I've always had to work hard to keep my weight at what I consider good for me. Numbers aren't important here, but lets just say I'm most comfortable near 175. Sound like a lot? Well much less and I enter bobble head territory. I know what to do and how to do it, but losing my pregnancy weight is more challenging than I thought it would be.





One of the things I know I have to do is, DRINK MORE WATER! I've started doing this immediately. I have an eye for fancy things so I love the cool water jugs and decorative water bottles that I run across in Marshalls, TJ Maxx, Target etc, and I own a few from metallic rose gold to ones with with dainty sayings. But for some reason I use these cool and interesting bottles for a month or two and then they begin to collect dust. But recently I bought a set of 12 mason jars. I bought them to assist me with my meal and smoothie planning. But one day I bought a mason jar to work with me (half filled with mimosa), and I began to fill it up throughout the day with water. 32 ounces of water. Without even realizing I had consumed the equivalent of 12 glasses of water that day. I consumed the same amount or more the entire week and I have been with no problem.









It got me to thinking about how this simple and sturdy mason jar got the job done. Sometimes in life we reach for the fluff. We want to have the decorated way to accomplishment. We want the glitter and cutesy sayings, when all we need is the simple blocks. Because the simple way is sturdy, reliable, and organic.
So I am getting back to basics. Having a solid foundation. It's important to start from your root chakra and get your footing. Glitter optional, but not necessary.
