By now, if you have been rockin’ with me from jump street (or maybe for a while), you know I am all about consuming water and making sure I consume enough of it.
I will say it was tough to get in 8 cups of water at beginning of revamping my lifestyle, but now – completely conquered. It’s definitely second nature and I attribute these factors for helping me reach my 8 cups a day goal:
I don’t buy other beverages. It’s true – when I go to the store, the beverage I purchase is water… and that’s IF I purchase a beverage! I have a filter for my tap at the house, so I really don’t have to “buy water”. Now that doesn’t go to say that I don’t have other beverages in my house, but since I don’t drink pop/soda and I rarely drink juice (unless it’s juiced nowadays) I can get away with just water. This also applies in a restaurant setting – water, please (no lemon).
Eating fruits and veggies. After juicing for a while, I have come to realize there is so much juice in fruits and veggies (not that I didn’t know, but seeing it in a cup – WOW)! Eating these foods (or juicing them) is really helpful in getting my 8 cups in, too!
