Not enough. A couple of glasses a day from the tap. I'm definitely working on increasing how much I drink.
by MiLeenaLeeOctober 5, 2012 at 9:39 AMDirectly PP I drank a lot of water, but then I started to get exhausted and it slowly turned into a lot of caffeine. I keep saying every day I need to drink more water, guess I will start today!
October 5, 2012 at 9:41 AMI drink either tap or bottled, just not enough. I also drink alot of tea and pop along with some milk. I might be lucky to get two glasses of water down today.
I usually drink alot of water but recently have been having alot of iced tea instead (not good, but i need the caffeine), i just started cutting out the iced tea yesterday and i got my eight glasses of water in, i prefer tap water, i usually have two cups of tea in the morning and water and iced tea thruout the day

I drink about 8 glasses of actual water per day plus crystal light. I may have one soda a day and then, of course, the 4 cups of coffee LOL. I drink filtered water, have a filter on the tap.
I love this challenge!
