Dehydration in North Texas is a real threat

Dehydration in North Texas is a real threat.


Dehydration while working in the heat can be dangerous.  If you are not accustomed to working outdoors, you may be in for a shock: a big shock to your system.


It is mid-June and summer has come to Dallas, Texas.  The heat has hit with a vengeance.  Spring was nice, but now that’s over and it’s really hot outdoors.  Especially with the rain we had two days before, the air was quite steamy.  There was some clean up in the back yard I wanted to get done.  Much of the shrubbery had grown beyond its borders and needed to be trimmed and the debris underneath had to be thrown away.


I got started in the heat of the day: about 1:45 p.m.  All was going well.  I was seeing some great progress. And did I mention it was hot?  I went into the garage and got a cold bottle of water out of the small refrigerator and gulped it down.


A short time later, I needed more water.  I got another bottle and began to drink it.  I was feeling slightly wiped out and felt I needed to sit for a minute.  Then I remembered that I had some Shaklee Performance Maximum Endurance Sports Drink in the house.  I went inside and mixed a large water bottle of the stuff and drank about a third of it immediately.  I put the rest in the garage refrigerator.  I thought I’d sit down for a few minutes.  I did sit, but only for a short time.  I quickly realized I was feeling better and the fatigue was gone.  It was much better than when I drank the water.  I got up and finished the work I was doing on the yard.  I drank the rest of the Performance Recovery drink as I worked.


The upshot of all this seems to be that the Shaklee Performance Drink made a big difference for me.  I know there are other hydration drinks on the market, but my knowledge and experience with Performance keeps me using this one particular brand.  Other drinks are mostly sugar and are not well researched.  They are mostly marketing ploys, spending big bucks to hire sports celebrities to make expensive television commercials.


Shaklee Performance is a well-researched product that has proven itself time after times.  They have many amateur athletes who use Performance because of its results.  These athletes are not paid by Shaklee to use its products. Check out how many Olympic gold medals have been won by Shaklee users.


Dehydration while working in the heat can be dangerous.  My whole-hearted recommendation is to use Shaklee Performance Sports drink before you begin to do your yard work and through out the process.  It’s not only for athletes; it’s for anyone who is doing more physical activity than usual.  Keep your fluids flowing, and keep the right fluids in your body.
