Nothings better than a tall glass of H2O!

So we talked about cutting down on the booze right? So what about the other drinks? You know the ones I’m talkin about. The carbonated ones. If you’re a big soda drinker you could be drinking a ton of extra calories and sugar every day. Even one soda a day can equate to 15 lbs a year! But maybe you’re thinking Diet Soda is the way to go. Guess what, studies show that people who drink diet and regular soda are less likely to get enough calcium in their diet, which can affect bone health.

So the best thing you can do for yourself is drink water! The suggested intake of water has always been 8 cups a day depending on body size and activity. But that’s really just the bare minimum. If you know me, you know I constantly have one of these in my hand:

My hubs wants me to drink 5 of these a day! It’s a 24 oz bottle, so that’s 15 cups a day! It can be a bit much, I ain’t gonna lie. And I have to pee A LOT. But when I do it, (I don’t always achieve this goal. Again, not perfect) I do notice that my skin looks better, I’m not as tired, and my sex drive goes up! Win Win!! So give it a try. Here’s what I do: I give myself little goals through out the day. My goal is to drink one of these water bottles every 3 hours. So I fill one up when I get up in the am and then make sure that I’m done and refilling at 9:00am,12pm, 3pm, 6pm and 9pm. That way it keeps me on track and I don’t fall too far behind. Take a picture of yourself now, do this for a month, and then see if you notice a difference! I bet you will!!
