New Years Resolutions: One Month Review


Friday, February 01, 2013

Unbelievably, the month of January 2013 is already history. Remember those New Years resolutions you made? I do, because I applied the KISS principal this year; I've Kept It Simple, Silly. I made only one resolution: to drink 8 cups of water a day. So one month into the new year, it's time for a resolution check.

The good news is that overall I'm doing much better about getting in 8 cups a day. It isn't "natural" yet, but maybe it will get that way after I've been add it for a few more months. I've found that having several large water bottles helps, as I know that if I drink all of the water in my gym and work water bottles I've already hit 7 cups for the day. Where I seem to fall down is more on the weekends; I'm trying to resolve that by making sure I drink at least *two* full gym water bottles each day.

    AndrewMom - That's why I stuck to just *one* resolution rather than overwhelming myself with several. And I'm realistic that I'm not instantly going to start doing this 100% of the time; there will be days I won't get in 8 cups. But by saying that this is my resolution helps to keep it more on my radar so I'm much less likely to drop it out, as I usually do during colder months.

    I do not make resolutions - too much pressure and I never follow through. better to just make smart choices throughout the year and not the added pressure to keep a resultion going.

    That's exactly why I made this resolution this year; I too forget about water in the winter. Thanks for the encouragement!

That was SO smart of you to make a resolution that just wired you for success.
I find it harder to drink my water in winter. Do you? In summer, when I'm out and about I actually feel hot and thirsty, but in the winter I tend to forget. You're doing terrific!
