I hope you are enjoying this last week of January! Time is flying by!

Summary: Most of us love the summer months, spending time anywhere the weather’s warm and working up a good sweat.

Of course, I hope you get a chance to read the entire article. 

But, if you are pressed for time, I want to draw your attention to this part: "During times of increased activity or exercise, we lose the balance of electrolytes because we sweat more. The best way to offset this process and prevent dehydration is to consume more water than usual. Drink a glass before a workout, at least one during and one immediately after. All in all, aim for about 1.5 to 2.5 cups for shorter workouts and about three extra cups for longer workouts that last more than one hour."

Drink up! :)

Until next time!
