It’s been awhile since I’ve done a 100 day experiment. My last one was pre-Yelp, where I went 100 days without using an exclamation point.

This time around, I’m tired of going without something. So, I’m adding something in instead!

Like many, I don’t drink enough water in a day. I do, however, consume plenty of other fluids. Namely, coffee, beer and cocktails (and I wonder why my pants aren’t fitting all that well!). While I could do a challenge where I’m cutting one or all of those out completely, the easier route I think would be to drink MORE.

More? Yes! It’s the solution to everything! For real, I think it just might be. At the end of 100 days I’ll let you know what I’ve found!

Here’s what I’m challenging myself with:

For 100 days, I will drink an equal quantity of water to my desired other beverage of choice. The glass of water must be consumed before consuming the other beverage. It must be done on a 1:1 ratio of water to other liquids. The ratio may be larger than 1:1 of water to other liquids, but may never exceed 1:1 for other liquids to water. There is no water substitute. So, drinking tea still counts as an “other” liquid. My inventive brain wants to say that gin and tonic or a vodka soda is another workaround. But no! Those also count as “other” beverages and require a glass of water prior to enjoying. Gatorade? Still an “other” drink. You get the picture!

Wish me luck! I start now, though August 14th will officially be day 1!
