Works For Me Wednesday-Diet Edition

This week, WFMW has a diet theme. I think I'm supposed to post a healthy recipe, but I'm going to post about water instead. I love having my own blog-I can make up my own rules!

Anyway, we all know that we are supposed to drink water, but I really don't like drinking it. At all. Here are three things that help make it more bearable.
  • 1. I buy the sparkling flavored water, drink one, then fill it up again with water. The flavor is still there for the second and third bottles, which makes 6 of the 8oz much easier to drink!
  • 2. Here's a recipe from a Rachael Ray magazine: To a gallon of water, add slices of orange and a sliced vanilla bean. Refrigerate overnight. In the morning, your water will taste like a creamsicle! You can garnish it with fresh mint if you are feeling fancy!
  • 3. When I am at work (the restaurant), I put a lemon slice on the bottom of my cup and then fill it up with soda water. For some reason, water with lemon is no where near as yummy as soda water with lemon.
By the way, I've moved my photos for the 365 day project to a new blog:

Anyone interested in being on my blogroll, let me know, I'd love to add you!

Drinking lots of water IS important. If find that if I keep a big jug of water by my desk at work, I end up drinking most of it througout the day.

Thanks for sharing your tips!

I think this is the number one tip for dieting as well as remedy for the common cold and other illnesses. Nice post!

Thanks for sharing! I love water, but a friend of mine is always looking for ways to flavor her water. I'll have to make her a jug with Rachel Ray's recipe to give to her as a fun gift.

Water helps with energy, too. I know I need to drink it, so I had to come up with ways to make myself do it! I guess we all know there are things we need to do but just don't do them. Here's one less thing on my list.

I'll be sharing your creamsicle water tip with my Mother In Law. She will LOVE that! Thanks!

Ooh, creamsicle water, yum!

Did you know that unsweetened, herbal tea (any flavor with no caffeine) counts as water, too?

I like peppermint, myself.
