I love fluids! I am a person who loves having something to drink, but I rarely drink soda or good old fashioned southern iced tea. I love water so cold it almost hurts your teeth to drink. I love drinking a very cold glass of milk.
However, I noticed that especially since I have taken this new job, I am not drinking near as much water as I am supposed to. For the past 2 weeks, every day, I made sure that I had at least 64 ounces of water to drink. In addition, I found out that when I am drinking this much water... it is a LOT harder if that water is ice cold. There were a few days that I ended up drinking 24 ounces of water shortly before bedtime, because it dawned on me that I hadn't had enough for the day. In a weird kind of way, I realized that drinking the appropriate amount of water each day is a lot harder than you think...often because life happens and before we know it, the day is over without the appropriate amount of water!!! I hope to continue this, but I think it was even harder to maintain in the winter. In the summer, we get hot frequently and a glass of water is just what we need to cool off... that is not true in the winter.
