Hi friends! I posted last week about the 5-day water challenge, so now I want to tell you how it went!
I met my goal of drinking at least 64 ounces each day (usually even more than 96 ounces). I took advantage of my 32-ounce mason jar bottle that I keep at work to help me keep track of what I was drinking 🙂
Having a group on Facebook with other members participating in the challenge was fun – Shannon even made it into a little bit of a competition. We were able to motivate each other but also compete for points by doing certain things each day like post a “Water Challenge Selfie” or an inspiring or informational image/article. Shannon kept a Pinterest board of all our images and articles that we shared, too.

I felt really great, besides having to pee a lot. I had more energy (I didn’t even drink coffee most days!) and my skin feels really soft and hydrated, which is amazing with this dry winter air. I also enjoyed learning about all of the benefits drinking water has. Check these out:
Here’s a couple of my water selfies from the challenge:
All in all, I think it was a great exercise that helped me pay more attention to how much water I drink, and I plan to continue keeping up with my daily water intake goals! I’ve enjoyed adding things into my water, too. Check out this concoction I made tonight:
Have you ever done a health or fitness challenge? Do you drink enough water in the day?
