Rules for the Waterfall Challenge:

    • Try to reach a certain water intake amount each hour. For instance, during an 8-hour workday, drink 10 oz each hour.
  2. Avoid sweetened beverages like sodas, fruit juices, sweet tea and lemonade.
    • Instead drink plain water, fruit infused water, or zero-calorie flavor packs in water
