Tip To Track Your Water


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

This keeps me organized! To track my water, I got a water bottle that holds 2 c. of water. I put 4 hair elastics around the bottle. Everytime I refill the water bottle I slip off an elastic. When the elastics are gone, and the bottle is empty, I know I am done!!

I would always forget how many times I had refilled my bottle, it also saves on using plastic water bottles!!

    Yours is a good idea. I bought a plastic bottle that holds 4 cups, means only need to empty it & refill it one time each day. Yes, it does fit in the cup holders in the car so I can take it with me.

    Great IDEA. Especially if I'm on the run. When I'm home I don't have that big of an issue.

    What a great idea! During a busy day my memory fails me as far as how many times I have refilled my water bottle. I'll give this a try...........gotta be better then my mind. emoticon

    I always draw marker lines on my bottle, then I forget if I wrote my last 8oz or not. By removing one of eight bands I will always be sure, because my count will be set in advance. Thanks!

    Thanks I tried to have a large pitcher of water in the ref. but sometimes I am not home. I will try your idea. It is simple and does the job.
