I always say my grandpa would roll over in his grave if he knew we were buying and drinking bottled water.
You're doin' what?
That shit comes outta the faucet, don't it???
Anyway, today's sermon is about drinking water. God didn't create water just to swim in. You're supposed to drink it, too.
A LOT of it!!!
There are all kinds of different opinions and recommendations, but according to ol' John Henry, you should be drinking close to a gallon of water a day.
Sounds like a lot, doesn't it?
Well, it's really not.
How much is the average bottle of water?
16 ounces, right?
OK, a gallon is 128 ounces, so divide 128 by 16 and you get ... 8 bottles.
Still sounds like a lot, huh ...
Here's what you can do: first thing in the morning, throw down one or two bottles while you make your coffee or whatever you do while you're wiping sleep from your eyes. Now, you've only got six more bottles left.
You're not drinking sodas, right, so 5 or 6 more bottles should be doable.
Personally, I'm not a big fan of water, but it's pretty easy to drink quite a bit working out at the gym or the park. Any other time, water kinda sucks, but I found something that helps me enjoy it a little more.
I get those quart bottles of alkaline water, and I add the juice from a lemon and a few drops of liquid Stevia.
So that's the message for today -- drink water. If you're not already drinking enough, start working on it.
