Sunday November 29, 2020 // Morning

Another month in the books and man, the past four weeks went by faster than the Flash. This article tees up my December 2020 Challenge and recaps my November 2020 challenge. Let’s get into it.

I have no clue where this month went. I was walking the little guy around the neighborhood in his parrot costume on Halloween then I turned around and I’m here on the couch punching the keyboard on the Sunday after Thanksgiving.

I’ll get into the specifics of each habit below. However overall, I felt good doing these habits. It was challenging but nothing super overbearing. This was good because I had a heck of a busy month during my 9-5 (which is more like 7-5 then 830-9 most days). Early December looks equally as hectic.

I kept to the plan of having a glass first thing in the morning, a glass around lunchtime, then slamming down the remaining 6oz of water sometime in the early afternoon.

In preparation for the jump, the past couple of days I’ve been doing glass #2 earlier in the day (11:00 AM-ish) so glass #3 can take place in the early afternoon. Let’s see how this goes…
