Okay -- be honest. What was your first thought when you woke up this morning and remembered about our challenge? My first thought was, "Ugh! It looks so cold outside."
While I'm at my brother's home, I've decided that if exercise is going to happen it has to happen in the morning before the day gets crazy. When I left for my walk it was 42 but felt like 35 with the wind. On the bright side, I walked a lot faster than I usually do.
I've been drinking more water the past few days and have learned that I better be near a bathroom about 30 minutes later or I'll be sorry. Then I made the mistake of drinking 16oz before I left on my walk. If the wind didn't make me walk faster, the water definitely did. Any tips from you regular water drinkers? Does your body eventually get better at using the extra water rather than just flowing right through you? :)
I think sweets will be the hardest part of the challenge for me. I tend to be an all-or-nothing person. When I eat sweets, I can't seem to stop at just one. So knowing that I can enjoy 3 makes me a little nervous. Will I be able to stop? Should I just ban them all together? Will that only make it worse? Which category will be your greatest challenge?
Here's hoping for a great first day...with many more to come! Even as the cold wind was blowing this morning, the thought that I wasn't alone made it bearable.
