An easy way to drink 8 glasses of water a day is to get a tall glass which holds 500 ml or 16 floz. Drink one when you wake up in the morning, another before lunch, again before dinner. Thats 6 down, just two more to go throughout the day and whilee exercising and your done.

Getting enough water in helps me stay hydrated and feeling better in every way. When I don't drink enough water, I feel bloated and "blah". SOO, in order to make sure I get a good start on getting in enough water in a day, I fill up a large water bottle the night before (atleast 16 oz is what I do) and stick it beside my bed. In the morning, the first thing I do is drink the water...
if you don't like room temp water you could freeze it first and then sit it by your bed so that in morning it should still be a little chilled.
When I was getting started I had the hardest time getting my water in. I made the point to pack two bottles of water with me in the car. At each stop light I take at minimum two drinks of water. By the time I get where I'm going, I have already finished one bottle. I'm actually up to two now.. Give it a try!
Many, many days of not getting enough water, but I'm getting better with it. My secret - start as early in the morning as possible. Even better to get active as early in the morning as possible to increase the need for more water.
