WELCOME TO THE 6 WEEK NCFIT SUMMER RESET SERIES!
Health is so much more than just fitness. Join us these last few weeks of summer and give your body the thank you it deserves. We will help you to learn and develop the habits to keep the positive momentum going all the way through the end of the year. The goal is to build sustainable CONSISTENCY, not PERFECTION! We will go over 6 healthy habits and help you adopt each one. First thing's first....WATER!
LET'S TALK HYDRATION!
Water makes up over 60% of our body and over 90% of our blood. It is the one thing every single organism on this planet needs to survive.
The problem is… too many of us drink just enough water to survive and not necessarily enough to THRIVE.
HOW MUCH IS ENOUGH?
Good question! Like with anything related to your own INDIVIDUAL HEALTH, it depends. But here is a good place to start.
For this entire week, aim for half your bodyweight in ounces daily. Herbal tea counts. A lemon slice in your water - COUNT IT! Sparkly beverage - YUP!
Fun Police Alert - Caffeinated, alcoholic, or sweetened drinks do not count. Sorry!
And remember, coming up short or missing a few days is OK. The goal is consistency. Aiming for perfect is oftentimes the reason we fall short of doing just a little bit better.
180 lbs Male - 90 Ounces of water. 11.25 cups of water
140 lbs Female - 70 Ounces of water. 8.75 cups of water
TIPS AND TRICKS
Sound like a lot of water? Here are some helpful tips to help you reach your daily goal!
- Wake and Chug - Before you do coffee, get some ounces in! Start your day with a win so that you are not chugging right before bed.
- Add Some Flavor - Need something with flavor? Try a lemon slice! Add a little flavor to your water and some spice to your life!
- Set a Timer - We all have busy schedules. Add an “H2O CHECK” to your calendar or as a recurring alarm on your phone. Bonus points for taking a walk each time your alarm goes off!
See if you can get your ounces in for the rest of the week and take stock of how you feel. Chances are you'll be ready to get after it!
