After a weekend out of town visiting family, my life is finally settling down again. Between too much birthday cake (I of course had a small slice with each meal Saturday night – Sunday morning) and not a lot of time for exercise, I immediately wanted to get back on a healthy schedule yesterday. But this new pantry find didn’t help.
This popcorn is awesome. It was hiding in my pantry (I think someone gave it to us a few months back), and I found it Sunday night when we got back into town. Must practice moderation when sugar is the first ingredient on the list. 🙂
In my last post, I announced that Nick and I will be taking a vacation in the middle of April. Because I will be on the beach for 4.5 days, I’ve decided to jumpstart some health goals to feel my best. These are health-related tools that I take for granted. I really want to focus on one per week for the next six weeks.
Week One – Water Consumption
I definitely don’t get straight A’s in the water department. I usually get enough fluids during the day, but I don’t drink enough plain water. I love coffee, juice, tea and Diet Dr. Pepper, but in the afternoon especially, I don’t get the water I should. I will be working on upping my water intake this week.
Today, I’m happy to report that I had probably double the amount of water that I usually do. I have a large 32 oz. water bottle with a straw spout that set at my desk all day. The upped water consumption is all in the straw. For some reason, I drink a lot more and a lot faster through a straw. Whatever works!
I was lacking in motivation to cook anything for dinner, so I turned to my inspiration – Google Reader. Heather inspired me to make roasted sweet potatoes with salsafied kidney beans.
My latest dinner drink obsession – 1 Part Black Cherry Goji Juice to 3 Parts Lime Soda Water.
For dessert —
Do you think you drink enough water? Have any tips for me?
