I don’t know about you but I am so ready to get back to the more regular schedules and set meal times that September brings. Don’t get me wrong Summer I still love you but I am ready for you to go until next year. Summer is all about being more casual and free and letting things go. Some of the things I let go (a little) were a few of my healthy eating habits. With the start of the school year, September always seems the perfect time to do a little reigning in and reorganizing before the holiday season. When I heard about the Sparkling Detox Challenge with Gerolsteiner Sparkling Mineral Water, I knew it would fit just perfectly with my September Reset. This post is sponsored by Gerolsteiner Sparkling Mineral Water. All opinions are my own.
Yes we fitness enthusiasts like to talk about balance and yes, life is all about balance. For me, that balance means switching things up from time to time. These last few months I definitely enjoyed my ice cream cones on vacation, sampling lots of coffee shops and a few glasses of Rose wine. That’s what summer is all about! I certainly started to feel that post vacation blah and I am ready for my September Reset. Joining in on the #SparklingDetox challenge with Gerolsteiner Sparkling Mineral Water seems like an easy way to start.
How does the #SparklingDetox work?
#SparklingDetox is a 5 day challenge in which you replace all of your beverages with Gerolsteiner Sparkling Mineral Water for the full 5 days. This is not a diet so you would continue to eat the healthy and balanced diet that you normally do. See here for a store locator or find it on Jet.com.
Join the Gerolsteiner Sparkling Detox Facebook Group. There you will find nutritional tips and recipes from Nutritionist Ariane Hundt.
What are the benefits to participating in the #SparklingDetox?
A focus on hydration for a few days. On days where I know I am eating well and staying hydrated, I feel like I have all the energy in the world. Even my skin seems to look better. The high mineral content provides essential nutrients such as calcium (84 mg/8 fl oz), magnesium (26 mg/8 fl oz) and bicarbonate (482 mg/8 fl oz), which the body needs daily and cannot produce itself.
Mineral water has no calories, no sugar or added flavors. It’s a wholesome way to hydrate after workouts and a natural easy way to detox. What do you have to lose? I roped a few friends into trying it out after our recent run.
I am certainly going to have a little bit of a challenge with the coffee aspect but I am going to try to do it. It’s only 5 days! What do you say, would you like to join me for the #SparklingDetox? It starts today.
