I enjoy a big, tall, glass of delicious, soothing...Diet Coke! You thought I was going to say Water, huh! Haha! No, water is tricky for me. I don't know that I have ever been truly hydrated! YES, it's true. I love me some soda, juice, coffee...hell, I'll even take a Shirley Temple over a glass of water.
Don't get me wrong, I don't hate water. I just don't prefer it to my other thirst quenching options. So today, I hydrate H2O style. That's right, I will be drinking water, like it's going out of style. Why is this a challenge you ask? Well, let me explain...
First of all, water is healing and benefits your body in so many ways. Check out this post from last summer. Second, it is taken for granted. Did you know that every 20 seconds a child dies from water-related illnesses. However, thanks to a wonderful organization, water.org, you can help these children! Lastly, after a week of putting your body through several types of exercises, we thought this week we would work on that outer confidence! Thus this week's challenges are all about treating your body to some well deserved love!
So today, show thanks for the clean drinking water you have by treating your body to some of it and donating to water.org!
There is nothing I love more than letting loose and dancing! Woo, woo! It's so liberating AND you burn calories! So throw yourself a little dance party and lose some inches. Take a picture of your BEST dance move and tag it with #LMLP. Here are some fun links about dancing your ass off, literally!
So far this month, we have taken time to reflect and evaluate the things that make us happy. We have taken time to meditate, time to enjoy the fresh air and even treated ourselves to something special. We're not done working on our inner strength, but we are going to switch gears for a little bit and focus on our physical strength.
For today's challenge we will be getting that heart pumping and sweat dripping! Go for a walk, run or jog. I would encourage you to complete this challenge outdoors, but if a treadmill at the gym works better for you, than do it!
Take a picture of your workout shoes and tag them #LMLP. Here are some great links to check out...
