Plenty of water.

I was reminded (in something I read) about drinking enough water... the recommended 64 ounces a day.  Even though I assumed I was getting enough water, I decided to measure out what I typically drink.  I filled a glass with the amount I drink when I first get up in the morning, and poured it into a 2 quart pitcher.  Then I filled the glass again for the amount I drink at breakfast, at lunch, at dinner, and before bed (a smaller amount).

It filled the pitcher to the 2 quart mark... and that doesn't count the extra water I drink after exercising or at other times I feel thirsty.

I was excited to realize I drink plenty of water!  Hooray!  I've been patting myself on the back all day.  It's a good feeling to know I'm doing at least one thing right!  haha


  1. Good job! Your body takes extra water when you exercise, and you probably feel thirsty more often because you live in a desert-type climate. I always needed way more than the 64 oz. minimum.

    I met a lady from Florida who was worried that she had suddenly become diabetic because she drank a lot more water when she visited Utah.

    1. Lynn, I can definitely see how that would startle someone visiting this (and other) dry state. :-)

      Yesterday after running errands, I downed about 3 glasses full of water--gulp, gulp, gulp. Felt so dried out!

      And speaking of water... I sure hope and pray we get rain soon.
