Thirsty Thursday

As I walked upstairs this morning I heard a clicking sound. Hmm, was this the elusive Click Beetle? Well, it is getting warmer out…..I stopped to listen where the sound was coming from, then walked up two steps….CLICK! CLICK!…I stopped again, my head turning back and forth listening for the sound. Then another step…CLICK!…it was then that I realized “OH MY GOD THAT’S MY KNEE!!!”

Step one in this situation…do not panic. Easier said then done at 5:30 in the morning.

Clearly I am overweight. Not by much (or so I tell myself), but my knee is definitely telling me something different. Which brings me to step two, get your shizznizzel together!!!

Besides eating right and exercising, you also have to be conscious of what you are or are not drinking, hence Thirsty Thursdays.

I definitely need to increase my water intake but getting started isn’t as easy as it sounds. So why not jazz up your water and make flushing those toxins a treat rather than a chore.

I love putting cucumbers in my water. I know, sounds crazy. Trust me, it tastes so refreshing.

I also read, that if you add lemon and mint to this delightful combo it is also a detox. Heck yeah…let’s give that a whirl!

If this combo isn’t your cup of water (hehehe) then try something else. The variations are endless, nutritious, and oh-so-delicious!

Want to use up a bunch of fruit before they go bad? Try freezing them in your ice cubes and add them to your water whenever the mood strikes you.

So what are your thoughts on this? Have you ever tried adding fruit to your water? What’s your favorite combo? What will you try next?

Remember – you’ll never know if you like it until you try it…or as I tell my little guy, this just might be your favorite thing. 😉
