Drinking Water

How do you all get on with drinking enough water? Im actually really bad and only tend to drink water when i'm going to bed or when I'm at the gym, so I'd love some tips on how to increase my water intake

I'm the same, especially when at work. I've started refilling a 2 litre bottle just before going home from work (sticking it in the fridge overnight) and taking it out in the morning to keep on my desk. At least with a bottle you can keep tabs on how much you manage

Yeah the bottle idea is a good one! At least then it's.almost a challenge to drink the lot in one.day.

Wobbs, is that something you had to get in the habit of? Im the same as you, I go thru so much water in the gym, I just guzzle the stuff! But then i just sweat it back out haha!.

I really find I hold onto water tho, especially if I've been standing all day in work so I do need to drink more.

I tend to have 2L on normal days, and 3L on exercise days. I manage it about 80% of the time. Obviously good for flushing out your system but helps to keep hunger down so less nibbling.

The water bottle idea is good x
