Happy Hydration! EcoJarz Review & Giveaway

It’s Weigh In Wednesday.
and I weigh the exact same as I did last week: 190.
Which is great, considering my weekend was like a non stop all you can eat buffet.
but i’m not letting a no-loss week steal my thunder. I’m focusing on things I can do to make next week different.

Like Hydration!

When it comes to health and weight loss the one thing we hear constantly is how we should be drinking water.  But if we are honest, we usually don’t drink enough water despite the fact that we know we should. I find that I just simply forget. I needed something to help remind/motivate me to drink my water! Enter the Plant Nanny App!


I bought this app with my own money after seeing some other people post about it on facebook and instagram. Basically it helps you determine how much water you should be drinking and it reminds you throughout the day to drink them. If you don’t record that you drank it your poor little plant starts to wither away. As you keep hitting your water goals your plant grows. This totally reminded me of a Tomagotchi or Nano Pet! I’ve been using this for a few weeks now and I actually have a little plant garden of all the plants I’ve raised so far.


So cute, right? This app has helped me hit my water intake nearly every day for the past few weeks. And I feel great!

You know what else helps me drink more water? Awesome cups to drink out of. Enter: EcoJarz


This was another awesome product that I found thanks to Instagram (Do you follow me? I’m @courtnorm) and I totally loved the idea of this. So instead of drinking from a plastic water bottle this handy dandy little contraption turns a mason jar into a to go cup! I received the regular mouth lid in both the stainless steel and silicone, as well as the regular stainless steel straws, the smoothie straws, and a straw cleaner. They just recently came out with the wide mouth version of the lids too!


I made a smoothie and loved having it in my mason jar with my protein waffles. mmm.


I use it for drinking water with my meals, as well as at my desk. I try to keep a jar of water chilled in the fridge for when I need a refill and just switch out the lid.

I love that this takes something so common, like the mason jar, and makes it super useful. No more disposible water bottles and no plastic bottles that contain BPA or Phthalates, EcoJarz is safe for you and good for the environment!

And remember how I told you this week would be filled with fun and giveaways? Well we are still going strong! The Inner Strength Apparel and Bestowed Box giveaways are still open… but I’ve got another! One of you will get to win your own EcoJarz Lid!

  1. LOL @ Danielle!!!
    I keep a gallon jug next to my desk at work. I have it marked off in 2 hr increments to help me spread out my intake over the day. I keep a polar bottle on my desk and just refill it throughout the day. I’ve hit 128 ounces almost every day since I started using it.


  2. Love drinking with straws – I could never get enough water until I realized that I prefer my water cold, through a straw. Now I drink out of a big glass (with a straw!) at work!


  3. What a great idea! And the straw cleaner? I totally need that. I can’t tell you how many of those reusable straws I’ve thrown away because I drink smoothies with them and then I cannot get them clean!


  4. I have a tervis mug that says “Don’t mess with the Mitten” that I fill up too many times to count every day!


  5. I have a big metal water bottle that I try to fill at least 3 times before the end of the work day. I drink at least one more with my evening workout and then try to cut down on the water a bit after dinner.

    Anyone else feel like they go to the bathroom a million times a day when they are drinking all their water? Does it ever get better?


  6. I stay hydrated by adding Crystal Light flavor packets to my water…I tend to get bored of drinking plain water all day otherwise 🙂 My favorite flavor is peach-mango green tea and only 5 calories!! Drink up.


  7. I have a BIG glass with me at work that I’m constantly drinking from. I aim to finish it before I have to go to the bathroom next so I can refill it while there. It makes for a lot of little trips ;]


  8. Love to keep it a competition with myself — can I drink one of my 32 oz bottles before I leave the house in the morning, I’m halfway there! Also like the Pinterest idea of marking off a water bottle with what time you need to be at that level.


  9. I keep water with me everywhere I go, I find that if I always have water within reach I will drink more.


  10. I love ice cold water so I keep a big thermal mug at my desk and it keeps my water cold for hours. I also like to add fresh fruit to infuse my water with some flavor.


  11. I’m a sparkling water snob… actually I cut out diet coke and I need fizz of some matter so I can dream about ol’ diet coke. Trying to work my way past the sparkly too, but what I like to drink at home is just cold lime or lemon water. We always have them on hand just for this reason.


  12. I love drinking tap water with lemon. Usually I use a Nalgene bottle but I’d love to use the Mason jars I have at home. Super cute!


  13. I make sure to have a cup with a straw. I don’t know why, but I drink way more with a straw than without.


  14. getting a water bottle that i love because it makes me wants to drink more water than just using standard cups or bottles!
