Knowing how important water is to weight loss, I have tried a few methods to insure I get at least my 64 oz a day. And actually those of us who live in hotter climates (it gets to 120* here in the summer) should be drinking even more.
At work I either 1) Keep a post it on my water bottle with the latest time I took a swig. I try to do every 30 minutes, not a guzzle just a swig. 2) Take a swig every time I notice my body heat go up (when I get upset, stressed or a cute guy walks by :)194
*** Keeping track of your water also helps the day go by waaaayy faster :)
Your smart (and not so smart ) phone application. Use your free phone application to track your weight, exercise, calories burnt, calories intake etc. I love mine because it is free, and helps me keep track of everything on the go, besides of providing me nutritional information to choose better ,
I eat the same breakfast every day to lower my cholestrol---oatmeal with usually some fruit. I used to put it in the Nutrition tracker every day til I realized I could SAVE SOME TIME & ENERGY by copying it a week ahead on the COPY CUSTOM FOODS above the meal listed [on the Nutrition Tracker] . That little amt. of time INVESTED has SAVED ME TIME and TIME AGAIN [pun intended!]. If I am making a big batch of food,say a SP recipe for chili, I can copy THAT CUSTOM FOOD for Dinner a week ahead ...
...or however many days!These ways of tracking food help KEEP me on the Nutrition Tracker and THAT helps keeps my goal weight maintained!
