Water Water Everywhere...

Saturday, January 26, 2013

My opinion of water: wet, tasteless, makes things "watered down" and boring.

Yes, I know it's good for you.

It's good for washing, keeping your body hydrated, boiling or steaming food, and for making some instant food, and so on...

CAPECODBABE's recent blog inspired me to drink more water.

I don't like drinking plain water unless I'm really warm, which I'm not right now. But I know it's good for me, and my long term goal is to adopt more healthy habits, replacing the poor ones. And like other changes, I want to ease into this. Maybe I'll start using less and less flavoring in my water. But being cold is tough, and I really don't like herbals teas at all.

Anyone have some tips for getting more water in?

    If it's really hard to get water down how about a nice cup of hot water with lemon and a bit of honey. It is good and relaxing. ...think I'll make a cup now!

    Quick story... My husband and I took a trip, woke in the morning - kidney infection. Not good when you only have one. We literally filled the hotel room ice bucket and I chugged and chugged. Filled it again chugged and chugged and one more time. Peeing every few minutes, but by morning I was good enough that the pain had lesson, no emergency trips for me, didn't have to come home and I was doing okay. That's how important that stuff is!

    Also it's great for your skin. Ever see someone in the dessert? LOL!!

    Good luck! emoticon

    Funny! I just blogged re: water today ............. here is a mind tripper .......... Visualize 'someone' taking your water bottle AWAY from you and refuses to give it back!! (We generally fight for our possessions, right?) ............. I mean, HOW DARE THEY!!!%$! ........
    So ........... first I invite you to come read my blog ............(not trying to solicit fan mail, really) ..........
    AND IF you have on occasion seen those documentaries of the terribly DEPRAVED peoples on our very earth ....... struggling to stay alive, sending mere children miles on foot to fetch some rancid water .............. It will give new meaning to all we have been blessed with ........... It is above and beyond .......... (whenever I manage to watch any, I end up crying, and vowing to more grateful for my daily bread and drink ........
    LAST ........... Not preaching, just saying .............. I happen to have a really nice thermos (was fairly spendy and so worth it) That I lug around like Linus did his blankie .......... I have it chuck full of ice and ice water which tastes so delicious when I drink it .............. Ok--all for now ..... emoticon
