I'm not understanding, but my body just tells me it needs to move, so I get up and move. I've tried several times to ignore the message, but my muscles would knot up, and cramp, which was very painful. So, I MOVE!!! I have even been woke up several times during the night with the same thing happening, and when I try to stand up, I fall on the floor, it's so intense. My doctor, gave me a pill, and I just take a half of one every night, and that stopped it happening at night, but during the day is different, and she's still trying to figure that one out.

Blessings!

Nancy Jean - That's terrible! I didn't know something like that can happen but glad you are much better now. What made you want to exercise for 300 min/day? That's a lot as well.

You're so right about the water, but one still has to be careful as to how much they drink. Take me for example. I was exercising approximate 300 minutes a day, and yes it was with different Leslie DVDS. I was replacing my water, because of my exercising and of course I was thirsty throughout the day, and I was drinking about 25 glasses a day. Well, I was killing myself. I was drowning my self and didn't know it. I had 40 lbs. of edema because of that, so my doctor told me to drink no more than 10 glasses a day, and the edema has gone away and I'm not drowning, in my chest anymore.

Blessings!

As a whole, we are made up of 70% water. Water regulates every function in our bodies. Water flushes out waste and toxins. It also transports all the necessary nutrients we need to look and feel good. It flushes out impurities in the skin; when skin cells are hydrated, they plump up to give you a good complexion. Also, muscles that are hydrated look more toned because they are made of 70% water. Not drinking enough water is similar to depriving that less-than-vibrant plant you water every few weeks. The plant will survive, but at what expense.

Other benefits of drinking water include:

Helps digest food
Lowers Blood pressure
Reduces Constipation
Lessens Asthma
Eases Depression
Metabolizes fat
Supports healthy hair and nails
Carries more blood and oxygen to your face
Eases irritability
Regulates body temperature so you don't get too cold or too hot
Suppresses appetite
Prevents water retention
Reduces stress

There are so many aches and pains that most people attribute to being old, sick or tired that are probably just a case of dehydration. Even a lack of concentration and focus can be attributed to a lack of water. It only makes sense, considering our brains are made up of 90% water. Those nagging headaches we often get, that most people shrug off as part of life, can also just be a case of dehydration. What about those painful joints that we complain about? Water works as a lubricant: When we're hydrated, the two opposing surfaces (for example, the femur and the tibia at the knee) will glide freely, causing less pain.
