Hydration to the RESCUE!

Oh baby, especially after some of your New Years Eve shenanigans!!!  We should be drinking more water than we think we should.  Drinking water is like putting oil in your car- it runs a lot better when it has the proper amount.  If you have ever noticed your energy level differs throughout the day, your first  instinct should be to ask…..What and how much have I had to drink today?  Especially if you are a coffee drinker in the AM and have a few alcoholic drinks at night usually those drinks are not replaced with enough fluids to regain normal hydration.  And did you know you also lose a lot of body water at night every time you exhale?

Water also makes up 90% of our bodies and two thirds of our total body weight.  That is also why you should never let the number on the scale define you.

Ice cold water first thing in the morning will naturally boost your metabolism.  Then from there on out it  should be your goal to drink at least 4 bottles of water a day.  Especially if you are changing your lifestyle to a healthy and fit one.  My goal for myself and it should be yours too is to aim for one gallon of water per day.
