I was able to drink my 6 glasses every day this week!

I watered half of my outdoor/indoor plants, and God watered the other half! haha

8 glasses of water in today.

So I Managed to get in my 8 glasses of water each day. emoticon

I wasn't able to water my flowers because we got a LOT of rain this week. My rain gauge reads 6.5 inches of water this week! So wasn't able to fulfill that part of my goal. emoticon

I still didn't get that recipe made for a WATER drink, such as a Slurpee or something. I'll work on that too.

A new challenge is coming!!

Hey! I think I can do this! LOL! I usually set out to do the weekly challenge and fail miserably, my fault, not the challenges'! LOL!

1. Tell us how many glasses of WATER you want to drink each day of this WATER Week and then let us know how you do. I know some people aim for 4 glasses a day, others 6, others 8, others 12 glasses or more. You let us know what is your WATER goal!

I always aim for 8 minimum a day. Usually I can get up to ten, between work water runs and taking my meds/suppliments.

2. WATER your inside plants or outside garden at least once.

Hmm. Ain't got any - not this one.

3. Take a BUBBLE BATH at least ONCE!

Hmm again. All we have is a standing shower stall. Might be a little messy.

4. Take your dog for a walk at least four times, letting your Dog WATER the TREES!

Once again, ain't got any.

5. Prepare a new Recipe for a low calorie WATERY Beverage/Slurpee. Let us know what you prepare. Was it good? Do you have a link to share?

Not at all one of my choices - rather have my water straight, thank you just the same!

6. WASH your CAR this week, using plenty of WATER.

If we owned a hose I might consider this. I suppose running it through the car wash doesn't count?

7. Go Swimming or FISHING at least once.

No public pools here, already too cold for the beach, and haven't gotten my fishing license yet. Another not this one.

8. Take a walk in the RAIN. This you will not be able to plan, but let us know if it happens!

Yeah! This I am pretty sure I can accomplish! LOL! Supposed to rain here for at least the next ten days!

9. Use WATER emoticons (glasses of water for exammple) when you write comments on at least 5 SparkPages. Let people know that it is WATER WEEK!

And I can do this!

Let the (Water) Games begin! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon (hey, snow and ice are made of water too - don't blame me!)

These challenges are what I'm going to do:
1. My goal is 12 glasses, now I can easily drink 10 glasses so I want to up that to 12 glasses (about 3 litres!) - today nearly reached my goal and I'm pretty sure I can!

2. I will try plant my plants especially when it's not raining and it's always raining unexpectedly, hehe

5. I think I'll try make drink recipe, though have no idea what, haha

6. The biggest challenge as I hate to wash my car all by myself!

8. Easily done, it's always raining whether walk to or from office AND when I have to hurry save my laundries, hehe

9. I've never use water emoticons at other SparkPages, so will do this, too, hehe.

Can't do challenges #3, #4, and #7 because no resource (no dog, no bathtub), no skill (don't know how to swim nor fish!), haha.

I am in for #1 -- 6 glasses. I have not been as consistent with this, so this should help!

I am also going to do #2 -- have not been as faithful with this as I should and the plants are all showing it. Droopy haha

I would also like to try for #7--the swimming, depending on if my dh can join me up with his plan at work. There is a gym and pool at the UofI we can go to. NEED to get this in the works, but hasn't happened yet. Maybe this week will be the impetus to that too. Yay!

Good, this one is easy for me. I drink at least 8 glasses of water every day. We have a pool and I swim on warm days, cooling off now so guess will have to stick a hand out in the rain. Does standing in the shower count, LOL. I don't do baths, especially with bubbles, bath salts, maybe. We do have 4 dogs and 2 of them are mine so letting them water the bushes and trees is done quite frequently every single day here. emoticon emoticon Drink up and have a good week. emoticon

#1 - I am in for 10 emoticon

#3 - I will see if my tub holds water as I've never tried

#4 - I have no dog, but I will walk while carrying a water bottle 4x this week

#5 - I've been meaning to find a good Smoothie recipe, so I will try one this week

#6 - My car needs this, but I will probably be an automatic place due to the outside temperature...

#8 - If the opportunity presents itself, I will do what I can

The pools are closed and if the current weather continues it will be much too cold to swim (54 F currently) and I hate walking in cold rains--talk about miserable. But I will do #1 (8 glasses a day), #2 (indoor plants definitely; not sure as it's getting too cold for my outdoor plants so I don't know how much longer I'll have them), and fingers crossed #3 because a hot bath sounds lovely *grin*

This sounds like a lot of fun. I'm in. Here's what I'll do this week.

1. I'll aim to drink at least 6 glasses of water a day.

2. I will water the two inside plants that we have.

4. I will try to take my daughter's dog for a walk at the park at least 4 times.

5. I'll see if I can find a recipe for some watery beverage. Already planned to make smoothies for breakfast. So I'll just have to look for something else a little more watery.

9. I'll use WATER emoticons when I write comments on at least 5 SparkPages.

Good luck everyone!

Great idea for a challenge!! Our team leader has a good sense of humor.

I will do:
#1-drink at least 6 glasses water daily
#2-water indoor plants at least once
#8-If weather cooperates (and since I live in south Louisiana, it should!) I will walk in rain. I actually walked across a large parking lot this afternoon while it sprinkled but will aim to do so again this week
#9-Comment on at least 5 sparkpages letting them know it is water week and using water-themed emoticons

Great challenge!

I'll do #1- 8 glasses of water a day. Haven't been real consistent with that lately, so maybe this week will help:-)

I'll also try to do #2-water outside gardens at least once. We might be FINALLY getting some rain this week, so it depends on that.

This is a pretty easy challenge, already drank four glasses so far and will drink another 8 by bedtime at least. Took Dave (the dog) emoticon out for a hours walk in the rain and fog and he watered lots of yards! So got two there and yep my plants look a little droopy so will water them, just can't do the swimming part, it's a little too cold for a swim in the river...how about we go skip some rocks? Have a watery week everyone, don't float away too far... emoticon

the 8 glasses of water a day is already a habit for me so not a problem - I will continue with that one. Definitely will water the outside and inside plants at least once a week. I will try to get creative with some other ideas which I can't think of right now but will try to let you know when I do it. hugs everyone and gl

Great challenge idea!

1. I aim for 8 glasses each day
2. inside plants yes; outside plants would likely float away since we have the wettest September since 1959...
which leads to...
8. I don't think I can avoid this since I take public transit with my faithful brolly
9. sounds like fun; I'll look for those, starting right now!
