Can I take your drink order?

Okay, so I'm TRYING to pay attention to what I drink EVERYDAY. Basically I suck at staying hydrated. Unless I'm pregnant or nursing.

If I'm not careful I'll drink my usual one cup of coffee and then nothing until dinner when I have a glass of milk with the kids, then a beer or wine relaxing on the couch. My dh catches me all the time. At dinner he'll ask me if i have a cup for my milk- if I say no he knows I haven't drunk anything that day.

I have passed out in restaurants, Wal-mart, and at my in-laws. Embarrasing.

What do you drink during the day? Why?

Sometimes for breakfast I might have a small glass of OJ.  During my work day I always have several glasses of water.  With dinner I have milk probably 99% of the time.  Sometimes a soft drink if the kids and I are having a pizza night, etc.  I am REALLY bad at getting enough water during the day too.  I've started trying the flavored waters too and that helps some.

I'm not good at drinking much either :( My suggestions that have helped me- Go to a tea place that lets you try tea. I love herbals, and you can make a pitcher of cold tea and keep it in the fridge and it stays fresh for about 24 hours. If you make it you can keep track of how much you drink. (We have Teavanna's on our malls that do this, or there's a specialty store in Portage, MI called "Chocolatea" that will do this as well. WAY better then the bagged tea!)
And then buy a bottle to cart water (or tea!) around in, and just keep it with you. This has helped me :)
