3 Litres of Water.

    Hello! I hope Week 1 has been successful for all :).

    In doing my weekly review, I finally committed and started drinking 3 litres of water daily. I only started 3 litres this past Monday. I started the whole habit at the beginning of December but it wasn’t 3L because I couldn’t figure out how to make this happen – the best water bottle for me and filling up my bottles while I am on the go and out of the house all day. In December, I started with the Starbucks tumbler (the large one) which is under 1 L…I would have 3 of those for the day, which I know isn’t exactly 3L. I carried my 980 ml (roughly) water bottle to work full of water and would fill up the Starbucks tumbler when I was finished, then fill it up again when I got home. Now, I have a STANLEY tumbler that holds 1.18 litres – I just needed a water bottle I liked that held 1 L, then I knew I only needed 2 L left, but it had to be with a straw because I need a straw.

    Since we all as a collective started on Monday and I couldn’t with workouts because I was battling a head cold from my toddler son, I figured I would maintain the water healthy habit from the over indulgence of drinks and foods over the holiday season. With the Stanley, I fill it up from home and fill up my 980 ml other water bottle (Swell bottle), and when the 1.18 litre Stanley is finished, I dump the water from my other water bottle into the Stanley. Then when I get home I fill up the Stanley again. So, I finish 1.18 litres by 11am, 2 litres by 2pm, and the last litre while at home playing with my son by 7pm (this has been my trend all week this week, that I hope to maintain.) Keep in mind, I do have about 1 full glass of hot lemon water with Himalayan salt first thing in the morning before I start drinking out of my Stanley.

    My major question is, because I am so new to ALL this water intake – doing 3L on Saturdays and Sundays may be challenging because I am out and about and can’t always predict to know where and when I will see a toilet. Whereas, Mon-Fri, it is predictable that my two dominant spaces being my home and work have toilets, plus my son’s indoor soccer venue. Question for @Lyzabeth is, can I do 3L Mon – Fri and then 1.5 or 2L on the weekends if I find the weekends challenging? Is this an acceptable alternative if I need to adjust due to lifestyle?

    I love that you started when you were ready and have a plan. That’s how you do it!

    I like the 3L mon-fri, and 2L on the weekends when you’re not working out. It gives you a system to stick to that works in your life. I love that you found water bottles that you like. I think that’s important as it’s part of your routine or ceremony. If you enjoy it and like your tools, it helps you stick to it. Let us know how it goes. xo
