Blah, is what I think about when I hear you need to drink your water. I personally can’t stand regular water, it’s just horrible icky yuck yuck yuck. But as a Mamavation Mom and as a person that is trying to lose weight and be healthy I have to drink Lots and Lots and Lots of water. My personal requirement is 100oz per day. Every person is different but my body does great on 100oz per day. I was not looking forward to that part of my day. But Im learning new ways to flavor my water so I figured I’d share some ways with my lovely readers 🙂
- Well of course you have the different flavor packets like Crystal light and my personal favorite http://www.truelemon.com I just recently tried this kind and Im totally hooked now if I could talk my hubby into getting me a machine to make the crushed ice I’d be in HEAVEN. But even unrelated to water you can use the packets to wake up food and oh my goodness its delish!!!! But back to the water… You can mix and match the packets to make different flavors which is awesome. Lucky for you guys my awesome friend Shelly (@Momma_Oz on twitter) is hosting a give a way on her blog and you can enter it for a True Gift Set http://slightly-off-kilter.com/2011/09/true-lemon-review-giveaway/ I love it and started carrying with me because the thought of all those lemons sitting in a bowl and you reaching in to get them to put them in your drink EWWWWW….
- Fruits~ You can freeze fruit and drop it in your water, or fresh crushed fruit to flavor it, Im not the biggest fan of this method but it works, I just don’t think it adds enough flavor.
- Veggies I know some crazy people put cucumbers in their water I think cukes are only good once they have been turned into pickles buy you know that is just me 🙂
I have had a good week. We started another 2 week challenge which will end as Campaign 10 kicks off. I am very excited to see who the finalists are tonight 🙂 I think the next 7 weeks will be awesome. I will hit my 50lb mark!!!!! Which is freakin’ AWESOME. Well I guess that is about it 🙂
This means I have it 40lbs LOST
