Okay, okay, we've all heard a million times how important hydration is when exercising. I know this! 30 minutes into my walk in the desert when the temperature was under 100 degrees, I was tired, hot & noticed I wasn't sweating very much. Nobody but me, giant saguaros & the trail ahead. My h20
ran out when I was still 20 minutes from home. 2 hours after I was safely home, I realized I had not had enough water to drink BEFORE I started my hike. My usual water was NOT ENOUGH when I was starting out already under watered! Lesson learned! WATER, WATER, WATER! 91
I'm pretty sure you've all heard this before. But this really works. If you ever feel like your hungry, ask yourself, "Am I hungry or thristy?" Chances are your thirsty. Always drink at least a glass of ice cold water before eating as well. This helps you eat less and avoid binge eating. Never replace Sodas or Sugary Drinks with Water. That only pulls your dehydration down even lower. Drink Waer instead. Your body will Thank You!
I remember a few years back, no one could get me to drink water. And during that time, I always felt really hungry and tired. My answer: Water. Water, Water, Water. You need it for everything. It's an helping aid in all that you do. It keeps you cool as well.
