Tips on Water consumption!
Sedentary Women should consume at least 9 cups of water. Those participating in a fat-loss program should drink an additional 8 oz of water per 25 lbs they carry above their ideal weight. If you're working out you should consume 14-22 oz before you perform one of my workout sessions. I encourage my clients to consume 6-12oz for every 15-20min of exercise. Water should also be increased if an individual is exercising briskly or residing in a hot climate.
Thirst alone is a poor indicator of how much water is needed. So that’s why we have journals to keep us at a peak level of performance. Even fluid loss of 2% will adversely affect circulatory functions and decrease performance levels. The goal is to replace sweat and urine losses.

Use any type of water bottle, I'm sharing my favorite gallon water bottle water.

This works great when I'm at home all day and don't want to keep filling up. You can also grab a 32oz water bottle and fill it up 3x a day. Whatever water bottle you choose, be sure and log your water daily!
Without adequate water flushing toxins and food out of our system we hold onto weight. Water is like a fiber and being dehydrated can give us brain fog, make us feel tired, make our blood pressure rise, and a host of other things. Almost all Americans are dehydrated. That’s a crazy statistic. Don’t let it be you! Drink up!!
Your Liver, your blood, and your kidneys can hold onto stuff that you need to flush out with water. It’s a simple life change that can literally change your insides. I can’t stress this enough.
If you are running or working out you will need to up your water intake, this is just the baseline for your daily needs.
When my girls were 6 months old I started introducing water in a sippy cup they could hold onto and I offered it at every meal. Now it's their number one drink, and even though they love Coke or Juice as a treat, they always ask for water and they both have a favorite Tervis or Disney Themed water bottles and we fill it up all during the day. My girls know if they are sick or have been playing outside they have to take water breaks often. I believe starting them young on the water starts an early love of water and a healthy lifestyle.
