So I accepted the water challenge. I started the water challenge. I, well, I am not beating this challenge of water..YET! The Water Challenge is a 7 day to 30 day (or longer) challenge to get us to drink a gallon of water per day. It’s not necessary to actually drink an entire gallon, as long as you drink half of your weight in ounces. I intend to drink a gallon. I’m a big girl so that’s a lot of ounces.
I decided I wouldn’t carry an entire gallon with me all day. That won’t work with me and my wheelchair so, after some elementary school math I figured I’d just have to fill up my 16oz bottle 8x a day. I bought a 99 cent gallon of water and filled mine and my boyfriend’s bottle. Yeah, I challenged him too. I’m doing this solo! My bottle is infused with cucumbers. Yummy. Next time will be mint. Anyway, I also decided to start off a little slower than most. Instead of an entire gallon in one day, I’d give my body a chance to acclimate to the change. So 1/2 a gallon of water should be enough. I barely made a dent in my second 16oz refill. It’s my stomach. I don’t eat much and fill up very quickly. I also drank a kale smoothie for lunch. I was stuffed! I don’t even remember dinner. End day 1. Day 2 will be much more successful.
