When it comes to water, I need to follow my child's lead.

This video popped up in my newsfeed last week and it got me to thinking back.

Back to a few years ago when I lead the 4 Week Water Challenge over at Beauty Review.  Along with loads of members from all over the country, I increased my water intake and monitored the changes in my skin, body and mood.  I was really surprised by the results - but of course, life, babies and work has gotten in the way and I've let my water intake slide in favour of Coke Zero and tea.  

As so many parents before me, I'm a little (ok a lot) hypocritical.  At 3.5 years old, Milky Chops drinks nothing but water, and I'm stoked about that.  Me?  I seem to drink everything but.  For those who don't speak in fluid-ounces, this video is based on drinking 3 litres a day.  Right now I drink half that.  Which considering I'm breastfeeding is terrible!  So starting next Monday, I'm going to increase my water.  

It's time to kick start healthy living, starting with something easier than cutting stuff out.  I'm going to add water in.  

Are you in?  Take a selfie before and after the 4 weeks and email me them at beautycrew@beautyreview.co.nz so I can include you in the final results!

I downloaded an app which reminds me to drink water and to track how much I’ve had. It’s quite helpful because otherwise I would not have reached my goal today.

I need to do this! I try to drink enough water, but fail badly. This is the incentive I need.
