Drinking water with mint


Saturday, June 29, 2013

Today I drank water with mint leaves. At first I didn't taste anything but within about 4 to 6 hours, I definitely tasted it. We have a small mint garden so I've been plucking leaves and putting them in water. I've also been looking on how to keep my drinks cool in my car while I walk on the trail. It's very hot and I don't have access to a cooler. Today's blog will be short since it's very late in the day. I cleaned up some of my room, which is great because I did cardio afterwards. I then went with Mike to visit his grandmothers until 4pm. For the rest of the day, I updated on my email and pretty much anything that needs to be caught up on.

GOOD THINGS
1. woke up at 7
2. put some aloe lotion on sunburn
3. did 100 crunches (haven't done in awhile so I'm building up)
4. Bought apples
5. read 3 chapters

GOALS
1.lose a few inches off my core
2.do a successful squat
3.finish my homework for the semester
4.clean my room
5.refusing sweets and treats

Also I measured myself today. I'm losing inches but I gained a pound.
I hope you have a wonderful day. Drink lots of water!

    I bought a Polar Bottle Insulated Water bottle. It keeps your water cold and is light weight.

    I am addicted to mint water. Try bruising the leaves before adding them to the water to get more flavor faster. I also have a new water bottle that I am totally in love with, called an AquaZinger. It allows you to put herbs or fruit in a screened chamber in the bottom of the bottle, and has blades to break the stuff up and extract the juice or essence, which flows through the screen and into the water. You get all the the flavor without stuff floating in your water. This is the website: http://www.zinganything.com/.

    I have so much mint, I don't know what to do with it. That is a great idea.
