Don’t forget to Hydrate!

19 Nov

Funny Tina should mention being dehydrated in one of her posts. I was thinking about writing about this topic!

I have no clue how many glasses of water I consume per day. I have a blue water bottle at work that I fill up twice. Today I am going to measure the amount of water it holds!

 * So the one bottle is around 3 1/2 cups, that equals almost a litre (4 cups is 1 liter). I drink 2 bottles in the morning, that equals a little less than 2 liters of water. Adding in the few glasses of water when I am at home I drink around 2.5 liters of water per day*  Pwefff, I dislike math!

The Mayo Clinic recomends that women drink an average of 2.2 liters of water, and men an average of 3 liters per day.

Normally in the evening I keep it to a moderate, 1 to 2 glasses of water. I have the smallest bladder in the world, and to avoid being woken up every hour on the hour to go pee, I don’t drink a lot at night.

Happy Hydrating!
