Water, Water Everywhere

But no one is drinking it. At least not me. I convinced myself that coffee was mostly water, and since I used fat free cream substitute and no calorie sweetener it was fine. Nothing replaces water though. It is the only substance that truly hydrates without giving the body something to work on getting rid of (sugar, caffeine, additives, coloring, etc.) I got myself back in the habit of drinking 8 cups of water a day and had a really good weight loss week last week. I ordered a recumbent bike too. It isn't here yet, though. I have a sit up bike but I developed sciatica last year and I think it was a lot to do with that so I'm hoping the recumbent bike with it's 'real' seat will make things better.
