    OK - So it's 4pm and I'm about 1/2 way there. I find that the best way for me to get so much water in is: I have this huge 50.7 oz. "Smart Water" bottle. I just refill it with the office's water cooler. But if I can get the whole thing down before I leave work I can get the last 14 oz. in at home with dinner.
    That's totally what I do. We have these big water pitchers for patients in the ER... everyday I grab one, try to fill it twice a day while at work and then get the rest in at home.

        Ok, I must have had about 100oz of water yesterday. I do drink a lot of it, especially when I'm not drinking the soda.

        I FINALLY used my treadmill last night. I did a 30 minute power walk at 4.0 miles an hour. I burned 360 calories, not bad. The treadmill is great. It's the ProForm 350 and it's so sturdy. It also seems a little more compact than others I've used/had, so I really like it alot. It has a built-in fan too - that's a neat feature.

        50 crunches tonight - no problem. I'm babysitting, so once the kid goes to bed, I'll get those in. Let's keep up the good work ladies!!!

            Hooray! I was hoping you would use the treadmill so I could see if you liked it! Glad it was great! So proud of you!

              I LOVE THIS THREAD!!!! Having to post everyday to show that you're keeping up with the challenges is really motivating me to stay on track and stick to everything else (eating better, no diet coke, etc.)

              I also printed out 2 copies of the list of daily challenges. I posted a copy of it on my desk at work and on my fridge at home. Here's the list if anyone else wants to print it out.

                YAY! That's the whole point! I'm so glad it's working! I need to go get that water - I want to try and drink my 64 oz., 50 crunshes, eat right, yoga and work on my freelance work at home... yikes! That's a lot for one day!

                  Thank you!!! I was so proud of me too last night - LOL! I came home with a headache and all I wanted to do was sit down and watch TV. But I made myself get up, get on the treadmill and do a workout. I felt so good afterwards.

                  I believe in you Kash - you can get it all done!!!!


                  BTW, I already finished my 64oz of water for today. I usually go through a 32oz bottle between breakfast and taking my vitamins. Then by lunch, I finish another 32oz bottle. I'm now on my 3rd 32oz bottle of water today. I feel like a fish!!!!

                    Thanks for the printout. That helps. I love this thread. I feel like I am more likely to do these things because I don't want to have to tell you guys I didn't do the challenge. lol.

                    I drank all my water yesterday. I had to pee constantly! I am going to try and continue today as well as cutting out the diet coke. I am going to get a bottle of water right now. I did my 50 crunches on the balance ball this morning.

                    Tomorrow is going to be diffiicult for me. I am working half the day then flying to chicago. I don't know when I will be able to exercise.

                      Why don't you try to do the 30 minutes of exercise tonight instead.
