One week down, 7 to go!
I never realized just how much water I was missing until I started writing it down. It's not that I drink other things, like Diet Coke or tea, all day long. I just don't drink much at all. I really had to make myself drink lots of water and most days I still didn't hit my 8 glasses a day goal. Out of 56 possible points for the mini challenge, I earned 44. On average, I drank about 6 glasses of water a day, which was still way up from my previous 2 or 3!
The toughest part about this week though was giving up sweets. I failed miserably by the way! Three times last week, I had dinner in a social setting which almost always means dessert! I have come to realize that when it isn't in my house or right in front of me, I have no trouble not eating sweets. But, if there is a cookie in my line of vision it is all but impossible for me not to eat it!
This week the Body After Baby mini-challenge is to walk more. 15 minutes of walking or running equals 1 point with a possible 4 points per day. This one is going to be really bad for me because I don't walk or run. (Unless being chased!)
