I'm trying to add one thing each week that makes my life healthier. This weeks goal is water. I know, this isn't rocket science! Everyone knows your supposed to drink at least 8 glass of water a week. But I struggle with this! I got really sick from the water when I was in college, so can't bear the taste of water. I know, it's in my mind, but 20 years later, I still associate a case of cryptosporidium to water!
Like it or not, my goal this week is to drink at least one glass of water before each meal or snack. I hope this will make me healthier because I'm actually drinking water, and I hope that it will curb my hunger. I've read recently that often times we think we are hungry, but are actually thirsty. I've even taking this one step further. If I want a snack that I "shouldn't" have (like late at night before bedtime), I force myself to drink two whole glasses, and if I still want the snack, it's OK for me to have it. I find that I don't eat as much that way.
What about you? Do you drink enough water? Are you committed to drinking more water?
