week #20 in an experimental year…

One of my rituals for each new year is to choose a word to influence me for the year. My word for 2011 is EXPERIMENT. To support my EXPERIMENTAL focus, I commit to post the results of a new experiment each Sunday of this year.

My friend Jane inspired my experiment this week.   During her recent visit, I noticed she was drinking vitamin enriched water.  Like her, I’m trying to drink more water.  She said drinking different kinds made it easier for her.  So I thought I’d give it a try.

Over the course of this week, I drank 12 different kinds of flavored waters: fizzy, flat, fruit flavored, vegetable flavored, vitamin enriched, colored, clear ~ you get the point.

Here’s what I found out: I like my water like I like my ice cream – cold and as plain as possible.   My very favorite ice cream flavor isn’t even vanilla.  It’s sweet cream ~ it has no enhancements at all.

I’m just a plain chick, I guess.  So I’m sticking with my old-well-used-dented red Sigg bottle and fresh water.   Works for me.

What works for  you?


PS – I am officially UNPLUGGED this week.

I’ll tell you all about it (and reply to your comments)  next Sunday.

  1. I’m a great fan of ice cold plain water, but have a love for “cucumber water” too.

    Easy to make: add finely sliced cucumber, lemon, and a bit of mint to water. Let chill in fridge. Very refreshing!!!!!!!

  2. THANKS for the cuc- water recipe, Judi! will give it a try for that “spa-chick” feel 😉

    amma, see above for veggie water 🙂 and yes, i LOVE my Sigg bottle. have used it for yearsssssssssssssss…

  3. Good for you, Lisa! One of the most puzzling things in life is why people PAY for water. It’s one of the greatest marketing ploys in history. Hey, water’s FREE. People complain endlessly about the cost of gasoline, yet they’ll pay much more per gallon for WATER! Anyway, good for you Lisa for just relying on good ol’ tap water. And if you really want “vitamin water”, just drop a Flintstones vitamin in your Sigg bottle!
