The First 64

I am on a quest. Changing habits that don't suit me. Trying new things. Preparing for the possibility that the world won't end in 4 1/2 years. They say that a person should drink 8 8oz glasses of water daily to stay hydrated. Especially concidering how hot it's been getting, I figured this would be a good place to start. There were a few obstacles to overcome. How big is an 8oz glass? How many ounces do my glasses hold? How on Earth am I going to drink 64oz of water in a day?! Ah! There is the key. 64oz. I was looking at the mondo bottle of soda I was drinking and it's 33oz. So, two of those filled with water a day would give me 66oz. A little more than 64, but that just means if I don't completely finish the 2nd one then no big deal. Also, a bottle with a cap on it is far easier to carry around than a cup. And if I freeze one I can take it in the car and not have to worry about hot water.

So, yesterday I drank my first 64oz of water in a day. I don't think I feel any different yet. The heat didn't quite get to me as bad, I guess. I'm definitely peeing more. O.o Ah, but change takes time. I was pleasantly surprized that drinking that much water wasn't as much of a struggle as I expected. Just a few sips here and there and some chugs when I got really thirsty. It's still early and I'm almost through with my first bottle for today. Heh-heh. Not too shabby.

There's a good chance you can look forward to updates like this in the future. We'll call it "Lizzy's Quest" series. Perhaps I can incorperate it into my comic pic series which I haven't updated in forever. ^_^
