how do you keep track of your water intake?

I work an office job 9 hours a day so in order to keep track I write on my reusable water bottle. At the end of the day I wash it and the writing comes off. This is today so far. I usually drink 4-5 of these. I weigh 198 so I try to drink a bit more than my bodies weight in water.

I carry a water bottle every where and drink 1-2 gallons a day.

I do a little bit on myfitnesspal.

I drink around 4 24 oz water bottles which is more than half my body weight.

I was tracking all my "intake" in a planner - but now I just try to drink all the water in my water bottle 3x a day.

I downloaded myfitnesspal and I cant get past the log in because every screen name I pick is already been chosen. Grr and I have been trying for a week now.

I would delete it and readd it. Pick a screen name with a lot of numbers.

I use a blender bottle, I fill it to the 20oz mark three times a day and I drink an 8 oz glass of water in the morning and 2 8oz's at night. Makes it pretty easy for me to keep up with.

I guess I don't really keep track...I have a 24oz water bottle. I need to drink four of them to hit half my body weight in oz, but I know I drink way more than four! I mentally take a note of how many up until my minimum limit and then everything after that is just bonus.
