The color of your urine is a great indicator of your hydration level. The best color to aim for is pale yellow!
I always have a 32oz water bottle everywhere I go! On average I drink close to a gallon, but not because everyone else is doing it. I drink a lot of water throughout the day but I’m always checking the color of my urine to make sure I’m on the right track. Someday’s I drink more than other’s, it’s never the same exact amount and a lot of it depends on my workout and weather outside.
I do not eat 100% perfect or clean. I like banana splits, chocolate, cinnamon rolls and I allow myself to indulge whenever I want. I’ve realized that I reallyyyy crave not so healthy foods more when I restrict myself, but when I indulge I get it out of my system and move on.
I eat when I’m hungry and stop when I’m full (sometimes if it’s really good I bypass the cues and keep eating cuz I’m only human haha). I don’t count calories but instead focus on making sure my plate is full of color and REAL FOOD.
