The BLC Challenge is a water challenge.... You get one point for each 8oz glass of water that you drink up to 16 glasses in a day (we don't need anyone getting water poisoning - yes, it's a real condition!)
So here's the real challenge... I don't get 8 glasses of water usually in a day.... how am I going to double that?!?!?!
The Mission... drink 16 eight ounce glasses of water a day.
The Plan... drink 1 glass of water for each hour you are awake. If you sleep for 8 hours and there are 24 hours in a day, then you'll get 16 glasses...
The Snag... POLYUREA (peeing a lot!)
So today I got off to a great start with our challenge... I got up at 4am and had a glass of water. Then another at 5:15 before leaving for work. Then had another at 6:15 when I got to work. Then it started. I had to pee. It's ok, let's decide if you need to pee, you should drink 4 ounces of water before going and 4 ounces when you get back, that will get another glass in (in addition to the 1 glass per hour). Ok, so I had to stop this at about noon. By noon I had 12 glasses of water in.... LOL That means I only had 4 glasses to drink by the end of the day. (and my co-workers think that I have a stomach virus or something because I've been running to the bathroom every 1/2-1 hour!) I added the drinking the water when I went to the bathroom because we were so busy that I figured I would forget to drink my water. (But I didn't!)
The good thing is that I have a bathroom about 20 feet from my desk. We'll see what tomorrow brings! LOL
Needless to say, I got 16 glasses in today for 16 points!
