Have you been spending a lot of time outdoors in the summer heat?  I have and I love it!  Working up a good sweat is such a great feeling, but do you ever wonder how much water should you drink in the summer?  Staying hydrated is such a challenge, especially when the weather is hot and steamy.  It's even more important for an outdoor workout right now and staying hydrated is key!  So, here are my 5 tips for staying hydrated when the weather is hot:

How Much Water Should You Drink in the Summer?

Staying hydrated means drinking water all the time.  I try to drink 64 ounces of water a day (more when I workout!).  I keep a water bottle on my desk and I always have one in my purse!

• I like filtered, cold water.  Fill up lots of water bottles and keep them in your refrigerator.  When it’s time to workout, bring cold water along.  You will be so refreshed!

• Know how much is just enough for you. Dehydration can leave you feeling sluggish, tired, and even give you a terrible headache, so make sure you’re feeling good!  Stay in tune with your body.  Remember, moderation is best.

• Load up on fresh fruits and vegetables - foods with high water content!

• Drink lemon water if you get bored with the lack of taste in plain water.
