Happy Friday! It’s time for your fit and healthy Friday tip.
Today’s Tip: Stay Hydrated
It’s very important to stay hydrated at all times especially during exercise. Drink water before, during and after any type of exercise. Water helps your body maintain a normal temperature and helps you to have a better workout.
I drink water throughout the day, every day but I make sure to focus on drinking a few cups of water about an hour before I workout and then more right before I workout and of course several more cups during and after my workouts. I keep a water bottle by my side all day long.
Some of you may be saying that you just can’t stand the taste of water, so I challenge you to keep trying. Add a squeeze of lemon or an orange slice to it and see if that makes a difference for you. It took me a while to drink water on a consistent basis (I was a heavy soda drinker for so many years) but once I made the commitment to do it, I found that I felt really good. I haven’t touched a soda in over 3 years.
Do you stay well hydrated? Will you challenge yourself to drink more water starting today?
