Imagine if there was a magic potion that could speed up your metabolism, melt stubborn fat, re-energize your body and revitalize your joints and organs. And, what if it could also make you look younger, detoxify your body, reduce your risk of certain cancers and improve your digestion – all for free!?  

Wouldn’t that be incredible?! I think it’s safe to say that everybody would be chugging back liters of it everyday in order to reap its benefits! Right?

Wrong. 

This so called ‘magic potion’ is not a figment of my imagination – it’s water! 

Yes, I know. At this point in your life I’m sure you’ve heard the unconvincing suggestion to “drink 6-8 glasses a day”, but has it really changed your habits? Can you honestly look yourself in the mirror and say “I drink the recommended water intake everyday!” – I know I couldn’t. 

4 months ago, not only was I 22lbs heavier…but I was 7% less hydrated!! Yep, that’s right…7%!!! And to think, I was missing out on so many sweet benefits. 

Now, I’m not writing this to convince you to up your H20 intake, because in the end, it’s your choice. But, I will tell you that since I increased my water intake 4 months ago I’m:

·          Feeling less tired
·          No longer affected by severely dry/itchy skin
·          Going to the washroom more! (Yes, it really does help digestion!)
·          Looking less puffy! (it’s amazing how it can shed water weight). And,
·          Losing weight faster!

Not to mention, I’ve made that whooping 7% jump in hydration!  

So, if you haven’t already, think about chugging back a few extra glasses of aqua today, and if you need some help, here are some tips I’ve compiled on how I ensure my body stays hydrated:

·          Crystal Light! If you haven’t tried it, I certainly suggest it – my favorite flavor is
        Lemon Lime! It makes water taste incredible! Just be sure to include them in your
        calorie tracking, and try not to overdo it
J I like to dilute mine with lots of water.
·          Add fruits or veggies to your water! Cucumber in water is delicious, as are lemons,
        limes, strawberries and oranges etc.

·          Wear a ring to monitor your hydration. This is how I know when I need more; all I do
        is tug on the ring and if it doesn’t slide off easily…I need
dihydrogen monoxide!
·          Buy yourself a fancy shmancy bottle (lululemon is awesome!). Not only is it
        convenient, but it will make drinking your water super cool!

·          Keep a sticky note beside your computer at work and tally up how many cups you’ve
        accomplished so far! (You may not think of it as a goal…but it is!)
