# Week One of Spring 5% challenge includes drinking lots of water

### Saturday, April 03, 2021

I think having a "Do" as opposed to a "Do Not" this first week of the challenge could be a way that I personally start off with some success.

Here is part of the description from one of our team challenge threads.:

"Spread drinks of water throughout the day, especially before and during meals [...] Add a glass of water each time you eat, like an extra course. It’s common to confuse thirst with hunger.[...].

[...] a life hack tip - drinking 2 cups of water before meals can make you lose an average of 4.5 more pounds within 12 weeks.

Record all exercise minutes. . DAILY MAXIMUM 120 exercise minutes/miles.
Scoring: 1 minute of exercise = 1 air mile
Living the Good Life – Drink Your Water - Daily MAXIMUM 8 Cups to record

(example)
Exercise: 45
Glasses of Water: 8
Team Exercise 85 + 45 = 130
Team Glasses of Water 55 + 8 = 63

Edited Addendum: Aha I score one point for each 250 mls. That will be easier to track than ounces for me. I have plenty of water filled up for the first half of my day.

Each 8 ounces = 1 glass/cup = 250 ml = 1 point (no fractions)

Wow, I did not drink all my water yester day. I drank the 2x 500 ml bottle and then I drank half of each of the 2 700 mls.
The total water drank was 500+ 500+ 350+350 mls = 1700mls. Is that just 3 points out of the 8 I could have earned. Let me re-check how the team awards the points.

Update: No, its 7 points...yay! Will do better these remaining 6 days of the challenge.

Another LTGL challenge is no night time eating. You may want to start trying to not eat during the time from after dinner to bedtime. I can't think of any other "don't do" challenges.

I made a conscious decision/effort to walk 500+ steps (outside, around the house, in sunshine). I planned (and followed-through) filling up water bottles when I returned inside. (500 + 500+700 + 700)ml.

Will take bottle with me next trip around the perimeter of my house.
