My Mandate To Hydrate

My Teeth May Be Floating But Damn My Skin Looks Good

  That bandwagon I fell off, the “Mandate to Hydrate” one? Well, I’ve jumped back on. But this time, I have digital support. My hydration help comes in the form of an App called Drink Right. Don’t get me wrong, I can drink right. I rarely dribble down my chin onto my shirt. Unless of course that shirt is new, and white, and the beverage is red wine. Then I spill like the dickens. This App helps the dehydrated get fully saturated by providing (somewhat annoying) reminders throughout the day. It works like this. Download the *Drink Right App from itunes It’s .99 cents, but I got it free when it was offered as a free App from Apps Gone Free. What? You don’t have Apps Gone Free??! Oh my lord. Get it. It’s free and there are at least 7 new FREE Apps offered every day! It’s a steal. Well, it’s legal, but it’s a crime not to download it. Maybe I shouldn’t share? What if too many people get it and then it crashes and then I lose my free App connection? I obviously haven’t thought this through. Set up your specifics Input your age, gender, weight (don’t[…]

I’m so full of it, it’s no wonder my eyes are brown

The plans, the promises, the proclamations. I honestly believe in them…at the time. I am quick to jump on passing bandwagons, with every intention of remaining seated until the ride comes to a full and complete stop. However, I have a history of falling off said bandwagons the minute they hit a bumpy patch of terrain. Here are few of my plethora of passionate initiatives that have hit the bricks: Karma Cleanse I stuck with it for awhile. I did. And most days I strive to keep it alive, but there are days, man are there days, when I soak up catty gossip like a bun to gravy. Mmmm, gravy.   Mandate to Hydrate I know how important water is — for my health, for my skin, for energy, for weight control. So why don’t I drink more? Last week I downloaded an app called ‘Drink Right’ that actually beeps and tells me how much to drink and when. Hopefully this will help me bathe my insides with H2O.   Lisa Leftover Quest for Balance This epiphany seemed to fall on deaf ears. MY deaf ears. I really need to learn to listen better.   Making myself unavailable Ya, that[…]

My Mandate To Hydrate

  Gator skin, flakey fingernails that won’t grow beyond the boundaries of their nail beds, hair resembling a wheat field at harvest time… I’m in the midst of a dry spell. What could be missing from my daily routine that could be responsible for this desperately dry situation? I drink at least one glass of water a day so…. oh wait. Mystery solved. Our bodies are 70% water so I’m guessing it’s a tad important. I like water (especially with a little squeeze of lemon) so I’m at a loss as to why I’ve been avoiding it.  I have decided to end this drought and made a plan to liquify my assets so-to-speak and came up with a Mandate to Hydrate. I vow to drink water all day, every day for a week, and then *graph my results. The first day I may have overdone it. When my teeth started floating, I knew I had H2Overdosed. Day Two, I sipped water sensibly throughout the day (not madly gulping tumblers-full like a college freshmen at a Kegger like Day one). By lights out I had consumed about nine glasses of water. I felt good; maybe a little bloated, but in a[…]
