There are so many activities we do every single day that leaches water OUT of our system.  When we sweat during a workout.  When we breath.  When we eat certain foods.  Little do we realize that when we are drinking liquids we can also be LOSING water because of their diuretic properties.  Alcohol and caffeinated beverages are the worst.  Our body NEEDS water.  So, if you partake in some of these liquids, then you need to make sure you are drinking extra water to replenish what it has lost.  AND NO... the water in caffeinated coffee does not count.

Drink Water

Drinking water is one of the most important activities we do during each day.  It is said that you should consume HALF your body weight in ounces per day, and 8 more ounces for every hour you exercise. 
If you find it hard to drink water by itself, spice it up a bit by adding a little bit of juice.  My favorite are cranberry and grape.  They taste yummy super watered down.  I avoid the fake sugar drops that you can add to water.  Stur makes a great natural water enhancer.
