365 Days of Water and then some.
Friday, December 27, 2013
I want to start a water streak. I've been saying for over a month now that I want to do a 100 day streak of 8 cups plus of water a day. But that has yet to happen. It makes me wonder if I am not being specific enough. What is 100 days without actual dates? The timing would be perfect to do 365 days of water and this gives me start and stop dates with no "breaks".
I've formed so many good habits this year and made so many positive changes is so many areas that resolutions seem kind of old fashioned for me. I know what my focuses are, I know I try to keep a monthly goal blog, I know what areas I want to work on and I've tried balance in so many. So maybe a big goal/challenge would be good for me. I focus on working out, eating well, making sure I focus on my child, get a new job that pays better, do monthly goal blogs on SparkPeople, work on photography, work on myself and continue having a positive outlook on life, maintain my healthy relationships, get enough sleep, get enough water and continue to let go of negative people and things. So those aren't really resolutions that's just what I want to continue to focus on in life.
Someone at work received this and didn't want it so they sat it out for anyone who wanted it. SCORE!. It's a 25oz mug. I am in love with hot tea and this cup helps keep the water hot AND helps me get in three more cups at a time. I can tell you I have downed one "cup" of my dandelion tea already today so I'm well on my way to getting in my 8 cups.
In general I'm still not hitting my 8 cups a day but it is consistantly on my mind and is increasing. People have shared great ideas to help me get in more water which I appreciate and it's working well.
Update: 2/10/14 I am not doing well on this challenge at all. I've hit 8 cups maybe 7 days this year? It is still a continuous goal I keep working on though.
