Why is it so difficult to get in the water we should?
One day, someone showed me a glass of water that was half full. And he said, “Is it half full or half empty?” So I drank the water. No more problem.

This should be the simplest of any healthy change we make. We often talk about getting your water in to help reduce weight, but athletes listen up: If you dehydrate a muscle only 3% you cause about a 10% loss in contractile strength, and an 8% loss of speed. All because you are not drinking enough water. What an easy fix! Michele at The Green Protein writes a great blog about it.. check it out HERE.
The best tip I have ever utilized for getting all my water is simply. Embrace my inner 6 year olds love of a straw! It goes down faster and in turn you end up drinking more! This is also a lesson we learned when we first started drinking fancy umbrella drinks.. #worsthangoverever
