End of Week Review 7/31/2015

What a week! Two deep topics for this week's blog posts required a lot of time. That's why Trail of Blood (Part 5) was a day late. Sorry! The last thing I really want to do is give you wrong information or something very poorly done. Although, I am not totally satisfied, I wanted to get it out to you. Have you ever made something for other people, looked at it deciding it needed more work, then when no one was looking you fixed a bit more? Well, that is so me! So, if you go back to one of these posts to re-read, you might see some small changes here and there. Perfectionism has it's pluses and minuses!

This week's posts:

Weight Loss Challenges

Exercise Tip of the Week

Our bodies crave water. Yes! Pure, clear water. Our body weight is 60% water or 70% of our lean body tissue! It is critical for our survival. Water regulates our body temperature, aids in absorption of nutrients, eliminates waste, protection of vital organs, maintains blood volume, and served as a means for biochemical reactions throughout the body. So why don't we drink it? Because we want flavor. However, we tend toward carbonated and caffeinated beverages that either dehydrate us or leech calcium from our bones and teeth.The best thing to drink: Water! Try adding fruit chunks or slices for a flavor boost!

If we are working or exercising in hot, humid weather, we can easily dehydrate without realizing it. Signs of dehydration include: feeling hot, stop sweating, nausea, dizziness, fainting, dark urine, reduced blood flow to brain, and low blood pressure. It's important to keep water on hand, taking sips often. Drink 8 oz. of water before beginning to work. Thirst is an indicator that you are already beginning to dehydrate. If you are working or exercising for more than 2 hours, it is time to replenish electrolytes with Gatorade, Powerade, or another electrolyte replacement drink. Water. It's the best thing for your body!

Nutrition Info of the Week
You may have seen the My Food Plate by the USDA, but never taken the time to check out their website. This symbol helps people understand how much of each type of food should be included in lunch and dinner. On it, you may customize your needs to get the recommended food intake, a better idea of how much your body needs to lose, maintain, or gain weight. Take time to check it out at www.myplate.gov.


May God bless your week!
