Wake Up To - Water


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

I have a bottle of water at my bedside. When I wake up, I drink 8 oz. This gets my hydration started for the day. And somehow, it seems when I do this consistently, I tend to eat less. I don't know why or how; I just know it works!!!

    That's a great idea. I also drink water in the morning because it is good to thin your blood.

    i also have my water bottle on my night stand, but i also freeze mine so it is ready, and i understood ice water burns more calories

    I keep a water bottle with me at all times. I like lemon juice or lime juice in it for a flavor change. Drinking 8-16 oz. of water first thing helps me stay hydrated and also fills my tummy so I don't reach for the first sweet carb of morning.

    I am going to try this. Spounds like a great way to start the day and the days challenges.

    I start my morning with 16 ozs every day.
