate in the Fall/Winter the more am constantly glued to the porcelain queen, constantly peeing. Also,  cold weather makes me long for something hot and cozy so I succumb to endless cuppa teas. Still I manage to get my water down but not without a struggle that's for sure.

I've been working out at least 4x-5x a week lately and am so proud of myself. I'm still doing Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred Level 3 and getting that much better at all the circuits. I actually look forward to my workout sessions.

The S.O. and I have eaten out a few times lately but I have made healthy choices like brown rice over white and substituted fries for mixed vegetables/fruit. My aim is to make lifetime changes. I don't want instant gratification. I'm striving to make changes that I will hold onto for the rest of my life. I know it won't be easy but I can only do my best one day at a time. And I'm content with that :)

This week I'm hoping to incorporate more hiking into my workout regimen. Now that I'm done with the 30 Day Shred I read some reviews on Amazon and I think I'll do Jillian Michaels Ripped in 30 next.

I'm still doing fruit bowls for dinner and my big meal is Lunch mostly fish, veggiez and a carb of my choice. My bloating has remarkably declined. Phew. And of course the infamous unloaded oatmeal for breakfast or a bowl of cereal.

Finally, thank goodness its been cool in SoCal this week. I'm talking mid to high 70s and at night it even drops to high 50s/low 60s. I had to pull my winter blanket out of the linen closet. Pure bliss. I even rocked my military boots last night HAHA I'm such a Fall junkie. 

'Til next time my lovelies!!!

That food plan sounds good! A fruit bowl for dinner sounds reaaaalllly delicious! That's great about the substitutions while eating out! I haven't had fries in a while and this past week I had them twice thinking they were going to be amazing...and they weren't :) Hopefully I will go w/the veg/fruit like you do. Keep up the great work!
