Have You Been Drinking?


WaterMaychallenge2

If you get thirsty – your body is already dehydrated.  One of this month’s challenges is to consume at least 1/2 your body weight of water in ounces (if you weight 100 lbs drink 50 oz) a DAY!!!  If you are active and sweating then you will need even MORE!!!  There are so many benefits of drinking water regularly it isn’t even funny.  It helps with:

  1. clear brain fog
  2. keeps you hydrated
  3. replenishes body fluids
  4. cleans out your system of waste
  5. regulates body temperature
  6. helps carry oxygen and nutrients throughout your body

And that is just getting started.  Did you know the majority of adult Americans do not drink enough water (and NO coffee doesn’t count)?  What are you waiting on?  Embrace this challenge this month and hopefully every month after to keep your body hydrated with the plain, good stuff.  If you can’t stand plain try flavoring it with pieces of mint, cucumber, grapefruit and/or tangerines.

I drink water daily so this challenge is not much of a challenge for me.  It is already part of my lifestyle.  I drink 20 oz of water when I wake up in the morning while relieving myself.  Perhaps that is TMI but it is the God’s honest truth!  I drink 20 oz of room temperature water before I even brush my teeth sitting on the john.  Then I drink another 26 oz during my workout activity.  I then drink another 26 oz of water while on meeting calls for work throughout the day.  And for good measure, I may drink another 20 oz of water while watching TV before I doze off into sleepland for the night to wake up and start it over again.  That is over 90 oz of water on a regular day.  I am active so I do need to drink that much.  I am participating in this challenge and reporting my water consumption daily to the group to help motivate those who do not find it as easy to embrace.  I log my water consumption in the FITBIT app I downloaded to my iPhone 4S.  If I can convert at least one person to drink more water – I will feel like I did my part!!  What are you waiting on?  This is day 2 of the May challenges but it isn’t too late for you to get your water IN!!!!  Let’s GO!

1. 2 cups unsweetened Almond milk (Silk brand)

2.  2 cups organic baby spinach

3. 2 pears (recipe calls for 4 pears)

4.  Dash of korinje cinnamon
