A Gallon a Day


We all know the drinking water is so good for you! Here are some awesome benefits to drinking a gallon of water a day!

Your skin will look beautiful. Drinking water helps your skin looks moisturized and glowing it will also help reduce any bloating and puffiness in your skin.

Helps you focus. Drinking enough water can ensure that your brain will have an oxidant oxygen that it needs to function at its optimal level how cool is that!

Removes toxins. You know when you drink a lot of water and you have to frequent the lady’s room well this is actually really good thing you’re reading your body of all kinds of toxins.

Better digestion. Water can seriously improve your body’s ability to break down food and remove discomfort from digestion problems. I come from a family with serious digestion issues and since drinking more water I can’t even tell you how much better I have felt.

With the awesomeness also comes a few cautions that I want to share with you if you choose to take the challenge or the plunge and drink a gallon of water a day

Not consuming enough fluids can lead to dehydration we all know that. Dehydration can be caused by a whole slue of things: excess sweating, fever, diarrhea and vomiting or even diabetes. Common symptoms of dehydration are: nausea, a sore throat, dry mouth loss of appetite for food or fluids and feeling ill.

The polar opposite of dehydration is Water Intoxication

Water Intoxication is rare but it can happen if you drink too much water too quickly. What you need to know: Drinking a gallon of water is absolutely safe if you spread it throughout an entire day but if you consume a gallon of water per hour you are at an increased risk of water intoxication and it can be deadly. Please be careful!! One of the reasons that I created my gallon jug with the times is so that I don’t overdo it.

**Drinking a gallon of water {safely} a day is more than the recommended intake but you will not have any harmful effects on your system if you are not dehydrated.

I’m not drinking a gallon of water a day because I thought it was going to cause a miracle weight-loss. Honestly the main reason that I started doing this is because I am easily susceptible to dehydration and with it getting warmer I don’t want to risk heat exhaustion as well. I don’t want to have dehydration headaches anymore. I don’t want to feel gross and sluggish because I’m dehydrated.

I’m only a few days into “30 days of drinking a gallon of water a day” I can tell you is that my skin seems brighter, I have more energy, Yes! I am peeing quite a bit more but thats totally ok with me and hey it’s getting rid of all kinds of nasty toxins in my body!

Quick and easy tips if you choose to start drinking a gallon of water a day!


Grab a gallon: find yourself either a gallon jug or do what I did and thoroughly clean and empty milk jug or orange juice jug, whatever you have!

Mark it: on my milk jug I have 9 AM 11 AM 1 PM 3 PM 5 PM 7 PM and 9 PM. This is really help me stay on track

Use a glass: I have been using a tall 24 oz canning jar. I keep my gallon of water in the refrigerator and I fill up my 24 ounce jar put a straw in it I drink that down when it’s empty I refill it and so on until my gallon is gone.

Don’t be too hard on yourself: drinking a gallon of water a day for most people is a pretty big undertaking if you start out and you don’t feel like you can drink an entire gallon don’t push yourself work up to a full gallon.

Kick your metabolism into gear!


I can virtually guarantee that at some point you have heard the word “metabolism”,  more than likely you have heard individuals talking about their “slow” or “fast” metabolisms. Not quite sure exactly what a metabolism is or does? No worries I’ve got you covered!

Your metabolism is the internal system that turns what you eat and drink into energy. Metabolisms can fluctuate by speeding up or slowing down. Since we want in to stay sped up the question is how can we maintain a fast metabolism or signal to our body to start speeding up and burn fat? Believe it or not it is actually fairly easy! Here are five great ways to kick your metabolism into gear!


Sleep helps you body perform at optimum level during the day. Sleep deprivation can actually tell your metabolism to slow down and we don’t want that!!


Drinking water can actually speed up your metabolism so when you hear “Drink 8 glasses or more of water a day” DO IT!


By eating 3-4 small meals a day your metabolism keep burning fat for hours!

Soleus Fit GPS Watch {Review}

This post is sponsored by Soleus Running. All opinions are 100% my own. See my full disclosure policy.


“Simple and easy to use, the Soleus GPS FIT will allow runners to accurately track their Speed, Pace, and Distance. Auto lap splits at every mile and the “always on” night light mode helps for late night (or early morning) runs and training.” 

bothWriters have their favorite place to write, coffee drinkers have their favorite drink, cooks have their favorite recipe and hikers have their trial and me? Well, I have my favorite fitness gadget!

When it comes to running or hiking there are things that I’m just never without: my Running or hiking shoes, a bottle of water and I never EVER leave home without my Soleus GPS Fit watch!

I was beyond excited when I was recently given a Soleus GPS Fit watch to try out from Soleus Running! Awesome right?!

To be honest with you I have wanted a GPS watch for really long time but I wasn’t sure where to start or what brand…I was kind of at a loss.

When it comes to Soleus I am EXTREMELY impressed!

They have a number of different GPS watches ranging from $99 to $299!

So why do I love my GPS fit watch? And why do you need one?  First of all, the features alone will make you fall in love!

Check out the features that the Soleus GPS Fit watch has:

  • GPS
  • Distance
  • Peace and Speed
  • Data Upload
  • Sport Ventilated Strap
  • Calories Burned
  • Large Digits
  • Coronagraph
  • Data Storage
  • World Time
  • Rechargeable Battery
  • EL Backlight
  • 30M Water Resistant

On top of all the awesome feature printed on the back plate of all the Soleua Fit GPS watches “a journey of 26.2 miles begins with a single step” Now that’s pretty cool!

My Thoughts:

From the moment I took my watch out of its box, I knew I was in love with this watch! Yes, I know it sounds silly to be in love with this watch, but seriously, this is what I have needed for so many months, something to help me keep track of my distance, my speed, AND my calories… honestly it really has been nice to know time it is too!!

My watch it was delivered at around noon on a Thursday, by 6 PM we had already hit the trail once and we’re heading back for a second time! Before getting my Soleus GPS Fit I relied on a app…that wasn’t always reliable especially on the deep wood trails my hubby and I love so much. Plus I ALWAYS had to find a place to carry my phone…which I didn’t like very much!

We even had a fun finding that first day: For over year we have gone on the same trail at least 4 to 5 times a week and although there is a sign that tells us how far the trail take you round trip, my husband and I both had speculation that it was off. Well, guess what??! We discovered that it was in fact off and we were getting far more mileage than we thought! YAY!


As someone who doesn’t wear a watch or bracelets, I so surprised that I barely even know when I have this watch on! Although it is fairly large faced, it is extremely light and comfortable! The watchband is a rubbery texture which I really like because I like wearing my watch up a little bit above my wrist and the watch band helps it stay in place! It not like other rubbery watch bands that I have had in the past that get itchy after a while…hence the not wearing watches.

The GPS:

Since receiving my Soleus GPS Fit it seems like no matter where we are, trail, shopping or running I get stopped by at least one person asking about my watch {I’m sure people are noticing the pretty bright blue} One of the main questions I get  asked is “how easy it is to find a GPS signal” Evidently, this is a issue for a lot of people.

Here is my response to that question while using my Soleus GPS Fit!

After the initial set up of the watch I stepped outside and search for a GPS signal and I think it took maybe 90 seconds to find one! That seems to be pretty average for me other than our trails that are very deep in the woods trails. We usually start searching for a GPS signal before we get to the parking lot and by the time we are ready to hit the trail we have a GPS signal!

There has been a time or two when it’s taken three or four minutes to find a GPS signal but please keep in mind my husband and I are avid trail runners and we go in any weather! One such time it was totally completely overcast and a downpour!! I am very impressed with how quickly and easily the Soleus GPS Fit watch gets a GPS signal!

The watch is really easy to use and set up!

I’m sure you noticed in the very first picture that there are two Soleus watches, my blue one and a black one! Well, my husband also has a Soleus GPS watch {GPS Pulse + HRM} His watch has some different features, so in October I am going to have a review on that watch is well!

Another awesome perk of Soleus is the software download so that you can transfer all your runs {hikes, rides act} to your computer!


BIG ol’ GIANT Thank you to Soleus Running for providing us with this amazing GPS Watches!!

“It seems that as soon as the calendar turns December 26, our minds want to fast forward one week and forget that there’s still six days left of the year.  We being to think about the previous year… what was good, what wasn’t so good… and we contemplate some changes so that the next year has a little more “rights” and a little less “wrongs.”

This book takes you through the steps I took to teach myself how to become a better home cook.
