Are You Ready?  Let’s do this!

Lets start with one of the main basics, water.  Yes, H2O!  Sounds simple enough doesnt it?  Or does it?  I told you that this blog is about simple and achievable goals but I didn’t say it would be easy.  Some of you don’t drink any water in a day’s time.  Some of you only drink soda pop or coffee all day; oh come one you know who you are.  Some of you have no idea how much water you should drink in a day.

So here is a easy way to know just how much water you should drink in a day.  First you have to get on the scale to see how much you weight.  It’s ok, no one is looking.  Now divide that in half and that is the minimum amount of ounces your body needs in water each day .  Example a one hundred pound person needs fifty ounces of water each day.  Ok now you know what your bodies minimum requirement are.

Did you catch the part where I said minimum?  If you are outside working up a sweat, your going to need more.  If you are drinking caffeine in any form it will take an additional eight times that to flush it.  Let me say it like this; if you drank a eight ounce cup of coffee this morning you will need to drink an additional sixty four ounces of water to flush it from your body.  Yes, that is on top of your minimum bodies requirement.

I know what your thinking!  What happened to being easy and attainable?  It is a goal, it is something you work toward.  So if you don’t drink any water during the day start by drinking one bottle of water.  It might take a few days or even weeks before that seems normal to you.  But once it does add another and work up from there.  Also, at the same time drink one less caffeinated drink.  At some point you will have dropped the bad stuff and added the good stuff and it wont even be painful lol

I believe in you, you can do it!
