I usually drink more if I have a glass with a straw. I guess I just like straws. Normally though I have a Nalgene 32oz bottle with me and I absentmindedly drink from it while I'm at work. It's harder when I am at home though because I don't tend to use the computer there.

Allons-y!

Shelly - I am too, but remember it always doesn't have to be STRAIGHT water to count! I've counted crystal light, lemon and water, even weak tea and it still works. The goal is to drink enough to flush the body of toxins and released FAT. It's a lot and I'm not doing well either, but we don't have to be perfect...just do better than the day before!! Wish ME luck as I'd rather just drink lattes or americanos, lol

I calculated how many oz. my goal was to drink a day. Then I divided it by how many hours I was at work in the day. Pretty much from breakfast to dinner. It is A LOT less overwhelming to know I only need to drink 8oz an hour over 8 hours than just looking at a 64 oz jug about ready to cry. :o)

I know I should be drinking more. I carry a water bottle around with me everywhere. But I think its more like carrying a weight with me all day because I don't actually drink it. Its not that I don't like water, I do. I prefer it over anything else or than coffee. I'm drinking maybe 30-40 oz a day, and that includes the water I use for my protein drinks. What can I do to get myself to drink more?
