Washing Winter Away

Try-It With-Me Tuesday, an interactive weekly time and place to foster connections that challenge and encourage the process to become a well-rounded person.

March in MinnesotaMarch in Minnesota brings spring a little bit at a time. Our water comes in the form of snow showers. Despite what it looks like outside, I have been able to open my windows once or twice and let some spring air blow in. The smell of spring (and the spring cleaning) rejuvenated our house and me.

With all this renewal of nature, I thought it appropriate that I began a health challenge:

Drink more water this week.

Water has a lot of health benefits and my attempts to drink more of it as a health habit have been a lot like March in Minnesota. So, I need your suggestions. How much is more water for you? How do you keep track of how much water you drink? What do you do to remind yourself to drink more water?

Meanwhile, I am just beginning my biography for the March Reading Challenge. I’m going to spend my spring break reading about Dolley Madison.

Do you want to Try It With Me?

Join in by trying the challenges with me, commenting, linking, or suggesting a challenge. If you want to write a post on your blog about what happened when you took the challenge, I will publish your link. Just link to my website in your post and send me your link.

Have you taken my poll on Finding What Inspires? I would love your feedback.

    I’m all over the water!
    I just filled up my 32oz container with cold water, and I plan to drink at least two of those throughout the day. It helps to know I only need to refill one time rather than eight.
    For your challenge, I will try to drink another 16oz.

    My book choice has changed. I was going to read Mother Teresa, but I already have a copy of the epic biography of John Adams by David McCullough. I am going to start that as soon as I finish These Is My Words- probably tomorrow.

    I read 1776 by David McCullough last year and learned a lot. I also have read two biographies on Abigail Adams. I can’t to hear about it, Minna.

    Drink more water? But then I won’t have room in my tummy for Diet Coke! Haha. I’m just finishing up a novel, then I’m going to look around for a good biography, so I might be a little late, but I’ll do it!
