Wednesday already? Well, better late than never. I’m still here, I’m still drinking water, and I’m happy to say I haven’t drowned. Yeah!
|Monday||52 oz||I determined that I needed to make an adjustment to my goal because I value my sleep and don’t want to wet the bed. No more water after 9 P.M.|
|Tuesday||52 oz||I don’t know if this is coincidence, but I noticed today that my lips did not feel chapped at all today. Normally I use lots of chapstick throughout the day, but today I only applied in the morning and in the evening.|
|Wednesday||48 oz||Not quite as much as the last few days. I realized that I was drinking 16-20 oz glasses and decided to drop down to 8 oz cups as a minimum. I noticed that I was forcing myself to drink, which defeats the purpose of mini-habits.|
|Thursday||40 oz||I’m kind of sick of water. Am I only counting water in this challenge or can I do other liquids? Does coffee and wine count? Hmmmm….|
|Friday||48 oz||This morning I was running crazy late and didn’t get my first thing in the morning glass of water. By the time I got to the office, I was thirsty… maybe this is the start of a really good thing.|
|Saturday||60 oz||I had an awesome day today and was feeling great. Since we spent so much time outdoors I made sure to grab extra water.|
|Sunday||40 oz||Today I was traveling and running around all day so didn’t do great. My lips still aren’t chapped, and my skin doesn’t feel as dry as it had been. That could be because it is Spring… but I’m also counting this as a victory.|
|Monday||48 oz||Start of a new week and lots to do. I’m not as tired as I have been, and I haven’t really changed much about my routine.|
|Tuesday||56 oz||I’m still at it and feeling good. Not a lot to report.|
So after a week and some change there have been a few things I’ve noticed… my skin doesn’t hate me. I’m a little torn on if this can be totally attributed to drinking actual water more often, or to the changing seasons. Who knows.
I’m keeping at it and despite the fact that I’m a little sick of water I feel pretty good about this change.
