Rediscovering the Energizing Powers of Water

Sunday, August 04, 2013

Had a very productive day today and I think I have a simple glass of water to thank for it. Last night I read an old post on how well a workout went after I made myself drink a glass of water so this morning, I tried it again and it worked. Not only was my workout great, I had mad energy until 4 pm. Why did I ever stop doing that?

Now for those of you who successfully drink a gallon a day, this might not seem exciting but for me who struggles to get down even 20 ounces of liquid a day, it's a big deal.

This is going to be another new challenge for me this month. No I'm not going to try to drink 64 ounces a day right off the bat but I figure at least half of that is a reasonable goal to start with.

8 ounces in the morning pre workout, 8 ounces during and I'm halfway there. The rest will take some effort but it will be worth it.

Lest we forget, here is the link to SparkPeople's lovely article about the many benefits of water. Drink up!!! emoticon

    Awesome! Glad you're intake of water is increasing! Yes, water is good for you but you are being smart by not trying to gulp down so much water in one day! Increase your intake one glass at a time and soon you'll be drinking the recommended amount. As you increase your water intake, your body will start wanting more and then voila, it won't be much of a thought to drink any more! You'll just drink! emoticon emoticon
