Hot enough for ya?  Recently our temps reached a whopping 105 degrees.  I know, you folks from Texas are laughing at me, I can hear you!  But no matter how hot your summer gets, it is important to stay hydrated.  Not with sodas or lattes (well, maybe a few of those), but with w-a-t-e-r.  Simple, plain, healthy and free.

Plain.  Did you catch that word?  When I’m overheated, nothing tastes better than an ice cold glass of water.  However I am often inside at my desk where I don’t feel quite as “desperate” for H20.  During those times my bottle of water often sits untouched for hours, despite my good intentions.

That is, until I discovered Crystal Light’s Enhanced Metabolism “On the Go” packets.  When I find myself avoiding water but in need of hydration, I will treat myself to a tall glass of green tea and peach mango mix.  Crystal Light’s campaign to have people “Water their Body” has honestly helped me to drink more water.  It tastes so good that I have to hide it from my 9 year old!

Another time I drink water consistently is while I take my evening walk.  This is one of my favorite parts of my exercise program, but in 100+ degree heat it can be rough.  I wait until late in the day, fill my water bottle and add a To Go pack and ice.  When the power walking gets rough, the treat in my water bottle makes the pain a little less… well, painful.

And speaking of painful, check out just how hard my trainer is on me.  My NINE YEAR OLD DAUGHTER TRAINER!

My water style used to be, “Put a glass of water in front of me and let it sit for a while.  Then forget to carry water with me on my long strenuous walk.”  Now my water style is, “Fix a bottle of water with Crystal Light Enhanced Metabolism and drink it immediately.  Then fill my water bottle before my walk and never EVER forget to bring it!”

Do you fill a large container with water and drink it throughout the day?  Or do you keep a case of water bottles under your desk to remind yourself to stay hydrated?  What is your water style, and how do you stay motivated to keep hydrated?

    We drink lots of water around here. It’s like water bottle central… and ALWAYS with a Crystal Light flavor packet added. My kids love it… and so does their mommy.

    It is going to sound a little obsessive but I actually count the ounces of liquid I drink. If I am running low, I will try to drink more in the afternoon.

    I always love water maybe because of the green tea drinking habit that my family has. Stay fully hydrated makes me feel energetic.

    I have a large container of water that I keep filled and cold throughout the day. When I’m on the go, I use my handy dandy water bottle. I love crystal light, but I only recently tried the on the go packets. They are a lifesaver! I love the lemonade.

    I have the cutest water bottle that I bought from Starbucks, and now I can’t resist filling it up with water and bringing it with me wherever I go. But of course, it makes the biggest statement when I show it off, so I make sure to take a drink about every ten seconds. My doctor says that I’ve become quite well hydrated in the past couple of months, my eye doctor says that the small amount of dryness my eyes had is gone, and I’ve lost 13 pounds by filling up on water. The power of H20 people (:

    I have two tall reusable water bottles that I fill at night. One goes in the fridge, the other in the freezer. They both go to work with me. When one’s finished the other is still icy cold. I keep crystal light on the go packets in my desk drawer at work for when I want a little flavor – cheaper than hitting the soda machine!

    I wait until right before bed and down a whole bunch of water. Smart, I know. But seriously – I’m kind of picky about my water. I drink mostly Fiji Water. It’s delish. I’ll down it before I realize I even started drinking.

    I almost always have a bottle of iced water with me. We live in hot climate so it’s become as automatic as carrying my keys.

    When I wanted to lose weight my doctor told me one of the easiest things to do was to up my water intake, but I would get (3) 8 ounce glasses in and think, “I need to be done!” I’d always had the packets, but I kept them in the boxes and they were “out of sight, out of mind”. Then, I moved them to a clear glass that was just a little shorter than they are. I leave them out on the counter and now I drink more water than ever! So do my kids…everyone has lost weight. That was 2 years and 50 pounds ago!

    I am in love with the Crystal Light Pink Lemonade packets. I have to stop myself from drinking the whole box in a single day, seriously!

    I LOVE the new Crystal Light on the go flavors! I like the Strawberry Kiwi, Lemonade and the Immunity Cherry Pomegranate! I keep a few packs in my desk drawer at work and keep a water bottle on my desk. I try to fill it up at least 3 times while at work and drink some more when I get home. :)

    I try to drink a lot of water but can easily feel water logged and lose interest before I drink what I should. I found that adding a Crystal Light flavor packet to my water adds the flavor to help me get the water drank and that bit of sweetness that my sweet tooth craves. hmmmm. I think I’ll have some now.

    My family of four likes to drink water and juices. We don’t keep soda in the home at all. Water is always accompanied by ice cubes or chips. Juice is always diluted with at least half as much water.

    I drink a lot of iced tea but I’m bad at drinking water. I’m trying to drink more now and I started buying bottled water. I try to grab one when I leave home so I’m not tempted to stop and get a soda.

    I have a 44oz. insulated cup that I drink at least 3 of each day – 1 by lunch, 1 by dinner, 1 by bedtime. It helps me keep track of my water intake, and keeps my water cold!

    I always have a water bottle with me, and I belong to our water club at work, so I don’t have a problem staying hydrated. I haven’t tried Crystal Light, but I think I might try those packets to change things up a bit!

    I just drink water by the glass. I’m not crazy about water bottles, and luckily most of what I do can be accommodated with a glass.

    Just tap water, lemon and a lot of ice, and I don’t find it hard to stay hydrated.

    I’m a big water fanatic – I always have a bottle near me. And I am happy with plain ‘ol water, although sometimes I’ll kick it up a notch with some flavoring. Either way it has to be COLD!
