I’m following along with the 12 Months to a Healthier You Challenge at Money Saving Mom. I started the challenge in January to help keep me motivated to lose weight and help me establish some good healthy habits too.
How the Challenge Works
Each month of the challenge will have an area to focus on, to help improve your health and mine. This is the last week of the month and the last week for working on increasing my water intake.
By focusing on one area each month, it should give us time to really get it set as a habit. So it won’t end up being something we just do for one month. I’m hoping I will be able to continue the improvements for a long time.
March’s Focus Area
This month’s focus is on drinking more water. I have been trying to increase my water intake a little each month since January. I’m was up to 5 glasses a day at the end of February, so for March my goal will be 6 glasses of water a day.
I thought about trying to bump the goal up more, but I know it’s hard for me to sometimes fit in 5 glasses. So, I thought I would just increase on more glass a day, to play it safe. 🙂
My Progress for this week
This week I didn’t make my goal of 6 glasses of water each day. I really thought this month would be an easy month for me to meet my goal each week. Boy, was I wrong. I did get 5 glasses of water in each day, so I was really close to my goal.
I think I need to start making a point to drink a couple cups of water in the morning and then a couple cups around lunchtime too. I seem to get busy during the day and forget to drink my water. I’ll be continuing to work on getting more water in next month too.
Next month’s focus area will change to Reducing Sugar Intake. I know that one will be a challenge for me, I do love my sweets.
How did you do? Did you meet your goal for your water intake?
