Tips for Drinking Water

I used to hate water.  With a passion.  What do you mean I am supposed to drink this bland, tasteless liquid? Ew ;)
Well, now I would say water is my drink of choice!  Besides coffee in the morning and sometimes a decaf tea, water is what I drink all day.  I have been trying to drink 100 oz (about 3L) of water a day for the past three weeks and have noticed a huge difference in how I feel.  I know that number probably sounds insane, but it's actually easy and completely do-able.
As you can see from the above picture, I like to pack my drinks ahead! (I also despise paying for bottled water and prefer to carry my own.)
  I start every morning with a cup of hot water with lemon.  This combo helps with the condition of my skin, kick-starts my metabolism, keeps the cold/flu away and is just a refreshing start to the day. 
I also love a pretty mug or water bottle.  This might seem simple or irrelevant, but I say, whatever works!  I love my Charlotte Ronson Starbucks mug at work and this 30 Minute Hit water bottle at home: 
I have calculated how many oz the mug and the bottle are, and I like to keep track all day. It's surprisingly easy to drink when the bottle is always with me or the mug is in front of my in the studio.  
Also, as I have been working to drink more water, I notice how often water curbs my appetite.  I know I am not actually hungry, and the water can be very satisfying.
I like to add a little something to my H20 as well, like this picture with fresh mint.  Cucumber, lemon, watermelon, strawberries and lime are also very nice.  Plain water is going to get boring, mix it up!
My skin is clearing up very nicely, I am never bloated and I just feel much more healthy. 
That being said, I must always be near a ladies' room ;)
