Let’s Talk WATER! 🙂
When it’s hot, when we work out, we move around a lot, our bodies start to cool ourselves off. This is where sweat comes from…It’s a good sign!
When we sweat our bodies are basically releasing water, which means, we need to replenish. I cannot stress enough how important it is to drink water.
I am a HUGE advocate for water!
Human blood is more than 80% water. Water flushes waste products out of our kidneys and livers, lubricates our joints and keeps our eyes, mouths and nose tissues moist. It regulates human body temperature and protects our internal organs. Our lungs are90% water and our brains are 70% water. In fact, about 60% of the average human body is water.

So what happens when we don’t consume enough water – Dehydration can happen
Dehydration means your body does not have as much water and fluids as it should. Dehydration can be mild, moderate, or severe based on how much of the body’s fluid is lost or not replenished. When it is severe, dehydration is a life-threatening emergency.

It seems so simple doesn’t it?
It has been recommended that everyone should be drinking a MINIMUM of 8 glasses of water a day. A glass of water is considered to be 8oz. A typically water bottle purchased in a 24 pack from the store is usually around 16.9oz!! So if you finish 1 bottle of water you’ve already knocked out 2 glasses worth!
Our bodies not only need water to survive, but water allows our body to function properly. It is so hard for me to wrap my mind around why people don’t drink enough water!
- Water is FREE when you’re out to eat
- Water bottles are CHEAPER to buy at the store
- Water is good HOT and COLD
