bkr water intake template
Whoa. Has it really been over a year since I updated this?? And how many posts start with a similar beginning? I've no excuses...although I will place some of the blame on Instagram. I'm kind of infatuated with Instie.
One of my goals for 2014 was to increase my water intake. This hasn't been scientifically proven, but I suspect that I've been sorely dehydrated since 1993. I've drastically reduced my consumption of other drinks including my beloved diet Coke. We've been best buddies since about 1993. Hmm. Coincidence? Dunno, but I've finally figured out how to quit you! And the answer is water.
Ho hum. I know, not very exciting. But, I've determined that I do not like the taste of water from a plastic cup. But I really love the taste of filtered water from glass. So...I did a little research which lead me to bkr (pronounced beeker).
I LOVE bkr!! The glass bottle and silicone sleeve are so pretty, and environmentally sound, and awesome to the touch, and did I mention pretty? I went with the milk heart design which is sadly sold out, but don't be too disappointed because they have a bunch of lovely other designs. It took me several minutes over several days spent perusing their beautiful bottles before making my final decision. The cost is a little steep (about $36 - $42 when you add in shipping), but you won't mind once you feel this bottle. I really love the size of the opening. No dribbles!! I keep one on my desk at the office, and I plan to buy another for the home/car. I'm waiting for a really bright orange like this book cover.
I started my water routine in March, and now I'm drinking so much water that I can't keep track. I made a groovy bkr milk inspired water intake template. You can access it here. And remember, I'm a librarian not a graphic designer! It looks better if you print it in color even though it's white, black and grey.
Hey, bkr. If you're listening, how about designing a template that is equally as cool as your bottles??
