Thirsty Thursday


I think I lost those 2.6 pounds in all the liquid I peed out yesterday! Sorry if its TMI but I could NOT STOP GOING yesterday. I drank lots of water but I swear I was in the bathroom every hour on the hour! My grandmother butters and salts everything (which I NEVER do) so I can tell I dumped a HUGE amount of fluid off! Woof!

In honor of getting fluid in... (although I can't say if this is good fluid or bad...) here's a lovely drink! Sorry, it's not No Soda September compliant...but it is delicious!!!

Marvelous Mojito
Servings: 1 Delicious Cocktail


    •1 oz. (2 tablespoons) lime juice
    •8 mint leaves
    •1 heaping tablespoon splenda
    •1 jigger (1½ oz.) white rum
    •Club soda to taste


1. Put mint, lime juice, and sweetener into the bottom of a highball glass. "Muddle" by mashing ingredients together. Use the back of a wooden spoon or a spatula if you don't have a muddler.

2. Fill the glass about ¾ of the way with ice. Add the rum and top with club soda. Stir and enjoy.

Nutritional Breakdown
Soooo it's not the healthiest OR the lowest cal recipe...but sometimes, we just need a little something to kick off the weekend right? Compare it to a restaurant 3.5fl oz restaurant mojito and it's not so bad!!

  1. That looks delicious! Hydration and losing water weight is a good thing. Salt + butter on everything, not so good!
