Setback with dehydration

Because of growing up with hard water, I never developed nice hydration habits… Our apartment displayed a water well that was overrun with iron & calcium… The water was discolored, smelled awful & tasted awful.

Even if my friend and I mixed up lemonade, iced Pepsi or Kool Aid, the water was still disgusting! I didn’t even like using it to brush teeth, however at that time, bottled water wasn’t readily available or popular.

There was no way my mother would have bought something my friend and I could get from the tap for free, then my family never certainly drank water. As I’ve gotten older, this has become a concern for me. I often suffer the symptoms of dehydration. I deal with frequent migraines. The headaches are so painful that I become nauseous & have already vomited. I might be forced to go back to bed & try to sleep with an ice pack on my head. I can experience fever & chills. I now carry a water bottle around with me all afternoon. Unluckyly, I rarely remember to drink from it. I’ve found the best way to combat dehydration is to include water consumption in my day workouts. I fill a 32 ounce water bottle & drink from it throughout the exercise session. I correctly switch what type of exercise I do after every song on my playlist. I make sure to take a large drink between each song as well. I drink the entire water bottle by the end of the workout. Afterward, I mix a powder that contains electrolytes into a 16 ounce bottle of water & drink that. Even if I neglect to drink water for the rest of the afternoon, at least I got a nice start.
