I struggle with drinking the recomended 8 glasses of water each day. While I’m making a concerted effort, at best, I manage 5 or 6. I’ve discovered that by having a quality water bottle accessible and easy to use, I do drink more water. Not only does having a filled water bottle at arm’s reach encourage me, it also sets a better example for my daughters.
I recently saw an eye-catching blip-it about a woman who drank a gallon of water each day for a month. The before and after photos were very convincing (honestly, shocking) and convinced me that my water intake should be a definite priority. Not only is it slimming, it really improves your skin. It’s easy to replace water with juices, milk (flavored or not), soda, coffee, and all sorts of other beverages without even being aware. Before I know it, I’ve gotten so far away from drinking water everyday, it actually becomes hard to do.
To make it easier to reach healthier water drinking levels, I need a good system. Fit for We Mommy & Me water bottles are a great way to make sure you (and your kiddo) are drinking water! BPA free, these bottles are non-toxic, shatter proof (so helpful for little hands with the dropsies), and even dishwasher safe (top rack). The easy to manage design is a big help too. With a flip open cap that opens at the push of a button, the lid is easy to operate. And, it stays attached so there’s no lid to misplace. There’s even a small plastic finger-loop for carrying the water bottle around. Both of these bottles (25oz and 18oz sizes) come with a netted plastic insert so you could even infuse your water with some of your favorite fruits for a little kick. We don’t do that often as I’m really trying to encourage us to like the taste of plain ‘ol water!
It’s a big deal now to fill up our water bottles in the morning and to get an ice cold refill for whenever we turn on Just Dance on the Wii or head to the basement for some bouncing on our mini-trampoline or even start a game of indoor soccer with our hover ball! We can both stay hydrated during our “workout” by keeping our Fit for We water bottles close by and my daughter doesn’t beg for juice or milk…she’s completely happy to be just like Mom and use her Mommy & Me water bottle!
