Thirsty?

Want some water?

Water.  So simple, yet so beneficial.  When you don't drink enough water you get dehydrated and that leads to less energy (we could all use more energy, right?).  A large part of our bodies are made up of water and because of that we need to replenish.

Here are some other bits of information I have learned about water:
  *  Water is required for digestion & absorption of food
*  Water in the bloodstream carries nutrients and oxygen to cells
*  Water helps to improve exhaustion, headaches, asthma, hypertension...
*  Water flushes toxins out of vital organs

Now I'm a pretty descent water drinker, but I'm also a pretty descent Coca-Cola drinker and one should significantly outweigh the other.
So, I will continue to grab my sunflower cup (isn't she pretty?), fill her up and drink away.

Side Note:  I got 4 our of 5 things done on my Top Five list (this post was the fifth item).

I've been trying to drink more water lately too. I am bad about going all day without drinking anything except a little sip of water to take my meds with in the morning! And I know that is terrible for you. I love your pretty sunflower cup:)

Yep! I drink 3 things: Water, coffee and wine. But mostly water. No soda.
(Love the sunflower cup!)

I was grooving on your cup before you even mentioned it. :o)

I have my hospital mug from Bean's delivery (ugly, though it is!), and I fill that bad boy with ice and water at minimum three times a day. I've cut out all other beverages for the time being. And you know, that's not a bad thing. :o)

Cute cup!! I like water. I'm trying to drink a bit more as well. (asthma issues right now; blah) Any way, I just want you to know I actually did 2 out of my top five yesterday!! Hope to do the last 3 by the end of the week. :) Have a good day.
