Eight glasses a day

water-glass_1You might remember that I discovered a new love exactly one summer ago. No, it wasn’t a man. It was kickboxing.

One of my single mom friends had been pleading with me to try a class at the gym. I wasn’t so sure. I’m not exactly what you’d call coordinated. But after getting lost in a handful of aerobic kickboxing classes (I’d turn left when everyone turned right), I’m hooked. I even spin on Thursdays now, too.

I never thought I’d say this, but I love working out!

There’s just one little challenge, especially with our hot California summer in full swing now: hydration.

Yes, I drink water during class, but certainly not enough. I try to drink water during the day, too, but often forget. By bedtime, I’m parched.

That’s why I’ve signed up for the Water Way Challenge.

The Waterway what??–

The challenge is to drink eight glasses of water a day. Why

“The effects of even a two to five percent loss of water can lead to dry, damaged and wrinkled skin, not to mention headaches, fatigue and impaired physical performance,” according to German dermatologist Dr. Joachim Fluhr.

Impaired physical performance? I assume he’s talking about the gym here, and not… Well, you know.

Seriously, I’d love to know: How much water do you drink every day?

To help encourage discussion about hydration, I will be offering a fun giveaway of $50 to one lucky reader each day that I post about this challenge (four opportunities in all).


To enter this giveaway, please leave a comment by 07/1 (Wednesday) at 8PM EST and tell me: how many glasses of water you are drinking a day?

Moreover, you can also have a chance to win a $250 Visa gift card in this chit chat about hydration here.

(Please note that this post has been sponsored by Crystal Light. I am working with this company to share this message about hydration and giving others access to clean water through this sponsorship.)

I don’t drink enough water, right now I am drinking about 2-3 glasses a day.
