These are the books I would suggest you read. These are some of the books we have read and love. I hope that you take the time to open a book and open your mind to new ideas and experiences. In our home we read together for 30 minutes. We take turn reading to our littlest who is in the emergent reader stage. Then we model reading by pulling out a great book to read. I know that my children will also fall in love with books because we make sure that we have books everywhere and we encourage them to read with us.

Lemon Water Weight Loss Recipe

Lemon Water Weight Loss

I was skeptical. I also do not need to lose any weight. I do however workout 5 days a week and I have that layer of something over my abs. I am pretty sure it is cupcakes. It could have resulted by having three babies. It does however need to leave. I am tired of it. I decided the one diet I would do is to change what I was drinking. I drink Spark which I love. What is Spark? I also drink milk but then i have a sweet tea issue. I got rid of sweet tea for two weeks and replaced it with Lemon Water Weight

Lemon Water Weight Loss

1 Pitcher of water

Ice

2 lemons

1 cucumber

1 sprig of mint

Combine the ingredients above.

I drank 5 glasses a day. The question is did it work? Can you lose weight by just drinking lemon water? I mean does drinking water lose weight?  I wasn’t actually trying to lose weight. I want to lose the extra belly layer. The answer was yes. I didn’t lose weight on the scale but I did lose the layer. I think I needed to hydrate. I was retaining water because I wasn’t drinking enough and I do believe the lemon water helped. I would also like to say that increasing my water consumption also resulted in clear skin. The water was refreshing and I still drink it. I just make a pitcher and place it in my refrigerator.
