Happy First Day of Spring! If you live east of the Mississippi, you’re likely enjoying warm weather and blue skies today. For our friends west of Kansas, don’t worry, warmer days lay ahead. No matter where you live in the United States though, you’re probably thinking about the honorary fifth season - swimsuit season.

For many of us, a cozy fireplace, comfortable sofa and warm blanket were more appealing this winter than trekking to the gym for spin classes or a jog on the treadmill.  But not to fear!  If you’re trying to manage the calories you’re taking in, our member companies make a variety of low- and no-calorie beverages.  After all, balancing the calories from what you eat and drink with those you burn while working to reach your fitness goals is the key to maintaining a healthy weight. You can check out DeliveringChoices.org to see many of the myriad beverage options available in today’s marketplace.

And if you’re not quite ready to hit the beach, California’s Sierra Nevada was buried with snow last week.  Snowboarding and skiing burn plenty of calories, as you can see in this funny video.

So wherever you’re stuck, sun or snow (we hope sun!) -- be sure to hydrate with a refreshing beverage.
