A Gallon Of Water Down The Hatch

Wednesday, February 20, 2013

Yesterday I consumed a gallon of water and surprisingly it wasn't that difficult. In fact, I'm quite sure this isn't my first time drinking a gallon of water just the first time I actually realized it. For the most part, I've always preferred water over other beverages so that has been an advantage for me. However, I did take a few steps to set me up for success.

1. Mind trick: Instead of buying a gallon container of water that may look a little overwhelming, I have my 16 ounce water bottles.

2. I calculated how many bottles I need to drink that was equivalent to a gallon and placed that amount of bottles on my desk. (I considered what I already consumed for breakfast and during my morning workouts).

3. As I consumed during the day my bottles started to disappear! I made sure I'd drink before and during my meals/snacks and if I left the office I always have a bottle with me.

In the end, I actually consumed over a gallon since I usually drink water with dinner too. I figure if I can get my gallon in over my 9 hour work day than if I decided to have something more tantalizing to my palette I'm good.

    Good job!

    The smaller bottles are a lot less intimidating. :)

    I do that too. I bring in a certain amount of 16 ounce bottles to work everyday. That way I know what I need to consume to meet my quota. That's awesome that you got in that much water and have a system to keep yourself accountable.
