Week 1 - My Water Challenge
As promised, I would be posting weekly about the happenings when I drink at least 1.5 liters of water a day.
7 days have already passed and what have I notice? Hmm.. First of all, I have to be honest that I really wasn't 'spot on' on my target, because of the behemoth of work under pressure, lack of staff resulting in many things to do and the fact that I really haven't bought a water bottle to calibrate my water intake.
For days 1 to 3, I was doing very well with reaching my mark, and yes, I have peed a lot - maybe 5 or 6 times. It's fortunate though that the trip to the toilet is just a few steps away in my workplace so it's not an issue to me. In the morning, my urine would be kind of yellowish, but as the day goes by, it becomes clearer and transparent as I continue to drink water.
Another thing I've noticed is that my hair's more happy - I mean it's lighter and shinier - and that makes me happy, too. As for my ill-forgotten face, I still have so many blotches and pimple scars from my battle with stress, lack of sleep and water, and skipped meals because of work. But I do notice a slight difference - my face seems more relaxed and looks well hydrated.
Unfortunately, I lost track on Days 4 and 6. It's because when I'm running on other errands, trips to the toilet can be a bit challenging, so I tend to lessen my water intake to avoid the dreadful thoughts in my head.
Right now, there's a quite a few outbreak of pimples on my face, but just 2 of them. I'm trying to manage these two while keeping on drinking water until I reach my target.
Maybe for week 2, I might increase my intake to about 2 liters to see if there are more changes happening. Good luck to me!
