I “Hidrate” for…


I haven’t had a soft drink in 5 years. This isn’t a statement I make to sound boastful; it just happens to be true and it’s something I’m proud of, especially considering how I was before.

Before getting healthy, I regularly drank a popular diet soft drink. Let me change that a little…I ONLY drank a popular diet soft drink. No coffee, no water, no juice, ever. From the time I woke in the morning to the time I went to bed at night, this soft drink was the only liquid that ever entered my body.

I would daily go through cans and two-liters of the stuff. Walking in some local convenience stores was similar to when Norm would walk into Cheers on TV. They knew me, they knew my name, and they knew what I was there to buy.

There were plenty of times that I tried to make health changes, but was one of those people who said, “I’ll change but I just can’t give up my soft drinks.” Not surprisingly, I never made real progress or real changes.

But, that’s the old me. When I finally got serious about my health, I had to come to grips with what I was doing to myself. It became clear that I had to get rid of the soft drinks and commit to learning to love water. It wasn’t an easy change, but it was non-negotiable. 

Now, my go-to drink is water for many reasons, but the main one is this – it has given me new life. I’ve found that drinking water all day removes all the junk from my system that used to keep me feeling bogged down. I notice more mental clarity and motivation to eat better and exercise. I no longer am weighing myself down with drinkable calories and have more of them for good energy providing foods.

Now, I know some of our readers see this and think, “Good for you, but I couldn’t ever give up my ________________.” I’m here to say that you can and there is a whole new you that can be experienced beginning with making the switch to water. Need some help?

We’ve been excited to partner with a new product that can and will help.

– Tracks your water intake for you?
– Syncs with your Fitbit or Apple Watch?

What will you “hidrate” for?

P.S. The spelling of hydrate is different than the spelling of the company, “Hidrate”…

    Is it insulated, because it’s really hot where I live?
