In the summer I drink a minimum of 100 oz. If I'm outside bike riding, teaching in the sun, hanging out with my friends, I up that amount. I have a 64 oz pottery pitcher that gets filled every a.m. I also have two 20 oz water jugs that I fill each day when I walk out of the house.
If I leave the house at 7:45 am I have 1/4 of the pitcher gone. I take my two jugs with me. I end up filling those up before I get home. Then I continue drinking from my pitcher until it's gone. I also use ice in my water when it's hot so that's a little more H2O.
It's whatever works for each person. I have friends that say if they drank that much water they'd never sleep at night. they'd be in the bathroom. Well, kidneys get to rest when we recline & they clean out our toxins. I like to have enough water at night to get up a couple of times to keep the toxins removed. I can go back to sleep. I feel better. My skin is radiant & I most of the time, have energy.
When I'm worn out, I look at the pitcher to see how much remains. Usually, I haven't put much of a dent. So, after a few glasses, a few trips to pee, I'm better.
That's all I know about my need of water. Connie
