Water Water Every Hour

This Sparked Me!

I purchased a 4 cup mug with a straw.
Each day I have a "contest" with myself.
I try to empty the mug by Noon...then refill it.
I try to empty the mug by 3:00...then refill it at home.
I try to empty the mug by 10:00...voila...12 cups of water in for the day!

    Thats a good idea that's working for you emoticon I have a 64oz pitcher that I fill up every night and put in my refrigerator. Next morning I pure myself a glass of cold water, knowing that I'll empty the pitcher by the end of the day, to refill again.

    If you have difficulty intaking water, it is helpful to get a straw! I used to put one in my water bottle every day until I was drinking 8-9 cups/day! When drinking through a straw, a lot of times you are unaware of how much you're drinking and it makes drinking lots of water much easier!

    I have a 24oz bottle that I fill 4 times a day! It's true that sometimes we think we're hungry when really we're just thirsty.
