I put slices of cucumber in my water, or a few berries and lemons or limes in my water ... that helps quite a bit to change it up and keep the water tasting fresh and interesting. i also drink tons of seltzer water and i put lemons or limes in that ... I have a big cup that holds 4 cups of water so I know I have to drink at least 2 or those daily (I tend to drink about 12 - 14 cups a day) ...

I have both a set of glasses and three metal bottles that hold three.cups....which makes it very easy. I've never been much of a pop person and if I have coffee or black tea past noon I can't sleep so water is a no brainer.

I gave up sodas / tea / coffee 91 days ago. Each night, I put 6 16.5 oz bottles of water in my fridge and drink them throughout the day. I also keep a bottle by my bedside!

I can only drink plain water when working out. I have a 24 oz bottle that I carry with me for water during exercise the mornings I drink coffee with just powder cream and in the afternoon I switch over to hot tea with just cream. So I'm getting plenty of water during my days. Theresa
It's a rare day when I drink fewer than 12 glasses of water per day. I am currently attempting to lessen my coffee intake. I have a 16 oz mug that I fill with half coffee and half hot water three times in the morning. So by 9:00 am, I usually have at least four glasses of water in (or through) me.

I had trouble at first, and some days i still do just because before I started considering my health, I would drink 4 energy drinks and 4 cans of soda. I cut them out of my diet and wasn't replacing them with water until very recently. I got a water container (its 52 ounces) and I don't allow myself to drink anything (except my breakfast shake) until I drink 2 of those containers. The nice thing is that most of the time it takes me most of the day and then I dont drink soda with my dinner or when i'm watching TV
I have no trouble drinking all my water. I always have a cup near me when I'm home, and I always fill a bottle to take with me when I go out. Sometimes I add lemon juice, but most times I just drink it plain. If I go out to a restaurant, I always make sure I have water with my meal.
