As resolution season keeps creeping up, allow me to introduce you to Hydro Induction. This is the best way to test your dedication before you drop hundreds of dollars on a resolution that was doomed from the start.
Gym memberships can be expensive.
…and if you’re going to workout, you should probably look the part.
Gym clothes can be expensive.
…and since you’re talking about health and fitness, you keep seeing miracle supplement ads on Facebook…
Supplements can be expensive.
But do you know what’s inexpensive? WATER!
Hydro Induction is a super fancy way to say “start by drinking water”
Here’s how you get started:
An active body needs to stay hydrated. I’m not going to list all of the benefits of proper hydration, but there are WAY more than you think. Drinking water is one of the easiest things you can do to start being healthy, and that’s why we recommend starting here.
First we need to find out how much water you should be drinking. You can use this water intake calculator to see what is recommended for your lifestyle. After that, start drinking!
In short, it’s that easy.
But we want to take it a step further. Let’s add some accountability to the mix! At the end of each day, you will measure how much water you consumed for two to three weeks… or forever (water is good for you and this really isn’t that hard). Using a scale to measure by weight is easier, in my opinion, than trying to measure volume. But hey, do you!
Keep a log of your completion percentage. Remember it’s ok if you don’t hit 100% everyday, but it’s not ok to leave your progress undocumented. It’s similar to how bad workouts are better than avoiding the gym. Remember, the whole purpose of this is to see if you can actually set a goal and complete it before you waste your money.
Once you complete the time frame for your data set, you can calculate your efforts.
We’re about to do some math so bear with me
Volume consumed / Target volume = Completion Percentage
Average your Completion Percentage for the time frame.
This number will tell you the average consistency of your efforts.
It is hard to say how much more effort you could have put out. Estimating your maximum isn’t easy. But with Hydro Induction, a peak metric has already been set. It becomes very clear what your efforts look like. From here, you can tell if you are ready to fiscally invest in your health or if you’re just going to throw money away again… like last year… loser.
