5 Day Challenge

Last night I got a text message that said, "Thank you for subscribing to cat facts, we will now send you fun cat facts by the minute."  What in the World!  I thought it was someone I knew just messing with me.  They really weren't kidding when they said by the minute.  The texts kept coming and coming all night.  I don't know anyone who would go through that much effort of texting me for a joke.  I sent them a message back and said, "If I saw a cat in the road I would run over it with my car."  But this did not stop the texts.  Here is one of the messages: "The way you treat kittens in the early stages of it's life will render it's personality traits later in life."  Also the area code is California so I just cannot figure out this mystery.  I think that someone put my number and subscribed to cat facts!  I would much rather be getting dog facts, or anything slightly interesting.  There is nothing interesting about a cat to me.  Is there some new app out that I don't know about that can text people non stop?
Anyways...on with the Challenge!

5 Day Challenge

I'm going to write about one easy thing you could each day to get healthier

Lets start with the most simple

Drink more water!
try to drink 2-3 liters per day
3-3 1/2 is best!
Water does so much for your body and it is so easy just to drink more of it.  You may end up having to pee every half hour all day long, but at least you'll be healthy!
When I am focused I take a gallon jug and fill it up with water the night before.  The next day I keep refilling my water bottle with the gallon water bottle from the fridge and try to drink it all by the end of the day.  I have never completed the gallon challenge yet.  But I am convinced that this week I will do it.
Label your water bottle with permanent marker!
this way when its 2 in the afternoon I know that I should be close to the line in order to reach my goal

Add flavor to your water!
My favorite thing to add to water is cucumbers.  It gives it such a fresh taste.  

hint water: my new favorite flavored water.  There are so many flavors.  

Whether you are wanting to lose weight or not drinking more water is a great way to stay healthy.  It maintains the balance of body fluids in your body.  Water also helps energize your muscles and helps your kidneys.  The list goes on and on.  Some days I wish I could just get an IV of water to my arm because I get really sick of drinking it.  Also I hate going to the bathroom every half hour.  Its super inconvenient.

Come back tomorrow for day 2's challenge, and grab the button if you want to get healthy!

I made so many low calorie delicious drinks a while ago but I lost the recipes I made somewhere.  I am going to try to recreate them this weekend.  They were so good!
