Being a mom of four, it’s hard not to have an active lifestyle, especially when your hobby is riding horses. If I’m not running kids from point A to point B, I’m doing chores around the house, working out, walking or working with my horses. Spending time with my horses whether I’m riding working on ground exercises with them in my happy place. It’s my time to just escape from reality and think of nothing from the outside world. It’s the one place I can let go of all the stress from the outside world and just live for the moment. I’ve loved being around horses since I can remember and it’s definitely a love that has never faded. I’m thankful I’m in a position where I am able to continue doing what I love.
My kids have taken a liking to horseback riding and rodeos too! Which I think is awesome, it wasn’t that easy for any of us I will admit. However, both my girls faced their fears of falling off, and both learned what I meant when I told them “Everything you want is on the other side of fear.” Being on the back of a horse is such a magical experience, and when you run into that special horse, it makes everything else on the other side of fear worth every last moment you spend scared.
Now I not only get to have my alone time and disconnect from the world when I need to, but I also get to spend time with my girls doing something we all love. It’s awesome, I get to spend time teaching the how’s and why’s of the horse world. It’s such a special place for us all, I’m truly blessed to be able to share my love for horses with my kids. I hope it’s something they are able to carry on and share with their children.
Since Staying hydrated is so important this time of year I wanted to be sure and share a few tips to help keep you hydrated during the summer months regardless of how you are fitting your excersize into your day.
Three Tips to Help Keep You Hydrated This Summer
Over the years I’ve learned a few tricks to keep myself and my loved ones hydrated during the summer months here are my top three:
I normally wake up and drink my cup of coffee but after that I’m all about drinking something that keeps me hydrated. Typically I stick with water unless I’m outside sweating or getting my workout on then I turn to a sports drink like BODYARMOR LYTE.
They make some great apps that will help you track how much water you are drinking throughout the day. Check it out, it’s a great way to track how much water you are drinking during the day.
Dink something yummy to your tummy while keeping hydrated
I personally LOVE water so I don’t have an issue with drinking water but I do know plenty of people who just can drink water all day long. If you are one of these people you might consider something like BODYARMOR LYTE it’s low on caories AND it is naturally flavored, naturally sweetened, low calorie, and combines elecrolytes, vistamins and coconut water to help give you Super Hydration. Oh, and who can forget that there is ONLY 20 calories in each serving!

With it being summer it’s hard not to sweat during light to moderate activities which mean I need a sports drink that hydrates me, but I need something with few calories so I can continue my weight loss.
