Completed Mini-Challenges

Weeks 1 to 6

Drink 8 (8oz) glasses of water a day

Guidelines:
Its simple just drink it. If your like me, and for some reason it is easier to get it down from a water bottle. You just need to drink 4 water bottles a day. And when you drink more water you tend to loose more weight. Yippie!
