Drink that water

Recently I was put on blood pressure medicine for….high blood pressure wooo. Never thought in my life that day would come but it did. I am trying to take care of myself better so I can eventually get off of it. I don’t eat terrible but I think the combination of my age(42), the stress that I am under, and the yo yo eating habits I’m on contributed to causing the high blood pressure. With that being said, since I’ve been on the bp medicine I have been feeling achy, my neck and back have been hurting, but even before the medicine I was feeling those same symptoms coming on so I went for blood work and it turns out that my kidneys were showing that I have not been drinking enough water. Now I know the benefits of drinking water and how important it is but for some stupid reason I never did. Well for the past 3 days I have increased my water intake probably by 85% and let me tell you I am starting to feel like a different person. My neck stopped hurting, my bones stopped aching, my lower back is starting to feel better. All because of water. I am your average run of the mill mom and my advice to whoever is reading this, if you are feeling a little off increase your water consumption. Start there first and see how you feel just after 3 days. It is such a simple solution to a problem that you would never think could go away or be so easily solved.

This is me. I'm a mom, a sister, a daughter, and friend. At times, and MOST of the time I live an ordinary life lol. I have two amazing teenage boys that I refer to ask my rocks. They are definitely as solid as they come and I am so grateful and blessed to have them in my life. I’m a teacher’s assistant and absolutely positively LOVE my job. Omg there is no greater pleasure in life then getting paid to do what you love to do. I’m not perfect nor is my life, but I try every day to get it right. This is my story and my journey. I hope you find some of my posts helpful, inspiring, useful, and not too boring lol. Thanks for visiting and I hope to hear some of your comments and questions if you have any to share.
