My favorite Drink Mixes

It is sometimes hard to drink enough plain water.  I have found a few mixes that I enjoy to keep my water intake where I want it to be. (12-15 cups/day) They do have artificial sweeteners in them which I am okay with. Another drink I have been doing lately is warm or cold water with lemon juice and splenda or truvia. Delicious!

I found these at Big Lots since I hate paying full price for anything.  I especially love the apple cider.  You can drink it hot or cold.  I like to add additional cinnamon, cloves and ginger but it doesn’t need it.  I add all of these to 24 oz of water rather than the 16.9oz they suggest to make it go further. The Special K mix is 30 calories the FulFill 0 calories and the Cider is 10 calories.



  1. Every tried Crystal light? I have totally switched my kids from Kool-aid, to that they haven't even blinked an eye. But it too is full of artifical sweeteners.
    I have a question for you what time do you get up in the morning? I am wondering do you always workout before kids get up or when they are out the door?

  2. I like crystal light for the family or sugar-free kool-aid but I only make it maybe once a month for them. As a family we either drink fat free milk or water. We rarely have fruit juice because of too much sugar and cost.

    I don't get up until 7am when I need to get the kids out the door for school at 7:35 and 9am. Next week I'll start running with my neighbor Mon and Wed at 6:30am but other than those days I exercise after kids are at school (I just have my almost 4 yr old home now.)if I can fit it in but my best workouts are after they are in bed around 8:30-11pm at night. Last night I didn't get home till 9:30pm so I didn't finish my workout till midnight.

  3. Wow, how do you go to bed just after a workout?
