Resisting the Bagel; Perking Up the Water

I had to get a thyroid ultrasound today, so I didn't have breakfast (appt was 11:30am, got done 12:30pm, humph) in order to not risk some reflux. Was mighty peckish when I got out, so I headed to a local bagel place.

There, I ordered an all-the-veggies-you-got scramble with ham and cheese. (veggies = mushrooms, onions, green peppers, tomatoes, spinach, and broccoli.) I had 2/3 of that. Had tomato slices instead of potatoes/grits/oatmeal as a side. Had coffee and water. Totally did not touch the lovely Everything bagel that kept winking seductively at me. Brought it home for hubby and me  to share tomorrow AM--or just for him. Haven't decided. Will see what I want after I get up.

Breakfast today racked up 652 calories, says my nutrition tracker. Good thing I didn't eat it all!

Will admit hat the cheese and ham made me thirsty and, being someone who really hates to drink plain water unless I've sweated up a storm and am dying for it, I was glad to have my package of TRUE Lemon products delivered (the lemon, lime, and orange kit). I'm sipping a tall and cool one with the lemon as I type.

Have any of you tried the fruit trick with water? You know, adding whatever fruit(s) you have handy--berries, tropical, kiwi, crushed apple, whatever--in order to make water more interesting? I'm gonna macerate some pear and try that next time I get some pears.

What have you tried?

I tasted the most amazing water once that had different herb plants and mint in it. I wish I'd gotten the recipe because I've never tasted it's equal!! (ummmm... fond water remembering! :)

I'm just a die hard lemon water junkie. Those calories add up real quick like don't they? I always find it odd that we're supposed to subsist on x amount of calories, yet you eat out and eat most of them in one sitting...*sigh*

I sometimes put a few drops of bottled lemon juice in my water. But usually just to remind me of lemonade because I can't get it here.

I actually kind of hate flavoured water, I much prefer plain. When I was about 12 I went off drinking other things (have never really been a soda person unless we went out and there were no other choices) and only starting drinking soda again when I was about 22 and working at disney (soda fountains were free for us and I'd get thirsty during work). Now I can drink other things if I have to, but I don't buy anything in, ice water just does it for me I guess.

My latest thing that I had at a restaurant is lemons, strawberries and mint. Oh my goodness, it is delicious water!
