New's happening this year....

.....and I really mean that. Really. ReallyreallyreallyreallyREALLY mean it!!

"Yea, yeah, I've heard that before." I'm sure your saying that to yourself right now. But! Here's how you know it's actually reallyreallyreally happening....

1. I haven't had a Dr. Pepper since New Year's Day. I did have a cup of Diet Coke last night, though. So, one cup of coke in three days is a major deal around here.

2. I have drank about 65 ounces of water for three days straight. 3 DAYS STRAIGHT, YA'LL!! That's serious. I hate to drink water. It has no flavor and appeals to me absolutely not at all.

3. I have daily logged my calories and excercise in myfitnesspal. Even that day that I went over by 700+ calories. I logged it anyway.

4. Did you see that word up there? Exercise. Yep. I'm actually doing that thing now.

So, there you have it. 4 reasons why this is the year.

I am sure you already know this but as you cut out the sugars and fake sugars and drink more water, your body will start to crave it.

Have you ever added things like lemon, grapefruit, cucumbers or anything else (even strawberries) to your water to give it some flavor? It is better if you make it the night before and let it sit in the fridge for 12 hours before drinking it but in the beginning it helps...

Good luck on your journey!

I was adding lemons to my water, but still wasn't feeling it. Then I added oranges and it was delish!! I add half an orange to my big blue jug and have it all drank a little after lunch each day. So much better than lemon.

I love strawberries and have never thought about adding those. I have some in the 'fridge and will try that this week. And, yes! I make it up the night before and leave it in the 'fridge. I was doing it more for a timesaver in the morning, but then I noticed the flavor was so much better!!

Thanks for all the tips, Amy!
