So...I'm like an eternal dieter. Seriously.
I'm constantly worrying about fat, calories, sugar, carbs, or something. And I love fad diets. I'll be the first one to admit this horribly unhealthy truth about myself--a new pill? Sign me up. Nothing but cabbage soup for a week? I'm on board. Counting points? Counting carbs? Nothing but grapefruit? Cookies? Lemonade? Shakes in a can? Yes, yes, and yes. I'll try it. Anything to try something different.
One thing that has never changed is that I don't drink my calories.
And that's why one of my favorite drinks is a combination of cranberry apple Crystal Light and a 2 liter of diet lemon-lime soda in a large fancy glass punch bowl, served with a few lemon slices and sipped through a straw from a pretty glass. This is always great for holiday parties, baby showers, wedding showers, backyard BBQs, whatever. Tart, sweet (without the calories!), bubbly, refreshing, and delicious!
What combinations have you tried?
Yesterday's Day 3 of the challenge was a little bit hard. I was in and out all day, but I took my water with me. Still, by 6:00 at night, I was only half-way through my 8 glasses. Why is it so hard to consume water all day? I felt like I was constantly drinking from my bottles, but I guess I was only sipping all day, and that got me nowhere fast.
And, I hate to say it, but I'm getting a bit tired of water. That's where those 2 replacement Crystal Light glasses count and become quite the life savers.
What about you? Do you get tired of drinking water all day? Are you a sipper or a pounder? I can't really pound down the water unless it's room temperature. I'll be in class, away from home again for 6 hours during the day. I hope to do a bit better than Tuesday, yet I hate to have to leave class due to the Call of Nature.
Wish me luck.
