Building a habit - Day 5

Wednesday, March 06, 2013

Today I am supposed to write about what I can do to improve on this habit - drinking water. I feel as though I am doing it well, and there is not much more I can do except follow through on drinking it, follow my plan to get the first 4 cups in the morning and drink one first thing in the morning.

I think the real value in this blog is to keep that new habit firmly in mind. To keep me from letting it slip before it is hardwired into my life. I have to think about the daily question, and think about the habit, and renew my committment on a daily basis. I am also getting into a habit of blogging on a more regular basis. Perhaps I might have picked a different subject, but following the team guidance is a form of discipline. I like this!

I am going to continue drinking 8 to 9 cups of water daily, because it makes me feel good. and it makes my body work more efficiently, and it makes me feel fuller. And because I made a promise to myself.

I find it helpful to drink two glasses of water as soon as i get up. Then I strive to drink 3 more before noon, and then 3 more by 4 PM, no later than 5. Gets it out of the way, and any that I drink with dinner or meals is an added bonus. Also, I'm not waking up for frequent trips to the bathroom at night. This works for me.

Blogging is an added bonus! It was a very long time before I wrote my first blog. Glad you are enjoying it.

You are doing great - keep up the good work!
