I had to get a fasting blood test in the morning the other day and even though I drank a half a glass of water before leaving the house, the phlebotomist poked me twice and got nothing. It was like trying to squeeze juice out of a raisin. I didn’t realize how dehydrated our bodies are in the mornings. Though it makes sense now that I think about it. I mean, we sleep for 7 or 8 hours with no water breaks in between. It’s no wonder we’re dried out. Since then, I’ve been making myself drink a full glass of water before heading out for work, or before eating anything, if it’s not a work day. I imagine it plumps up my pruney body as the tiny shriveled up veins take their first drink of water. So yeah, moral of the story, drink water in the morning. Even if you don’t feel thirst, you need it.
