We all know water is important, it’s the one thing you are told from day one. We are made up of 75% water and 85% of our brains is water. Needless to say water is important! Some say we need 8 cups a day others say we need as much as 15 cups a day. We could debate, I won’t do that though. Bottom line you want water every day and a lot of it. So why not do a Challenge?
Here’s the Challenge drink 12 cups of water a day for 7 days and see the difference in your body and mindset. So that’s about 1 cup an hour. It is a Total of 96 ounces a Day! You can go bigger if you want and do a gallon of water a day, that’s up to you! (A Gallon is 128 ounces)
Rules are as follows…
- Either commit to refilling up a 16 oz Cup and or 16 oz Water Bottle every Two hours, Have multiple 16 oz Cups/Bottles with water pre filled (you would need 6 total) or have a gallon Jug marked with what needs to be drank by which time.
This is a challenge so push yourself here and get all 12 cups every day! Include the children too in a Little One’s Water Challenge, this is how we do it in our home.
Tips to stay on Track
- As mentioned above include the whole Family, do it together and have a celebration planed at the end. Something for everyone to look forward to. (Little One’s Water Challenge)
- Mark your cup or water bottle with times to finish by. For example, If you start at 10 am you want half your 16 oz cup/bottle drank by 11 am and the entire cup/bottle empty by Noon.
- Set a reminder on your phone, so it will pop up with DRINK YOUR WATER!
- Add Fruit to your water, Lemons, limes, cherries, berries…Whatever you like.
- Get support at work, have your co-workers join in too!
- Make a commitment to yourself and hold yourself accountable, this is for you!
