It's Been One Week.... with Cirkul
Friday, June 05, 2020
I hate water. I really do. I have never really been able to just drink plain water. This is something that I really struggle with.
One thing that I would not give up when I decided to start this journey is Pop- more specifically, Cherry Pepsi. I was almost drinking a full 2-liter every day by myself. I knew it wasn't good for me, but I just could not bring myself to drink plain water- or any of the various flavored waters or Mio- and other- flavorings (because of the weird aftertaste I picked up on).
I found Hint water- and I loved it! I just didn't love the price. For a 16 oz bottle of water, I would have to pay $1 or more, or $4 per day to reach my 8 glasses goal. That's $124 per month- and not an option for me.
Then I came across an ad for Cirkul water. It's a flavored water system and you can control the flavor intensity. The water bottle is 22 oz. The time each cartridge lasts depends on how much flavor you want in your water. I set my dial at 2 and my first cartridge has lasted eight days, going on nine. I have averaged 3 bottles (66 oz) per day, sometimes more.
I have not had a glass of pop since May 27th, and I have only had a few drinks of pop (maybe 4 oz total) during this week.
I do feel better. I have not craved any pop since last week.
Next Goal: Tackling Exercise- short walks and a little bit of gardening.
