I fill a 20 oz Tervis tumbler with ice and water and when it's empty I record 2 servings of water, then fill it again. I never let it sit empty and must drink at least 6 of my 8 glasses by 5-6 PM everyday to keep me on track.

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.
At the 99 cent store over in the next city from where I live, they sell these containers for water. They advertise this container should be enough for our daily intake of water (8 cups? glasses?). It makes things easier for me. I drink all of it, and I'm assuming I'm getting my needed water. Purchase is only 99 cents :)
