My goal for 8 weeks was to drink accleast 8 bottles of water a day. The first couple of weeks were kind of hard because of timing which meant that that in some instances I had to drink 3 bottles of water an hour because of my daily schedule. To begin with 8 bottles of water was at first in my opinion hard to do because I wasn’t used to it so I started off drinking 4 bottles of water a day then I gradually moved up. This goal was important to me because of a couple reasons.

Water also clears your skin. I tracked my progress by my phones notepad. Each time I drank a bottle of water I recorded it and recorded the time I drank it.

When I achieved my goal I felt not just confident in myself, but i also felt that I learned more about how to organize myself. It was not such a hard job to do. But to keep track of it was kind of challenging because I would forget to record it time from time and have to go back and try to remember the times I drank the water and how many bottles I drank. My phone played a great role in my accomplishment because, without it I would have used paper and I know that it would have been a failure because keeping up with the paper and having it on me all the time would have been a little inconvenient. But my phone on the other hand is all ways on me so it made it easier. My teammate in which I live with kept me drinking when I was in practice as well as when we were home. She continued to remind me to record any bottles of water I drank. She also helped me with keeping water bottles in the freezer and refrigerator so that I wouldn’t have any reason not to drink a whole bottle. Although she was a great help
