This past weekend my family and my runner's group participated in our monthly challenge-Houston Texans Running of the Bulls 5K Run. I did not think I was going to be able to run on Sunday since I took a tumble on Saturday down our stairs. I am ok. I was determined and motivated and was not going to miss this run. And if you read my Motivation Monday post, you know there is no room for excuses anymore.
Anyways back to my tip this month of WATER. Your body needs water. Do you know how many glasses of water is recommend for you to drink on a daily basis? It is recommened you drink 8 glasses of water everyday. Do you want to know my tips on how I get all 8 glasses in 1 day?
-I try to drink 1 glass of water every hour I am at work. (8-5 = 9)
-I bring a gallon of water and try to finish it all by the time I leave work.
-I place 8 highlighters on my desk, removing 1 as I drink my glasses.
-Buy a water bottle that counts for you.
Do you track your water intake? Have you tried any of mine? Do you have your own suggestions?
The main thing I keep repeating to you is find what works for you, find a buddy or start with family, and make it FUN! My disclosure-I am not a doctor, nor do I try or pretend to be. I am not an expert or do I pretend to know it all. But I am sharing my experiences to encourage, motivate, and help you along the way.
