Red Take 2
Did you catch the first edition of the Sports Nutrition Series on Hydration?! You should!
I definitely need to work on following my own advice on this issue! I’m horrible with drinking!! Know why you don’t see any drinks on the blog except for coffee or wine? I rarely drink anything else. Seriously. I know it’s bad. I’m working on it. I just don’t get thirsty and drinking makes me full and nauseous. I need to work on training my gut!!
I’m better about drinking water when it comes to exercise, but still have lots of room for improvement.
What are your strategies for drinking more? I try using low-calorie flavored beverages like Crystal Light and SoBe Lifewater (my fave!). I also drink more if I use a straw. (I know, I’m weird, I think we’ve established that.) I know lots of strategies- I just don’t use them!
This morning I’m eating my oatmeal out of my giant red mug in honor of GoRed attempt #2. Last Friday’s event was cancelled due to the stupid snow, so hopefully it will happen today as scheduled. I’ll tell ya all about it later this afternoon 🙂
Just a typical oat combo: oats, wheat germ, flax seed, cinnamon, nutmeg, and coconut, with walnuts, banana, and PB!
I love this huge mug!!! It’s actually from our Red Cup Party in December- it’s what we were collecting coins in before it overflowed and we switched to a big box! I can’t believe I haven’t used it then…I’ll be able fit WAY more oatmeal in this than any of my other bowls 🙂
Olympics start tonight!! I thought of something to add to my bucket list:
Carry the Olympic torch!!! How cool would that be?! 🙂
