I put lemon in my hot water, too. You can also keep a jug of room temperature distilled water and sip on that. I also add unsweetened cranberry juice (just enough to give flavor and color) and enough stevia to take off the bite. When I do that I have not problems drinking plenty of water. I just went and bought several packages of cranberries on sale. I've frozen all but one, and I'm going to boil them to make cranberry juice to add to my water. That way I know they are sugar-free and perservative free! It tastes better, too. :o)
April's fitness goal--600 minutes on my exercise bike.
"Search me, O God, and know my heart: test my thoughts. Point out anything you find in me that makes you sad, and lead me along the path of everlasting life." Psalm 139:23-24 TLB
"Does he not see my ways and count my every step?" Job 31:4 (NIV)
My Mom did that. She would also squeeze a bit of lemon in hers which really cleanses you and gives you a shot of vitamin C that is so needed when your body is getting stressed from the cold. I did really well so far with this challenge over Thanksgiving in spite of traveling by car 13 hours each way! Had to really time those bathroom breaks though....
"All who call upon me I will answer, I will be with them in distress; I will deliver them and give them honor." Psalm 91:15
I'm in! It is hard to drink water when it's so cold... You might try hot water. I was visiting with my sister recently and she filled a mug with steaming hot water... I thought perhaps she was going to make tea but she drank several cups of hot water a day. I asked her about it and she told me that she noticed how much coffee she'd been drinking and realized it wasn't the coffee she wanted but just a warm beverage so she switched to hot water. It really is easier to drink hot water on a cold morning than cold.
