Water Challenge: Day 1 recap

Hey everyone!

Well, so far I've done very well. Yesterday I went from barely getting a glass of water a day, to getting almost 64 oz. I was just about 3 oz. shy is all. No diet soda, even though we had some in the house. :) Yay me!

Today I plan to carry my water bottle with me as we run errands so I won't be tempted to go through the drive through and get the gallon sized diet soda I usually get. While I find I'm not actually craving it that bad, like I thought I would, I do know old habits die hard. Getting a diet soda at certain places is definitely a habit for me. I catch myself instinctively heading for the soda machine when we are in Wal-Mart. Why? Just something I've always done. I walk around and shop with a diet coke in my hands. So my battle will be breaking routines as well.

Hope you are all doing good as well. Feel free to check in and let me know how it's going.

On an off-topic note: I've found some really great stuff lately that I'd love to share with you. Hope to get to that later today.

I gave up soda for ice tea...every day I make a fresh brewed pitcher of decaf ice tea, without any sweetner, and drink almost all of it in one day. Tea has good stuff in it and I never feel soda-deprived. Now I almost always order ice tea when I go out instead of diet soda. Try it.

Thanks for the idea! I may have to try that as well. But I try to avoid caffeine as well so I don't drink a whole lot of tea unless it's decaf.
