More Water!

Saturday, July 13, 2013

Happy Summer! I still haven't gotten back into the habit of drinking enough water. It's partially because I haven't been exercising enough, but it's affecting my ability to regulate heat.

And it gets 85 degrees in my "air conditioned" office at work, so I REALLY REALLY need to be efficient at regulating my body heat.

This is not water. It's coffee, or milk with coffee and sugar, or milk with sugar and powdered tea. Before I can drink any of this I need to have 16 oz of water. AFTER I have this I need to have 16 oz of water before I have anything else.

When I wake up, I shall have water. AT least a sip of water. I'll be thirsty, it'll be good and might lessen my morning headaches.

I will stop sighing over stolen water bottles, and get a new one, even if it has to be different if I need to.

I use a company insulated cup at work, so I've become less vigilant at carrying around water outside. I will collect up all of my water bottles and clean the dust out, and prep them to be my water receptacles. I will buy a new bottle cleaning brush at work since I'm hesitant to use the nasty one there.

Water is magical, hydrating, and healing! MMmm.
It's soooooo refreshing and delicious! Yum!

More water!

    Used to be a pot of coffee in the AM before I could even function. Started switching to herbal tea and started a love affair with water. Like the H2O queen always bugging my fam and friends " Have you drank your water today? no? you need to!" lol
    but lately? lately I have taken to drinking a giant glass of either lemon water or water and bragg's apple cider vinegar. I can't function if as soon as I wake up and let the dogs out and chickens out without my first of many waters of the day.
    I loved that last pic, water is truly magical :=)

    Get a 8 oz cup and sit beside the sink in the bathroom and as soon as you finish with the morning potty break lol that is as delicate as i can put it . Drink an entire 8 oz before you leave the bathroom that is one down and honestly it makes the coffee taste better first thing in the morning . Just a thought emoticon

    Good to use the older plastic bottles - not only to recycle but also to not be too upset if they are dropped, lost, fall out of a bag, etc.

    You're so right. I'm really bad about drinking water and have ended up almost dehydrated a couple of times this summer because of it. I installed a new app on my phone called Argus and it reminds me to when it has been 3 hours since my last drink of water.
