Motivated to Hydrate | Motivational Bottle

It's kind of my "job" as Girl Gone Healthy to tell you to drink water and stay hydrated. Why, you may ask? Well water does so much more for us than quench thirst. When we talk about water weight loss wise and health wise we are breaking ground that far surpasses being thirsty or drinking
