Cinnamon Water……

I am obsessed with cinnamon water. I know that sounds a little strange. Everyone I have told this to, all have made an ill facial expression. They ask why are you drinking cinnamon water? Yes, cinnamon water tastes really – really good whether it’s hot or cold. 

When I was looking up new ways to drink water, because I just don’t like drinking water. I came across cinnamon water. I’m like who would drink cinnamon water?  I was thinking cinnamon powder in water would look totally disgusting, but what about using a cinnamon stick instead? 

The first time I tried cinnamon water. I boiled the water like you would do tea, a cinnamon stick in place of a tie bag, and hope for the best.

Someone suggested adding honey and that would be hot cinnamon tea. I tried it, it was way ~ way too sweet, and I couldn’t drink it. I added a piece of ginger in hope I would like it better. I realized hot cinnamon tea doesn’t really work for me.

Another good use for the cinnamon stick is pineapple. How to make cinnamon pineapple tea:

  1. Wash and cut the pineapple. Leaving some fruit. I also add the core of the pineapple and the fruit is a good snack or toppings for a salad.
  2. Add pineapple in either a tea pot or a pot of water, filled water to the top, and then add a cinnamon stick.
  3. If you like a little spice, you can add a fresh piece of ginger.
  4. Strain the pineapple and cinnamon stick
  5. Add honey, {if you like it sweeter} but to me it’s sweet enough.  
  6. E.N.J.O.Y

The question was why would you drink cinnamon water? I couldn’t recall all of the goodness in this tasty drink.

What are the benefits? “Adding cinnamon to your water is not only hydrating and delicious, it can also supply an array of health benefits, such as: delivering antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anticancer properties, supporting heart health, lowering cholesterol, and potentially aiding in weight loss,” says Poon.Aug 1, 2021)

There may be more ways to drink cinnamon water than these two ways. I like the pineapple cinnamon tea hot and the cinnamon water cold.

After a short 35 minute walk around the neighborhood, it’s nice to have a nice cold glass of cinnamon water, while I watch anime, and maybe think of a new crochet project…

Starting Over….

I am Not sure when I lost track of “Me,” but somehow that is what I did. I was so proud of the 23 pounds I lost, but my doctor didn’t see it my way. I know she was explaining something important, but I was too upset to pay attention. Yes, that was beyond wrong.

That was a few days ago and I can either stay in the past or I can move on. I am looking ahead to a better me and leaving the old sad girl behind. I started a 25 push-up challenge for 30 days. I know I am a few days late, it was 25 this morning and another 25 before I have my last cup of water for today.

I have also stepped up on drinking water. Hot lemon water with a little honey, turmeric, and ginger makes drinking water a little easier. I may be cheating a little, but I am drinking more water. 

I am creating more and running out of space, it’s time to get to selling my projects. I also realized a few things?

  1. I enjoy creating crochet projects..
  2. I like to make something personal for anyone who likes homemade crochet items.
  3. I am NOT ALL ABOUT $$. Yes, I would like to have a little extra spending $$ in my pocket. The thing is I know there is a person on the other side of the computer screen and why not get that person in on their special items..

I am on the hunt for another anime while I work on my next project…..
