Just a little pick me up for all my 30x5 friendsGo to fullsize image

See full size image Time to jump on that Treadmill and Drink plenty of Agua

Since beginning the third phase of the 30x5 challenge I have done a lot of swimming and walking, but now that my back is out and the rain has decided to stick around for the remainder of this week I am not sure I will be able to complete this phase, but I will sure try. I am slacking in the water department though. I am not a big fan of drinking water, I like a little flavor in my drinks. But I was really trying to force myself drink an 8 ounce glass of water while I was out at the pool or driving in the car last week.

Tea has water in it, doesn’t that countl_262488f2e39a01f49d5d840ee4bd01dc .

So even though I might be down and out right now due to my back, get out there and do some exercise so you can have a little fun in the sun this summer.

Don't forget to see the below post and pick up your award :)AWARD

And please Read this post I did last week, it kind of got overlooked :)Julie @ blessed with five's awesome post


  1. Swimsuit? I'm not sure about that. Shorts? Maybe. Consuming all that water has been hard and I drink water regularly....just not in that quantity! It helped me to start with my bottles filled first thing in the morning. I have one large (more than 30 oz) and two small (20 oz). Start w/the largest one and set a time to have it drank by. Hope this helps. Blessings, SusanD

  2. Thanks for reminding me....however, did you know that Marilyn Monroe wore a size 12?! I'm serious!!

  3. Good you remind me.....Consuming water is also hard for me i drink a lot of greentea and rooibos...Only exercising i must start to do it......
    Take care and hope your back will get better soon


  4. I can't believe our pool will open this weekend! That water is going to be cold! I think I'd rather wear a wet suit than a bathing suit right now!

  5. OH, thank you for the award, sweet friend. I'm sorry your back is out because you've been on a roll with the 30 x 5. Hang in there. You'll work this out!

  6. Thanks for all the comments..

    I love Marilyn, I know she had her faults but she had a real womens body and loved it. I am not a fan of all these stick figure models. I think girls need more people with real bodies to look up to these days:)

  7. Yes it is almost swimsuit season and again I am not ready. I swore I would be this year. Oh well.

    I felt a little twinge this morning and had to slack off after 30 minutes. I was pushing for 40 but didn't make it.

    I am doing the water thing and it is going well. Hope your back feels better soon.
