Hot Thursday..

Oh my goodness…It has been so hot, I feel like I am melting..One thing that I am doing is making sure that I am drinking enough water. I can not stress how important it is for you to stay hydrated.

Dehydration is a silent killer!! Have you ever felt thirsty? You are already on your way to being dehydrated. Current recommendations say to drink at least 64 ounces of water each day, but that does not include coffee, tea, soda, or juice, that is in addition too.

I try to get at least 6 or seven glasses of water a day but I also add water filled foods like, sprouts, lettuce, jello, fruit and yogurt. Each of these food has a high water content so add them to your diet in the hot summer months or even in the winter when dehydration is often ignored or overlooked.

Believe it or not taking a bath and soaking allows water into your body, you know that you have enough water when you start to wrinkle like a prune, it is really an neurological sign from your brain (cannot remember what it represents), but hey I took anatomy and physiology over 15 years ago!!

Have a cold glass of water, a jello or a nice juicy orange on this hot day and feel your insides get happy!

Small changes are still changes!!!
