Once-upon-a-time I drank very little water. Why? Well because I did not have a strategy, habit, or a real reason to consume a certain number of ounces per day. Along the various fitness-freaky stages of my life, I starting to become a water bottle snob. Some water bottles made it more enjoyable or easy for me to reach my personal goal of 1 gallon per day, while others got tossed in the trash within weeks of their purchase.
After college I succumbed to the “Gallon Jug Club” (or the GJC as I jokingly call it). This was the easiest way for me to guarantee I would hit my target every damn day. I did this technique for years up until recently when I started researching more about WATER.
I began looking-up the different types of water, what water vessels/bottles are best to drink from, etc. Now, I was clearly aware that drinking from crappy plastic was not the best choice – BUT I thought it was a good enough choice and better than TAP, that’s for hell sure.
The new technique I have adopted and want to share with YOU and all of my clients is my, TWO-GLASS-MASON-JARS-PER-DAY plan.
Why two glass Mason jars?
Well, it’s waaaay less intimidating than try to consistently consume a big a** gallon jug of water. I think it is also a bit more classy; plus you are drinking from glass, NOT plastic.
- Choose 2 large Mason jars that hold 4 cups of liquid each. Fill them up with your best version of water (i.e. purified, reverse osmosis + alkalized) and sip or chug through your day.
This easily gets you into the 1/2 a gallon a day club! Congratulations!
Thirsting for more? Good, you are ready to for the next step and adding your next jar.
- Try adding organic lemon and lime juice, a dash of pink Himalayan sea salt or a bit of your favorite natural Gatorade (mine is Amped Hydrate by Isagenix) to each jar; you will have the EASIEST time flying through those first 2 jars and start to crave another.
I’m serious! Don’t knock it till you try it. You can also try my ELECTRIC PUNCH recipe in your jars. You will feel like you’re sipping on a margarita and won’t even care you’re up to pee a few extra times during the day.
Bottom line – if you are struggling for a way to get your water IN, please try this EASY Mason jar technique this week and comment below on how well you did!
Good luck, and I’ll see you in line to the bathroom 😉
