    I've had such a success with my water intake recently! I have this pretty purple water bottle that really encourages me to drink -- it's a straw bottle, and I don't know I find that I drink much more out of straw bottles. Maybe because I can just lean over and sip. Also because I find myself absentmindedly drinking, especially when I'm thinking. It's especially easy because I can drink hands free!

    @FitAndLean_5738, I love your idea of a pretty water to encourage you to drink water, WTG!

    I drink at least 3 a day, :)

    I'll try this for January 20th, 2019 to see changes in my body measurement... to March 17, 2019. I have to take my measurements when I get home late from work tonight. No more chunky-junky food for me for the next four months! I'll see how this goes...it sounds fun and challenging too!

    Thank you!

    Oh no! Is that ... Dasani!? :s:s;)

    I'm just playing around. Although, is anyone else ridiculously passionate about the brand of bottled water they drink?

    @deepwoodslady, You're welcome. When I saw the info on Coffee, I thought of you. Nice fluid drop. Keep it going!

    @FitAndLean_5738, Whatever gets you to drink more water is a good thing. I like using my decorative insulated cups w/straw. I really try not to buy bottled water any more while I'm away from home. I'd rather just take my cup with me if I can. I bought a stainless steel insulated cup in the summer that keeps my water ice cold in the heat for hours. I just drink my refrigerator filtered water. I use a Whirlpool Every Drop filter. Water tastes great.

    @GrandmaJackie, No, you do not have to log your sleep unless you want to. Each of the challenges is meant to build on the next to create personal improvements in our lives. You're welcome! I love coffee. Always looking for the most current info about it.

    @TheresaDietGal, Welcome to the challenge Theresa! Thanks for joining us and good luck to you!

    @Cloverdoll, Congrats! on your new water record

    @akj_25, Nice weight drop!

    WATER CHALLENGE

    Friday 11/30/2018
    32 ounces of plain water
    10 ounces Tish’s Super Charged Parsley Lemon Water
    24 ounces Black Coffee
    10 ounces Bulletproof coffee with coconut oil, butter and salted caramel skinny syrup
    11 ounces of chocolate protein smoothie made with Slimfast protein powder, Six Stars protein mix, 1 tsp of benefiber and 10 ounces of unsweetened Almond Milk.

    Total Liquids. 87 oz.
    Clearly I need more straight water. They say that caffeine is dehydrating. I drink a lot of it in the form of mainly coffees. That is okay as long as I get my water drinks in. Clearly I need to work on this!



    Saturday 12/01/2018
    50 ounces of plain water
    30 ounces of black coffee

    Total Liquids 80 oz.

    I managed to up the plain water during all of my household chaos (new wall-to-wall carpet going in every room]. However, my overall liquids were down because I didn’t drink any of the special drinks I usually try to incorporate.
    *************************************************************************************

    Sunday 12/02/18
    24 ounces of plain water
    50 ounces of black coffee

    Total Liquids 74 oz.

    Away from home for my DGS’s 1st birthday. I do not drink our well water in our area and forgot to take any bottled. I stuck to coffee most of the day and evening (since it’s boiled/heated I trust it more). I will be home today working and will be more able to meet the challenge of drinking more water.
    *************************************************************************************


    Monday 12/03/18
    20 ounces of plain water
    30 NET ounces of black coffee
    17 ounces of zero calorie/zero carb Sparkling ICE flavored water (limited edition flavor: Cranberry Frost)
    7 NET ounces of bulletproof coffee using my recipe & hazelnut skinny syrup


    Total Liquids 74 oz.
    I am going to work harder at getting in more plain water today by carrying around a cup & straw.
    *******************************************************************************************

    Tuesday 12/04/18
    40 ounces of plain water
    30 NET ounces of black coffee


    Total Liquids 70 oz.

    I still need to work on this. So busy with the upcoming whole house carpet install that I am not taking very good care of myself. Feeling dehydrated. My skin feels tight and dry. I even had to take two AZO pills because it felt like bladder issues were coming on. This challenge is a nice reminder that we need to hydrate ALL YEAR LONG. Not just when we sweat or more active in the summer. I will try to make an improvement today in hydration.

    My name is Jenn I have 5 kids (1st one just left for college this year and another one that will be leaving next year). I am 39 and married to an amazing man. I work full time and have very little time to work out. Hopefully once the younger kids 10 and 13 get a little older, I will have more time. Right now I focus on eating right and maybe two to three times a week getting 45 minutes or so of cardio.

    @tiabirdie56 Hi, thanks! I was looking for a new challenge just to do a weekly weigh in and saw you had posted one, so I immediately wanted to join. Love seeing all of your updates on the daily! Hopefully December isn't going to get the best of me.
