How much water do you drink in any given day? I for one, KNOW that I do not drink enough. I rarely get in my recommended 6-8 glasses. And this is especially bad since I do some sort of exercise on most days. I should definitely be drinking WAY more than I do.
Do you ever get cramps at the gym? Guess what? You're probably dehydrated. I say this to the people who come to my class all the time. And it's really so true- if you have been working out for a while, and all of a sudden you get a cramp, you need to stop for a second, stretch, and drink some water. This totally happened to me the other day right in the middle of a class I was taking. I was drinking during the class, but hadn't had enough to drink throughout the day. I got a major cramp in my side. SO not fun!
I know, I know, you've heard all of this a million times before. So why, then, are you not doing it? It doesn't matter whether it comes out of a straw, a cute trendy water bottle, a fountain, or a plain old glass. All that matters is that it happens. I am making a commitment to start drinking more water, are you?
Have a healthy day,
