That's A Lot Of Water
I was at an event where I ran into a old friend of mine. We haven't seen each other because he's been doing his college work for the last year. So we haven't had a chance to catch up and reacquaint for a long time. When I saw him I found myself going into a temporary jealous rant. He had the smoothest, clearest, most healthy I face I ever have sen for a male during the winter season. Everyone knows the winter season makes your skin look like your own products aren't working. So I found it so shocking that his skin was so clear.
"How is your skin so clear?" I asked him.
"I drink eight cups of water a day," he began. No sodas. No sugars. No junk food. It's my own personal cleanse."
As soon as he said that, my eyes opened wider than a owl's eyes. We are always told to drink a lot of water, but I have never seen the physical effect on what happens when you drink a lot of water. All of what Alkaline Guru's teachings was showing itself right in front of me. It took only the physical appearance of my friend to inspire to try out that cleanse.
For the first week, I drunk nothing but water and cranberry juice. Cranberries are told to clean you up, so I couldn't help but to add it to the mix.In the beginning, I thought it was going to easy. I thought wrong.
It was hard for me to make it to the fifth cup. I found myself going to the bathroom one too many times. I can feel the liquid moving around after consumption. I understand that it takes time to reach a particular point in your life when it comes to a cleanse, but the first two weeks was ridiculous. But just like everything, the first week is always going to be hell. Once the last week was over, drinking water and managing my time to eject in the bathroom became simple and easy.
Still, I give thanks to my friend for physically showing me the wonders of living a healthy lifestyle. I have added and water and cranberry juice to my everyday regime.
