Recently I have been on a total health buzz and have been trying (emphesis on the word trying) to make good decision when it comes to my health. I have been eating healthier food, goind to the gym and trying to drink more water. When I decided to take this challenge I thought the toughest thing I would have to do is go to the gym. Boy was I wrong…. I quite enjoy going to the gym. It makes me feel good and energized **until the next day when my whole body is sore**.. The hardest part about this whole thing for me is drinking water. What is supposed to be the easiest part for me is the hardest.
When I made the decision to up my water intake I realised i was drinking next to nothing. Most of my fluid intake consisted of coffee. I was mortified. This made me want to change more than ever. So I started drinking water except for 45 mins after I made this decision I had forgotten all about it and had drank 2 coffees already. I failed miserably.
So I started researching tips on how to drink more water. The first thing i found was reasons on why water is good for you. Then I remembered I was trying to drink more water because I have always heard its good for you but I didn’t actually know why it was good for you. So Andreia on a mission!
