🌊3 Reasons Why You Should Drink more Water

Water is literally life, and I haven’t realized this until recently. I am extremely late. I have been drinking more water, and I do notice some changes in my skin and my body.

But here are a few reasons why it is important to drink more water.

💧1. Helps skin feel more hydrated. I have really oily skin , and it has been like that for basically my whole life. So for the past few days , as I have been drinking a 1.5 – 2 Liters of water per day , my skin is starting to appear less oily.

💧2. When I drink more water around lunch time, it deters my wanting to eat everything in sight when I am on my break from work. I’ve even noticed I’ve been picking up healthier options to eat at lunch time like grilled chicken sandwiches or wraps.

💧3. I feel revitalized and refreshed. I feel like I function a lot better, being that I work a lot on my feet. Water helps detoxify your body daily , and helps lubricates joints naturally. A large part of out bodies are composed of water, so why not continue to contribute to that?

Water may be boring and distasteful but more of it can change your life if you are already drinking your recommended intake !

Tip : Add lemon or fruit to add more antioxidants to your water 🍋🍊

Sick and tired of being sick and tired ?😑

I honestly believe that natural remedies are the best energy boosters and are great for when you have a cold. So here are three natural things you can try to help you get over a cold and/or boost your energy level.

1. Chia Seeds.

Chia seeds are very popular in South America. Evidence showed that the Mayans and the Aztecs used chia seeds as a good source of energy. Studies have also shown that they are good to keep you full and are great for digestion. So add this to your smoothie , yogurt or salad. A bag of chia seeds can range from 7 to 8 bucks and can hold about 30 servings, which equates to about 27 cents a serving. That’s a steal for an organic product ! 👌

2. Ginger

Ginger is my go-to remedy for stomach aches. Ginger tea is usually the form I consume it in. Just boil a fresh root for 8-10 minutes , add some honey if you would like and you are good to go. Ginger has been seen to help with circulation, PMS , diabetes , and even stress. And it’s not even expensive to buy at the store , so take advantage of this !!💯🙌

3. Iron Supplement

Are you consuming enough iron ? Women have been commonly known to have low iron levels because we lose blood during menstruation every month. Low iron levels can lead to feeling fatigue even if you had enough rest. An organic supplement or even consuming more cooked spinach can increase your iron levels, therefore it may increase your energy level. 💪

There are several more remedies that could help increase your energy level but I hope these help !

So excited , NEXT STEPS !

Hello everyone !

After starting a business a few months ago, encouraging a fitness a healthy lifestyle along with selling my own custom activewear I have decided to take things up a notch !

I am currently working on obtaining my AFPA Weight Management Certification. With this I want to create a virtual fitness program for busy women like moms, professionals, and students who have fluctuating schedules. In a life like this, every minute counts , and sometimes it could be hard to keep track or put in time for your health or fitness.

I am always on the run , doing a million things all the time and sometimes I forget to take  the time to take care of me. I want to create a program where I can show women easy, low-cost , healthy recipes as well as have easy to follow at-home fitness routines that can be done in 15 to 20 minutes.

Gym memberships can be very useful , but can take up a lot of time and can burn a few dollars every month that could  either be used for gas money, books, healthy meals or bills.  Health and fitness is very important , and I believe that it doesn’t have to cost a lot of money or time .

4 Things I learned About the KETO Diet

As I found myself hearing more and more about the Ketogenic or keto diet, I have noted a few things that I wanted to share just in case someone is looking for information about it. 

 

  1.  The Ketogenic diet  is composed of eating foods that are very high in fats, some protein with a little bit of carbs. This allows the body to to convert from burning glycogen(fuel) to burning ketones. This is said to break down fats more effectively while helping to regulate metabolism. 
  2. Some benefits of the diet are to support athletic performance, weight loss, and improving body composition. 
  3. The key maintaining ketosis is to keep the amount of fat intake high, protein in moderation , and carbohydrate intake very low. An example of this would be having a meal plan that contains 75% of its calories from fat, 20% from protein, and 5%  from carbs. 
  4. A good on-the-go shake that contains this ideal meal plan is the MYOPlex Keto Shake that contains the required amount of macronutrients to support the keto diet. 

There is plenty more to learn about this diet, so please do your research and ask your doctor about it first. 

I hope some of this helps as you are conquering your fitness journey !
