Right down the hatch!!!


Worth a repeat here at my blog is how much water to drink. You’ve all heard the 8×8 rule.  Drink 8 glasses of water, at least 8 ounces each. There is no scientific study to support this, and the truth is, it really depends on your lifestyle. It depends on your nutrition, where you live (climate) your health, your exercise output, what other beverages or medications you take, and so on. On average, humans are over 60% water, and this water provides moisture and carries nutrients, etc. I won’t bore you with details; you can google that. Simply put, if you feel thirsty, drink. A few glasses a day are sufficient for most of you. For those focused on weight loss (or not) remember this: Thirst will often feel like, and rear it’s ugly head as hunger, when it’s really thirst; your body needing water. Just have a glass of water to kill what you think are hunger pangs.

Here in Austin, where Summer has clearly hit, DO drink water before, during and after walking outside or doing yard stuff, or any outdoor activity.  Dehydration comes fast in hot weather no matter where you live – so stay ahead of the eight ball. Okay, here below is the shot where the H2O didn’t quite make it into the hatch! hahaha
Stay cool!
