Fitness Friday: Benefits of Lime & Cucumber Detox Water

              Happy Friday Love! I finally got around to making my Limes & Cucumbers Detox Water. I am pretty sure this drink has been around for a long time, but I only heard about it last year when I started writing fitness posts. When I heard detox, the words loosing weight quick came to mind. I thought it was one of those drinks that make you lose 20 pounds in 10 days. Don't get me wrong! Your body will benefit from drinking this water. The benefits range from having less blemishes on your face to feeling less bloated. Read more {here}

Fitness Friday             I did my water detox without the mint leaves. I kept it in the fridge for the whole night to let the limes and the cucumbers marinate. I drank about 8 glasses a day for a full week.  
Here is what I noticed after the first week: I went to the bathroom more frequently, either for number one or number two. I did notice less blemishes on my face. I guess that had to do with the fact that Limes contain a great amount of vitamin C. I felt less bloated by the third day. My stomach became less upset after I eat any big meal. That's what encouraged me to keep doing this detox. Not having to buy Tums every month is a good thing. What a good way to enjoy drinking water, too! The flavor is awesome. I squeezed some lime juice in the water, and that makes it taste so much better. I think the only weight that I lost was water weight. Nothing to jump on the bed about. I will continue to drink it to see if I will lose a few inches around my waist .

Have you tried any kind of detox water before?
