This was a horrible start to making changes for me. It wasn't a small change, it was a massive change. I hate the taste of water, and ordinarily wouldn't drink it alone! On the first day I tried to drink nothing but water (and one coffee!). I was most unimpressed and the next day was ready to pack it in. Since I'd committed myself, I didn't want to do that, I settled on drinking 3 glasses of water a day. This I feel I can keep up for the full year.
Adding in the three glasses has been surprisingly easy after that awful first day. It feels like a success every time I finish it and there have been some added benefits:
i) I don't snack as much. It isn't so much that I feel full up, it's that the cravings for chocolate and the like are cut right back.
ii) Much softer, clear skin. It's amazing what a difference a few days can make!
iii) I will spend much less money on fizzy drinks, so saving as well!
What Week 2 Will Bring
I looked up Week 2 the morning of the second week and groaned. If possible this week looks harder. I need to:
Get more zzzzzzs. In other words sleep 7-8 hours a night and starting going to bed at the same time each day to establish a routine!
I maybe acting like a dramalama but OMG this is horrible. I RP so I tend to stay up late into the night and it varies depending on the day or the people around. While I am not in work, I am going to start by getting the 7-8 hours sleep a night. When I get back into work I can see about a routine with maybe a sacrifice on the hours of sleep I get. There is no way I am going to start going to bed before midnight if I work!
Next update shall be next Wednesday!
