LAST DAY OF MY #WATERCHALLENGE! Finally, geesh! I closed out my #waterchallenge with 3 bottles of water today. Of course you’re thinking, “Dang, the last day and you still couldn’t make it to 4.” I know, I know. But I honestly couldn’t. Even though I have been doing this for a month, I still struggle to make it to 4 bottles of water a day… which it what makes it a challenge. When I started this #waterchallenge, I chose the number 4 not only to be able to consume what I believed to be my daily intake of water, but also because I knew that 4 bottles of water would be hard for me to drink daily.
I thought about lying each day on my blog to say yeh, I finished 4 bottles of water a day, but that wouldn’t help me or anybody else. By being honest, I revealed that consuming the needed amounts of water daily is very difficult and something that many people, including myself, cannot do. When you really think about all the liquids that we consume daily, how much of it is healthy? We find it easy to drink coffee, juice, sugar filled beverages, and alcohol… all things which do more harm for our bodies than good. But when you think about drinking water, we find it hard to do and have to force ourselves to drink it.
This #waterchallenge has brought to light my strengths and many of my weaknesses. It has also educated me greatly on the importance of water and the numerous benefits that it provides. I may not have been able to drink 4 bottles every day, but this challenge has made me genuinely want to drink more water. I honestly don’t have a strong taste for juice, sodas, or alcoholic drinks and I’m so proud of myself for that.
My goal in this #waterchallenge was not to drink 4 bottles a day for a month and then go back to my old habits of drinking sodas and juices, but to make drinking water a daily habit…better yet a lifestyle. I can happily say that I have achieved my goal!
