Drinking water

I had trouble drinking my 8 glasses of water but I have noticed I do better when I have the caps off. Since my recycling company asks to have the caps removed before placing the bottles in the bin I save them for the day to help me keep track of how I am doing.

Easy Destress Trick

When I pet my cat and she starts purring, I know she is happy, content and relaxed and a few minutes of petting her makes me happy, content and relaxed. It also gives me a positive attitude and motivation for the day. Any pet can do this. Most are always there and willing to let you pet them.

Water Intake (at home)

I purchased several 24 oz water bottles (plastic ones at Walmart for $1.00) and keep them filled with water in the fridge. So whenever I need water I just grab a bottle and I know that it is 3 glasses. I carried it around the house with me always.

If your tired rest!

If for some reason or you have medical problems that make you tired, it is OK to take a rest day. This gives your body time to regroup and re-energize itself. Never feel ashamed because you need to do this. Tomorrow is another day to jump out of bed feeling ready to exercise.

Water Bottle

Everytime I go to the bathroom at work I take my water bottle along and make sure to fill it up at the water fountain to make sure I'm getting my water everyday.
