I've written about water twice before and I'm going to make an idle promise that this will be the last time. Oh, I can hear you telling DH or your Smartphone that I'm all wet. But SparkCoach made me do it.
I'm supposed to carry a filled water bottle around with me everywhere I go today. They don't say I have to use it, just carry it around. Then come here to report. So I'm here to report that just carrying it around makes me tired. That only motivated a nap.
I already have a wonderful motivator in place, besides my change in views about water. I was sparked to make a pitcher of water with citrus slices floating in it every morning. My chiropractor's office has a dispenser of water with floating citrus slices. That dispenser calls to me, to "Come to the Water." I even started humming that tune when I saw it. So now my refrigerator calls to me. Instead of getting up to find a little something to snack on in the kitchen, I get up, jump on the trampoline a little, and refuel my tanks. Just the sight of that bright pitcher makes me smile. Replenishes my water, my happiness, and my fortitude to stay the course, to skip that snack. I think I'm gradually replacing the constant snacking habit with the drinking water habit.
Good trade off, don't you think? And here in Florida, oranges and limes are a dime a dozen. No, that was a different decade. Let's not go there!!
And if you want to leave a pitcher of water with citrus slices out during a gathering, freeze the slices in some water in those cupcake pans you don't need anymore. Add the frozen hockey pucks to the pitcher as the party starts. Very pretty!!
If you are interested in finding out just how "all wet" I am, here's a link to my updated Feb. 2013 blog about water. I promise you won't drown.
