How Do You Stay Hydrated? #Switch2BODYARMOR

The seasons are changing and it is like the world is coming out of hybernation… At least our little corner of it.  We are no longer taking care of our horses and riding as little as we can just to keep them active.  Now we are back to looking forward to getting on our horses as much as possible.  We also spend more and more time at the barn – the longer the days are the more we take advantage of those days.  The horses get brushed alot more, there are more trail rides and just so much fun all around.  But with that fun comes the need to stay hydrated while we are so active.



I have been a fan of BODYARMOR drinks for quite a while now but they recently came out with BODYARMOR LYTE!  Now I can be hydrated without all those extra calories – this is awesome since I do still need to lose more weight and I can’t stand drinking my calories.



What’s so great about BODYARMOR LYTE?

It is a naturally flavored, naturally sweetened, no artificial colors, and low-calorie sports drink.  It combines electrolytes, coconut water and vitamins  while also being low in sodium and high in potassium allowing for super hydration.   Each serving only has 20 calories – perfect for after a quick run, gym class or nice long trail ride (or even during the nice long trail ride)…



Great things happening with BODYARMOR

In 2013, Kobe Bryant joined the BODYARMOR team as the number three shareholder in the company. In 2017, BODYARMOR launched two new products: BODYARMOR LYTE and BODYARMOR Water.  BODYARMOR LYTE has all the same nutrients as BODYARMOR while being naturally sweetened and having only 20 calories per serving.  BODYARMOR water is a premium sport water designed by athletes, for athletes.  BODYARMOR is the brand of choice for athletes and has assembled an impressive team of young, superstar athletes such as James Harden, Mike Trout, Dustin Johnson, Andrew Luck, Richard Sherman, Dez Bryant, Anthony Rizzo, Buster Posey, Skylar Diggins and several others.



Now we can always keep BODYARMOR LYTE with us every day at the barn!  A much more healthy option than other beverages that the family will sometimes choose.  Simply stock up and take our show on the road.  As an adult I need to stay hydrated at all times.  I work hard all day then hard all night at the barn with our horses.  Sometimes I forget to drink enough throughout the day and by the time I get to the barn – I really start to feel the effects of that lack of hydration.  BODYARMOR LYTE picks up the pieces of my neglect quite well.  I drink one bottle and I feel like I am hydrated and back to taking on any challenge the horses throw at me.



Flavors include Cherry Berry and Peach Mango.  Two awesome flavors that I absolutely love!  If I had to rely on plain water I would never be properly hydrated.  I don’t mind water throughout the day – I just don’t like only water.  And when I am working very hard at the barn I really feel like I need more than water and BODYARMOR LYTE is just the ticket to quench my thirst.



As you can see our horses are huge, personable and require tons of attention and love.  Spending pretty much every available daylight hour taking care of them and helping with the herd definitely increase our thirst and we need to stay properly hydrated.



Owning horses is not just about the fun and play.  We totally work up a sweat – even when it is zero degrees outside – lots of sweat.  There are stalls to clean, grain to haul, bedding to spread, water troughs to fill, hay to move, horses to brush, mane and tails and detangle, teeth to clean, hoofs to get the mud out of etc… But then there are horses to tack up (saddles are heavy), tack to put away and so much more.  AND THEN we get to have fun…  Even the horses have fun – check out my lovely Toni smiling for the camera…



What do I keep in my bag for days at the barn that are filled with exercise?


Protein bars

Cheese sticks

Golden tomatoes

Mini cucumbers

Hummus and pretzels thins


Than I am good to just keep spending time with friends and horses…
