I follow a blog called Tales of Beauty for Ashes. I love reading along as the blogger is so real and tells it how it is. She is also very spiritual and I enjoy those posts. Well, she’s doing a monthly challenge and February he has challenged us to drink more water.
I really need this!! I am horrible at drinking water! It’s no wonder I always get headaches and feel sluggish and lazy. Water helps with so many aspects of your life!! Who knew?! LOL Well, I think we all know that, but we tend to ignore it. At least I do. I drink maybe 3 cups of water a day. I have been trying to drink more water the past month, but it’s so hard! I get so busy doing other stuff and I just forget to drink.
I have a plan for this month though! In the past what has worked for me is filling up a water bottle and carrying it around the house with me. This way I am getting at least 3 cups of water down once I’m done with the bottle and I don’t have to worry about spilling it, or my toddler spilling it. I am very accident prone. I spill stuff all the time. It’s no wonder my kids are the same way! hehe
So, for this month I’ve decided I’m going to try a different approach to my old method. I like the idea of having a water bottle but I don’t always finish it off or I get bored of having to hold my head back to get all of it out at the end. Becky has a couple different pictures on her blog of cups and glasses and one of them is of those plastic ones with a lid and straw you can get these days. I see them everywhere! I actually considered using them for the boys’ teacher appreciation gifts last year, but they’re quite pricey! My boys had 4 teachers between the 2 of them and at $4 a cup they would run me into the ground soooo I went with a cheaper version. BUT I’m thinking that since I’m one person and a new fun cup would get me excited about this challenge I might just splurge and buy one:) Having the straw will make it easier to drink and do my work at the same time. Yay!
I think I might even have a little fun with my Silhouette and vinyl, which have been sitting on my desk collecting dust since I’ve been working so much on sewing, blogging and photography. *SIGH* I miss it! So, I’m definitely heading to walmart tomorrow and then going to have fun decorating my new cup! I bought some pretty light purple vinyl a while ago at Porters for pretty cheap and I haven’t used it yet so maybe I’ll give that color a try!
Thanks for stopping by! I’m excited to accomplish this challenge this month and I hope you are too!! Come back tomorrow to find out what the new organizing room is!! 🙂 Hope you’re having a happy Sunday!
