Thirsty Thursday

 

It is Thirsty Thursday over here at Step Onto My Mat and that means that we learn more about hydrating our bodies.

Do you know all of the benefits of adding fresh lemon to your water? Studies show you can lower the glycemic index of a meal by 20-40% just by adding a few teaspoons of lemon juice to your meal, say…in your glass of water. (I know that you have water with your meals-not soda, right?!?!?!)

Not only that, but lemon water boosts your immune system, balances pH, aids digestion, clears skin, is a natural diuretic, and hydrates your lymph system.

I have warm lemon water in the morning as soon as I wake. This is an ayurvedic ( system of traditional medicine native to the Indian subcontinent and a form of alternative medicine) practice. Read here for more on that practice.

Stephie Wharam

Stephie Wharam

I am a strong, independent woman that has always taken care of myself. I am proud of the woman that I am. I have a ton of love in my heart and share it as often as I can. I often get burned, but that will never change the love I give to others. I'm gonna shine :) My name is Stephanie, but I like to be called Stephie because I feel like it better represents the cute, lovey nature of who I am. I am from and located in beautiful Richmond, Virginia. I am a very busy, active 32 year old. I work full time and go to college 3/4 time. I also teach three yoga classes a week, have a family, and find time for my own health and fitness. If I can find 4% or less a day to work out so can you! I love yoga and kickboxing. I am a registered yoga teacher and fitness coach with Beachbody. I love to inspire and help people. Fitness and nutrition are very important to me. I am loving and bubbly and talk A LOT :). I have a dog and two cats. That is me and my life :)
