Now to the habit setting portion of my plan:
I do not drink enough water. I know I don't. Since being properly hydrated is a cornerstone of any healthy lifestyle, this is the habit I am going to tackle first. I am going to get all my whining out of the way now. I don't like the way water tastes. That's really my only beef with it. Most of those drink mixins, though are full of either sugar (I may as well have Kool-Aid) or are loaded with artificial sweeteners, which I have cut almost completely out of our home.
After doing some research along the aisles of the commissary, I ran across these on the health food aisle.
These do contain sucralose, which I am not a fan of, but it is a very small amount. Plus I am getting 40% of my daily fiber requirements. The packets are designed for a 16.9 oz. bottle, but I mix one into my BPA free 32oz. Nalgene bottle. It gives the water just enough flavor to make it appealing to me. I also picked up some Gatorade G2 mixins for after workouts.
