I increased my water intake. I came across a Hydration Calculator nutrition.about.com/library/blwatercalcula
and entered my figures. What an eye opener! Both in the recommended amount of water suggested and the reality of the amount I was actually drinking on a daily basis. I make sure I drink 64 ounces of water every day. It's to the point now that about an hour after my second and final 8-ounce coffee of the morning, I feel thirsty and fill my 24-ounce Nalgene water bottle. That gets filled once more during the day. And I make sure I take my morning and evening med/supplement with an 8-ounce glass of water. There's my 64 ounces. I'm sure I drink a couple more glasses but I only track the 8 glasses.
I also track everything that goes into my mouth. If I consume it - it gets tracked. I know I will have to hold myself accountable in the food tracking for the rest of my life if I want to remain healthy and I'm okay with that!
