Drinking a gallon of water a day

I read an article a woman wrote about the wonderful health benefits she received from drinking a gallon of water a day for 30 days. Knowing that I don't drink enough water as it is, I decided to take on this challenge myself.

I started Monday, and maybe it was lack of sleep or maybe it was the huge flush of all electrolytes in my body, but I felt super tired around 3pm. Like, can't-keep-eyes-open tired. At work that is not a good thing! I had a twinge of a headache Monday night at bedtime. I ended up only getting in a little over half a gallon on Monday.

Yesterday, I completed the full gallon. Once again, drinking that much water did not change my hunger levels; I just had to pee every 30 minutes. I had a REALLY bad headache last night - how I feel sometimes after a long run where my electrolytes are depleted. And again, I was tired mid-afternoon.

Moral of the story: what works for some may not work for all. I'm going to aim for my 64 oz. of water every day and leave it at that.
