I wrote this post while participating in a blog campaign by Kraft’s Crystal Light Pure Fitness and received information to facilitate my article. Fitness Magazine compensated me for my participation. Opinions expressed are my own.
Translation: You know me, People. Indeed this is a blog campaign, but were it not something I believed in they could dangle the opportunity to be on The Ellen Show in front of me & Id decline. I just cain’t sell out that way. Right or wrong I love me some Crystal Light®.
One of the things I learned *quickly* after my first summer in Texas is you’re not supposed to mention the raging heart.
It took this native Pittsburgher a while to pick up on the myrid social cues (it’s the way I roll I guess) but even I finally did.
No matter the temps, no matter the fact you’re such a sweater you commence perspiring after simply reading the weather forecast (**raises hand**), no matterNOMATTER we Texans are supposed to pretend not to notice the heat.
Well, this MizFit notices.
And this MizFit kvetches if even just to the poor Ren Men who’s forced to at least pretend to listen.
What’s the point of all that back-story?
Or, more specifically, avoiding dehydration.
While symptoms of dehydration differ from person to person (because the body is a complex network of systems & everyone’s bod is slightly different) there are a few warning signals that are pretty common across the dehydration-board:
- Excessive thirst
- Loss of appetite
- Dry skin
- Dark colored urine
- Dry mouth
How does this all tie in with Crystal Light (here’s where we return to the notion at the start of my only taking sponsored posts from products I actually use)?
I’m here to give you my best tip for staying hydrated and, should you make it to the end of my post, tell you how *your* best tip can potentially win you some fab prizes.
Or, more aptly put, into tubes.
I’m renown for not being enough of a water drinker & I need a little somethin’somethin’ in my H2O to get me to consume enough. Especially in the summertime.
As a result, should you peruse my freezer from March to September, there’s always a vast array of frozen Crystal Light tubes waiting to be released from their confines and s-l-i-d into my water bottle.
The water remains cooler longer and the Miz remains interested in drinking it because it’s FLAVORED.
(Sad? Perhaps. True? Fo’shizzle)
New in my freezer?
Debuting Summer 2010?
Crystal Light® Pure Fitness.
Crystal Light® Pure Fitness has no artificial sweeteners (which I know many of you will adore), no preservatives/artificial colors, is only 15 calories per serving & is available grape, strawberry kiwi, and lemon-lime.
Of additional excitement, to this gluten-free misfit anyway, is that Crystal Light® Pure Fitness is, well, gluten-free!
**mops brow & requires hydration after that little Pure Fitness rant**
