Take a 2 litre bottle into your office with you, such as an old soda bottle, and keep it tucked under your desk. Fill it up every morning before you start your day and aim to empty it by the end of the day. This way, you will know you've drank your 2 litres and won't have to keep track of how many smaller glasses you've had.

When I first started, I bought two water bottles, one for the office and one for home. I realized that wasn't enough, so now I have 3; one for the office, one for home, and one I put in my gym bag. I keep them all filled. That way, I am sure I always drink 10-12 cups of water a day.
Okay, okay, we've all heard a million times how important hydration is when exercising. I know this! 30 minutes into my walk in the desert when the temperature was under 100 degrees, I was tired, hot & noticed I wasn't sweating very much. Nobody but me, giant saguaros & the trail ahead. My h20
ran out when I was still 20 minutes from home. 2 hours after I was safely home, I realized I had not had enough water to drink BEFORE I started my hike. My usual water was NOT ENOUGH when I was starting out already under watered! Lesson learned! WATER, WATER, WATER! 91
