A Challenge for you: Drink Only Water

I have a challenge for you – and this challenge is based on two things….

1) the notion that this is something I consider hard to do (therefore, I am attempting to tackle a flaw)

2) we like to talk about skin health around these parts and this challenge?  well…. it would be really good for your skin – among other things.

Now…. before I let you in on the specifics, I want to explain the origin of this challenge.    As challenges often do, this one has its origins in a dare.  A dare from my husband.  In the form of a sentence that began something like this, “I bet you can’t…..”  And you know….  that naturally means I will TRY to do whatever it is this man is certain I can’t do, correct?  I don’t know if that is how your DNA operates, but it is how mine does…  especially in relation to my husband.  Unfortunately, I think he knows this.

I do something that makes my husband crazy.  I drink soda.  Yes, I know it is bad for me. My consumption ebbs and flows.  Some weeks, I barely have any and other weeks, it is all I drink.  He?  Only drinks water.  In a social setting, he may have a glass of wine of a beer… but day to day?  Only water.  No coffee or tea.  No Gatorade.  No ice tea.  And no soda.

So he dared me.  Drink only water for a whole week.  And drink a lot of it.

Heaven knows it would be good for me.  Do you need a refresher on the benefits?

*healthy, brighter, hydrated skin

*Improves skin tone

*controls appetite

*prevents dehydration

*helps digestion

*fewer cramps

*reduces fatigue

*decrease headaches

Speaking of headaches, I wanted to be prepared as I accepted this challenge – knowing full well, I could suffer caffeine- withdrawal headaches. So, if you, like me, are substituting water for a traditional glass of caffeine, here are a few tips for you:

  1. If you can, nap through it
  2. Take an over the counter: Tylenol or Ibuprofen
  3. Drink lots of water!
  4. Peppermint (often used in the form of peppermint tea)

You have been told, at least as many times a  as I have that you should be drinking at eight 8 ounce glasses of water a day.  So, are you in?  Substituting ALL of the liquids in your diet for water? One week and one week only – you can do it. And this is just for your day to day drinking.  (It doesn’t include going out  a date with your spouse on a Friday night – I will give you a pass for that!)

I’m all ready to go.  Make sure to come back here to keep me updated!
