Staying energized & hydrated during the high temps is rather difficult if you ask me. I usually have great energy during the week but I feel a little off my game. It’s okay every once in a while right?
Now that I think about it, the energy in our house has been all around not normal. I really think the weather is to blame.
(Isn’t this picture cute? She’s been laying on him and hugging him more and more)
Ava’s also been taking longer naps and having a few lazy spurts here and there (I have no complaints about the naps!) and Cooper’s been lazy as well!
Every time we have walked Cooper this week he would lay down randomly. He did it quite a few times until I realized he’s not feeling the heat. So I shortened the walk duration and kept him in the Air Conditioner.
He does have a fur coat too so that could be the issue!
Yesterday it was 90 degrees. It seemed like every time I stepped outside or got in my car I felt the need to chug a glass of water. I was thirsty all day long. Does that ever happen to you?? I kept asking myself if I slept enough, if I needed a little more caffeine, but I just kept pushing through the day.
To Keep Hydrated & Energized: I took a multivitamin, drank at least 8 glasses of water plus some coconut water, smoothies
I ate fruits & veggies high in water like watermelon, carrots, cucumbers, peppers, & apples.
FINALLY, after Boot camp last night I actually got a big energy boost (thank you endorphins)!
When I got home from class I did a little extra stretching followed by a personal training session with Marc. He wanted to work out but didn’t want to do T-25 or Insanity. Those DVD’s tend to have a lot of jumping and Ava was asleep so he didn’t want to wake her up. Our house is kinda old too so when you jump the floor creeks in certain spots.
I decided to have him test out part of my Outdoor Boot Camp Workout. This circuit had no jumping so it was perfect! Before we started Marc warmed up for about 5 minutes.
Here’s a sneak peak at one of the circuits I have planned for Saturday’s class:
QUICK FULL BODY BLAST
STEP UPS (with weight overhead)
PERFORM EACH EXERCISE FOR 1 MINUTE BEFORE MOVING TO THE NEXT EXERCISE
It looks like today is going to be another hot one! I hope you all stay cool & hydrated. HAPPY FRIDAY!
Do you sometimes feel less energized during really hot days?
What do you do to keep your energy level up?
