A few months ago I shared with you my Weight Loss Story and what I did to lose weight over the winter into the spring. Amongst eating healthy and exercising, one of the biggest parts of my challenge was consistently staying hydrated and drinking lots of fluids. I kept a water bottle everywhere with me…in my purse, at work, in my car…if I was out, I was drinking water. My biggest issue though was that I prefer filtered water, so I was constantly either buying water bottles or trying to find ways to fill up my bottle at work or home before I left for the day. Then I encountered the PERFECT solution to my problem! Brita now makes a hard sided water bottle that does the filtering for you as you drink!! Today I’m going to show you how I worked to increase my water intake easily with my Lemon and Strawberry Infused Water and the Brita water bottle filtration system.
It’s super simple…
To enjoy more water, I constantly am trying to find new ways to appeal to my tastes. In the evenings I like to make my water bottle up by adding ice, water, fresh cut strawberries, and freshly squeezed lemon to my bottle. Then I let it sit overnight.
I love that I can just add water and GO! The water filter we have at work takes time to let things filter through it, so filling it up in a hurry is hard. Here I can just add my water and know that as I drink it’s getting filtered out and that “tap water” taste is going away right before my eyes!!
There’s nothing more refreshing then sitting outside with my kids and knowing that I’m doing something good for my body and staying hydrated during these hot summer months. We have a few of these bottles and I send them with my husband to baseball games, with my son to soccer or swimming, and I like to take them to work with me and for trips on the go! The fruit stays good in them too, so if you use it once, just refill it again and continue to enjoy it throughout the day. It doesn’t give it an overwhelming taste or anything, just an added bit of freshness.
So fill up your water bottle, sit outside, and enjoy the summer! You can grab a Brita Filtration Water Bottle at your local Walmart (near the hardware section) or find out more information about them HERE.
