Are You a Drinker? Do you drink too much? Too little?

Drinking is good for you……but not too much. Are you a drinker?  If so, are you drinking too much?  Or are you a sometimes drinker or a seldom drinker, and are you getting enough to drink?  And how much should we really be drinking? I’m a drinker!  I always have a bottle of water…or some coffee and on occasion a diet gingerale or some lemonade beside me so that I can take a sip every so often.  I keep myself well hydrated for the most part.  But then I also lead a minimum 11 fitness classes...

Treasures and Trash

 It is not even 10 am when I began writing this and it has already been a day filled with treasures!!! I was able to sit outside in shorts to drink my coffee  and journal this morning! In February!! How great is it that it was warm enough to do that in February?!? I also had my first morning neighborhood walk of the year today and it was so freaking wonderful! The reason it was the first one of the year is because I am super sensitive to cold and it is not good for me to be out when temperature...
