One of my personal health/fitness goals is to start drinking more water.
I preach it all. the. time. to my challengers. I'm all like do as I say, not as I do. And it's driving me nuts.
Since making a physical list of things I want to accomplish in 2015 and creating a PLAN OF ACTION (aka steps to actually do what I want to do), even little goals like drinking more water are more tangible.
Here are my steps to reaching that goal to DRINK MORE WATER:
- Buy a new water bottle.I realize this seems silly to have to mention, but my water bottle just doesn't excite me anymore. It's old and cracked and I feel like I would drink more if I had something prettier. (I'm rolling my eyes with you as I write this.)
- Put a filter on my sink at work.
The water at work hasn't always proven to be the highest quality (this is me being P.C.) and I feel like that has a lot to do with why I don't drink as much as I should throughout the day. Two coworkers put filters on their sinks and they very graciously allow me to fill up as often as I like, but that means I have to leave my classroom, enter their's, potentially interrupt their classroom, and then go back to my own to enjoy my filters, clean, fresh water. Putting one on my own sink would make things a little easier.
- Tracking my intake.
Already I keep up with my portions and food groups thanks to the 21 Day Fix so what's one more little thing to track? (For the record, I no longer physically track my portions because I've been following the nutrition guide long enough to just know, but this won't be a big deal since I have experience.) When I created my 21 Day Fix pocket track sheets for my challengers, I included a space for daily workout and 8 glasses of water so I am going to start tracking it until it comes naturally.
Onto the first (and most important) task, buying a new water bottle...
Which would you choose?
