Staying hydrated has always been a challenge for me. I’m super active and like to be outside in the sun as much as physically possible but I get tired of drinking water all day every day. I know to stay away from soda, it gives me all the tummy problems, and I know that it’s important to drink a ton to stay in the best form for my lifestyle but I have a tendency to get bored of water and when I’m bored I just won’t do something. Which can lead to dehydration and dehydration leads to days off the trail, days inside not doing what I love and that’s even worse than just drinking the damn water.

I’ve tried everything, I’ve bought the fancy water bottles, tried all the fancy flavored water packets, and a few of the sparkling water options out there, but NOTHING has me super stoked on it. That is of course until I was given a big beautiful bottle of Gerolsteiner in my IDEA World goody bag. I chugged the whole bottle and couldn’t get enough. I didn’t get the burps like I usually do and I felt like I was getting water with a little something extra, there was something special about it and I wanted more!
I’m super excited to be a part of the Gerolsteiner #SparklingDetox, September 12- 16, to take advantage of this awesome opportunity to up my hydration game! So the something special I mentioned before, the magic of this awesome mineral water is that it’s packed full of things that the body needs but cannot create on its own. Gerolsteiner is jam-packed with calcium, magnesium, and bicarbonate all of which help your body maintain fluid balance and supplies you with necessary minerals needed to aid in digestion, support your energy metabolism, and protect your joints (HUGE FOR ME! Hiking long distances with a pack on can be hell on your knees).
Are you in to #SparklingDetox with me? The whole idea is that we’ll drink Gerolsteiner sparkling water for 5 days of the challenge with no sodas, juices, alcohol, coffee, or tea. It sounds tough, but I know it’s possible and I can’t wait to see the outcome and see how my body feels! I’m all about finding that perfect way for me to stay hydrated!
