Happy Valentine's Day to you! Keep your eyes on the prize and hang in there! Regarding your water, try adding a little flavor with Lipton Green Tea mixes. The little packets add 0 calories and don't contain phenylananine (it's the active ingredient in aspartame and I'm allergic to it). I find that I just drink lots of water without thinking about it (I got a nice water bottle that is my best friend), but when I want a change of pace, adding lemon or one of these packets does the trick for me.
