When I decided to cut out soda and drink more water, I bought a couple of brightly colored water bottles. I know it doesn't sound like much, but when I see the bright colors, my mood perks up a little bit-especially when I'm having a rough day at work! I also used to think water was so boring, but now I have the bright colors to distract me ;)

I found that the pounds are starting to melt away when I started to drink more water. In order to meet my water intake goal, I have kept out a 32 oz. cup all day that I refill with water. If I'm craving a certain food, I just refill it with water. This has helped me lose weight, meet my water goal, and stay on track!
I also keep an empty gallon jug in the refrigerator that is always full of ice cold water. This helps me refill my water so I can refuel as I go along through the day. I find that I'm now drinking about 12 glasses of water per day.
To make sure that I get my 64 oz of water daily I keep two 1-liter water bottles and refill from my filtered water pitcher each day. After I finish both bottles of water, I know I have met my water goal for the day! 194
I've found that I can easily consume eight 8-oz cups a water a day thanks to my new water "mug": a glass Pyrex 2-cup measuring cup. I just fill it with water to the 2 cup line four times a day and I've met my water goal. 244
