Why is it so hard to drink enough water?!

Tuesday, September 04, 2012

Well, I have not drunk pop in over a month (which is huge for me). However, I have replaced it with copious amounts of teas (and I DO mean copious). I find the tea to be so soothing, but of course it is a diuretic. That would be ok if I were drinking tons of water....but I'm not. Here it is 9:25pm and I'm just not cracking open my first bottle of water. What's wrong with me?! I walk around with a dry mouth all of the time. It's not good. I betcha if I actually got 8 cups of water or more in per day, I would probably be able to think clearer. I usually don't think about getting my water in until the end of the day, maybe getting a bottle or two in before going to bed. I really need to work out a better plan for getting my water in during the day. It's not like I hate the taste of water....it's just that I get so busy at work and school that a whole day goes by before I even think about it. Does anyone else struggle with this?

    I definitely struggle with this. I keep a Nalgene bottle on my desk at work and I'm lucky if I get through a cup in my 8 hour shift. I try, but I just don't have the "need" to drink anything. I think that's part of my problem though - not hungry, thirsty. I think I messed up in my development somewhere. I don't know the difference sometimes. Let me know if you think of anything to fix this. I'd sure like to be in the 64 oz club!

    I have trouble getting the water in each day too Weightloss4real, so I started before breakfast in the morning drinking bottled water 16.9 ounces, then one before lunch, and one before dinner. Dumb me I thought the 9 ounces was short of the cup I needed so I added half a bottle before bed. Well every night for the last two weeks I have had to go to the bathroom 4 to 5 times. I am going to try 2 and a 1/3 bottles from now on. Its alot easier to cut down on something you DON'T like then something you like.
