Water helps to maintain healthy body weight by increasing metabolism and regulating appetite.

Water leads to overall greater health by flushing out wastes and bacteria that can cause disease.

Water can prevent and alleviate headaches.
Water aids in the digestion process and prevents constipation.
Water is absolutely essential to the human body’s survival. A person can live for about a month without food, but only about a week without water.

For a majority of sufferers, drinking water can significantly reduce joint and/or back pain.

Water naturally moisturizes skin and ensures proper cellular formation underneath layers of skin to give it a healthy, glowing appearance.

Water leads to increased energy levels. The most common cause of daytime fatigue is actually mild dehydration. 

Drinking adequate amounts of water can decrease the risk of certain types of cancers, including colon cancer, bladder cancer, and breast cancer. 

Water is the primary mode of transportation for all nutrients in the body and is essential for proper circulation.

 So with all that being said....can I give up my diet coke??
I have an addiction...I'm not sure if I will be able to... but I will try to kick the coke this week and really push the water!!   ....Ill let ya know how it goes next MMM...If I don't die..

 Another thing i'm addicted to is my protein shakes!!!
YUMMMY.. this brand you can find at wal mart. it's pretty cheap and a good source of protein for your moneys worth

 I always have one right when I get home from the gym. 
These babies have enough calories to substitute for a meal tho. So you don't want to drink one then have a big breakfast. I usually have my shake and a piece of toast or handful of dry cheerios.

This is not just a phase I’m going through or a temporary ‘diet’ I’m trying out. This is a way of life, my life, and a vow to treat my body with respect.

 So you know that post last week, me being sad about one lb. weight loss...well this week I didn't loose any. so next time I shed a lb. I plan on doing the happy dance. I swear I worked my butt off this week...However I do feel way buff ha ha 
 so maybe muscle weighs more than fat??
or I'm going to tell myself that to feel better!

 This month I'm taking on the jumping jack challenge.



  1. Great job Ash! You are doing awesome! Such inspiration, really!

  2. I love this version of "Keep Calm"- lots of great reminders in this post! My first visit- I was intrigued at your blog title because I live in a boys world too :) I'm anxious to keep visiting back! Hope you have a great week :)

  3. You can do it! Kick the Diet Coke! haha! And what's the jumping jack challenge?

  4. I love these posts! Great reminders for water.

  5. Muscle does weight more than fat!=) I definitely need more water in my diet. For sure =\ I'm a mountain dew fanatic. I feel horrible even saying that!!

  6. love that last bit about always eating the same way, it really helped to motivate me :)

  7. thank you! I needed this. the older you get the harder it me. :) I am also trying to kick diet coke and drink more water and the last part about always eating the same way.....soooo very true. Thanks for the reminder that I badly needed. Have a blessed day :)

  8. what a great post girl. ok so i know you might be addicted to your soda but i promise you will see more pounds shed off if you knock that out of your diet completely. it isn't always easy to eat healthy & work out but its so worth the effort!! keep up the good work you look great. I don't think there is a greater accomplishment after having a baby then to feel fit and lean again!!
