Your challenge this week is to CHUG your water every day. We are focusing on detoxing our bodies this week and prepping our systems for the 6 week countdown to summer and bikini weather! One of the best ways to detox is to flush your system with clean, fresh and filtered water. In order to fully hydrate yourself you need to drink at least1/2 your body weight in oz’s every day.
Body weight / 2 = oz’s per day
Example: (140/2 = 70 oz) 70 oz of water = about 4 1/2 water bottles or 9 cups
Water has a huge role in your body’s detoxification processes. The three main ways your body can detox are through breath, sweat and waste elimination… all three of these processes require water. If you don’t have enough going in, there’s not enough to pull the toxins out. Quenching your cells leads to beautiful/clear skin, energy and a healthy digestive system. Another plus… the more hydrated you are, the less excess water weight you will carry. You will flush it out which can help tighten up your physique! Drinking water doesn’t have to be boring:
