Drinking Water

Thursday, January 17, 2013

Is it possible that drinking 8 glasses of water a day can be both easy and difficult at the same time?

-If I make a concerted effort to do it, I can be done around 2:00 p.m.

-If I don't finish in the early afternoon, but keep drinking water anyway, I'll be up once or more overnight, which tends to make me a little edgy the next day.
-It really only takes a few nice big swigs and then a whole cup of water is gone.

-Sometimes I feel like I'm really forcing down those swigs.
-I don't utterly detest the "taste" or lack of it.

-I feel like I'm a bit of a purist when it comes to water--If I add drink packets that contain sucralose and things I can't pronounce, does the harm outweigh the good? What about food dyes?

Do you have similar feelings about water? Do you have helpful hints?

    I am regularly drinking 5-6 cups a day, but I know I need so much more! I love ice water, but while I am at work during the day, I feel like I am doing nothing but drinking water, which makes doing my job kind of difficult. I completely understand! Such a true thing...:)

    I can relate to this topic. Most of time I have no problem drinking my water. But someday aren't. I try drink old fashion way. No added flavor. However, Lately, I have started adding Apple cider vinegar, in the morning. Sometime before the dinner as well for my overall health.

    I drink 16 oz in the morning when I first wake up to accompany my morning medication/supplements. Then, at work, I have a 16 oz cup with a screw-on lid and a straw that I refill the minute I get to work in the morning and at least three more time through the day at the water cooler in the breakroom. Then, I drink another 8 oz in the evening with dinner. I don't use any flavoring, I just drink it "plain".

An unfortunate side effect is that I do have to pee every three hours, even in the middle of the night...

    I'm currently in love with Mio flavoring in my water. I don't use nearly as much as they recommend. It's amazing - now I'm easily downing 3L over the course of a work day.
