I am inviting all ladies who would like to try this challenge to post here daily (whether or not they achieved the goal)! Would you like to participate in this? There are many health benefits to increasing daily water intake!

The link for the challenge is below:

Some guidelines to "what counts" for water intake, can be found in this dental article:


"Let's start with our 8 glasses, assuming we really are drinking 8 glasses to start with and subtract if we,

Drink coffee? Subtract one cup of water for every cup of coffee

Drink tea other than herbal? Subtract 1/2 cup of water for every cup of tea.

Drink soda with caffeine (this includes both diet and regular)? Subtract a cup of water for every 10-12 ounces of soda.

Exercised for one hour? Subtract at least 2 cups of water for even moderate/light exercise."


This second article is also helpful:

Who would like to join me in this challenge?

Most important of all....don't forget the words of Jesus in John 4:13:

"Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life."
