WFH = Project Hydrate Fail

First off, I’m so happy some of my new readers left me some comment love on my post yesterday. *snaps* for the new readers (the ones who commented and the lurkers – you all are wonderful). Welcome! 😀




After a happy breakfast with my pretty new floral bowl (click to see it – it’s gorge!), I kicked off Project Hydrate Day #4 with a hot drink.


Yerba Mate latte.



Bailey was quiet today. Look at that tongue! 😆


Project Hydrate continued with water.





I had leftovers from Tuesday night’s b-day dinner – grilled salmon and spinach orzo pasta and a Great Harvest honey WW roll – all heated in the oven.


I made some more energy bites on my (quick) lunch break. Click here to view my Cheerful Cherry energy bites recipe.


I snacked on a couple, too.


Tea latte over business after work. I had the cinnamon oolong tea latte fusion. So yum, so so yum!




I aaaalmost got to eat one of my favorite meals tonight – the vegetarian plate at a local Mediterranean restaurant. Unfortunately, I was doing dinner late and the place was closed by the time we called to order food.


So, I whipped up a quick dinner of frozen TJ’s halibut filets, a Great Harvest honey WW toasted roll with real butter…and…peas you think?


It looks sort of like peas but it’s asparagus! I chopped it small and sauteed it in EVOO with salt and pepper. I loved how the smaller size gave the asparagus a whole new texture – it wasn’t nearly as “stringy” as it sometimes can be.

Project Water – Day #4

It’s Day #4 of Project Water. Today, I WFH, and surprisingly, I do worse at drinking water when I’m home than I do when I’m at the office. I think this is because when I go to work, I have my water measured out and a real goal to complete by finishing the bottle(s) I brought with me that day. When I’m home, I just drink random cups of water and tea without measuring or paying much attention to totals. I do better when I set a goal and work to reach it.

So, today was a bit of a Project Hydrate fail.


  • 1 hot tea
  • 1 hot tea latte
  • 3 cups of water

Not so hot on the liquid consumption today. 🙁

I’m planning to WFH tomorrow, so maybe I’ll do better now that I’m paying more attention?

Do you drink more water/liquids when you’re home or when you’re away?


So, I was checking my stats the other day and lookie who my top 5 countries are for The Chic Life blog visitors:

  1. US – Hello!
  2. Canada – Hello, eh! 😆 jk
  3. United Kingdom – Hiya!
  4. Italy – Ciao!
  5. Australia – G’day Mate!

Ok, so all but one of my top 5 countries just say “Hi” or Hello” but I thought I’d spice things up with some fun variances.

Anyone want to guess who my top 5-10 countries are?

  1. Hey there, I am a regular reader and I am in Scotland. We DO say ‘hiya’ here a lot. Especially the kids! I had no idea you could check your stats to see what country your readers are from. I don’t have many readers though! Just a wee FYI we don’t consider the UK to be our country, our countries are Scotland, England etc. Have a great day!

  2. I’m one of the Canadians! Hellloooooo!

    I’ve been trying to keep up with Project Hydrate too. One thing I found is if I have water in a pint glass on my desk I will drink it easily and quickly. If I bring a Sigg bottle where I cannot see the liquid I barely drink half.

    I started reading a book called Mindless Eating last night and apparently there is something to the ‘visibility’ issue of food/drink. Leave a clear glass jar of sweets on your desk and you will eat more than if it’s a jar you can’t see in to. Interesting stuff.

    Ok I’m rambling…

  3. Diana, don’t sweat it. . .we will all have good and bad days on the “waterfront”! 🙂

    I am in the USA. . .Oklahoma to be exact. If/when you check your stats again, you will probably see a link to my blog because I mentioned you numerous times in my last post:

    Canadian Christine, love your blog. . .just checked it out from your link above. I am going to pick up that book. I so totally drink more when I can see what’s in the cup as well. And I do not put candy/sweets anywhere in my line of sight on my desk! 🙂

  4. Love the dog tongue pic because they are not easy to get. I am the SAME way about my water – easier at work than at home (plus we have a water cooler at work). I have to make a real effort on the weekends to get it in (plus we’re always running around, but you’d think I’d know where all the bathrooms were by now! It was years before I ever used a grocery store bathroom and now I’m in there almost every other trip!). Have a great weekend!

  5. i kind of failed yesterday, as well. but otherwise, i have been very proud of myself! i’ve never been a water drinker, and for some reason, i’m not having too difficult of a time. yay! hydrate!

  6. Hi here!

    I just started reading your blog about a week ago. 🙂 I was drawn by your little cutie pie of a dog!! Bailey is adorable! And so photogenic! 😉 Anyways, I know I’m kinda late with this, and I am by no means a nutritionist/dietitian, but I just wanted to add that a good source of water can also come from eating fruits and veggies! Like a juicy pear, nectarine, apple, orange – they all have some water in them. Salads, cucumbers, tomatoes – just some veggies that are pretty water-rich also. Fruits have a lot of natural sugar in them so I wouldn’t drink my full water intake by just eating fruits, especially if you’re trying to lose weight, but it’s just something to keep in mind. 🙂

    Thanks for the great posts! 🙂
