52 Small Changes from The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans started a new group at their community, The Hood. I’m so excited about this challenge as I am a horrible goal keeper for myself and I think that this will give me a good start. There is a book called “52 Small Changes: One Year to a Happier, Healthier You” and as a group we are going to go through and make small changes in our lives! These changes involve getting enough sleep, drinking enough water, remembering to breath and exercise, etc.
“The 52 Small Changed Program is designed to encourage small, yet meaningful, changes that will ultimately lead to the big change of living a happier, healthier lifestyle. The idea is simple: make one small change per week for 52 weeks and at the end of the year, you’ll be healthier and happier.” If you want to get on board with this challenge go here for details (there is a giveaway for the book as well). I know that I would love to win the book at the end of the week. If not, I am planning on uploading it to my Kindle.
Starting today with Week 1
This week our small change and challenge is to simply drink water. I love this change because I know drinking the proper amount of water is a great way to drop a few pounds right away. If you are dehydrated, your body will retain water. If you are hydrated, your body will release the retained water. Plus, you’ll feel better and look better. When I don’t drink my water I feel it immediately the next day. I get constipated and my skin starts to look rough and sometimes break-out. If you know me, that is a rare thing for me. Stay hydrated people!
The most popular and easy way of figuring how much you should drink is to take your weight and divide it by 2. That’s the minimum! If you’re exercising, drinking Cosmos, Beer, tea, soda, etc… stop! This is about Water, so get on it. Water is the very best think that you could ever give your body. So this week, let’s drink our water! 🙂
