I don't make resolutions. I know that I never finish what I start so making resolutions for the New Year is a pointless endeavor.
Instead I took on a much larger task...I bought a book. This book gives me a new healthy habit to try each week for a year. Supposedly, I will become a magical and wonderful human being by following each of these habits. I figured I could concentrate on one at a time and hopefully one or two would stick out of 52.
Week one's change was to drink more water. I barely drink water at all. I'll drink it while at the gym...but most of the time I count coffee and sweet iced tea as my liquid intakes. I am the equivalent of a sweet ice tea vampire, I need it to live and am willing to kill to have it. (Ok, not really kill. At least I don't think so. Ask me again at the end of this week after I have replaced all of my sweet tea with water.)
I have carried my little water bottle around with me all day. I have constantly sucked down ounce after ounce of water. I am now a human water balloon. My cells are bursting from the overflow of water. Also? I have to go to the bathroom every 20 minutes. I have already decided that sleep is not on the agenda tonight since I will be in the bathroom all night. I just quit drinking my water for the day. I'll let this leak out over the next 12 hours before I start the whole routine tomorrow.
I wonder which week is sponge eating? (You know, to soak up all the water...)
Anyone taking bets yet to see how long I follow this book?
