For many of us, drinking 8 (EIGHT!) glasses of water a day seems daunting, if not impossible. I found that using BIG glasses (mine hold just over a pint) means you only have to get through 4 - and that seems much more manageable. I have one before and/or with every meal, and often now find myself wanting more, especially after exercise.

I used to always feel the need to stop for a diet soda whenever I stopped by a convenience store for gasoline. Now, I go ahead and get the ice, and then fill with water. I am saving not putting the chemicals in my body and getting 4 glasses of water by the time it is done. I still feel as if I have bought myself a treat!
The disappointment in failing is too much so I fall back to the basics. Concentrate on getting 8 glasses of water, exercise (10 min), and 3-5 servings of fruit/veggies every day. It ALWAYS works & within days I'm ready to re-incorporate all the healthy habits I've learned to date!
