Water is essential to keep us fit and healthy. But it can also improve the way we function, the way we feel and the way we look. We are constantly reminding each other to drink water and stay hydrated.

Did you know, Approximate 60% of your body weight is water. Staying hydrated is the key to many aspects of health. Most people take water for granted. We don’t usually think about it until warmer months when we are sweating buckets. Your body is constantly losing water through your breath as you exhale through your skin as you perspire and through urination. This water must be replaced to maintain good health. Dehydration is the cause of many headaches.

When participating in physical activity perspiration further increases this water loss therefore adequate hydration or replacement of water in our bodies is extremely important

Proper hydration is critical for optimal body functioning but it is also important to take in the right fluids.

Most fruit juices contain sugar (high fructose, corn syrup)that may not assist in proper hydation due to slow absorption. You are better off eating fruit in its pure form; they can supply nutrients and fiber as well as assisting in hydration because the majority of the piece of fruit is water.

Sweat is the way in which your body cools itself. If you are dehydrated and stop perspiring you are in danger of overheating. Don’t wait until you’re thirsty to drink water by then you are already dehydrated.

Now here are some exciting reasons we should all drink more water.. weight loss, heart healthy, more energy, headache cure, healthy skin, cleansing the toxins out of your body, and so much more.. ( dance break)

If you don’t care much for the taste.. Add a squirt of lemon, a squeeze of lime, a few sprigs of fresh mint or a cucumber or orange slice. You can even be so bold as to add a few berries or watermelon. What ever gets you to drink it up 🙂 We personally like to make a pitcher of water and add slices of fruit, cucumber and some mint! Yum!

Here is one of our favorite simple concoctions here @ TONE .

Grab a large pitcher:
One navel orange sliced
Half cucumber sliced
One large slice grapefruit
Three to four sprigs of mint.
Add water, ice! DONE … Vodka optional.. 🙂

Two women + one dream = TONE

Two women, one dream and a LOT of hard work.

Looking back over the last few years, it has been an amazing journey with many ups and downs but we wouldn’t have traded it for the world. From the moment Alicia and I met each other we knew we were meant to work together. I can remember the exact moment that we met each other way back when in December 2007.  That was the moment that changed our lives as we knew it.

We have been dreaming, developing, creating and working together ever since. We are two women who are passionate and determined and truly love what we do. We are thrilled to be able to share it with our clients, friends, loved ones as well as everybody and anybody we meet.
