Not sure if I'll make it today.

I had to go to a field day at work, which consisted of waking up at 6 am, driving 3 hours, standing around on top of a hill for 2 hours with narry a tree in sight, sitting around listening to old men talk for 2 hours and then driving back 3 hours. The lack of bathroom facilities made me leave my water untouched. I only drank 16 oz by noon and paid for it with a massive head ache.

I'll try again tomorrow!

I'm "shamelessly" behind. Brought my bottle to school today, but didn't fill it up at home. Tap water here is apalling. So here it is 17:00 and I've only 750 done. Going to make 2L of herbal tea as it's cold. That shoulld help me catch up!

I came one 750ml bottle short yesterday. Was kinda of a weird evening where everyone tried to reach me at once. Excuses I know. Off to go for it again today...

Wow. That's about 4.75L! I'm going to go for 4L (up from my normal 2.5/3 a day) and see how I do with that for a week.

1.75L done so far today and that's before lunch. Happy with that.

Slacking! Still need the last litre or so.

I know I grew up with imperial, but I abandoned it with glee as soon as I got to Europe (though Ireland, like the UK is still kinda half and half, lived in Germany for 4 years).

Here's the website that quite literally helped convert me (arf, arf). The calulator function was a godsend.

c'mon girl as a Yankie you should know about cups!! Basically 9as far as I gather!!) every recipe in the States is based on cups - I guess they found lbs and ounces too hard!! LOL

1 cup = 8 oz - whether it be flour, sugar or water
ergo cup = 4 oz

they have stackcups for baking, 1, 1/2, 1/3, 1/4, 2/3, 3/4.

1 oz = 25g so hopefully you can now work things out!
oh and as for litres - 1 litre is 2.45 pints (UK) (UK has 20 floz to the pint, where as USA has 16 floz to the pint)

Now my poor brain is mathed out!

Ha! I actually force the boy to do a brogue every now and again for my amusement. An American transplant myself, but in all honesty he sounds more American than I do. No worries about the Guinness in the liquid form, but the porter cake nearly did me in!

Back on topic (tee hee), another 750ml down for me = 2.25L down and 1.5 roughly to go. As I've yet to do phys, that shouldn't be a problem.

By the by, I'm sure it's on here somewhere, but when SP refers to "cups" of water on their trackers/goal sections/etc., is that the same as a measuring cup or a certain amount of ounces or what? I find it a very tricky concept for my poor noggin.

to be sure to be sure! Welcome to the land of shamrock and little men!
I love Ireland! spent a year going back and forth to it with an xbf - went as far Wast as Galway, and did abuot 50 miles south and north of that line from Dublin .

Now did you know that a pint of guiness has 170 calories to it?

Aha! Another GMT-er! Was also wondering why you were up so early. I'm usually trawling around here all by my lonesome in the morning.

You've got it!

I don't usually have trouble getting a lot of water and since I've been sick I've been drinking herbal tea like it's going out of style (which I count as water).

Yesterday I got 18 glasses!

I'm in! (3 down, 13 to go!)

Actually, now that you mention it, I may go for just that little bit extra today. I'm bad about my sodium intake, so it'll be nice to wash some of that out of the system. Thanks for the great challenge!
