I'm in Misty! I will try to do the recommended 64 ounces per day. WalMart has a big insulated mug that some of the ladies at work are buying and it holds 64 ounces and will keep water cold throughout the day. When it is filled in the morning you know that if it is empty by night that you have had your recommended amount. I think I will pick one up the next time I am there.

I did some research online and it looks like tea isn't suppose to sub for water because tea has a mild diuretic (makes you pee,lol) in it. I do tend to substitute it for water in the evenings though. I love iced tea with my supper.

Thanks for this fun challenge Misty, it is a great idea.

I'm in. There was a link to see how much water you need to drink in a previous thread.. I need like 13 glasses a day. I am going to need some kind of 12 step program because my back teeth are going to be floating!!!!!!!

Good idea Misty
