May Water Challenge, Keeping it Real


If you follow the studio on social media, you know I sentenced myself to a water challenge in May.

I use the word sentenced because water & I do not mix.  I hate it.  I dread it.  I know it's good for me.  I watch you all walk into the studio protectively clutching your beautiful water bottles.  I see you sipping between sets and honestly wonder whether you're thirsty, stalling, or just in the habit?  Either way, it's a good habit & I wish I were in it.

So I committed to a seemingly simple 32oz a day for 31 days.  I'm proud (yes, that's sad) to say I did it.  But after paying ferocious attention to the past 992 ounces, I'm relieved to say I'm now stopping & was downright giddy to not fill those bottles this morning.

I do plan to continue with 32oz of liquids (no, not just wine).  Tea, milk, juice...  But I'll leave the good ole H2O to all of you & your new S'well Summer Challenge bottles.  Carry them proudly.
