Once Upon A Time

Do you ever think was I doing it wrong? or maybe my body requires this now with age? Okay before you reply to the second question I already know our bodies make changes with age so don’t focus on that question too long. But really the change I’m referring to is associated with my workouts.

I once would do an intense workout, sweaty, stopping to catch my breathe then resume and after the workout shower and begin my day or just pick up where I took a break. But nowI am sipping on water or my hydrate during the entire workout.  Today I’m thinking what changed? or was I just going through the movements and not giving my 100 or nowadays my 125?  However I must say I feel my workouts now and really enjoy them.

Perhaps I was just going through the movements sometimes you don’t know what you don’t know.  How about you do you hydrate during your workouts?

The Benefits of Water – However

 

Drinking water has so many benefits and there are many. Here are a few and only a few: skin, organs, hair, blood, replenish before and after workouts, aides in digestion, helps with flushing out toxins and the list continues.

My concerns and I have a huge one. We’re suppose to drink 1/2 our body weight. WHEN. I’m able to drink 1/2 only when I know I will be at home and not going out for anything because that doggone urge to empty the bladder just pops up and I’m stuck looking crazy where is nearest ladies room and please don’t let me have to walk 1/2 mile to get there. I know and I hear so many people verbalize they do it daily, really? I get close but honestly I’m good at 1/4 my weight when I’m on the move.

Is there a secret I should know? Am I the only one with some days on committing to 1/2 body weight water intake. I don’t think so, but for those who drink the correct amount (not adequate, sustainable) but 1/2 the body weight. Okay if you weigh 100 lbs. no need to respond but anyone greater share. I want to know your method because I feel really good when I drink a lot of water, but my faucet just doesn’t know when to turn off if you know what I mean .
