Water- Why Does Eveyone Always Insist You Drink It ALL the Time???

Why is water the number one most important thing to make sure you get enough of daily!??

It is simple human biology- water makes up more than half of your body weight and there is a reason for that: ATP- Adenosine Triphosphate.

-It is a high energy storing molecule (the energy that is stored in the bonds between the third and second phosphate in the chain is what is used to fuel practically all chemical reactions in your body)

-Severing the bond releases about 7.3 kilocalories per mole KJ/mol (about the same energy that a single peanut contains- in a tiny microscopic molecule!!!)

-In order to release the energy the basic reaction requires a water molecule

-ATP + H2O à ADP + Pi (hydrolysis of ATP- hydro = water)

-Hydrolysis is when a substance (in this case ATP) reacts with water and a bond is broken

-Without the hydrolysis of ATP and the subsequent release of energy, you wouldn’t have the fuel for the hundreds of thousands of chemical reactions that occur continuously and simultaneously in every living cell in the human body (it isn’t the sole energy source, but it is the most abundant and efficient).

-That means muscle contractions, nerve conduction, digestion, cellular health etc.

Think about it- have you ever wondered why it only takes about 3 days for you to die from lack of water? Just three days! That is because what is not lost through perspiration/evaporation (breathing)/secretion is used by your body in order to keep you ALIVE.

Great Video! Even has a dude doing pushups in the beginning 😉

October Progress and Goal Setting!

So I would like to start this post off by saying…I fell asleep at 8pm, woke up at 10:30pm… … … and thought I had gotten a full nights sleep. UGH!! I hate my body/internal clock!! This is why I am on this posting craze :-p

So today I woke up early (I still have not stopped my alarm from going off at 5am……..) and decided to go to the gym! I was a little unhappy because I tried to do a RPM class (les mills spinning) and spent like 5 minutes on the bike before I realized that it was not going to work. It was hitting the irritated area of my sciatic nerve right on, so yeah I jumped off that bike real quick and ran out! I at least got to tell Mel (instructor) that I was probably going to do that and not to get offended. I would have felt so bad otherwise.

– p.s. if you are ever at the Vent Fitness in Clifton Park, there is a duo named Pam and Mel who are so much fun to take classes with together, and separately. They are really sweet and kind in person as well!

Back to what I was talking about! So I ended up warming up on the elliptical, stretching, then doing the stair climber (machines were making funny noises so I had to jump off and find something else again!- yeah I was frustrated), then I ran a mile. I promptly showered and went to work.

I also met with the trainer I am going to be working with starting in November. His name is David Byrd, and I just love his energy (he talks about energy a lot too). He highlighted my main issue…which is as I have said many times… —> FOOD bah!

I am going to go shopping tomorrow and try doing what he suggested. Prepping for a whole week on the day when I have time. It is very difficult for me to ensure I eat healthy because I am so busy, but I am going to just have to make some life changes and preparations to make sure I do. My #1 goal right now is to lose weight, then we can start working on my body.

Baby steps ❤

Just figured I needed to get serious about my health again, specially if I want to keep doing this blog :-p

haha… makes sense ya?

omg good night

going to bed

not posting another thing
