Help!

How's everyone feeling today??? It's mid-week! We are almost there!!! I actually need some advice from you guys! I have a TERRIBLE habit of NOT drinking water. I work out essentially 5 or 6 days a week and I am horrible at replenishing the fluids I've lost in those workouts. I get super tired and dog my workouts once I have hit my mid week because obviously I am dehydrated. It's not that I don't like water, it just isn't something I reach for. I have it here and there, but it's like I know I need to drink water but it gets put on the back burner and I sort of just forget about it until I feel like I could drink a lake after my workout. But I know it's not enough. What are some tips that help you guys stay hydrated or help you remember to keep your fluids in balance? I know there are apps and all that...but when my alarm goes off...I kinda shut off the alarm and get into the mentality of "I'll get it later". Hmmm any suggestions??? I'd love to hear it!

  1. Hi Lyssa,
    I don't drink enough water either, but mostly because I dislike it...and because it make me use the restroom too frequently. BUT, it is essential to our biological function so I try to increase my intake.

    I was on a super health kick a few years ago. I bought a mini water jug and filled it up with 8 glasses of water every day and carried it around so I would remember to drink it. And I always made sure I drank it all. That worked for me :)

    1. Hmmm, good idea Kali! It probably helps that the water jug you were carrying was constantly in your eye view so that it was a visual reminder to drink water. I really do need to do it more often...I also hate it because it makes me have to visit the little girls room frequently as well ;/ What kind of water jug would you use? Just like one of those Arrowhead jugs or something else?
