Hey Stefani! I've been sick for the last few days, camped out on the couch with lots of tea and honey. I'm not hopeful that tomorrow's weigh in will be a good one, but I'm not going to worry about it, and get back on track as soon as possible.

As far as your water intake, what's your daily goal? You could make it a goal to have one full glass before breakfast/work/morning workout, etc to start the day right. How about diving up your total ounces/cups goal, and challenging yourself to hit half of it by lunch and the other half by dinner? That way if you're approaching lunch and you're short, you focus on small chunks. Or getting one of those water tracking bottles (I think Weight Watchers makes one)? Or get a white board, use tape (or a Sharpie) to section it off into like 10oz sections, or 8 cups, whatever your goal is, then have fun crossing off each section as a goal visual?

If all else fails, give yourself a prize if you hit the goal for so many days in a row - I'm motivated by prizes hahaha!

Hi Stefani! Way to go about sticking with your own lunch even when there was yummy catering! That's so hard. I've given in so many times, I 'm so proud of you! You've mentioned having trouble with water intake a few times now - what are you going to do differently to make it happen? :) Asking the tough questions!! Hahaha!

Something is always better than nothing - don't worry about not meeting your goal 100%, tomorrow is another day! I went over my calories just a bit yesterday, but I got in a good workout so I was ok with it. I had a work meeting at a restaurant today, and I looked at the menu ahead of time - they had "healthy" entrees and even some skinny cocktails (as everybody always stays for drinks after). I was SUPER proud of myself for sticking to those healthy options!!!! I had good food and fun, while staying on track. YEAH!

Sometimes getting my water in is one of the hardest goals for me to hit! I have good intentions, then the workday is over, and I've had almost nothing to drink! It's so bad, I know. I'm going to try having a glass as soon as I get up to start the day off right!

Hey there! I love your Spark name! Thanks for adding me - I definitely need all the motivation I can get :) What goals do you have this week? I just want to stay on track, not start the week strong and fizzle out by the weekend! I need to get moving, track my food, and make good choices!
