I will drink half my weight for four days! I am at 142 lbs now, so that should be 71 oz, right?

Had no wifi for a long time so couldn't post until now.

Good luck to you all. Would like to join you but am on fluid restriction for medical reasons.

I am reaching back in time for a water challenge that Lynn did several years back.


64 or 1/2 in 24

Here we go again! This is our 1st Intake Mini-Challenge (MC) of the 6 months series we have in rotation. Next week we'll repeat an Intake MC, then we'll have an Exercise MC, and then a Self-Esteem MC the following week. ;) This is one of my all time favorites! Let's drink up!

Option A is for you to drink 64 ozs. of liquid, preferably water, in 24 hours for 4 out of the 7 days the MC is in effect. The MC will include the usually Monday Start Weight Weigh-In & it will also include logging in daily to post your water intake, just like we’ve been doing with the fiber Up Challenge this week.

Where does the ½ come in, you ask? Well, I’ve read up a lot on liquid intake in preparation for this challenge and it seems that we (humans) should actually be drinking ½ our body weight in ounces on a daily basis for it to do the most good (and for us to drop weight like rocks (yeah!)). That means a 180 pound women should drink 90 ounces of water daily, *ideally*.

So with that in mind, here is “Option B” of the MC, should you choose to accept it:

You may “up the challenge” for yourself and win a Gold Crown Award by declaring that you will intake ½ your body weight in ounces at least 4 days out of the 7 days this MC is in effect.

Declarations must be made by the end of the day Wed, but may be made as early as the day this is posted; simply post that you will do either the 64 or ½ in 24 hours as your personal MC and we will be off and rolling!

I hope that each of you will share your tips & tricks for getting the water ‘in’ this week with your teammates. Mine is to add a Lipton Green Tea To Go to each bottle of 24 oz water that I drink…and to keep it on me at all times. Here are more tips:

• Drink 1 to 2 glasses of water as soon as you get up in the morning. You have been asleep for 6 to 10 hours, and that's a long time to go without any liquids. (This often helps people overcome their addictions to caffeine, as rehydrating the body and brain lead to clearer thinking and better energy.)

• Keep a beautiful pitcher of filtered water near your work space so that you are constantly reminded to drink during the day. Fill up the pitcher with the amount of water you want to consume in the day.

• Drink a glass of water before exercise.

• During exercise, drink about 8 ounces of fluid every 15 to 20 minutes.

• Avoid drinks with caffeine or alcohol, which have a dehydrating effect.

• Never restrict the amount of water you crave during regular exercise.

• Always make fluids a part of your exercise routine.

• Bottles, bottles everywhere! Keep bottles of water in your car, at the office, or around your work areas.

• To reduce the amount of chlorine in your drinking water if you aren't using a filter, try this simple tip: Allow drinking water to stand at room temperature for an hour or more, which will allow most of the chlorine to evaporate out of the water.

• Drink at least one glass of room-temperature water with every meal.

Also, here is a excellent article I hope you’ll read: www.inch-aweigh.com/water.html

So, think about it and then post your choice (64 or ½ in 24) for this weeks’ MC and to all of you to participate, good luck and drink up!

emoticon For the Golden Crown Award, do 5 out of 7 days of the Challenge!
