Just how much have I lost?

hard to get the water down

I know I need to up my water intake. I have tried like 17 different cups, mugs and huge kegs to keep it in. The best one that keeps it cold all day is the bubba keg, but it doesn't fit in the car cup holders. Try driving with that big thing in between your legs. Ok don't try it I'll give you a glimpse into what you will experience- cold thighs, difficulty turning the steering wheel, and an uncomfortable ride. Then you decide you should put it on the seat next to you, but as soon as you put on the brakes or make a turn it falls off the seat and spills everywhere.

Then I got various plastic kinds but they sweat so much it gets everything around them wet. So then I just brought bottles of water but I end up only drinking one since i never get to the refrigerator to get the second one I brought. Oh the drama of getting all your water in. It was so much easier when I just went to the soda machine and bought a cold diet coke. Just the thought of a diet coke makes me sigh. I miss them so much. It has been one whole year since I had one, if you don't count the one I bought about a month ago at Sonic. But that was a fluke I just had to have one and I was there, and it was half price, and I swear the man at the drive thru knew how much I wanted one and suggestively sold it to me. But it was good. And I still miss them.

Speaking of refrigerators, I remembered that I left my half of a Subway salad at school over the long weekend. That just sucks. I mean I would have had it for dinner last night or lunch today if I would have brought it home. I hate when I do that.

What do you use to drink your 8 glasses a day?


  1. I love love love my nalgene bottle $10 at a Target it holds 32 ounces I try drinking 3 a day but sometimes only end up drinking 2

  2. One thing you might want to try is getting one of those small coolers you can plug in. That way you can keep it right in your class room and pull out a cold water when you want one. Another thing you might want to try is a double walled water bottle. I have a couple like that and they don't sweat. It holds 32 ounces, but mine has a runner's straw which I know some can't use. Or you could ask that they stock water in the pop machine and buy them like you used to the pop. I hate spending the money, but some times it is just easier.

  3. OMG, I so miss my soda too. Every once in a while someone will crack open an ice cold diet Coke and I will turn green with envy. Just the sound of the can popping open will make my mouth water. I tried some once, only to find that the carbonation just didn't feel good, so much for that. I hear you on the water intake it's tough to get enough some days.
