This is a post about water. Yes, you read that right; I'm writing about good ole boring H2O. Except it really isn't that boring, okay I take that back, water is actually pretty boring. But boring isn't necessarily a bad thing. Water is boring but it's also delicious.

I lost about 15 pounds this summer through a combination of going to the gym 5 days a week, eating healthy, and drinking lots of water. That healthy living kick bit the dust around the beginning of September and I've since gained back about 5 pounds. This really sucks because I was really starting to feel good about my body for the first time in years. Not only was I losing weight but I was building muscle and just felt all around healthier.

Of those three things the only one I've kept up is drinking water. I know if I didn't keep that one up I would have gained back more than just 5 of those pounds too. I don't even drink it now to be healthy; I do it because I genuinely love the stuff. Now don't get me wrong I love my sweet tea, margaritas, and skinny vanilla lattes as much as the next person, but in my opinion you just can't beat ice cold water.

Every time I take a sip of icy cold water I feel like I'm drinking energy. I seriously feel more awake after drinking a glass of tap water than I've ever felt from even the largest cup of coffee. I can eat the most fattening, unhealthy meal, but if I do it with a glass of water I feel no guilt. Water is my miracle drug. In my mind it erases all my unhealthy living sins from the rest of the day. So maybe actually drinking water isn't as good for me as I thought?

I only started writing about water because I was drinking it and thought maybe I'd get inspired as I started to write, but all that happened was I got thirsty and drank more water. I'm not really sure where I was trying to go with this post so I think I'll just end it here before you all think I've completely lost my mind.
