Drinking Water


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

I have a 40 ounce water bottle that I carry with me all the time. I fill it up in the morning, and when its empty I fill it up again - once I've drank two of them, I've gotten more than my 8 glasses!! I put a straw in it to sip on water all day.... before I know it it is gone!

    I also do this but use a 28oz Glass instead of a 40oz. It definitely keeps me from "forgetting" my water

    Great suggestion. I like this. I have water bottles but no big ones. For me the idea of drinking 2 full ones is much easier than thinking about 8 glasses.

    thanks for the idea. I went to Walmart and purchased a 32 oz sports water bottle for that exact purpose. I figured i will fill it up before I leave each day and once that is gone...fill it up one more time..and I have completed my 64 oz for the day.
