@FISHGUT3,
I’m assuming it’s raining.

I set a new goal to have half my water by 10 am. (Water used loosely, including the herb tissanes I like) with half that being water when I wake up (14 oz coffee mug plus taking my supplements is easily 16 oz.) and the rest at breakfast and drinking during my work commute.
I find this makes it simpler. Over the next 12 hours, it’s easy to drink another 32 oz.


As for all the “just drink it” people, I do drink mainly water. I just noticed I’d forget.
Therefore I thought a thread on how people develop the habit would be useful for other sparkers.


Wake up every day knowing you make the decision to begin your journey anew.

This choice in this moment defines now.
What is your now?

I track all my water intake on my fitbit app. That way I know where I'm at.

Drinking water is a natural for me. It's pretty much all I drink. When want something different, I'll drink unsweetened tea with a little 100% fruit juice.

I **ALWAYS** have my water bottle with me. Currently using a 24oz Contigo. If I'm working away from the house, I also take a 1/2 gallon Coleman jug filled with ice water from our tap to refill my water bottle (we use a Brita filter on the tap).

Every liquid counts, no need to guzzle, and fuss over it. Do your kidneys a favor.

Ice water, water, or almond milk (unsweetened vanilla, or the chocolate cashew/almond protein milk).

I dilute a 16 ounce bottle of flavored water - mixing two to three ounces of it with unflavored.

I start with coffee in the morning and drink water the rest of the day. I keep a large water bottle at work and one at home to remind me to keep them filled and keep me hydrated.

When I am at home I pour it into a glass filled with ice cubes. Already have had two glasses of water and one cup of coffee so far and it is just 7:00 a.m. Monday morning.

I have a pitcher and glass in my living room. I also work from home and I have pitchers and reuseable cups with straws filled so I can drink throughout the day without having to get up and refill my cup which would ruin my productivity.

I have half a glass first thing with medication because I have to wait for over 1/2 hr before I can have anything else after taking the med, and apart from that, in the Winter, (which it is here at the moment) I mostly just have cups of tea and a Coffee/Chicory drink. In the summer I drink about 1 extra glass of water plus have very watered down juice or a little sweetened diet soda in water.

I LOVE what your bottle says emoticon

Tips and strategies, folks.

What strategies do you use to get your water in daily?
Especially if drinking water isn’t your favorite thing.

I use bottles of set sizes and know I’ve to drink x number of them.
I have one bottle that marks it by 2-hour increments and says For Fox’s Sake, Drink Your Effing Water.

Wake up every day knowing you make the decision to begin your journey anew.

This choice in this moment defines now.
What is your now?
