I’m trying something new. Some of my clients asked for a challenge, so I created Healthy Habits Challenges for the rest of this year. The first challenge starts this month. We’re doing a 21-day AB Challenge and a Water Challenge. Why not a 30 day challenge? Because it takes 21 days to create a habit and most people fall off after 2 weeks, so let’s see if 3 weeks works.I’ve posted the 21-Day AB Challenge here and on my other social media sites:
You need to be well hydrated while you're on the go in your busy day to day busy routine!!! Being hydrated by just 2-3 percent will impair aerobic workouts up to 10 percent.
Yes this means no water no weight loss for you my friend. Luckily there is a chance you can lose all the weight you want and the remedy isssssssss !!!! Yep you guessed it WATER
I haven't posted on the blog for a while. I just haven't been feeling well. I've been tired. I've had stomach pain. Just not feeling good. I haven't felt well for a while now. Everything came to a head a couple weeks ago when I went into the hospital with severe pain. It turns out that is was a huge kidney stone. Kidney stones always seemed to be such a small thing to me. The reality is, kidney stones are a BIG DEAL. It's more than just the extreme pain. A kidney stone can damage your kidney and can cause infection. One of the best ways to avoid kidney stones is to drink water.
We all know how important water is for our basic survival. However, for athletes and active individuals, water is simply vital if we want to achieve optimal performance. Here are 5 important reasons why you should never neglect the importance of water:
Meat lovers, that's a lot of water you're eating.
Of course you care about the environment. You turn off the faucet when you brush your teeth. You take showers instead of baths. You've even installed a low pressure shower head. But unless you're a vegetarian, you are wasting a lot of water perhaps without realizing it.
If you are trying to lose weight, then I am sure you are focussing on what you are eating on a regular basis, measuring each gram of cereal, monotoring your carbohydrate intake, etc., which is great, however, how many of you are actually paying attention to what you are drinking? Here are some facts about the different things we drink on a regular basis: A 12oz can of soda has 39 grams of sugar and 140 calories or 9 3/4 teaspoons of sugar! A 8 oz redbull has 27 grams of sugar and 108 calories or 6 3/4 teaspoons of sugar!
1. Pay attention to the descriptions- focus on food with descriptions such as steamed, broiled, or grilled. Obviously avoid anything deep fried or covered in sauce.
2. Drink water with your meal- Soda is empty calories. And as you know SUGAR IS THE ENEMY.
3. Hold the extras: be aware of dressings, spreads, cheese, and other condiments that are loaded with fat and calories.
