Ways to stay hydrated after a workout

I talked a little bit about my fitness routine earlier this year and mentioned in my 2015 goals that getting back into shape and taking my exercise regimen seriously was going to be a top priority.

Last October, something told me to buck up and pull into 9Round Fitness in Round Rock. I had noticed the sign numerous times driving by to get a pedicure (they're in the same shopping center). Anyway, I walked in and chatted it up with the owner. The next day I had my first workout (your first one is always FREE) and I have been hooked ever since.

I needed something that was fast, fun, motivating and effective. This is a hardcore 30-minute circuit workout using boxing gloves, bags, weights and resistance. The beauty is that you can go at anytime during the classes or schedules. 

It didn't happen over night, but I am finally starting to see a difference in my body, muscles reforming, stamina growth, greater strength and better sleeping patterns. 

I have stuck to my personal expectations for myself, and it's truly mind freeing; a weird sort of high. Taking all life's stress out on a punching bag, letting it all go and pushing my limits while "Tootsie Roll" & "Eye of the Tiger" blares over the speakers is a 30-minute adrenaline rush.  

But something else needed to be added to my healthier habits...kicking my extreme Diet Dr. Pepper habit. You guys, I would open a can on my way to the gym and finish it off after my workout. Crazy, right? You would think I hadn't heard of the word "water" before.

I started getting a little weak and would sometimes feel like I was going to pass out cold a few times when I first started a few months ago. Hmmmmm, I wonder why??? It's not rocket science. I was dehydrated and needed more water in my life. 

I have always struggled with drinking enough throughout the day. I need to have a "flavor" in my beverage. Simple water doesn't do it for me. But, I knew I had to figure out a way to drink more...for my own good. 

Enter DripDrop Hydration Powder. It has been a lifesaver over the last few weeks. I pack a bottle of water and pour a packet in after every workout. I really love the berry flavor, but they have a lemon one too. It's made drinking water more tolerable and I finish off a bottle in no time flat. I have also noticed a huge difference in how I feel after a workout. It is an awesome and easy way to get refueled and rehydrated...anytime during the day.
