Are you hydrated?

The hazy, hot and humid days of summer are upon us & making sure you are drinking enough to keep your body hydrated & functioning properly is extremely important.  Here are some tips on ensuring that you are getting enough water in:

* Drink at least eight, eight-ounce servings of water each day. More time outside means more fluid that needs to be replenished

* Don’t wait until you’re thirsty to drink water. By the time you’re thirsty, you have already lost a couple or more cups of water from your body.

* Drink plenty of water throughout the day. Carry a bottle of water with you as you commute to work, or whenever you leave the house and may not be back for a while.

* Don’t substitute caffeinated coffees, teas and sodas for water. Caffeine acts as a diuretic, so does alcoholic beverages, causing you to lose water through increased urination.

* Keep a bottle of water on your desk if finding time to drink water is a problem. Or, visit the office water cooler and take water break rather than a coffee break.

* Once you start exercising, don’t stop drinking. Keep a bottle of water with you and drink throughout the duration of your workout.

* Don’t underestimate the amount of fluids lost from perspiration. You need to drink two cups of water for each pound lost following a workout.

* Start and end your day with a serving of water. Your body loses water while you sleep. Drink a serving of water while waiting for the morning coffee to brew.

* Common colds and flu’s can lead to dehydration. Keep a large bottle of water next to your bed so you can sip it throughout the day without having to get up.

Remember that when it’s warm outside, cold water—not carbonated soft drinks or sport drinks—is the best fluid for keeping hydrated. Cool water is absorbed much more quickly than warm fluids and may have a positive effect on cooling off your overheated

3 Day Ultimate Refresh results – Yup I’m late

Yes I’m late at posting my results ~ I got so busy planning my daughter’s 12th birthday party & then with the holiday weekend, I just forgot.

With that said, I was successful with my 3 days of following the plan & I was rewarded with a 3lb weight loss.  I definitely felt my stomach was less bloated.   I will definitely plan on doing the 3 Day Refresh on a monthly basis — I felt it was more about feeling better rather than the number on the scale!

Want to try the 3 Day Refresh?  Click here

Here goes nothing…..

Today starts my 3 day Refresh program.  I do not agree with fad diets or quick fixes and 3 day Refresh is NOT one of those!

The 3-Day Refresh is a scientifically designed program that helps you fast-track your weight loss, kick-start healthy eating, and get a clean break from bad nutrition habits. 3-Day Refresh is a simple, straightforward program that will help cleanse your body and improve the way you feel— without starving yourself. Unlike juice cleanses or liquid fasts which tend to be high in sugar and low in protein (leaving you feeling weak, hungry, and sluggish), this easy-to-follow program helps support your metabolism while nourishing your vital organs. (Beachbody.com)

So I will get to enjoy regular, clean food (but focusing on my Shakeology, fruits/vegetables and healthy fats) and cleanse my body of the nasty ingredients I have been consuming lately.

Before weight, measurements and pictures have all been taken ~ stay tuned for daily updates the next 3 days.

What a workout

3 days ago I started a new workout program ~ something to change up the mundane cardio rut I found myself in, something to shake things up with my metabolism.  I decided on Body Beast.  It is a 90 day strength training workout, splitting between different muscle groups and throwing some intense cardio circuit in there.  As a Beachbody coach, I have the All-Access pass for Beachbody on Demand ~ all of Beachbody’s workout programs from the comfort of my home ~ on my laptop, phone, iPad or stream it through my TV.

Now I’ve considered myself in shape ~ sure could I use to lose a few pounds or tone my muscles more, yup ~ but for 3 days now I have been walking a bit funny & watching my arms do a little shaky dance when trying to use them.  Guess that means I needed more toning than I thought.  But I absolutely love the feeling.  I love when walking up my stairs that I have to take it easy and grit my teeth with every step 🙂

I have taken my before pictures & measurements.  I cannot wait to see how my body changes over the course of the next 90 days!

Transitioning into healthier eating lifestyle

 

There are more & more fad diets on the market these days & so many people desperate to find the right “one” that works for them.  But in reality what they are doing is actually harming themselves.  Here is a great 8 week transition into a healthier eating lifestyle, rather than viewing it as a diet!

Just KISS

tmp619895826449170432

Do you seem to always be going back and forth with the latest fad diet craze?  Are you juicing for 3 days straight & then binge eat?  Are you just lost with how to be healthy?  Just KISS (Keep it Simple Silly)!

1. Be active every day ~ find ways to move EVERY DAY.  If you are at work, set your alarm to get up from your desk every hour and walk around the office, go walk the stairs, get outside for a quick walk.  

2. Fuel up on real food ~ steer away from the processed foods, refined carbs and high fat dishes.  

3. Create your own healthy environment ~ find different ways to get your exercise in.  Go for a hike, find a new park you can take the kids too, get outside and start cleaning up your yard.  

4. Stay true to your purpose ~ are you living your life with what you want to achieve?  We all have goals and dreams, is your lifestyle built around them?  

5. Believe you can succeed ~ learn to get rid of the negatively nellie sitting on your shoulder.  When the scale isn’t responding as fast as you want we tend to get disappointed and “throw in the towel”.  Look at what you have already accomplished & focus on other ways of measurement besides the scale.  Keep a positive mind & see the results faster!

6. Make healthy living fun ~ being healthy isn’t suppose to be a chore.  It is suppose to be fun and all in moderation!  Look at ways to make exercise fun ~ grab your spouse, grab your kids, grab a friend & go try something different.  For example gardening & yard clean up is something that needs to be done in spring, get outside and really work your heart & your muscles.  Just make it fun!
