I walk 2 miles a day and it has gotten easier. When I can't get out I use a DVD like WATP or Biggest Loser cardio. As for water, I drink a glass immediately upon getting out of bed and before every meal. That's four glasses or 32 ounces right there. I also fill a 32 oz bottle of water (sometime flavored with crystal light) and keep it with me. I reach for it before any other liquid. That's 64 oz. and my daily intake is done.
am doing well in terms of walking...please could you share tips on increasing water intake especially in winters

I'm walking about 20 daily already and working on drinking 1 gallon of water a day. Honestly I do feel a lot better by simply drinking water and I've notice that before I was able to drink 12oz of soda in less than 5 zips now I can't even get to my second zip. Therefore I no longer buy soda and the only time I may kind of drink some is at family gatherings and even then now I ask for a bottle of water.
I have never been good about drinking water but since I started this yesterday I am getting up to 8 cups a day. Also walked 30 minutes today with my walking tape. I guess I can walk 10 minutes on the other days I don't get the walking video done.

When I first started tracking 2 weeks ago, I would put in what I ate and I really saw how much calories and carbs that I was drinking. It took me a week and I quit drinking soda and only drink water now. I have lost 6 pounds in 2 weeks with the combination of no sodas and healthy eating. It really took me seeing the numbers on the screen to realize it.
