E-mails to Christine:
We eat out a lot, could you give us some suggestions for Japanese and Chinese?
Carry a water bottle with you when you exercise.
Hydration influences effectiveness during exercise. Drink a cup of water
prior to physical activity and an additional cup of water every 15-20 minutes
Unsure if you are getting enough water? A good way
to check is to weigh yourself before and after exercise. If you weigh less
after exercise, you have lost water. Replenish this loss with 2 cups of
water for every pound lost during exercise.
