I have to admit to never drinking enough. It is just that I hardly ever get thirsty

I log my 8-ounce drink shortly after each drink of distilled water.

I have it with me all the time!

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.

Here's an article that might give you some ideas:

www.sparkpeople.com/resource/nutrition_art
icles.asp?id=1014


There are tips in there, plus links at the bottom for more information too. What works for me is having a two-cup glass, and drinking one of those before work (usually not a problem as I do morning cardio). I have the same glass at work, and fill it three times while I'm there. If I don't have it drank before morning coffee, I drink it instead of coffee. Fill it up and drink it again before afternoon coffee break. Fill it one more time and drink it before I leave.

I often have more at home after that, but I know for sure I get in 8cups by five o'clock.

I love water..its about all i drink anymore. I have a huge insulated mug..i fill it with ice every night, then with water. It holds 74 ounces, and i have it gone by the next evening. I also have water here and there in a glass throughout the day, so i know i'm getting my 12 cups (dr recommendation for me)

Hey, i am also working on drinking more water. It is definitely a challenge. I haven't found out the secret to drinking more but i am trying. Good luck to both of us.

no excuses, get it done now!

I've picked out a favorite glass that I refill often. I've never been a water drinker and am kind of trying to train myself or get in the habit to do it more.
