On Water

Monday, March 08, 2010

One of my goals for this month is to try and drink more water. When I lived in Minnesota, hydration was no problem, but since I moved to Montana (2 years ago!) I have hydrophobia.
Montana is a high desert -- it's dry here all the time -- but my water intake has greatly decreased to my detriment. But since I've been paying attention, I realized some things:

1. I'm very picky about my drinking receptical. I hate drinking out of bottles -- little plastic ones, big Nalgene-y ones -- I much prefer a glass-glass. I've found a bottle that I'll tolerate at work, but drinking water is definitely very conscious.

2. I prefer my beverages hot. This translates to more tea and coffee, but they have caffeine. Do you folks count tea?

3. I hate having to go to the bathroom so often.

So I have a few barriers to fluid intake...I think most of them, I'm just going to have to suck it up and drink more. This is a particularly hard habit to form for me. Do other people have this much trouble?

    I don't count tea, but if you do use it, use white tea. It's the lowest on caffeine. Fruits will also keep you hydrated too!

    You should get some herbal teas-- those certainly count, since there is no caffeine to dehydrate you. You can also make herbal iced teas, which are really tasty!

    I know what you mean about having to pee all the time. It really sucks at work.
