Aiming for progress, not perfection.

will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus."

Drink More Water: Results

Oh. Hi, there. Remember me?

[Insert story about where I've been...leadership camping trip...sick baby...wisdom teeth pulled...blah, blah, blah.]

Now that that's out of the way, I have been drinking more water. So Project 34 has been a success.

It is not complete, however.

I am still not drinking enough water.

But I'm working on it. I'm pretty sure these projects are not meant to be complete in a week.


One way I've tried drinking water that has made it more "special" (plain water always seems so boring) is to infuse it with apple slices. A nice change from your average lemon or lime water.

Also, it's lovely to photograph.


I've also stopped drinking sodas as a part of a fast I'm doing with Landon, and that definitely drives me to drink more water. Soda -- what I was drinking by default -- is not an every day option.

Because the idea of never, ever having a Dr. Pepper is something worth a proper mourning period, Landon and I built in a loop hole: We can drink a soda with a meal when we're out of town. It's the perfect limit. And so far, we're adhering.

I'll be back later with my next Bite. I'll tell you now, it will be about as exciting as drinking more water. Read: not.

In the meantime, here's my reason for being absent. Note all the snot and screeching.


Hello and welcome. In 2012, I am working through Simple Mom's e-book "One Bite at a Time: 52 Projects for Making Life Simpler." Each week, I will post about a project I plan to work on for the following week (and beyond). I will post regular thoughts and progress along the way.

If you're interested in buying the book (only $5!), would you consider purchasing it using the link listed above or the button on my sidebar? I'm an affiliate, and I will receive a portion of the each book sold through my affiliate link. Thanks!
