HYDRATION TIPS –The weather is changing again, hydrate yourself throughout the day!

Remember that our bodies are 2/3 water. It is through drinking water, that life-sustaining nutrients are transported throughout our bodies.

When putting together home emergency supplies, experts recommend storing one gallon of bottled water per person per day and enough canned or shelf-stable food for up to a week.

·         Put a bottle of water in your backpack, your gym bag and your briefcase.
·         Keep a bottle of water on your desk at the office.
·         Establish a water routine that will allow you to get into the habit of drinking the appropriate amounts of water each day.
·         Drink water when exercising.
·         Add a couple drops of lemon to your water bottle.

What is a workout?

A workout is 25% perspiration & 75% DETERMINATION.  Stated another way.   It is one part physical exertion & 3 parts self-discipline.  Doing it is easy once you get started!
A workout makes you better today than you were yesterday.  It strengthens the body, relaxes the mind, and toughens the spirit.  When you workout regularly your problems diminish & your confidence grows.
A workout is a personal triumph over laziness & procrastination.  It is the badge of a WINNER –        
the mark of an organized, goal-oriented person who has taken charge of his or her destiny.
A workout is a wise use of time & an investment in excellence.  It is a way of preparing for life’s challenges & proving to yourself that you have what it takes to do what is necessary.
A workout is a key that helps unlock the door to opportunity & success.  Hidden within each of us is an extraordinary force.  Physical & mental fitness are the triggers that can release it.
A workout is a form of rebirth.   When you finish a good workout, you don’t simply feel better,
