When Your Water Gets Boring...
I tend to get bored easily with the same old same old. Drinking plain water every single day was beginning to bore me to tears. Actually it got to the point where I just simply stopped drinking water and I was not taking in the proper amount on a daily.
I figured that I would spice things up a little bit that way I can stay on this narrow path. For those that are like throw some lemon or limes in your water and add a little flavor into it. I have done that. I have even infused my water with a combination of cucumber, ginger, lemon and some mint leaves. Yes, it was wonderful, refreshing and makes for great tasting water but at the end of the day it still got boring and I found I required more.
I attended a party earlier this month, in the midst of my fast (I'm off the fast that's for another blog entry) and I was trying to find alternative things for me to drink beside water from the bar's tap. What's wrong with water from the bar's tap? Well, they normally pour the water out of the same nozzle they pour the soda and I hate the slight taste of Coke in my water. I heard Tonic water can normally be ordered at the bar but Tonic water is sweetened, I didn't want the sugar nor the calories. So I ended up drinking Seltzer water with lime in it and I was hooked.
I know there are many kinds of waters out there mineral, club soda, flavored but some of the flavors of the water itself were entirely too harsh so I stuck with Seltzer water. I found I can get my water and a soda fix all in one. Granted squeezing a lime, lemon or both in it doesn't make it a Sprite per se but it is damn near close.
Anyway, when boredom begins interfering with your water intake switch it up and try something new. Let me know you do to spice up your water?
