Today’s post is short and simple – drink more water. I have been making a conscious effort to drink at least 8 cups a day. A little trick I’ve been doing is using a cup with a straw and refilling it with filtered water:
It all started after a trip to Chipotle when I had one of their paper cups for H2O with a lid and a straw. I used that cup for 3 days – eventually the rim started to get a little creased and then soggy. But it was amazing how easy it was to sip away all day – at my desk, in the car, at the Pilates/spin studio, on a playdate, at a meeting…
So my Lean Fix tip is for everyone to drink more water through a straw – means you are hydrated, your skin is clearer, you’re less likely to get a headache and most importantly you eat less because you are full. The only downside is needing to pee a lot more!
If buying a plastic cup with a straw is all it takes to help you drop a few lbs then what are you waiting for? Oh and do read The Rime of the Ancient Mariner – it’s such a great poem and I for one am thirsty for poetry.
