Wellness Wednesday – Drink Your Water!

My fave wellness tip remains the same: drink your water! 💧

I definitely don’t always hit all my marks nutritionally, but the one constant is my water consumption!

Keeping myself hydrated helps me in so many ways (including often keeping me from looking my age 😉) and it’s free AND accessible!

Do you consume enough water?

Mythbusting Monday – Water While Exercising

• MYTHBUSTING MONDAY •

Myth:

“Drinking water while exercising will give you cramps”

Truth:

I certainly wouldn’t recommend chugging it, because who wants to jump around with a belly full of liquid? But sips here and there to hydrate you and replenish yourself during a sweat fest will not normally give you cramps.

You should be drinking water before, during, and after exercise to prevent dehydration. Failure to do so can lead to headaches, fatigue, dizziness, and cramps.

Stay hydrated! Mine is empty, time for a refill! 💦

Thirsty Thursday – Good Old H20!

Oftentimes, in my groups or in conversation, I am asked what’s my favorite tip, or what piece could I not do this journey without, and truthfully, while I have learned a LOT of different key components, my number one has not changed – DRINK YOUR WATER!!! For such an easy, accessible component, it packs SUCH a punch in your journey to wellness!

Did you know that water makes up almost 85% of your brain, about 80% of your blood and an average 50% of your lean muscle? Water helps eliminate toxins from the body, is essential for proper digestion and nutrient absorption, and basically plays a vital role in nearly every bodily function, which is all the more reason to ensure you get your h20 in!

Aim for half your body weight in ounces – you can do it! The effects on your body are SO worth getting into the habit!
