August is one of the hottest months of the year where I live. One of the best ways to beat the heat is to stay hydrated. How do I do that? That is a great question!

By the time you finish reading this newsletter, both you and I will be better informed on how we can keep ourselves hydrated and our bodies healthy during this gigantic heat wave!

In fact, the temperatures in my area right now are topping 100 with heat indexes of up to 115 degrees! If we don't properly hydrate our bodies, we can suffer from headaches, heat exhaustion, and fatigue.

Let's make it a point from here on out to drink more and stay healthy and well.

Water Bottle Carrier

@ Pink Chalk Studio

Packing a water bottle around all day when you are out and about might be cumbersome, but what if you could carry it around in something like this?

I found this classy and useful tutorial when looking for something to share in this section.

I am making three of these this weekend to give as gifts for some ladies I know who are training for marathons.

Ideas From Around the Web
Here are some ideas from around the web to help you find ways to stay hydrated.

Homemade Gatorade

While water is my drink of choice to stay hydrated, some people like to drink Gatorade or power drinks for a variety.

In reality though, unless you use coupons for those type of drink items, they can get pretty expensive and can eat a hole through the grocery budget.

Here is a recipe I found to create your own version of Gatorade at home. I personally have not made this yet, but the reviews I have read from numerous blogs have been nothing but positive.


  • 1 package unsweetened Kool Aid (any flavor)
  • 2 quarts water
  • 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup orange juice

Mix together, this equals the electrolyte replacement found in many popular drinks on the market. Great for hot summer.
