Week 1 - Habit 1

O.K girls. I have unleashed habit number one on my body. I am already finding the first habit hard to break. But it takes 21 days to make a habit and as a school teacher, I believe in the philsophy that you need to repeat something 80 times to get something completely into your system (halve that if you are a girl apparently!) My first healthy habit is DRINKING WATER. Now, the past 2 days I have actually drank 800m;s of water. I know it's not a lot, but this is me. I don't drink. Seriously. Not at all. I worked out that last term (10 weeks) I drank 3 glasses of water. I mean, I had incidental water in tea and stuff, but only 3 glasses of pure drinking water. I realized that I need water and that it needs to be a life change, so it will become part of my life.

Water for Weight loss: The more you Drink, The more you Shrink!

Few people realise at first just how essential water is to the success of their weight-loss program. In fact, the essential place of water in our diet extends to everyone - whether they want to lose weight, gain weight or stay the same weight! We all know we can't live without water, but just why is it so important? Well there are many reasons. Read on and discover why water can help your loss weight and why it is your essential life-force.
Apart from 60-70% of your body being composed of water, water has an extensive range of functions essential to life.
Assists digestion, absorption and assimilation of food. If you don't drink enough water you can't get the full benefit of nutrients in the food you eat.
Assists excretion of waste from bowel and kidneys. If you don't drink enough water you get constipated and put your kidneys under stress.
Regulates body temperature. If you don't drink enough water you compromise the evaporation process you skin uses to keep you cool.
Your blood is 92% water. This is your body's transport system distributing nutrients around the body.
Body secretions and digestive juices are almost entirely water. Why should you drink water when you want to lose weight? Water is a natural appetite suppressant. Do NOT underestimate the power of this statement. Lack of water can lead to over eating. You brain does not differentiate between hunger and thirst. So, when you think you are feeling hungry, your body may in fact be signalling to you that you are thirsty! If you are not consuming enough water each day and you feel hunger pains, chances are, your body really is crying out for water. In many instances people will find what they thought were hunger pangs were in fact, satisfied by water. Try it! You have nothing to lose, except some weight.
The aim is to drink water consistently. If you drink too much all at once or too fast, it will simply pass through you, with little or no benefit to your body. If you are someone who does not enjoy the 'taste' of water, then perhaps you could fill a 1 litre empty soft drink container with water the drink through it twice during the day, adding some fruit, or Cottee’s diet free Cordial to it to make it more palatable. Place it on the desk at work in front of you as a constant reminder to sip continuously throughout the day.
There is absolutely is no doubt about it. When you start drinking enough water regularly, there are great benefits. You may notice your skin significantly improve and even tired muscles will thank you. Many people find their energy is increased and constipation and headaches are reduced, as well as hunger pains.
It's so simple...drink water! Drink as close to 2L a day.

Well guys! You heard it here! DRINK TO SHRINK!
