We all know that drinking water is good for us right? But, besides quenching our thirst...why is it good for us?
To begin with, let's look at the breakdown of water in our bodies:
It seems as though, us humans, are walking around completely water logged (I wonder if our insides get that wrinkly finger look; like after a long bath?). Now this alone, should tell us that drinking water is vital for our survival and well being.
But wait...there's more!! Tell us what we have behind curtain number 2, Johnny.
(At PFT, we recommend drinking around 0.75 oz of water per lb of body weight; may vary from individual to individual)
OK, OK...we get it!! Water is good for you. But, I just can't...[insert excuse here] Now, I understand that drinking more water can be a bit of a hassle at first. But where there is a will, there is a way.
As you can see, it's very possible to increase our water intake and in turn drastically improve the way our bodies function and how we feel.
Let's finish this up, so I can go get a drink of water. This blog made me thirsty!!
Water is vital for our overall health and well being. It has countless benefits if adequately consumed and dire consequences if ignored. It's cheap, easy, effective and the most simplistic way to begin your fitness journey.
I challenge you to try one thing this week. Start each day (right when you wake up) with a 16-24 oz glass of water, with fresh lemon juice (equivalent of about 1 lemon; not from concentrate). I think you'll be surprised, with how much better you feel and how much easier it'll be to hit your hydration target.
Fitness and health doesn't have to be hard. I can honestly say, that starting each day with a big glass of lemon water (over the last 5+ years) has been the single BEST habit I have ever implemented in regards to my health.
Stay thirsty my friends!
