I was like a bottomless pit water-wise today - a gallon (128 ounce or 16 cups) of water today. Seems when I am sitting in business seminars listening to someone speak, I just keep reaching for the water bottles. That's where I was most of the day - and by the time the day was done, I had gone through 8 16-ounce Poland Spring bottles.

Suffice to say, there were more trips to the bathroom than usual too :-)

I was like a camel gearing up for a multi-day desert trek - with all the exercising I did today, I got in about 20 cups (160 fluid ounces today).

Lead me to the Sahara!! :-)

I always drink my water. It has a lot of needed benefits. Drink a small glass every time you eat. One at the beginning of your meal and one at the end. It always tasted better with ice. emoticon

It's 8:40am as I type this and I already have 40oz of water consumed today. Don't think I'll have any problem getting to the 64. But then drinking water's never been a problem for me.

I don't usually have a problem getting at least 8 cups of water in a day, but I know that now that it is cooling off I need to be careful. I am one of those people that don't get as thirsty when it is cooler, so I tend to not drink as much. I am determined to continue to drink at least 8 cups of water a day no matter what the weather is like.

I have to agree that starting early in the morning really helps getting it all in. It's too daunting to drink all that water when there are only a few hours left in the day. I tend to do my power chugging while I'm in the car. I also make sure that I always have water with me at my desk.

I always drink at least 8 glasses. Now that its colder, I feel so dry if I don't drink enough.

I love the icecubes too. I have accustomed myself to
drinking the water and never even think about the amount of ice I crunch on. I just chug a lug the bottles of water. I am going to get one of the filtering pictures as I think the plastic bottles
add up too fast and do nothing for the environment...
at least not to improve things. Great to think about the ice as a way of getting the necessary fluids.

Always getting at least my 64 ounces in ... although I have to admit, I'm not always "drinking" the water - I'm sometimes chewing, or sucking on it (I happen to love ice cubes :-)
