For someone who spent decades strung out on diet coke, drinking water didn't come all that naturally. But little by little I've learned ways to incorporate drinking water in my daily routines. And as a bonus, I lost 7 pounds the month I gave up diet coke for good and I've never felt better.
* Drink water in restaurants with lemon. * Drink water while shopping. *Always have water with lunch. * Drink water while I'm waiting for my coffee to brew. * Keep water bottle handy while working out. * Make water a staple on my shopping list. * Keep cold water in fridge.

Always carrying around a water bottle (be it throwing it into the car or toting it around in my purse) reminds me to reach my water limit and is an easy way to start incorporating water into your daily routines.
While cooking, I try to incorporate some strength & toning exercises.
For example: while waiting for a pot to fill I do leg lifts; while mixing salad I do plies & releves; while waiting for something to boil I will do pushups against the edge of the counter; or while getting something from the pantry I will use cans or jars as weights for a few reps. 306
