I am terrible when it comes to drinking enough water everyday. I know that I am supposed to drink at least 1/2 my body weight in water everyday… but most days I barely drink anything more than my daily cup (or two) of coffee.

It's a bad habit and something that I desperately need to change but I am just not the biggest fan of plain water. Even flavored water is no fun. I try, seriously I do, but it just doesn't sound appetising to me.

My husband is the same way. He will pick up a can of soda before he decides to drink any water. Even when he says he is really thirsty. I am not quite to that point and hopefully will never be because I'm not much of a soda drinker either.

I think it's a little weird that he chooses soda first when thirsty because when I am really thirsty I'll drink a big glass of water, usually about 20 oz in a single chug. However, it's still not the first thing I think of when I want something to drink.

It's a terrible habit that I need to try and break. I don't know why it's so hard, I have kids that drink water like it's going out of style. I should just try and make it a game… maybe that'll help?

Currently, when I'm looking for a drink I'd rather have juice or something that has flavor. Like this beautiful cherry lemonade. I don't think it even lasted more than a day in our house. My daughter chugged about 2 glasses before I was even finished shooting these images and then I downed the one in the photo when I was done. Definitely something that I will be making more of!

And who knows… maybe this little water game will help me drink more water?

  1. I am exactly the same when it comes to drinking water, everyday I tell myself that today I’m going to drink tons of water and then halfway through the day I’ve already forgotten. This cherry lemonade is a fantastic idea, and I have to say your photos are just absolutely stunning :).
