Well the water challenge continues and I have met my challenge every day so far...
But it has not been easy.
I have tried to figure out why I have such a hatred of water and I have come to this conclusion:
water is bland... it does nothing for my taste buds
my taste buds have been use to the tingle of tiny bubbles from Pepsi or Coke.
my taste buds have been use to the warm bitterness of coffee loaded with flavored coffee creamers
my taste buds have been use to ice cold milk with chocolate syrup
So when I decided to do the water challenge my taste buds said
..you must be kidding
Since my taste buds have gone on strike when it comes to drinking water, it was not an easy transition from the things I love to drink to the water I hate to drink
The first thing I did was to take a look at the glasses I was using to drink my water.
I got technical. I found out what a glass of water was and I went straight to the measuring cup. I am going to drink 8 glasses of water..no more and no less.
On my first day of my challenge, I measured out 8 glasses of water and put them on my desk. It took me close to 10 hours to finish those 8 glasses of water. I found that the visual aspect of 8 glasses of water was to much for me and my striking taste buds.
The second day of my water challenge I put all 8 glasses of water in one container and decided to sip my way to my challenge.
Again this was to much for me. When I picked up the container to drink the water, it felt like I was drinking from a horse trough. The more I sipped on my straw it seemed like I was not making any progress.
The third day of my challenge I decided to go down the middle. Instead of looking at 8 individual glassed or one big jug, I divided my water into 4 glasses.
Ahh the happy medium. When I complete one of the glasses of water, I have already drank my two glasses of water and my taste buds are adjusting.
