This Sparked Me!

I have found it easier to meet my minimum water intake if I bring in 8 8oz bottles of water to work with me. I keep them in a thermal cooler by my desk. I know that I must drink ONE bottle every hour. The bottles appear to be very small in comparison to bringing your water in a 32 oz thermos, so finishing one bottle doesnt seem so overwhelming! Each night I fill them back up to save money and waste! Every day by 5pm I have consumed a minimum of 64 oz and the remainder of the day is just a bonus

    yes Dandy Donna, you are correct, there are so many cute bottles out there, especially if you have a Kohls, they were at a great price last weekend. Also, I heard that a cool bottle with maybe a personalized or motivating sticker or label on your bottle, makes you happy and keeps you going.
I am very good because we have a free water cooler at work but does anyone have advice on what snacks to purchase so you are full before an evening workout?

    This is a good idea. It is easier to accomplish small feats then large ones. I know I don't like to drink water so this is a feat that I think I can conquer thanks for the idea.

    It's great that you are fulfilling all your water intake! However, on the Dr. Oz Show last week, he said that it was not a
good idea to reuse plastic water bottles over and over again because it's a haven for germs! Dr. Oz said it would be better to buy and use BPA-Free water containers. They come in very colorful steel bottles, usually in about 16 oz, but they might be available in 8 oz. Just thought I'd pass this helpful info to everyone. Be safe from the harmful bacteria inside plastic
