The answer is...

Sunday, June 24, 2012

I had a spa day recently with treatments which I enjoyed. During a facial and massage. I said I had a dry skin? The answer was "Drink more water."
At a manicure I asked about my brittle nails, the answer was "drink more water!".
I had make up done, where I mentioned bags under my eyes .Yes you guessed it.
"Drink more water."
I thought I do drink a lot of water.
But I hadn't actually measured what I consumed.
I am doing so now. I use a pretty tall poppy decorated glass just for water. It stands out from other plain glasses so its my reminder. See the Poppy glass, use it to drink water.
Its a magic remedy! emoticon

    This is an excellent suggestion! I have an old 32-ounce plastic drink container, with a lid and large flexible straw, that I ALWAYS keep filled with plain water (usually straight from the tap). No matter what I may be drinking, the water stays next to it. My personal rule is, I have to finish and refill the water container every time I pour myself something else to drink.

    BTW, how many glasses ARE you drinking now?!

    P.S. How old, you may wonder, IS my water "bottle"? The small print on the side, which says you can refill the container for 59 cents at the "Der Wienerschnitzel," also says that special price expires April 30, 1991!

    So true, everything is better with water. I find I drink more water if it is not chilled or iced. So, I place a pitcher with my eight - eight ounce glasses right there on the kitchen front of me to see. I aim for it to be gone by evening. This works for me, a homemaker who is in and out of the kitchen all day. Enjoyed reading your blog, emoticon

    Great idea! I've never had a problem with drinking water! I have a cup going all day long. I never measure but water is my drink of choice and when one cup is empty, I fill it again! Lovely to have a spa day!
