How to Keep Your Body Fit and Fab

4:39:00 PM

As you exit the gym with your six-pack abs, muscleman limbs, and a Superman chest, or while you prepare to run at the park with your perfected waistline, slender Barbie hips, and flat tummy, it's nice to think about how you got this far.

Remember the discipline you needed just to go to the gym or jog at the park day-in and day-out? You recall missing those midnight snacks, forgoing dates, and turning down party invites just to ensure your routine is not ruined. With a bittersweet smile (and perhaps a teardrop running down from your eye), you reassure yourself that it's all worth it. You've had your escape to paradise, your fill of Vitamin Sea, and now the challenge is to maintain that fantastic figure. Summer is over, but that's no reason to lose your fit and fab body!

Looking good or having the right figure should not be your only concern. Think healthy living. To effectively maintain that figure for a longer time (if not a lifetime) and to feel good from the inside as well, consider how you keep yourself hydrated.

For as long as you can remember, you've been told to drink at least eight (8) glasses of water a day. As our bodies cope with different activities that have different levels of intensity, the need to keep hydrated is not simply satisfied by eight glasses. Most of the time, we need more, especially during summer when we sweat more often than usual.

Keeping count of the glasses you've been drinking each day may seem too much though especially while in the middle of our summer escapades. However, the risk of dehydration is real. Sometimes, the common dizziness that people feel while playing under the sun's heat is usually caused by dehydration. Headaches caused by dehydration could even lead to fainting or a ruined natural 'digestive routine', which is crucial for diets and maintaining that figure.

The main tip is to make it a habit to drink the right amount of water your body needs. We know that you can relate to how difficult it is to form habits, so we wrapped up three simple life hacks that can help keep your body beach-worthy!

1. Always keep a bottle water with you

The easier it is for you to do something, the easier it is to make it a habit. Writers on self-help, success, and discipline say making a task 20 seconds faster will make you more motivated to do the activity.

Recall how you got yourself to jog everyday. Did you put your shoes beside your bed so that when you wake up, you can easily suit up? Think of it as having that Facebook icon in your smartphone's homepage. Doesn't that give you easier access? Definitely!


Plus, looking for a convenience store to purchase a bottle every time you are thirsty is expensive and a hassle. It will also just contribute to plastic bottle waste. Wherever you go, always bring your handy bottle with you. And don't forget to fill it with water before you leave home!


2. If water bores you, add flavor!

Oftentimes, we don't give our best to create habits because we feel that the task at hand is too much of a bother. Spice it up by trying out something new. Toss in some cucumber slices or lemon with your everyday fix of water. This is an easy way to make drinking water fun and much healthier.


3. When you feel and believe you are hungry, drink water first

Many of us seem to be hungry almost all the time and it is normal to feel it at an average of four hours after every meal. As Filipinos, we get hungry more often, especially with our merienda culture. The next time you feel hungry, tie up drinking water with that feeling. The next thing you'll know, reaching for that bottle of water and drinking it all will be as effortless as breathing!


Moreover, thirst is often confused with hunger. True hunger will not be satisfied by drinking water. So, if it is just thirst, you save yourself from those unnecessary calories. Those who are on a diet will surely love this!




Go for a stylish, easy to hold, and durable water bottler such as Tupperware's Eco Bottle.

  8. It's really important to keep your body hydrated especially when you are very active. Adding some electrolytes into your water can also help improve the water absorption in the body.

  9. I feel guilty. I haven't been drinking water much these days. Due to my busy days, and the requirement to stay awake most of the time for the 24 hours of the day, I have been drinking coffee. Okay, lemme just grab a pitcher of water. haha :D
