Ok, here´s the scoop, I drank almost 3 liters of water yesterday, and late last night and this morning am suffering from a headache and yucky feelings. I believe this is due to toxins leaving my body but, I went to read some more on over drinking too much.

Now, the key is not to drink all that water all at once. Your kidneys can´t keep up. But, I drank all day long. So, I don´t believe I am having water intoxication. But, I do feel strange.

If you are drinking 2 liters a day, be sure to drink them gradually. If you go over that, drink it even more gradually. I don´t know if I will keep on drinking 3 liters or not. That was a lot of water.

I slept 2 more hours this morning and feel better. Still I am a little groggy more than anything.

So, drink your water but very gradually, ladies.

News flash about my video and the walking plank on your elbows.

To work up to this exercise, start doing them on your knees like with girly pushups. I think that´s how I started. I couldn´t do them normal for a few weeks.

Ok... guess that´s all. Please pray my headache totally goes away. I really did not anticipate this. I thought I had gotten all the toxins out already.

I am so touched by all your encouragement to one another! This Challenge has exceeded even my imagination!

Big Crunchin´hugs,

I am feeling better.. I think I did have some kind of water intoxication. I was praying and praying that it would go away. headache and nausia. really strange.

Well, I don´t know much about water intoxication, but I know you can drink too much water. The veggies and fruit you eat, as well, as any other liquid contain water amounts which we don´t usually add to that 2 liter number. So, if you drank 3 liters and then had water in other things, it was probably too much. I´m glad you are feeling better and do take care the next few days, although that is hard to do being a mommy of three boys!!! :)
I too am enjoying all the encouraging stories. Just knowing that we are all striving to do right and hearing that others have struggles and victories too, makes me want to keep on keeping on.

HI dani,
this link tells us to consider the water we have from the vegetables as part of the water we need to drink a day.

I know it´s good to drink water, specially if you have kidney stones, like me, but overdoing it might not be that good, at least that´s what I´ve heard many times.

I´m glad you feel better now.
