Hello my fabulous friends. It tis I, the weirdo that says stuff like “It tis I.” I promise I haven’t been drinking, just in a super silly mood right now. Must be all this water I’ve been drinking. And speaking of water, isn’t it one of the first things you think of when you hear the word cleanse? So naturally, this is where I started making changes to my diet.
I’ll be 100% honest with you. I’m not a fan of drinking water. I’m a soda lover. Dr. Pepper is like liquid crack to me. But because life is life, the things we love are usually bad for us. Yep, those 12oz cans of awesomeness are bad on the teeth, stomach lining, kidneys, and liver. Which is why I decided to cut back on drinking them and add more water into my life. However, that is so much easier to say than put into action.
So I started by buying bottles of water but quickly stopped because bottled water is expensive. Then I purchased one of those filtered water bottles and this really helped. I’m up to drinking 2 1/2 bottles a day now and only 1 or 2 sodas a day. Wait, you didn’t think I completely gave them up. Sorry but I don’t have that type of will power…yet.
So my challenge and advice to y’all nice folks, is to try to increase your water intake over the next two week. If you’re like me and not willing to pay for water then buy a filtered bottle and make the most out of the tap. If you need a little taste to your water, infuse it with fruits and herbs. I especially like cucumber water with a mint leaf. I promise you will feel better and after a while, it won’t taste as bland.
