That was a great article. Thanks for sharing that. I'm going to share that with my husband, as he is NOT good at drinking water. He drinks a lot of coffee and soda. Sometimes iced tea. But since he's finally getting on board with trying to be healthier, I think he'll be open to trying to drink more water too.Topic Tuesday
How are you going with water consumption? Is it something you like the taste of or do you find yourself needing to add a flavour in some way? If you need to improve what are some strategies you could try this week? If you have successfully changed up your water habits, what differences did it make?
Bonus Question: When at Disney how do you hydrate? Do you notice differences there than at home in your habits?
I do pretty good with my water consumption when I'm at work. I have refillable water bottle that holds about 2 cups and I try to finish drinking it by each break. So I drink one bottle before school starts, one before my prep time, one before lunch/recess, one before the short afternoon recess, and then finish another before I leave for the day. Then I always drink water with dinner unless we go out to eat (maybe twice a week). So most days I have no problem making my 80 oz or more. On the weekends, I have to be a little more conscientious about it. I try to bring along a bigger refillable sports bottle of water with me if we are out shopping or going to one of the kids sporting events. Again, it's all about creating those habits.
As for taste, I've gotten pretty used to just plain water. I used to drink diet Coke all the time. When I first cut that out, I would use the flavor drops in the water whenever I was really craving a soda. Now I don't use them nearly as much. Maybe 2-3 times a week...sort of as a treat.
In Disney, I don't mind the taste of the water as I've heard some do. My husband doesn't like it. But I will stop at quick service restaurants and get a free cup of ice water often...more often if we are there in the summer. But I also usually drink more soda there than I do at home. So I know I'm not as good in Disney as I am at home.
