Drinking 1.5 liters of Water a Day

oh gosh diet & exercise is definitely a battle. I've fallen off & gotten back on. Ok well honestly I fell off eating right and never got back on, I had muffins and cupcakes for breakfast on Friday and other days & weeks haven't been better. But..... i've gotten back on the wagon of personal training.

My trainer is pretty cool, and really funny. At first I used to be sore for days, but now it's not bad, I'm guessing that means I'm getting better.

He told me to not worry so much about my diet but start small by drinking one & a half liters of water a day. It was too hard to do the math, and i didn't succeed. So he told me to just go to the grocery store & buy a 1.5 liter bottle of water.

I'm sure there are benefits to this. Right now I'm still struggling with finishing 1.5liters of water & tomorrow like the rest of the world I'm going to try to eat healthy.

Tip: I heard the water at Whole Foods tastes good & you can take a bottle there and fill it up. (I haven't tried that)
each bottle is 1.5 liters

So here's what 1.5 liters of water looks like! Would any of you like to join me in this task, he said you're allowed to add sweeteners? what's the reason for drinking this much water? Or are you already good, and you already drink this much water daily?

ps: thanks to google i just found out that 8 glasses of water = approximately 1.89 or 2 liters (my math professors must be proud).

pps: Happy Memorial Weekend & I appreciate the comments & different perspectives in the last post


  1. I actually read somewhere that you don't have to drink 1.5L of water a day. We did renal phys this semester so maybe that were i got that info. I'm not sure. But notice the more you drink, the more you pee. Have you wondered why? I guess someone came up with that figure to make sure people drank enough water but there's really no medical benefit to drinking 1.5Ls a day.

  2. I swear I would be size 0 if I stopped drinking coke, or not eat chocolate any more...I love coke! Kinda wish I did the other coke so I would be a size 0, but then again, I don't think I want to be a size 0, maybe a 8. I like the #8...

    I am in, I will start today, right after I finish my Arizona cranberry juice ice tea...
    (Did you know Arizona teas are not even made in AZ? I was shocked to find this out...They are made in New York, OMG, now I am wondering where Snapple is made)

    So, just drink 8 glasses of water, which = 1.89 lts?

  3. we're actually supposed to drink that much water because it helps to flush out toxins in your system & stay hydrated. I'm guilty of not drinking as much water as I ought to, but I try to keep a glass near me at work/home and keep it filled as often as possible. Adding a little lemon/lime juice to water helps give it some flavor without adding too many calories, and herbal tea counts as water (since it doesn't have any caffeine like black or green tea to dehydrate you). For the really short time that I remembered to drink 8 glasses a day, my skin looked better than usual!

    hope you're able to start this new habit :)

  4. wowzers, I always try to drink my 8 glasses of water, but It's very hard If only I grew up loving water as child. I think i'm gonna try to do this as well . . . good luck!

  5. I'm drinking water right now. Well, actually I'm typing right now but I am constantly drinking water all day long. It's like my addition. I would say that water keeps your bowels moving. I know, that's yucky, but you have to do it.
    Good luck. The world is watching you. m.

  6. thanks for the update--definitely gotta go to whole foods and try out their water!

  7. Drinking liquids make the skin glow but sometimes
    even drinking I am too lazy to drink.

    I can't wait to see your great figure after you all do
    your training exercise and diet. Please post pics ok.

  8. I eat a lot of fruit and veg, and if I drank that much water I'd not only be on the toilet every 5 mins, but I'd have the runs too!

    Missed your posts!

  9. I drink like 100 ounces a day anyway so i'm here for support. You will learn to LOVE water.
