We all know that we need to drink water, but I bet a huge number of your just don’t get around to it. Here are some great reasons to work on hydrating yourself better.



Weekend workout #2 – near Englewood High School at 9:00am
Please see “Upcoming Events” for directions to the workout
Tips of the day:
#1 РDrinking water is essential to keeping your body and mind running. Shoot for half your body weight in ounces each day to stay hydrated.  Example: If you are 140lbs you should consume approximately 70 ounces of water per day.
#2 РDecrease your stress where you can! Stress can reek havoc on our bodies. During times of high stress our body triggers releases the hormone cortisol to help the body cope.  Higher than optimal cortisol levels can cause sleeplessness, added body fat especially in the abdominal area, sugar cravings, weight gain and metabolic syndrome. Find an activity that helps releave stress in your life. Activities such as yoga, swimming, reading (for fun), sauna, Pilates and walking are just a few of the great activities to help you decrease stress.
