I put lemon in my hot water, too. You can also keep a jug of room temperature distilled water and sip on that. I also add unsweetened cranberry juice (just enough to give flavor and color) and enough stevia to take off the bite. When I do that I have not problems drinking plenty of water. I just went and bought several packages of cranberries on sale. I've frozen all but one, and I'm going to boil them to make cranberry juice to add to my water. That way I know they are sugar-free and perservative free! It tastes better, too. :o)

My Mom did that. She would also squeeze a bit of lemon in hers which really cleanses you and gives you a shot of vitamin C that is so needed when your body is getting stressed from the cold.
I did really well so far with this challenge over Thanksgiving in spite of traveling by car 13 hours each way! Had to really time those bathroom breaks though....

I'm in! It is hard to drink water when it's so cold... You might try hot water. I was visiting with my sister recently and she filled a mug with steaming hot water... I thought perhaps she was going to make tea but she drank several cups of hot water a day. I asked her about it and she told me that she noticed how much coffee she'd been drinking and realized it wasn't the coffee she wanted but just a warm beverage so she switched to hot water. It really is easier to drink hot water on a cold morning than cold.

You would do this when it is getting cold and harder to drink water!

B-r-r-r! I'm in! Mostly hot herbal tea though. I have a drafty house. 8 glasses a day until Christmas!

I know that November is almost over, but I want to post a challenge for you.

I'm going to be taking steps for permanent change to whole foods. About every 10 days I will post a new challenge, and that challenge will stay a sticky topic for 30 days.

Our first challenge is shifting from drinking sodas, coffee and sugary drinks to drinking water and herbal teas.

Our goal is to drink at least 8 glasses of water a day, plus one glass of herbal tea which is either unsweetened or sweetened either with honey or stevia.

Should you decide you want to join me in accepting this challenge, respond by saying, "I'm in!"

Once you've hit 30 consecutive days on a goal, reply to this thread by saying "I did it!" so we can celebrate with you!
