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.
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!
How Do you stay Hydrated?
