Let's Talk About "Hydration"!
Did I just hear an audible GROOOOAN???
Yup. The reason I heard so many groans emanating from my readers is that you all think you know the drill… Never fear - this won't be the typical, "Drink 8, 8oz glasses of water per day" lecture!
Most “diets” require us to guzzle water by the bucket-full (how exciting) – Not because we actually need to drink alarming quantities of water, but because the "diet gurus" pushing the crazy fad-diets want us to load up on water, to hydrate... but also so we do not feel hungry or deprived...
Ever been there? ME TOO… so, I am groaning right along with you! I don't know about you, but water never fills my rumbling tummy if I am truly hungry.
Trim Healthy Mama is brilliant; we don’t have to spend our days feeling deprived, hungry, or dissatisfied... and we don't do things “just because"! Now, don't get me wrong - Of course, water IS important, but there is far more to hydrating [and nourishing] a THM than just water. From a sheer JOY perspective, a healthy level of hydration need NOT be “boring” or "tasteless"!
PROPER HYDRATION WILL:
Since beginning Trim Healthy Mama, I have discovered a ga-zillion amazing, healthful drinks... and, as I worked toward better health, I realized I had been damaging my body. Continual, low-grade dehydration is hard on our organs - Many of my daily "symptoms" were actually my body's plea for more fluid...
The trouble with chronic dehydration is the body doesn't "feel" thirsty... and one begins to think that peeing 2 times per day is normal... that moodiness, irritability, fatigue, headaches, etc are all "normal"...
SOME SYMPTOMS OF CHRONIC DEHYDRATION:
Proper diet, adequate hydration, appropriate exercise (not extreme exercise) and losing excess weight all come together to heal a damaged body!
For fun... Can you list all the wonderful THM drinks? Even if you are an avid THMer, you have probably missed a few of these gems! For those who are newer, I am providing an incomplete list of Trim Healthy Mama drinks below, just to get you started…
As you scroll through them, you will soon realize that hydration will NEVER be groan-worthy again! *All page numbers reference the "Trim Healthy Mama" book.
Now you need something fun for your favorite drinks!

The picture with the pink frozen drink with the flat plastic white lid, did you drill a hole in the lid?

LOL - This is so easy. It is just the regular Good Girl Moonshine (http://www.trimhealthymama.com/main-home/free-recipes/good-girl-moonshine-recipe/) blended with ice and a few frozen raspberries and strawberries. We then placed in the freezer until it was almost frozen through.

Precision-run households may find my title, "RunAmok Mama" to feel a tad alarming, so I'd like to offer a quick assurance that my life is more an exercise of controlled chaos than sheer pandemonium!
