30-Day Drink Water Challenge!

Everyone has heard of the benefits of drinking water, including: weight loss, increase in energy, toxin remover, and of course......healthy skin. I for one could certainly use an increase in energy, not to mention glowing skin, so I'm up for the Challenge!

Today makes the 1st day of my personal challenge to drink more water each day, I'm going for four 20-ounce bottles! Here's how it works for me:

1) To save money, I reuse water bottles and label them 1-4 on the caps.

2) I figure out a schedule for drinking them.
1- By end of morning exercise
2 - By lunch time
3-By Supper
4- By the end of the evening I finish off #4
3) I refill for the next day!

Every woman will have to drink what she feels necessary for her. Those who sweat more should drink more. Those who eat foods or drink other drinks with plenty of water could drink less.

STEP up to my challenge! For 30 days, let's see if we can drink (water) to a better health!

Please comment with your commitment for this challenge! It will be soooo much fun, and sooo HEALTHY! Think "glowing skin!"

Hi Melissa! Great idea for a blog! As someone who's about to get her degree in nutrition, I can say: water is good for you! It's great for you! I don't drink anything but water and herb tea these days. I stopped drinking soda and even juice (unless it's really, really fresh-squeezed, otherwise all the vitamins disappear in a jiffy).

Lady Beautiful said...

Thanks Anna!

Any time you want to contribute to this blog you are more than welcome to. How cool would it be to have a real-life nutritionist on this blog!?!

As for juices, I love them, but they are full of sugar! Water is a great choice.

Melissa :D

Mrs. U said...

I am definitely accepting this challenge!!!

While I DO already drink 64 ounces of water a day, I drink TOO much diet coke as well. I am going to up my water intake to 96 ounces a day and less diet coke. :)

Thank you for the challenge!!

Mrs. U

Melissa said...

Thank you, my friend, for accepting this challenge! I like how you altered it to fit YOUR needs, very good! Good luck!

JeniBeans said...

I accept the challenge too. I came across your blog through Mrs. U's blog...which I was directed to from yet ANOTHER blog, LOL...but I drink NO WATER at ALL now, so even just the start could only do good things for me.

I am 34, pregnant with my 5th baby, sue in Oct, and a Dr. Pepper addict. (sigh) I SOOOOoooo need this. Thanks!

Melissa said...

Woo hoo! I'm so excited! You're going to have your 5th baby, how exciting! I'm so happy to have you accepting this challenge! I'm sure your doctor will not be complaining!

Melissa :D

Heather said...

Please do use caution in drinking too much water ladies - there are risks that you might not be aware of! You can literally wash all of the vitamins and minerals that your body is needing for good health out of your system too quickly leaving you malnourished. Please consult your doctor for your water drinking requirements as there is not a 'one size fits all' amount, it is individual. It greatly depends on your fitness level as well.

Please please use caution here - all things IN MODERATION!!! I am a big water drinker myself because of my liver disease, but will never encourage others to overdo their water intake since there have been women who have injured themselves with too much.

Mrs. U said...

Good advice, Heather. I think the general rule for drinking water is to drink half of your weight in ounces. So if I weighed 140 pounds (what a DREAM! LOL!!!), I would drink 70 ounces of water a day.

By the way, Melissa. I have been successful everyday with my water drinking! Thank you for putting this challenge out there- it was just what I needed!! :)

Mrs. U

Lady Beautiful said...


Thank you for your warning to women. That's why I posted that every lady here should drink what she feels necessary for her. I did hear of the woman who drank a lot of water and holding it to win a silly prize and she actually died. That was simply foolish!

Thank you Mrs. U, for the rule of how much to drink. I love though that God makes us all so different and so unique that we each have different needs.

I need to be drinking more water and less other drinks, like teas.

I hope the challenge is working well for others, as I have slipped a few times ;)

I'm completely new to writing a blog but I do write in my diary daily. I'd like to
start a blog so I can share my experience and feelings online.
Please let me know if you have any kind of suggestions or tips for brand new aspiring bloggers.

I had a quick question which I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing. I have had a difficult time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out there. I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints? Cheers!
