I’m starting the 30 day water drinking challenge. Occasionally, I need a challenge or goal to get me over a slump with my fitness or workouts. That can be in the form of a diet or a race, like a 5k or half marathon goal. During the month of November 2017, I’m going to do the water drinking challenge and drink 1/2 an ounce per pound of body weight that I have, which is currently about 80 ounces per day. I have made it through the first few days. Initially, I thought this would be super easy because I had done it before. However, after the first day, my skin started breaking out! Yikes! This may be my body expelling the toxins and excess sugar that I consumed in the form of Halloween candy. I’m almost positive that better skin is on its way!
In order to stick with my goal, I treated myself to a 64 ounce water bottle to carry around and know where I was with my water drinking for that day. I must admit, I’m not a fan of carrying around a huge water bottle. The sixty four ounce bottle is not large enough for the whole amount that I’m supposed to drink each day, however, I take a 16 ounce water bottle to work and drink that. It is much easier to handle. Also, I did notice that the 64 ounce bottle leaks when you drop it, so I’m not sure if I’m a fan of my new bottle. Time will tell.
My pee is getting very light. This means that I’m consuming a good bit of water. In order not to eliminate all of my electrolytes, I’m making sure that I consume plenty of sea salt with my food and I have an additional pinch of sea salt before my first dose of water each day.
