    Challenge #1 - SLEEP
    In our adult life, it's not really reasonable to think you will always get 8 hrs of sleep nightly. I created this challenge, to hopefully make us all aware of the causes that rob us of sleep and correct them if possible. Our lives have conditioned us to function on way less sleep than necessary.


    Tonight is the last night for the sleep challenge. Tomorrow when you wake up begins Challenge #2 - WATER

    *****CHALLENGES*****
    **Each challenge will be for 7 days**
    **Each challenge will help us establish and reinforce good healthy habits**
    **Take your measurements on day 1 of the first challenge. No need to post them. They are for body measurement comparisons throughout and at the end of the challenge. January 20, 2019 and March 17, 2019 - We should notice some significant changes.

    💦💦💦💦💦💦💦 🤳 💦💦💦💦💦💦💦

    CHALLENGE #2 / Drink Water 💦 Are you drinking enough? True, all fluids count towards hydration. Green tea, coffee, water filled vegetables and fruits do also. Pure water though 💦🚰 is necessary everyday. Sparkling water and essence water without sweetener can be counted too. Track your consumption of pure water daily in your food diary. Post on this thread your daily totals at the end of the week. Let us know how you're doing.

    •Tips ~ Drinking room temperature water is said to be best for digestion and helps flush fat.
    ~Drinking cold water is a great thirst quencher and especially refreshing after a workout for some people.
    ~Use a straw, you may drink more.
    ~ Feeling cold? Drink your water slightly warmed or add lemon and sip it hot.
    ~Keep track easily by putting your daily drinking water in a large container.
    ~Use rubber bands on your wrist or on your permanent cup to keep track of how many cups you drink
    ~Drinking 16.9 oz bottles water? Pocket the caps and count them at the end of the day.
    ~Before coffee, tea and food, get a jump start each day with 16ozs of water.
    ~If you are usually not mindful of your hydration and thirst cues, drink some water every hour
    ~Your urine color is the key to your hydration level. Dark? Drink more. Straw colored? You're at the right level. Colorless? You're drinking too much. Food coloring yellow? Thats your B complex vitamin supplement.😄
    ~Learn your thirst cues and don't ignore them.

    Great idea to put your challenge results in a spoiler Jackie, @GrandmaJackie. I think I'll do the same.
    I DO love spoilers😆

    @MadisonMolly2017, You're so welcome. Glad you are enjoying it! I like your tips.

    @tiabirdie56

    For water challenge:
    * Ideal time for water is 1-2 hours after eating because digestion is at peak then!
    * Water is the medium for the reactions that get the nutrients from food, etc. crucial!
    * It’s best to sip water throughout the day as our bodies don’t store it for later use.

    Thanks for this group!

    More about water: The general recommendation is to drink half your body weight in pounds in ounces a day. So if you weigh 160 pounds, drink 80 ounces (2.4L) of water a day!

    My personal goal is 3L a day

    My water consumption varies from day to day.

    My water consumption varies from day to day.

    Same here. 3L is more of a general goal. On days I run I tend to drink more. On days when I get out of bed at 4pm (#CollegeLife :D ) I tend to drink less.

    Hi everyone! I just started actively using MFP on the 17th so I hope it's alright I'm starting late. *And if anyone is looking for friends, let me know! I have 1 so far. lol

    Challenge Starting Weight ~ 311.8 (Nov. 29)

    (I've been weighing daily which I know is not a good idea so I thought I'd make myself a compromise and do it only twice a week- Mon & Fri)
    *I'll add the dates in each month to keep my comment from being so long. I tend to be windy anyways so I'm sure it will be long, no need to make it longer. lol

    SW ~ 344.4
    CSW ~ 311.8
    CGW ~ 281

    November~ goal: 311.4
    11/30 F: 311.2 ha, not a bad guess.

    Totals are: <0.6 lbs> for the challenge
    <11.6 lbs> since starting MFP
    <33.2 lbs> since I began! *\o/*

    I didn't quite start this challenge early enough to participate in the sleep bit. Is that to be continued and add in the water this week? Or just the water?

    Welcome to the challenge @Cloverdoll! Nice weight drop so far! The sleep CHALLENGE ended last night. That doesn't mean we stop trying for the most hours and best restorative sleep we can get. So if you would like to do the sleep challenge, by all means go for it! Try to end your water consumption an hour before bedtime though so you aren't breaking your rest too often through the night for potty time.

    @Tracie_Lord, Welcome to the challenge Tracie! You steam rolled your vacation gain! Congrats!
