Beauties, the way you start off your day really matters. I know for a fact if I wake up late and don’t get a workout in before my day starts, I tend to feel sluggish, lazy and most of all, tend to reach for food choices that aren't the greatest for me, which inevitably ruins my day. I am the type of person who has to start my day with a little me time in the mornings, so I typically will get up around 5am, and will either head to spin or a barre class, if I don't, my day is a bit on the messy side. But before I do anything in the morning, one of my staples is drinking warm lemon water. I don’t drink tons of caffeine, luckily for me that has never been my thing, so my beverages of choice are water, hot tea (really any kind), warm lemon H20, and one that I can’t forget and helps keep me sane…bubbly!
As you get to know me, you will find that I am a bit obsessed with lemons. I throw them in pretty much all my beverages ( I would like to have a vodka, water with 2 lemons please!) I use them for odds and ends around my home, and to keep my skin in check, when it acts a fool! So sorry, not sorry if you find me squeezing in lots of lemon posts, but it's crazy how this little piece of fruit can not only keep your digestion system in check, but can also keep you skin and house in glowing condition! ( more on that later)
So back to the, lemons keep your digestion system in check, thing. It's true, consuming warm lemon water first thing in the morning, is one of, if not the most, important thing you can do for yourself to get your day started off right. Who doesn't want to set themselves up for a happier, healthier day?
Before I do anything in the morning, I down a mug of warm lemon water to get my body moving. Not only is it a refreshing way to awaken your body, but drinking lemon water has major health benefits! Let's check them out:
