Charlotte confession #485: I don’t like drinking when I workout. I don’t know if it’s the feeling of the water sloshing around in my tummy that I don’t like or just having to stop my awesome super-intense workout to swish something lukewarm that may or may not have other people’s spit in it (occupational hazard of motherhood) around my mouth but the end result is that I rarely drink during exercise. The only time I make a conscious effort to force the liquids is if I’m going for an hour or more but even then I often forget.
