can't jot down or log on to record each time you eat something? draw out 8 glasses of water on a piece of paper, desired daily servings of fruits veggies, meats etc. then laminate and cut out. glue a magnet to the back of each and organize all on one side of the fridge door, each time you dink a glass of water move one glass to the other side of the fridge, eat a veggie or fruit, do the same thing to keep track of food and water intake throughout the day 4
nix the coffee...hot water and lemon is the way to go!
After tracking began, it became clear that I wasn't drinking enough water and was drinking too much coffee. I love the feel of that warm cup in my hands so I made the switch. Not only am I sleeping better but the hot water and lemon helps to increase my daily water intake. Win/Win!
