How Many ‘Cups Of Water’ (C.O.W.’s) Are You Drinking A Day?

Have you ever asked yourself how many ‘Cups Of Water (C.O.W.’s) you drank in one day?  I did and was surprised to realize that I was definitely not drinking enough water.  In our efforts to get healthy one thing many of us forget to do is drink WATER, good old fashioned H20! Whether you’re a plus size woman or not, we are composed of about 75 % water it is not only necessary for us to live but essential for maintaining a healthy body. 

The benefits of drinking enough water are many but below is just a list of some that I thought were interesting:

  • Promotes clear skin
  • Lubricates joints
  • Prevents muscles soreness
  • Helps to eliminate toxic waste from our bodies
  • Regulates body temperature
  • Helps keep excess weight off
  • Protects our organs
  • Helps in digestion and constipation
  • Relieves fatigue
  • Moisturizes the air in lungs
  • Helps to relieve headaches caused by dehydration

Some of us only feel the need to drink water when we are thirsty or are experiencing dry mouth which is a sign of dehydration.  Many of us are living in a dehydrated state and can cure many of the ailments that we may be suffering with by doing something as simple as just counting how many C.O.W.’s we are drinking a day adding an additional cup. 

Take note now and if you are not drinking at least 8 – 10 glasses a day, you are actually causing your body to work twice as hard to keep it functioning properly.  Below is a small list of some signs that you may be dehydrated:

  • Dry skin
  • Dark  Urine
  • Constipation
  • Tiredness
  • Irregular blood pressure
  • Cramped muscles
  • Hunger
