Water is underrated...

On June 23, 2013 I decided that I was only going to drink water.

For the first week, it was like freaking TORCHER! I CRAVED pop, juice and coffee! At restaurants it felt impossible at times to order water when there were perfectly made daiquiris to be had....but I stuck with it!

After a week of drinking only water, I realized how addicted I had been to sugar-loaded drinks.
By week two, I was still craving sugary beverages, but started to notice that my face looked thinner and my skin looked better, and other people were noticing too!
By week three the mega-cravings stopped and drinking water became easier.

& 8 weeks later!!!! I am still going strong! I have days where I would love a glass of wine or a cup of pop/juice, but I remind myself that these beverages have hundreds of unnecessary calories!

What was a 6 wk. challenge, is now a 1 year challenge to go without drinks other than water!

May the force be with me ;) 

My 6 favorite benefits of drinking water!

  1. Weight-loss/helps digestion
  2. Healthier skin
  3. Improves brain function
  4. Fuels muscles
  5. Fights sickness
  6. Improves mood



Can you give up sugary drinks for water?

  1. Sounds odd, but water is actually my favourite drink. I love an ice cold glass of water.
