I am bad for this. If it is in front of me I will drink it. SO I carried a bottle around with me most of the day. I did better doing that. Then I got to reading a blogs this evening and I see I am not the only one with this problem. I came across one blog that had this interesting site http://nutrition.about.com/library/blwatercalculator.htm it says:

A person who is 230 pounds

when the weather is not very hot or very cold,
and is not sick with fever or diarrhea should have:
119 ounces of water today, or 3.6 liters.
If you eat a healthy diet, about 20 percent of your water may come from the foods you eat. If you eat a healthy diet you can drink 95.2 ounces of water today, or 2.9 liters.
Water is an obvious source for your daily fluid needs. Other good beverages include milk, herbal teas, low-sodium broth, 100% fruit and vegetable juices. Soft drinks will also count toward your daily total of fluid, just remember that sugar sweetened soft drinks and fruit juices add extra calories to you daily diet that you don’t need, while drinking water may help you lose weight.
Well being that is what I wanna do…..I am going to drink more water because I need to!
With all of this being said I had dinner with a great friend tonight. She is also making a lot of changes in her life and instead of our normal Mexican feast we had subway. was a good choice. Now the biggy I had spinach on my sandwich. That’s right miss I am not going to eat that hit it out of the park :0)
Stayed under calories today and I am feeling good. Parking in the back of the lot and walking a bit further to get to and from work. Headed to the gym in the am. Looking forward to it!
Till Next time…..
