    Action Tips, Drinking Water

    queenofkaossizzlinsand110.jpgI came across this article today in the newsletter I receive from the Worldwatch Institute.

    (very interesting publication worth signing up for)

    http://www.worldwatch.org/node/5063

    It outlines some surprising issues with bottled water that you may not have been aware of.

    Personally, I filter my tap water. My biggest health concern is the leaching of plastic into the water from the bottle. It is a documented occurence.  I don’t let water sit for long periods of time in my own water bottle either.

    I sometimes find it ironic how used to not having access to clean water that we have become.  I am old enough to remember the days that we used to scoff at the idea of buying water. We used to drink out of the creeks in our neighbourhood on our childhood adventures – we didn’t carry water bottles.  Wouldn’t do that today! (and no, I’m not 100 :0)

    It is definitely the time of year to be getting back on board with a Fit Yummy Mummy 12 Week Challenge – I am counting down the days to being 10lbs lighter and 12 weeks stronger!

    Holly gives us assignments throughout the challenge, today it is to examine perfection and the effect that it has on our results – and how it can more likely than not cause more trouble than it saves. I am looking at that today.

    How about you. Has perfection ever brought you down in your efforts to lose weight or get healthier?
