how to drink ya water! 💦

okay so I know y'all always hear everybody talking about “DRINK WATER!” but not everybody really likes water, in fact, I actually hated water when I first started to make an effort to drink more. Soooo, I decided to give y'all some ways to spice up your water to make sure you get at least 64 oz. a day. Some can add benefits to your water and some are just for taste and some for both. 👌🏾

1. Fruit Infused 🍉🍒🍋
fruit infused water can have a lot of benefits depending on what fruit you use but usually my main reason to drink fruit water is because of taste. A few fruits I like are:
- lemon
- watermelon
- raspberry
- cucumber
- coconut

2. Stay Fresh 🌿🍃
add fresh herbs:
- basil
- lavender
- mint
- rosemary

3. Make Tea 🍵☕️
making tea is my favorite way to jazz up my water. try to stay away from teas with a lot of caffeine like black or oolong. instead go for green, white, or herbal teas. also try to keep it unsweetened but if that’s not possible use a natural sweetener like honey, stevia, or agave nectar (I suggest honey). A few teas I like are:
- Rituals Orange Jasmine Green Tea
- Bigelow Green Tea
- Celestial Sleepytime Vanilla Herbal Tea
- almost any herbal tea

4. Make it HOT! 🔥🌶
try adding a spice to you water. I like cinnamon water or cinnamon tea. Some benefits you receive from it are reducing your waste line and reducing cravings. other spices you could probably use are:
- ginger
- turmeric
- cayenne

5. Get Juicy 💦😏
(I really wanted to write that 😂) try adding some type of juice likeee:
- lemon juice
- cranberry juice
- apple cider vinegar

6. Honey Water 🍯🐝
okay so this is best just with warm water in the morning but personally I’ve had it just like throughout the day but I don’t know if that hurts anything. It’s great for a sore throat!

7. Rose Water 🌹❣
so this one is basically just if you’re feeling fancy. I actually haven’t tried this before but I’m sure it’s great!

Sleepytime Tea Tuesday

Fact: I yawned three times while trying to take this photo. And I am actually drinking Vanilla Sleepytime Tea because it’s delicious.

Tuesday things:

  • I got my very first ever deep tissue massage last night and holy hell. I mean, I’m not sure I would even say it was all good pain. Definitely not relaxing. My neck is sort of sore. But I think it helped? The masseuse told me she was surprised by how many knots I had in my shoulders. Me too? I thought I was all leg problems.
  • I took an impromptu rest morning. I stayed up too late last night and so five hours later, my body didn’t want to go to the pool. Since I’ve worked out every day for a few weeks, I let myself sleep in. And then it snowed anyways so I pretended that was my excuse. I DID get on my bike trainer for a bout 25 minutes though because I have a serious cardio problem. 

  • People are surprisingly okay with me not drinking. I’ve only gotten a few pregnancy jokes!

  • Living alone is the best. I never want to talk to anyone again.Well, that’s not true. But I took off this weekend from the ski store so I could bask in the silence for as long as possible. 
  • Friends are bailing on my ski trip but at this point, I don’t care. I might still go by myself. See above, re: silence. 
How goes it for you, tumblr?
