The air has been so dry around my neck of the woods, so I always start my day off with a little moisturizer, and St. Ives Timeless Skin is my favorite. You get so much bang for your buck, and my skin really soaks this stuff up.
I like to throw on work-out clothes right out of the gate because I am so much less likely to skip out on the work-out if I am already dressed. I like to work-out on my lunch breaks, and I just feel more productive if I throw on some work-out attire. It's like half the battle is already won.
Breakfast is huge for me. I have never been one to skip out on breakfast (or any meal for that matter), and cereal is my go-to to kick start my metabolism. I eat it every morning and never get tired of it. If Parker is gone, half the time I will eat it for dinner too!
The last item, Drip Drop Hydration Powder, is something new I've been trying. Fun fact: I used to get TERRIBLE headaches. I actually had an MRI a few years back just to make sure nothing was wrong. I would get headaches daily, and the only thing that would cure them was a good night's sleep. Not the best remedy when it's 9 AM and you have a day's worth of work to accomplish. We finally figured out that my headaches were caused by dehydration. That was it. I just wasn't drinking enough, and that's why the headaches would start up. Knowing my body and that I am prone to the side-effects of dehydration, I make it a priority to be constantly drinking. Once I have a headache, drinking water will not work to get rid of it, but it will prevent them from starting if I take action early enough.
DripDrop allows me to hydrate from the get-go and start my day out on the right note. I found it at CVS in the baby aisle (it's a little known fact that the really good products are always tucked away in the baby aisle). I chose the berry flavor and enjoy my hydration drink first thing in the morning. This way, I am plenty hydrated for my lunch-time work-out and can keep going strong throughout the day.
I like to read the fine print before trying new products, and DripDrop sold me. It has 2-3 times the electrolytes and half the calories of sports drinks, and it hydrates 34% better than water alone. I haven't had a headache since using it, and anyone who is prone to headaches can say headache-free days are good days. The effects of dehydration are no joke!
