Traci - Too Much Water?
So, my body has never had this much water. Ever. In an average week my body is used to getting about 30 ounces. Now I have bumped the intake to 80-100 ounces a day. Overload for this girl. I have been feeling lightheaded and dizzy all week and this is the only thing I can attibute it to. And what do you know? Dr. Google suggests water intoxication. Here's what I found: "The bottom line is this: it's possible to drink too much water, but unless you are running a marathon or an infant, water intoxication is a very uncommon condition." Well, I'm not an infant... but I am training for a marathon! So, the main suggestion I read is to make sure I'm not only drinking water, but also sports drinks. The bod needs some electolites. I can handle that!
