snappy tots: Drink yourself healthy

Drink yourself healthy

As part of our "feeling snappy" project we all tried to drink more water. For some, it has been hard to drink a half gallon a day, let alone a gallon. I was once told you should drink half of your body weight in ounces. So a person weighing 200lbs would drink at least 100oz of water. Whew, thats a lot.
My problem is I often forget. The beginning of March this year, I gave up drinking pop. I try to drink at least a half gallon each day. I have felt better, my skin is clearer and I am not as tired as I used to be. I am a strong believer in the power of water.
I came across this on a friend's pinterest board and LOVE this idea. I fill up two water bottles each morning to remind myself to drink them all, but never thought to actually mark the bottles. What a great idea!
Take the water challenge and start drinking today.
