Salty Dog

I'm just here to help you, really...

The new year brings resolutions, new exercise routines, trips to the gym, new food plans.  I know, I do it all too.  I am suffering through loving my new exercise videos ChaLean Extream (I call her mean Chalean), and I am sweating like a dog!  I am also watching what I eat, adding in more veggies, and looking at calorie counts, carbs, and fats (those big girl pants are starting to shrink already!)

And so, I bring you drink of the week.  The Salty Dog.  Now I chose this because of it's heath benefits.  When you exercise, you sweat, when you sweat, you lose salt; therefore the salted rim.  I am trying to add more fruits and veggies, so the grapefruit juice (and we all know grapefruit juice helps you burn fat!).  And the vodka is only about 96 calories and no carbs, see I'm doing you a favor by showing you this.  Also, it is a very easy drink to make because I know you will be tired from all the exercise (and weak from the limited number of calories you are eating).

So here is to a new year and a new you, let's toast with a Salty Dog.
