Summertime, summertime, sum… sum… summertime!
Time to drink up! It’s hot out, its miserable out, and you want to cool down, right? Well, drink up!
Grab that bottle, grab a nice, iced glass, and pour yourself a…….. glass of water!
Ok, ok, I know what you thought I was going to say, and some of that is ok, but when we’re talkin’ summertime it’s even more important to drink water.
If you’re like me, you don’t drink enough water EVER. I sure don’t. But, here are a couple of tips.
Drink through a straw. No kidding. I tried it and it works. You drink more through a straw. Remember bendy-straws? Kinda fun and come in all sorts of colors. All sorts of crazy straws out there. Get some cool ones and give yourself a giggle.
Also, I cannot stand plain water, even filtered. I HAVE to flavor it. There’s SO many kinds of flavorings, just stay away from the one’s full of junk, and sugar. (Look at the ingredient list). I like “Ocean Spray Cran-Lemonade,” but my FAVE is “True Lemon.” It’s made from lemon, and a couple of little packs of that and a bit of sweetener in a bottle of water…. and I’ll actually drink water!
(“True Lemon” can be tough to locate in the store. Sometimes it’s near the other water flavorings, sometimes it’s in the baking section. Weird. Bright yellow box and it also comes in orange.)
If you’re wondering, no, I still don’t drink 8 glasses of water a day. But, I do drink more than I used to!
Oh, and whatever you were thinking when I said, “Drink Up! Time to drink up!” Everything in moderation! :)
