Refreshing !

I’ve been trying to keep moving, exercising and being active. I’ve been running for the most part because honestly, I love the feeling I get after a run. So I’ve also been trying to be a tad smart about making the runs effective as well. I read somewhere online that after a run, you should refill with something that will give you energy. A suggestion for those who don’t feel like eating after they’ve been out running was drinking a sports drink, or better yet – making your own.


4tbs sugar

1/4 tsp salt

1/4 cup boiling water

2tbs (or 1/4 cup as I used) lemon juice

3 + 3/4 cup ice cold water


Yes, I know this is basically a lemonade. But in this case I am calling it my very own Gatorade – delicious! This is really a refreshing drink after a run, or any activity probably! Enjoy!!
