The new year brought new goals to our household. New health and wellness goals for us as a family and for me, it opened the doors to trying new things to help me live my best life! Today, I’m going to share one of the lifestyle changes I’ve made and why it is crucial to help me reach my goals: drink more water.
How To Drink More Water
One of my goals, was to continue to look for tools to help me lose weight and continue to live a healthy lifestyle while doing it. I started, after a few failed diet attempts, to do Intermittent Fasting. This is basically, a calorie deficit strategy-reducing your eating window and preventing you from eating sugar, fat and carbs at night when your body can’t process it.
Spring is a new season to recommit to your goals. Keep those New Year’s Resolutions going!
I adopted the 16:8, which is basically, you eat within an eight hour window and fast for 16. I start fasting at 7PM and resume eating at 11AMor 12PM. You should consult with your doctor before trying something like this, which I did.
One of the must dos for my new lifestyle is to drink more water. According to the experts, we need to drink half of our body weight in ounces. A lot of water, right? Time taught me that drinking more water is all about creating the environment, habit and just getting started!
One of the biggest obstacles was having water by my side, cold water all day during my workday.
I saw myself not drinking water because I couldn’t get up to stop working to grab a glass of water. I solved this problem by buying a Primo Smart Touch Deluxe Bottom Loading Water Dispenser which I already had in my kitchen, but I bought a second one for my home office. The sleek design matches my décor, don’t you think?
I love that Primo water goes through a multi-step purification process that includes reverse osmosis.
Reverse osmosis: commonly referred to as RO, is a type of filtration process. Untreated water, like saltwater or tap water, flows through a semipermeable membrane and carbon filters.
The membrane filtration technology enables the water to flow through the filter, but leaves behind salt, chemicals, minerals and other impurities. This results in highly purified, healthier drinking water that’s free from potentially harmful contaminants and also tastes great.
Primo water’s Purification Process removes or significantly reduces the presence of chlorine and chlorine by-products, bacteria and parasites, heavy metals (including lead and mercury), trace levels of pharmaceuticals and many more contaminants.
What I also love about Primo is that it is so easy and convenient to Refill with Water.
All you have to do is visit one of Primo’s indoor or outdoor refill stations (NOTE: some of these are still branded as Glacier water. Primo and Glacier are one company.)
You can bring your water bottles to a Primo self-service water station. There are more locations for more Primo!
To convert your Exchange bottle to a Refill bottle, it’s best to order a non-spill cap from the Primo website for easy transport.
Primo water is commonly found at big-box retail stores such as Walmart, Home Depot, Lowesand others.
The best way to find it near you is to use the zip-code locator on the Primo website. Dispensers are also available at big-box retail stores, in addition to the Primo website.
Once you get there, it’s easy as 1,2,3:
1.Place the bottle under the fill spout
2.Turn it on
3.Fill the water bottle and place the cap on the bottle.
Having the water right beside me, cold or hot, made it easier for me to drink more water!
A lot of people complain about not liking the taste of their water.
Another great reason to have a Primo water dispenser, is that the water tastes amazing!
Some of the benefits of drinking more water to help me reach my goals are: feeling more full for a longer amount of time; my skin looks gorgeous; and I honestly feel more energetic – I believe it’s because I am properly hydrated!
I’m also happy to report I lost 10 pounds so far with intermittent fasting and feel amazing!
I want to invite you to visit the Primo website to sign up for text messaging to receive a 20% off coupon code + free shipping. Let them know which dispenser would best suit your family.
