Are you getting enough water?

Are you getting enough water? My number one rule above ALL else - drink plenty of water! Especially during hot summer months!

A good rule of thumb to follow - drink 1/2 of your body weight in ounces. For example, if you weigh 150 pounds, drink 75 ounces of water daily. Does that seem like a lot?? It will become second nature! Flavoring water with citrus or other fruit helps you stay on track of your water intake.

Benefits of drinking water:


-hydrated muscles grow and perform at a higher level, and are better protected against muscle breakdown


-drinking water helps maintain the balance of bodily fluids


-drinking water helps your kidneys rid your body of toxins


-drinking water helps maintain normal bowel function
