Day 21- Drink eight glasses of 8 oz. of water today.
Suggestions: One suggestion is to use a gallon jug and then just fill it with as much water as you want to drink that day. Then you will have a quick visual of how you’re doing. If it’s 3 in the afternoon and you’re not done with half… you better start chugging!
Keeping It Real: I did a study about water consumption back in college and what I remember about it is that the cells in your body hold onto water. If you are drinking enough water, your body can use and release water regularly because it knows more is coming. If you’re NOT drinking enough water, your body holds onto the water much longer… leaving you with old, putrid water surrounding your cells. Yuck! That thought was enough to make me want to drink, drink, drink.
Another suggestion is to have a big glass of water whenever you feel hungry and again before each meal. This can also help with appetite control.
This is one I need to work on. When I was pregnant I did a great job having a water bottle filled and out on the counter all day to make sure I was getting enough water. And then when I came home from the hospital they gave me this huge hospital water mug (Does everyone goes home with these?). This is a great reminder to pull it out and drink more water!
Here’s another idea:

I made this totally awesome (right?) water bottle to help me have a visual of how much more I need to drink in a day. I hope that you take this tip as a good reminder to drink, drink drink (Water).
See ya all tomorrow!
