Staying Hydrated.

Have you ever been thirsty? Well if you have then you already know a little about dehydration. When you feel thirsty it's too late because dehydration has begun. Drinking your daily dose of water is the breath of life we need. Drinking water helps digestion, keeps skin healthy, and feeds our life cells. Some days my drinking is not perfect and I can tell because I start to feel tired, thirsty, or get a headache. On days when you are low on energy, ask yourself? How much have I had to drink? And what have I been drinking today. I love coffee and tea but I must limit my intake on both in order to get my daily dose of H2O. If you don't already: I challenge you to start increasing your water intake. I guarantee you will see and feel the difference.

Fit Friday

Today begins a holiday weekend and just like many holidays in our country, Easter seems to revolve around food. Unfortunately, Easter revolves around many sweetie sweets! Don't let this holiday that has a higher purpose derail your efforts. I took measures and stocked up on fresh strawberries, bought a new bag of coffee, stocked up some favorite tea flavors, and popcorn that can be air-popped. I am headed out to the movies this evening and announced to my husband "no popcorn for me." I just do not want the extra calories. I am planning a 50-60 minute workout for Saturday morning and more than likely will do some HIIT training on Easter. That's just to remind myself how good my workouts and my progress feels. Hopefully these tips are beneficial for some of you. It's not too late to keep this weekend festive and enjoy your continued success.
