Day Nine: Recap – Making a Splash

Today marked a wholehearted embrace of water. I had been estranged from this noble liquid for too long. But today I experienced its intoxicating brand of hydration no fewer than 12 times!

Splish Splash

The downside of all the water is the need to pee frequently. I’m used to my body giving me a gentle nudge to go pee, but after swilling down cup after cup that nudge has become a knife to the ribs. It would be kind of embarassing to pee all over myself like a common Sim, so I’ve been obeying my body’s commands… for now.

By early afternoon my pee had become completely transparent. It is possible that all the water I drank has washed out my insides, and now I am just an enormous scraggly water balloon. While I appreciate the idea of a bladder as clean and barren as a robot spinster’s womb, I do miss theoretical possibility of writing my name in the snow with yellow flourish. I’ve never actually done that, but I’ve always had the capacity if I so chose. Now, that fundamental right has been taken from me and the world is a little smaller for it.

But enough of that. You didn’t come here for the mournful wail of a mournful whale. No, you came for hot statistical action, and you will not leave this place unsatisfied.

Today was not a dining fiasco. It consisted of a lot of convenience food from Trader Joe’s – the Turkey Burger, Breaded Chicken Tenderloin, and Chicken Tikka Masala are all designed to be microwave friendly. But the net result was a low number of calories overall and lots and lots of water. Combined with some physical activity I think today was overall pretty succesful.
