It works for me...

Tuesday, February 05, 2013

Seems simple enough, but it's made the difference between me getting my water in each day:

When I get to work I go fill my 2 quart pitcher and place it on my desk. I fill my cup over and over from the pitcher and drink until it's gone. Most days since I've started doing this I've had my water in before noon.

I used to think that getting up to get water was a better way but what I found was I would put it off for the things I needed to do at my desk. This way I can just continue to work and drink.


Fyi - I found the saying earlier today - and I have since placed it on my desk at work - it really rings true for me.

Have a great day.

    That's a great solution to getting your water-- staring that 2 quart pitcher in the face makes it an effort NOT to get your water in!

    Thank you for the quote. It's a great "get back on track" montra.

    I, too, have my pitcher of water by my desk. It follows me to the lunch room everyday!

    Love this quote! I have a slightly different version on my last vision collage ("Do not give what you want most for waht you want at the moment")

    Love that you are bringing the water to your desk. I totally get how hard it is to get up from the desk while in the middle of so much.

    Way to get it done!

    Way to go! That's a great solution to the water idea. I keep my pitcher in the fridge at work. It's no too far from my office and it makes me get my tush up from my desk. Of course, I've been caught short when I get too busy... LOL!

    Love the saying! It's so true.

    You've inspired me! I'll show you tomorrow what I mean.

    Good for you for figuring out what works best for YOU. We're all so different!
