Tips to Reach Your Water Goals

Yesterday was the first day of my March Challenge. For more information on that, click here. As part of my March Challenge, I am going to make one goal for myself each week.

This week, my goal is to drink 120 ounces of water per day. Why 120 ounces of water per day?

They say you should be drinking anywhere from a half an ounce to an ounce of water for each pound you weigh, per day. For example, if you weigh 150 lbs. then you should be drinking anywhere from 75 to 150 ounces of water a day. You can read more on that science by clicking, here.

I've discussed here many times before the reason why drinking water is so important for reaching your weight loss goals and for staying healthy, in general. As a refresher, I'll share with you some tips on how to reach your water goals each day!

Goal of Losing's Water Drinking Tips:

1. Make a water goal.
Know how much water you want to drink for the day, ahead of time. 

2. Make arrangements to reach your goal.
Plan ahead to pack bottles of water, or bring your reusable water bottle with you anywhere you go.

3. Share your goal with a friend.
Encourage each other to reach your goals.

4. Keep track throughout the day.
If you have a reusable bottle that you fill up, put a piece of tape on it, and keep track with a marker each time you fill the bottle!

5. Drink a full glass of water, first thing in the morning.
Have a bottle of water by your bed, in your car, at your desk, etc.

6. Drink water with each meal and snack.

7. Drink with a straw.
If you're like me, then you may tend to drink more of anything through a straw.

8. Invest in a reusable bottle.
You're going to be using it often, so pick one you'll enjoy toting around!

9. Add Flavor.
Try a slice of lemon.

10. Reward Yourself.
If you reach your water goals for the day, treat yourself with a reward of your choice. 

Above all, remember that drinking water is good for you and can even help you to reach your weight-loss goals! So what are you waiting for? Take a drink. Cheers!
