How To Drink More Water

I’ve never been much of a water drinker, in fact growing up i never really even drank water. I know that’s totally bad!!

Anyways, lately i have really been trying hard to get enough water. Like at least 64 fl oz. of water each day. And I’ve come up with a few different ways that help me reach that goal.

drink more water

Here are the things i do, to help me drink more water each day…

  • I drink 2 bottles of water (or 32 fl oz.) before 10 AM. If i’m able to do that, the rest of the day i find it’s easier to drink the remaining amount needed.
  • The water has to be at the perfect temperature. If it’s too warm, i can’t drink it. Same as if it’s too cold, i can’t drink it. The temperature has to be just right.
  • I add lemon. On the days i’m just struggling to get it down, i add some lemon to help.
  • I drink from a straw. Somehow drinking from a straw makes me drink more and faster.
  • I keep track. I use my Fitbit app (which has my goal of how much water to drink each day) and i log how much water i drink each day. Seeing that really helps motivate me to reach those goals.

If you are struggling to drink enough water each day, i hope my tips have been encouraging for you.

Bikini Body Mommy (Intro/Progress)

Hi Guys!

I’ve decided i’m going to try to post fitness/wellness stuff on Fridays.

I started doing Bikini Body Mommy back in October/November 2017 and had great success with it, however the holidays hit and i stopped doing it.

Now i’m back at it.

So what exactly is Bikini Body Mommy?

bikinibodymommy-400x400-300x300

It’s free YouTube workout videos, however she also has a website with more stuff to offer like; meal plans, cookbooks, etc.

I’ve just been using the free YouTube videos. I’m doing challenge 1.0

I’m on day 25 of a 90 day challenge.

What i love about these workouts is that most of them are under 20 minutes. Which makes it so easy to fit into my day. I also love that they don’t require any extra equipment, just some weights.

If you haven’t heard of it before, and are looking for something to do from the comfort of your house i would definitely give Bikini Body Mommy a try. But be prepared to be incredibly sore for the first 2 weeks.

Peanut Butter Granola  Every time i make this i have to make 2 batches because my kids just gobble it up! The love to eat it like a cereal, with some almond milk.

Vanilla Chai Vegan Banana Pancakes Easy & yummy! The kids love it!

Black Bean Burgers – This is a great recipe if you are vegetarian or vegan! So yummy too! I’ll be honest though, this recipe wasn’t a big hit with my kids. Most of my kids prefer regular ground beef burgers. I however, love these burgers!!

Chipotle Chicken Quinoa Burrito Bowl My family isn’t big on eating quinoa, so we substitute with rice. It’s so good.

7a921ed69cfed2243a80263d8746870a

Chocolate Peanut Butter “Ice Cream” I make this almost every morning for my breakfast. I just use frozen bananas, unsweetened almond milk, and natural peanut butter. Sometimes i’ll add in a scoop of cocoa powder. It really feels like you are eating ice cream (or in my case a milkshake because of the almond milk), but without the guilt.

Turkey Taco Burrito Bowls  My kids love turkey taco’s, even more than original taco’s with ground beef.

Sticky Sesame Cauliflower I tried this out last month, i was surprised at how good it tasted.

That’s also the end of my weight loss series, i really hope you enjoyed it as much as i did. I don’t know about you, but just looking at all these recipes has made me hungry.
