When I feel like I really want a Coke or other treat, or like it just doesn't matter or nothing's working, I try to put it in perspective. I ask myself, "Is this treat really worth so much to me right now that it's worth not meeting my current goal?"
Really puts it in perspective when you think about having your Coke vs. fitting into a wedding dress or swimsuit, having the ice cream vs. keeping your sugar/cholesterol down, etc.
I purchased two 32 oz. Nalgene bottles. Having two bottles means always having cold water ready and available. I also bought a splash guard for these wide-mouth bottles so that I can drink from them while being active without spilling on myself. Finishing two bottles seems like less than drinking 8 glasses of water, but it's the same amount! Also better for the environment than plastic bottled water!
I purchased my Nalgene bottles and splash guards at Amazon.com.
