Water, the ultimate resource

How much water do you drink on a daily basis?  Did you know that you are dehydrated when you wake up in the morning?  The best thing you can do is to drink 16oz of water first thing.

  • Water will fire up your metabolism (I drink it when I feel tired and immediately I will wake up).
  • It also helps your kidneys flush out toxins.
  • Also, it helps your brain function better.  This amazing and functional organ in your body is 75% water so if you feel like you can’t concentrate or focus, you may be dehydrated.
  • It will help you eat less.  Drinking water with your meals will help you feel fuller faster.

So, what are you waiting for??  Drink up!  Happy Thursday~Carrie

I saw a post from a trainer in DC this morning on Instagram that said

“Some people want to use exercise as a punishment for being overweight.  They don’t realize that their diet is delivering the real punishment.”

This can’t be further from the truth and what I preach all the time.  You can’t out exercise a bad diet.  It also makes your workouts so much harder when you do not eat to nourish your body.  Why would you want to punish yourself twice?  When you eat well, you feel well, and when you feel well you WANT to exercise.  It is so hard to motivate yourself on a bad diet.  So make sure that you keep your diet clean and energizing so your fit lifestyle will just fall into place.  Otherwise it will stay a constant mind battle.

Happy Monday!
