Some of you may recall that I have been working on water loading between meals to address any unnecessary grazing/snacking.
This was the goal that I took on during the last Accountability Mondays series, and it proved to be a GREAT change for me and in fact an improved habit! This is what I have been doing.
First let me back up and tell you about the Accountability Mondays sessions. We’ve had two six week sessions so far this year. Series 3 starts next Monday April 23.
Session 3: April 23 – May 28
The objective of the six week sessions is to meet once a week on Monday morning at 10 am Eastern time by phone. You select a habit to work on whether it is changing a behavior or adding a new behavior. We talk each Monday morning about how the previous week went and what the plan is for being successful the week ahead. It is a brief call but has proven to be very effective for those participating, including myself! Reach me by sending me a note via Ask Tiny Tank as we’d love to have you join us for the next series. All you need is a want to change something, together we can do it.
This past series I choose to work on increasing my water intake. And by doing so, I’ve actually been able to to change my habits so that I am now sticking to my three small meals and then water loading at an opportune time prior to my next meal. I am amazed it all turned out this way. I’ve found by trial and error that my water loading times are at about 10:30 am and 3:30 pm. These times are far enough after my last meal but close enough to my next meal.
The best part of all is that my night time snacking has been replaced with a large glass of ice water! I’m hooked!
