Your Water Consumption...

Tuesday, April 22, 2014

It is good to drink plenty of water during the day...

A horrible paen to water, sung along to a religious school song commonly sung in USA:

"Water's good for me, I know,
For SparkPeople tells me so...
If we drink it plentif'ly
We'll feel better, yes we will...
Yea water loves me,
yea water loves me,
Yea water loves me,
Yea water loves me,
SparkPeople tells me so!"

Okay, and moving along..... (Yes, i know, I should not quit my day job....)

So while reading the paper this morning, and stalling on going for my walk, I saw this hilarious comic, and I took a snapshot of it:

Enjoy! And pace yourselves!!

Thanks for the comment about not wanting to drink the straight water !! That reminded me, I had meant to share this website info of a product that I really enjoy during the relatively few times when I'm not in the mood for straight water (which, admittedly, I don't mind, and I do switch off with teas etc.)... but I really like this product called TrueCitrus or I think it's also called TrueLemon. They are little packet-tubes and they are sweetened with STEVIA, yayyy! No aspartame, sorbitol, or other artificial sweeteners. I've seen them in at least three different flavors (Raspberry Lemonade, Black Cherry Limemade, and I forget the third. I've seen it at Dillons (a Kroger affiliate so if you are in a Kroger market, you should be able to find it.). It's available online in a variety of shops as well as their own website:

I've just had the little boxes so far, I haven't tried the shaker kinds. I'm thinking I also saw it at Walmart, but don't remember for sure. I need to go to the store anyway and will look again (I gave my mom the ones I had, three boxes/flavors, so she didn't have any excuse to not try it. She keeps buying that "awful to me" Crystal Light with more chemicals than anything actually healthy. Arrrgh.).

So that might give you some ideas. If you are where you can't easily get to the store, this website I just posted has a few offers available, and I think they make other coupon code offers on their Facebook page etc. I've seen it on and they are "more expensive" but are sending you several boxes all at once, so you can try more flavors or not have to get out and travel to a store. I know different readers have different situations, so I'm just trying to let you know that there are many options. They even have sample packs (look on the left hand frame, towards the bottom, and click on "Sample Packs."

But when I am in the mood for a flavored water, these are YUMMY!! (Usually I'm more in the mood for tart, so will spike my water with Natural Apple Cider Vinegar.). My son likes it with Seltzer water or Soda water, because he likes the carbonation. So you could play with that as well (and this product is one reason why I'm liking the idea of buying a SodaStream in the future....).

Okay so I better go get some water now!! all this typing makes me thirsty, haha!!
