I am a new family member of Fulcrum Fitness Fitcamp. My name is Pamela Orser and I am really excited to begin Fitcamp in Sellwood Park. This park has just been added to the list and it’s in my neighborhood!

I made a New Year’s resolution about 6 years ago regarding water consumption. It frankly is one of the only resolutions I have kept and one of the very few I’ve ever made. I found this one remarkably easy. I play little games to remember to drink water. I have to because coffee, tea, and even beer sound so much better. I’ve been told, and believe, that the body’s reaction to dehydration often is the feeling of hunger or the feeling of fatigue, masking the real problem… the body is thirsty!
So, one thing I do is to have a strict rule of no food or beverage before a pint of water in the morning. So easy because you know I want that cup of coffee pronto. I use a pint glass, like the ones beer come in, and slug it down. I’m already half way to my liter before lunch rule! I have other tricks but would love to hear from anyone who has ideas about getting the life liquid into our bodies.
