I am going to do the regular challenge of 64 ozs. I have been struggling a little this week with water.

Good morning, all! I'm going to do something I've never done before (horrors!) with this team and post this MC again. It comes to me that drinking water is THE single best thing we can do in our efforts to lose. So, let's play this one again, choose this Intake week as a 're-do' and it will give those who came on late and those who didn't go as great as they wanted, to do what this Team was designed to do: start over!

Here is the post from last week:

64 or 1/2 in 24!!

Option A is for you to drink 64 ozs. of liquid, preferably water, in 24 hours for 4 out of the 7 days the MC is in effect. The MC will include the usually Monday Start Weight Weigh-In & it will also include logging in daily to post your water intake, just like weve been doing with the fiber Up Challenge this week.

Where does the come in, you ask? Well, Ive read up a lot on liquid intake in preparation for this challenge and it seems that we (humans) should actually be drinking our body weight in ounces on a daily basis for it to do the most good (and for us to drop weight like rocks (yeah!)). That means a 180 pound women should drink 90 ounces of water daily, *ideally*.

So with that in mind, here is Option B of the MC, should you choose to accept it:

You may up the challenge for yourself and win a Gold Crown Award by declaring that you will intake your body weight in ounces at least 4 days out of the 7 days this MC is in effect.

Declarations must be made by the end of the day Wed, but may be made as early as the day this is posted; simply post that you will do either the 64 or in 24 hours as your personal MC and we will be off and rolling!

I hope that each of you will share your tips & tricks for getting the water in this week with your teammates. Mine is to add a Lipton Green Tea To Go to each bottle of 24 oz water that I drinkand to keep it on me at all times. Here are more tips:

Drink 1 to 2 glasses of water as soon as you get up in the morning. You have been asleep for 6 to 10 hours, and that's a long time to go without any liquids. (This often helps people overcome their addictions to caffeine, as rehydrating the body and brain lead to clearer thinking and better energy.)

Keep a beautiful pitcher of filtered water near your work space so that you are constantly reminded to drink during the day. Fill up the pitcher with the amount of water you want to consume in the day.

Drink a glass of water before exercise.

During exercise, drink about 8 ounces of fluid every 15 to 20 minutes.

Avoid drinks with caffeine or alcohol, which have a dehydrating effect.

Never restrict the amount of water you crave during regular exercise.

Always make fluids a part of your exercise routine.

Bottles, bottles everywhere! Keep bottles of water in your car, at the office, or around your work areas.

To reduce the amount of chlorine in your drinking water if you aren't using a filter, try this simple tip: Allow drinking water to stand at room temperature for an hour or more, which will allow most of the chlorine to evaporate out of the water.

Drink at least one glass of room-temperature water with every meal.

Also, here is a excellent article I hope youll read:

So, think about it and then post your choice (64 or in 24) for this weeks MC and to all of you to participate, good luck and drink up!
