How do you get enough water throughout the day? It is recommended that we drink 8± glasses of water per day.
When I ate 3 meals in a cafeteria on a campus, I filled 2 glasses of water (no ice simply b/c I get more water) when I would go through the line to get my meal. I always made sure I drank both glasses no matter what. That meant that I only needed 2 more glasses during the day, which usually came into play while taking vitamins, or pouring a glass when I was thirsty.
Now that I’m no longer in that situation, I have to be a little more creative. I mean, who wants to order water with no ice when you can order a margarita or a beer?
When I go to zumba classes, I typically drink 34 ounces during class and have a glass as soon as I get home. I then have a bottle (16.9 oz) after lunch every day with my vitamins, and then one before I go to bed. No problems on that day!
My biggest problem is days that I don’t workout. What to do to get all that water? I drink my one bottle after lunch and two glasses at night, but that still leaves 4 glasses…at times that just seems overwhelming!
What do you do? And before you suggest it, I’m not going to count margaritas and beer as water. 😉
