Stay Hydrated

The old wives tale is that you need to have 8 glasses of water per day.....FALSE!

You need 64 ounces of water per day....but you receive water in other forms than liquid!

Some veggies/fruits are nearly all water......


And some other drinks count toward your daily intake of H2O

Sodas (Diet I hope)
Enhanced Waters

The 64 ounce thing is also a depends on your activity level.....a 180 pound man running 3 miles needs more than a 110 receptionist... Hydrate according to what you are doing.

I dont drink enough, and I know it...every morning I have a glass of water and some type of juice...usually have a Monster for Lunch...then one or two glasses of water before I go to bed....My goal this week is to add another glass of water while I am at work....Baby Steps

My tip....Before I leave in the morning, I will put my water in a travel containor (no plastic bottles for me) but I will use mostly ice, that way when I am ready for will still be cold and I am not inconvenienced to walk across the building to the fridge to get my water....
