Water Challenge: A month later


A month ago, Ashley and I partaked in a water challenge.  It was truly what they say it is, a challenge.  Here we are a month later and here are my takes on this water challenge and what I thought of it.

For about a week and a half, it was relatively easy for me to drink water.  But for some reason it was getting more and more difficult to find the time to drink that much water.  I don’t know if it is because I was just getting lazy, if my children are the reason why I stopped drinking water as much, or if I just got sick of the flavor of the bland water.

But the first week and a half I drank between four to six jugs of water a day!  Then it slowly progressed to two or three a day and then went to just one and a half a day!  I started adding a bit of lemon juice in my jug to start getting back into drinking water again.

I also stopped wearing the belly band to help me lose weight.  This month has just been a very slow start for me as I don’t find myself that motivated to wear the belly band as much and I don’t find myself motivated to drink a bunch of water.  But in August, I will partake the challenge again once my kids are in school full time and I won’t be as distracted with my daughter talking my ear off.

I guess between the lack of motivation and the lack of eating healthy, I didn’t really lose a lot of weight.  I lost only one pound but I did lose two inches around my waist.  Another perk is that my boobs did get bigger and fuller.  Not sure how that happened.

There’s my feedback on the water challenge a month later!

Water Challenge – Ashley Day 1-5

Jenna and I are in the midst of a 30 day water challenge to drink 64 oz of water daily.

Similar to Jenna the first day or two was relatively easy for me and I even went over my amount a bit.

Now on day 6 I am finding it a bit harder. 

3 pm and I am not even finished my second mug ( 40 oz) yet and yesterday on day 5 I only drank 40 ounces total of water.

Even after only a couple days I feel less wanting snack type foods and less bloated . I did notice when I didn’t drink the water on day 5 I felt more head ache ish but that could be weather related or diet related, as I am also making healthy changes in that aspect.

Looking forward to seeing and sharing with you, more changes and benefits of proper hydration and healthier eating.

I have decided to partake in a challenge with Ashley.  It is the water challenge and the goal is to drink 64 oz. of water a day.  Seems easy enough, yes?  Especially with the hot weather quickly approaching.

Well, I started this challenge on June 1.  I am on day four right now.  It was actually easy the first three days.  The first day I drank four mugs of water, the second day I drank three, the third and fourth day I drank five jugs of water.  My jug is actually 31.2 oz but with ice and my jug isn’t filled to the top.

This challenge has been pretty easy for me.  I am looking forward to weighing and measuring myself after a week.  I hope to see a difference.  I am not going to get my hopes up that I have lost a lot of weight.

Oh, another thing, aside from the water challenge.. I have also started wearing this belly band Sure Cut Fitness to help me lose some inches around my belly as well.  I look forward to see some changes.
