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. I love my family and I'm trying to learn how to love myself. It's taking 46 years but I'm getting there lol. I'm still learning how to blog and figure out what kind of audience I'm trying to appeal to but I find myself randomly posting about anything and everything, which is okay I guess. I love being a homebody. I swear there's no greater peace then enjoying your home and its surroundings which is why blogging is ideal for someone like me because it makes me realize there is a whole big world out there to explore. The best part of that is I can do it right from the comforts of my home! I hope you enjoy my site and if there's anything you'd like to comment on, feel free to hit me up.
