Result #15: This year I successfully drank over 23,360 ounces of water and you'll never guess what happened next...

#15 Drink more water.

Date: 1-15-2014

Due Date: 1-15-2015

Resolution: It's an oldie but a goodie. I've already started but I need to get back to drinking more water and will drink the traditional 8, 8 ounce glasses of water a day for at least one year.

I used to be real good at drinking water when I worked in copy centers. Between constantly refilling my water bottle, having to go to the bathroom, and smoke breaks I barely worked at all... Wait why do I dread having a day job again?

Strategy:  Drink out of a 32 ounce water bottle, that way it seems like it's only two drinks and not eight. The same reason I drink 40oz's and say I only had a couple beers.

Drink Count:

Quick Update: One week down and I've been doing good. Not only am I drinking the 8 8 ounces of water a day but other than booze I've managed to get by drinking nothing but water. Water and booze that's all you need.

Beverage-wise that is.

The Conclusion:

Date: 1-15-2015

This year I successfully drank over 23,360 ounces of water and you'll never guess what happened next...

I felt nice and hydrated.

That's pretty much it.

I didn't notice any thing like extra weight loss, healthier skin or any of the other promises that come with drinking this much water but who's to say what condition I'd be in if I didn't.

I've always been pretty good at drinking water. As a daily drunk, I learned early on how important h2o is to a functional alcoholic. Maybe the two liquids I live off of have just balanced each other out.
