The SALT Life
Sunday, July 10, 2016
I have had a BAD week with sodium intake. I've been over more often than not and now I have the dreaded "salt bloat".
I "KNOW" I haven't gained 5 pounds this week. I just haven't been able to break the water retention -- YET. I will. It's just a matter of keeping the sodium intake at a lower level and drinking more water to hydrate, purify, and flush my system.
This terrible heat (100+ days)
and humidity leads to cravings for salty things. I had forgotten that because the last two summers in Savannah had been much milder. I remember now!
I urge all of you to closely monitor your sodium / salt intake. PLEASE, stay hydrated in this heat. Be careful -- I don't want to lose you, Spark Friends!
Wear a light-colored, wide-brimmed hat, keep moistened cloth with you outside, drink lots of water
. Stay out of the mid-day sun!
