Don't forget as you train in the heat, dehydration stresses the body. Body temperatures rise, heart rate increases, more glycogen is burned, the brain struggles to concentrate and exercise is more difficult. Make sure to become familiar with your sweat rate to know how much hydrating you need. Weigh yourself before and after a workout. If you lost 2 pounds, you need to hydrate 80-100% of that amount so you need 26-32 ounces of water replaced in your body.

2 Corinthians 1:8-10
Purposes for our Lives:1. God wants you to know and love Him. (Worship)
2. Learn to love others. (Fellowship)3. To become like Jesus. (Grow Up Spiritually)4. Practice serving other people. (Ministry)5. You were made with a mission.
God uses pain to develop those purposes in your life!
2 Corinthians 1:8-10
Now I am glad I sent it, not because it hurt you but because the pain turned you to God. It was a good kind of sorrow you felt, the kind of sorrow God wants his people to have, so that I need not come to you with harshness."
2. I can use my pain to draw closer to others.
Share each other’s troubles and problems, and so obey our Lord’s command."
3. I can use my pain to become more like Jesus.
*To become more like Jesus, I need to practice using the fruit of the spirit.

Nutrition Trainer Tip:
Consume 2 calories of carbohydrates per pound of body weight within 5-60 minutes before exercising.
Morning exercisers have a low blood sugar limiting him/her in length and sometimes intensity of workouts. A snack or healthy breakfast can boost the blood sugar offering fuel for the workout.
Tolerances of amount and type of snack varies among athletes. Experimenting with pre-exercise snacks is important to find the best fuel for your workout.
Some suggested pre-exercising fuel by registered dietitian Nancy Clark are as follows:
2. Bagel and 8oz. Of orange juice
3. Trail mix made with dry fruit and cereal
4. Energy bar and 16oz sports drink
(Four separate snacks or meals- not to be considered to consume all snacks in one meal)

“Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.”
Romans 12:1-2 NIV
It is God's will for us to be healthy and fit because our body is His temple and was purchased at the price of His son (1 Cor. 6:19-20).
