Ever since we moved in May, I have had a hard time getting in all my liquids everyday. I think it has to do with me being too picky about my water and did not like the way it tasted.
So, I started drinking one Crystal Light drink a day. Slowly, Crystal Light became my only source of liquids. The only problem with this is that any day I went without Crystal Light I would get a headache, which is not good either. I was so tired of getting headaches, that I stopped drinking Crystal Light.
Without Crystal Light I had pretty much stopped drinking liquids all together. I would have a drink of water if I was really thirsty, but I have not made it a priority.
This MUST change. I need to get in my liquids, especially my water everyday.
I felt so much better when I was drinking at least 8, 8 oz glasses of water a day. I want to get back to that! I am going to break out my Nalgene water bottle and start drinking more.
I found this video link at I'm Gonna Do It!. I was so excited, because Bob Harper talks about the importance of hydration.
I am not going to get into the scientific side of things. I found lots of articles on the internet that talk about the benefits of water. If you are interested in doing more reading on this, please check out the links below.
