How Much Water Do You Drink

DAY 11

How much water do you drink each day?  If you are anything like me, it is not nearly enough.  I was watching the Dr. Oz show the other day and he demonstrated a test which reflects whether your body is adequately hydrated.  All you have to do is gently pinch and slightly pull the skin on the back of your hand upward and see how quickly it goes back to its normal flat state.  According to Dr. Oz, your body is adequately hydrated if in one second (counting: one one thousand) your skin returns to its original position.  If your skin remains somewhat elevated after being pulled up and released, you may be dehydrated.  So of course, after watching this episode, I decide to perform the test on myself.  It was no surprise to discover that I need to be drinking more water.  The problem is this: what goes in must come out and the coming out part does not always come at the most convenient times, especially during the night.  And for those of us who spend a good part of the day on the road, there is the additional challenge of finding a place to complete this equation.   I am sure there must be a simple solution to this H2O dilemma.  How do you make sure you are getting enough water each day?
