I wanted to touch base with you guys about my experience with the 50 Bottle Water Challenge.
First of all, I know now that it is possible to drown from the inside out.
Second of all, drowning aside, I think the challenge was a really good thing for me. We're not talking super-miraculous life-changing results or anything, but there were some definite improvements after the full seven days. Here's how:
1. My lips healed up....mostly. I still have a little dry patch, but overall they are much less lizzardy.
2. My skin improved. I was recovering from a makeup-related breakout, so my skin wasn't perfect, but my complexion did seem to even out a bit.
3. My hair was happier and much more cooperative.
4. I got thirsty. By the end of the seven days, when I hadn't had water in a couple of hours I felt legitimately thirsty, unlike before the Challenge when I'd look up at six o'clock and go, "Oh, I wonder if I've had anything to drink today."
I ended up completing the challenge at 11:30pm Day Seven, and despite my original intentions, I did not consume any alcoholic beverages (or any non-water beverages) all week because by the time I got my daily water quota in, the last thing I wanted was more to drink.
I encourage you to take on the Challenge for yourself and let me know what differences it makes for you!
