Five Things Friday

If you follow me on Twitter, you’ll know that I am weaning myself off sugar-y beverages and drink more water. You’ll also know that drinking 96 ounces of fluids (16 tea, 80 water) meant that I had to pee a whole lot that day.

Despite that very specific drawback, I’ve been enjoying keeping much better hydrated. Some of my favourite perks

  1. I walk more. Not just to the bathroom. I also walk more to fill up my cup, so between the two, I’m not sitting stuck in my chair at my desk for as long.
  2. My skin is cracking less in this cold weather. It’s still cracking, and I know I need to be better at moisturizing, but improvement is good!
  3. I’ve developed a love for warm water. Yes, the same beverage I mocked my mother-in-law for just a couple short weeks ago. But in winter? You can’t chug the ice cold stuff.
  4. I have no problem getting up in the morning, mostly because my bladder and my alarm clock are in cahoots.
  5. I don’t miss sugary beverages nearly as much as I did at the beginning of the week

  1. I’m really trying hard to follow in your footsteps. I need to drink more water too. I still don’t know if I can do the warm water though. I know it’s cold but I just need it to be cold!

  2. I definitely find that I drink less water in the winter, probably because I always drink it ice cold. I’ve never tried to drink it warm, but maybe in a mug with lemon–I could trick myself into thinking it’s something fun. Maybe?

  3. What’s your twitter handle?! I want to be sure I’m following you (side note: please add that everywhere on your blog, along with all of your social profiles. Would ❤ to connect!).

    Thanks for the reminder to chug more water! I dunno what I'd do without my coffee in the morning, but drinking water throughout the day is so important–and probably why your skin is improving!

    Hope you're having a great week, my sweet! XO

    • How did I miss this? Twitter is @caredge (which is also instagram!) I have a weird relationship with social media that’s evolved since the day I stripped all of it from my blog so thanks for the reminder to add it back in!
