Water

How is everyone`s fitness goals going? I am curious! =)
For the last 5 days my knees have been completely stressed out and not very co operative, and I have not gotten my work out`s done. This is beyond sad, but has made me realize how important our joints are.

I got on my computer and did some research and found several articles, researches and discussion boards about how dehydration can cause joint paint. "Preliminary research indicates that 8-10 glasses of water a day could significantly ease back and joint pain for up to 80% of sufferers". Here are some other facts I found interesting:

  • lack of water is the #1 trigger of daytime fatigue
  • having a "dry mouth" is an extremely late sign of dehydration
  • 75% of all Americans are chronically dehydrated
So most of us could be drinking more water. Who`s up for a challenge?
It is said that we should drink half our body weight in oz, (if you weight 120lb. Drink 60 oz. of water etc), but I think that should be an "at least" amount. Jillian Michaels golden number for how much water to drink is 100 oz a day. There will be some bathroom run`s, but lets just get used to it and become avid water drinkers!

Here are some benefits to drinking water:
  • protects and moisturizes our joints
  • helps with our metabolism
  • regulates body temperature
  • relieves fatigue
  • reduce the risk of cancer
  • detoxifies our body
  • helps our organs to absorb nutrients better
