I get my water everyday by drinking from a large bottle. I have a 24 ounce bottle and drink atleast 3 a day. Sometimes when I cant get motivated to drink it all, I drink from small 8 ounce glasses. Seems to make it easier to drink in smaller glasses.

I totally agree with the straw idea! My husband thinks I'm crazy when I tell him that I drink more water when I drink it through a straw, but it's true! I also start my day with 2 full glasses of water before I eat breakfast. I need less food to fill up and it gives me a head start for the day.

This is really weird, but I found that I drink more from glasses than from plastic or stainless steel. I tried drinking from a plastic cup and it was harder for me to finish it than the same amount of water in a glass cup. Maybe you're like me. Try different containers to drink from and see which one is easier for you.
Also, I just replaced every other beverage I drink through the day and time most of my water with my meals. I have glasses that are 20 oz. (2.5 cups) so I fill one for each meal and make sure I drink it all by the time I'm done eating. 2.5 x 3 = 7.5 Cups... only 1/2 cup to go, which I drink b4 bed when I'm taking my medicine... WHOOT! 8 cups!
I happily drink 4 x 750ml bottles of water at work everyday. the water is always chilled and it's filtered. At home I put a big bottle in the fridge with slices of lime and some frozen berries. makes it taste more interesting :)
Love the life you're in and live the life you love :)
Good Morning to all you lovely ladies. This is Fisa logging in. Today is a wonderful day to start or restart you healthy goals. Lets get out there and do what we love to get moving.
Today try to get in your water. If you are having a hard time with water do this little trick, get a glass, bottle or some kind of container that you like to drink out of. Measure the ounces that it hold and divide it from 64 oz (64oz = 8-8oz cups) and drink that much for the day. If you have a quart size water bottle drink only 2 that seems and looks less then 8. Right? This little trick helps me.
If drinking water is just boring for you add lemon, lime or also cucumber to your water. For a pitcher slice 2 lemons (roll your citrus on counter to get the juice flowing before cutting) or your choice of item and put in and let stand for 15-30 min then enjoy
Would love to hear how you get your quota of water in everyday.
