Drinking Water Daily

Tuesday, December 03, 2013

The below is actually my answer to the topic, "Have You Drank 8 Glasses of Water Today?" for the Team Forum, "The Spark Solution (The Official Team)".

Yes I have drank at least 8 glasses of water today! emoticon

However, I am excited today about drinking water. emoticon

Why you ask? Five reasons have me excited about drinking water!

1. Bought a new water bottle
2. Water bottle holds 32 oz
3. Bottom of the water bottle is contoured; fits in my car's drink holder
4. Cost only $2.99 + tax
5. Lid is same green as those little lights on my emoticon

Now seeing those little green lights will not only remind me to walk some more, it will also remind me to drink some more water!!! For me, it's the little things that make me happy!
I am inserting a probable conversation between my hubby & me after hubby reads the above about my *new* water bottle.

Hubby: "Another water bottle! Don't you have enough of those already?
Me: "Yes, however, I did send to Goodwill the water bottles I will not use again."
Hubby: " That doesn't mean you need to go out and buy another."
Me: "I didn't go to the store intending on buying another water bottle. You sent me to buy more coffee since it's on sale."
Hubby (with a twinkle in his eye & smile on his face): "Well, you will get your money's worth that's for sure!"
Me (thinking to myself): "It's a good thing it was only $2.99 & not $10.
End of probable conversation.

Actually, my hubby doesn't mind that I periodically buy water bottles. He knows they'll get used since I'm not a soda pop drinker (like him).

Water has always been my mainstay (don't know if this is the right word to use) when I want something to drink. Water is the liquid I drink first thing in the morning upon rising. A glass of water is what is on my dresser in case I'm thirsty during the night. A filled water bottle is, 8 times out of 10, tucked into my purse or bag. My hubby is ALWAYS waiting for me at the back door because, at the last minute, I'm looking for where I left my empty water bottle, then taking time to fill it!

In between all those bottles of water, I do manage to daily drink coffee, ice tea, hot tea or an occasional soda. The coffee is a must after my initial 32 oz of water first thing in the morning! However, the ice tea, hot tea or occasional soda is usually only when I've finished the travel bottle of water & the local water is awful! emoticon

But water is my go-to-rather-have drink! emoticon

    Wow, 32 ounces of H2O before coffee?? You are a water nut!!

    You have excellent water habits. Don't you find that the more you drink, the more you want? Have you ever counted your typical water intake? I bet it's 100 ounces or more!!

    emoticon I too went the expense (cheap) and bought a 32oz bottle. It's great as I know I have to drink 2-full bottles. But find it so much easier to drink water in the hot summer months. Kind of harder in the winter. Especially if you forget the bottle in the car...and it freezes emoticon
