I drink at least 24oz of water first thing in the morning to make sure I'm hydrated before exercising...and I usually drink another 24oz while exercising. It's a good way to get most of your water in before lunch. The last two cups are a breeze! Cheers!

I find drinking 2 cups of water first thing in the morning everyday helped me to get into a regular habit of starting to get my water intake that is very much needed in order to suppress my appetite and to help me with my weight loss.As I was not a water drinker at all.The body needs at least 6-8 cups of water a day. I am in a habit now of doing this on a regular basis,as it is a part of my daily life now for 7yrs.....my body craves water now and that is the only liquid that quenches my thirst.
If you are having problems with getting your water intake in just add some freshly squeezed lemon to it,by doing this you get the added bonus of ridding your body of fluid retention also. Give it a try.I found it worked for me.Good luck!! 30
