) What are you drinking right now? Coffee, lifegiving coffee!

2) What do you drink first thing in the morning? Actually, a glass of water. A friend explained to me that coffee on an empty bladder can cause spasms that mimic the pain from a bladder infection. Something that I have constantly had problems with over the years. I started having a glass of water first and the problem has stopped, apparently she was right. So, a glass of water then two cups of coffee.

3) What do you drink before a work out? water

4) What about during? water (though not as much while working out, only about 8 oz per hour)

5) What about after? Big thing of water:)

6) Do you drink any special sports drinks? Not an actually sports drink but following lifting I usually have a protein shake (a scoop mixed with water) to fuel the repair process.

7) What do you drink regularly, other than water? Just coffee. I gave up soda, except when we go to the movies. I only have the occassional beer so it can't be called regular and I haven't made any iced-tea because of the sugar...

I don't make it often, but I make it with flavored tea bags like mango or peach. It gives the tea a little flavor w/out adding sugar.

1) What are you drinking right now? Nothing at the moment but I will have some Raspberry Lemonade Crystal Light mmmm!

2) What do you drink first thing in the morning? 4 oz OJ, then 2 cups coffee (the blood of life)

3) What do you drink before a work out? 1/2 a thermospeed 525 if I'm sluggish

4) What about during? remainder of thermospeed, crystal light, or water

5) What about after? water or crystal light. I like protein shakes on occasion but the bubbles from mixing them (shaken or blended) give me, well, gas, which doesn't feel too hot.

6) Do you drink any special sports drinks? Just the thermospeed but that is a rarity

7) What do you drink regularly, other than water? Crystal light, coffee, and maybe once a month a glass of chilled fume blanc or an espresso martini mmmmmmmm!!!

speaking of drinks, does anyone know of a sports drink that has electrolytes like gatorade but no sugar/sweetners? i would think they could make water supplemented with electrolytes that still tasted like water...that's what i'd really like to get. with all the sweating and water drinking i do in the summer, i feel like i need a sports drink but i don't want the sugar.

Thermospeed is a sugar-free, calorie-free drink that has electrolytes, caffeine, and a small shot of ma huang. I don't drink it too often but once in a while I will feel particularly sluggish, and this gives me a little kick to get started. Usually I don't finish the whole bottle; I'll give the rest to my bf. It is a popular drink at my gym, and it's not half bad, tastewise.
