In the past I didn’t have any issues drinking water, however, lately, this has been a challenge. I’m a sucker for apps, gadgets and anything that can help in my journey, and because of my lack of water, I knew I had to do something.
I tried an app called Water Drink Reminder. It was fun, every time I needed to drink water, the sound of pouring water on a glass came up. My co-workers always looked at me strange… Even though I liked that, I soon stop tracking my water intake.
I bought cute cups to encourage me to drink more water, but then again, soon I stopped. I put reminders and this was kind of successful during the week, but then during the weekend, I feel out of the routine again. I really needed help with this.
I live in Texas, and during the summers, I need something that keeps my water cold for longer and that it is easy to carry, I really dislike room temperature or hot water, UGH!
Enter Hydro Flask!
This is one of the most amazing bottles I’ve tried. It keeps my water cold for a long time, and ice doesn’t melt. I bought the 40oz bottle because did I mention that I have an issue with drinking water? 😉
But as you might off picked up, I’m not good with the tracking of the water. So I needed something else to accompany my 40 oz bottle. And there I found Plant Nanny. I know, if I didn’t use the other water app, how come I’ll use this one? Well, that’s easy…
It is a plant!
Well, at least, a virtual one. Looking at my plant’s sad face makes me drink water because I don’t want it to die. I saw the sad face once and that was enough for me to drink more water. I love that I get to have different plants, so far I only have one and another one in progress.
I’m not saying that I have been successful at drinking the 129 oz of water, but at least, I’m drinking more than before, in average, in the last 14 days, I have drank about 110 oz., that’s an improvement from before, where I spent days with only 40 oz of water or less in me.
The increment in water intake has also shown to be a solution or aid to my weight loss. I always heard about it, but I wasn’t sure of how much of an impact this has in the weight loss process. Drinking more water, has curved my appetite and cravings. And although I’m still struggling to keep within my Weight Watchers points – this is for another post – I know I’m eating less and making better choices.
I’m looking forward to see how many more plants I can grow and at the same time spread the love for Hydro Flask, so far I have two, and I’m sure that I’ll have many more.
Do you track your water intake? If so how? Do you have a favorite bottle? Share what you love!
