HCB's Journal, 20 January 2013

The temperature is plummeting down here in the North Country as we prepare for the subzero days ahead.

I am drinking lots of fresh water and have recently started to drink warm water since it is so darn cold outside! I add a slice of lemon and it is relaxing and refreshing.

Here's an interesting weight loss link about hot water and lemon:

Benefits of warm water and lemon

Still grateful for:

- The people I love who love me back!
- The good health of my loved ones
- My FS Buddies who support and encourage me to continue
- "Butt-kicking" myself to a smaller size today

Thank you so much for that link; someone told me the other day that drinking lemon in warm water was good for a couple things like weight loss & keeping things moving. What I just read encourages me to go buy some lemons and start a morning ritual, even if I'm a little allergic to citrus. I have lemon juice in the fridge; think I'll try it soon (I love lemon anyway). Stay warm!

Stay warm! Wonder if you could do the trick where you toss a bucket of water in the air and it freezes before hitting the ground?

I just had a hot lemon and honey drink tonight :) It's one of my new favorite drinks for night time in the winter. Good to know it has benefits, too.
