How many cups of water do you drink a day?

Do you add any fruit to it?

I need to drink more water. Right now, if I get a bottle of water a day, I'm lucky...

I was drinking it like crazy for awhile! With a wedge of lime or lemon. I have one of those plastic-y cups with the lid and straw and I would re-fill it all day long...  But lately, I've been so darn tired that I've been drinking too much coffee throughout the day :/

Anywhere from 2L (at least) to a gallon (or more if working outside or some such).

great ideas

Quoting kmrtigger:

It's all I drink anymore. I do drink crystal light sometimes. But my new favorite way to drink water is with fruit added to it and left to sit in the fridge a day or two before drinking it.

Trying taking a pitcher, slice 2 apples(your choice of brand), and add to the pitcherand add a cinnamon stick. Fill with ice and then add water. The longer it sits, the better the flavor.  After 3 days it tasted like apple pie to me.  And when you run outta water you can add more for a couple more days before changing out the apples and cinnamon stick. Want more intense cinnamon flavor?Stick a cinnamon stick in your glass for each cup you pour.

Another good one is filling a pitcher full of sliced starwberries and lemons, adding ice and filling with water. YUM!

Lemons, limes and oranges sliced with ice and water is another tasty one.

All these waters can be made a left on the counter with ice all day. Use a pretty pitcher and it looks so good you can't help but pour a glass every time you walk past. And since all these are flavored with natural flavors, no added sugars, they are calorie free.

I'd say 10-16, I have a water bottle equal to 3 cups of water and I honestly lose track of how many times I fill it.
