Are you Thirsty?

Water intake is so important for everyone, but if you exercise regularly, it’s even more important as you are losing water through sweat and keeping your internal organs cool.

How much water should you be drinking to stay hydrated? Check out this link to the Mayo Clinic: http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/water/NU00283

I like to have a glass of water as soon as I wake up, then some more with breakfast. A little with my workout, post workout, in the afternooon, etc. It’s not that hard if you keep a full bottle on hand wherever you go. Fruits and veggies are also a great source of water.

Cheers!

holiday blues?

Did the holidays give you more than you bargained for?

If you´re like most people, you may have imbibed more than usual in high calorie drinks and desserts. With all the variety and options to choose from at holiday parties and dinners, it´s hard to keep saying no.

With the new year upon us, it´s a great time to reasses your goals, past and present, and make a plan to reach those goals.

Setting small, attainable goals are more reasonable than setting large, mostly  unattainable goals.

Good luck on your path to health and wellness in 2011!

Drink Up!

Are you drinking enough water every day?

Staying hydrated is important at all times, especially if you’re active regularly.

Try to drink water as soon as you wake up, before every meal and snack, and in the evening.

Don’t like the taste? Try flavoring it with lemon or lime juice.

Pre made flavored waters may contain unhealthy ingredients, natural water is the way to go.

Enjoy your day!
