So I hate water. Yes, I know it’s weird. I don’t like the blandness of it. I’ve also spent many a day hungover in college, and I associate water with bad hangovers (as that was my “cure”). However, guess what? To stay healthy, boost metabolism, and maintain weight, I need to drink water. So this is what I did:
1. Bought beverage dispenser at Wegman’s for $10.
2. Bought a cucumber, bag of lemons, and some cantaloupe.
3. Cut up the cucumber, lemons, and cantaloupe and mixed it in the dispenser with ice and Brita-filtered water.
4. Voila! Water is “spa water” and fun again. 🙂

Oh yes! So many fruits are yummy in water. I like apples, strawberries, mint leaves, cucumbers, lemons, oranges, cucumbers, or any combination! I really like strawberries and apples together as well as mint, cucumber, and orange!

I hate the taste of plain water as well. I love lemons, limes and cucumbers in water. I’ve also found that sparkling mineral water doesn’t have that same bland taste. I can easily drink a large glass bottle of Pellegrino water a day. Luckily Costco sells cases of it, so it isn’t very expensive.

@AllieANT: I am going to get some mint leaves this week and add those. I forgot about them during my groceries run yesterday.
@MrsPaulsBabyBallerina: Same here re: sparkling water. It definitely tastes better, but I heard that CO2 (the stuff that carbonates sparkling water) makes it harder to lose fat as it hardens it. Not sure if this is true or not, but I found that I was most successful in weight loss efforts when I just stuck with regular water – hence I’m trying to make regular water more “fun” using healthy methods not those fake sugar water enhancers that I see stores sell now.
