Yeah, the Dos Equis guy has no idea what he’s talking about. “Stay Thirsty” Ha! He don’t know. The trick is to stay hydrated.
I’m saving so much money since I stopped drinking soda. I’m not stopping by gas stations for a drink all the time, there’s no reason to buy coffee in the morning, and I’ve even stopped buying Gatorade and other sugar-filled drinks. The problem? I forgot to drink anything at all. Yes. I simply forgot to drink water for almost an entire day.
Needless to say I was feeling a little ill this morning. It honestly felt like a really bad hangover, but thankfully I knew exactly what was going on. Any master alcohol consumer knows the “OMG I NEED WATER!” dash to the bathroom. A few cups of sink water and a shower took care of everything. I still can’t believe I simply forgot to drink anything.
You are not likely to forget like I did, but here’s a heads up anyway. Make sure you are hydrated at all times. This is a known mood booster, and drinking lots of water keeps you from feeling like ass. You’ll need the extra H2O anyway if you up your exercise like I did. It’s a strange thing to sweat during the winter months, but it feels good once you get used to it.
Here’s a good money saving tip. Stop buying bottled water.. it’s a rip-off. Get yourself a pitcher with an attached water filter. I found one at a local Kroger outlet for less than $20. Simply fill it up at night before you go to sleep, and BAM! You have enough water to get through the entire day. Buying bottled water all the time adds up, and I’m sure you could use that money for other things. Like pot?
Drinking plain water all the time gets old, but it’s so much better for you than a “sports” drink loaded with toxic chemicals and sugar. Do yourself a favor and read up on Aspertame sometime.. I can’t believe I drank that garbage for so long. Anyway, try adding some (organic) lemon or lime juice to your water. It makes it much less boring, and a little more enjoyable to drink (at least for me). Try it.
Until next time. “Stay hydrated my friends”
