I’m guilty of eating when I’m not hungry. Here’s a secret. I start most of my days with a stop at McDonalds for a large, Diet Coke, light ice. I limit myself to one pop a day. There are so many reasons why soda pop is not the best choice for me, but there are only so many things I want to change about myself at a time.
I have an electronic post-it note on my laptop that says “amihungry?” & one I just added last week that says “howmuch?”. I’ve decided to add another note that says “thirsty?.”
I can also use other visual cues. For example, at lunch time I have a friend that always has a big jug of water with her. That can be my cue to grab a glass from the lounge, & fill it up with some old-fashioned, retro H2O. Can you believe I don’t usually drink anything with my meals?
To give myself credit, I typically keep a water bottle in my car. Some of the time it is filled with water. I will continue with this habit.
How do you remind yourself to drink water?
Any suggestions on how to make water more fun?
My ideas? Add Strawberries, Cucumbers, Lemons, Limes, or Oranges!
