Water, Water Everywhere

I'm on a mission to drink more water. My forehead has been breaking out lately. Last night I was really thirsty for some reason, and drank 3 glasses of water before I went to bed. When I woke up, my forehead was almost totally clear! I know water will help my hair growth and overall health too. I'd like to lose another 5-10 lbs, so water will help that too.

It's not going to be hard to increase my H2O intake. I like the taste of it, and have just about altogether stopped drinking juices and sodas over the past year. My water has to be room temperature though- I can't drink it as fast when it's cold and I'm cold-natured in general. I used to drink a lot of water when I was in NC (at least 70 oz a day), but I stopped a few months ago when I moved and started my new job because I didn't want to be running to the bathroom every 20 minutes. It's worth it, though, if I'm going to have clear skin and pretty hair. I've heard that you lose the urge to go to the bathroom once you've been drinking a lot of water for a while. I try to stop drinking water at 3pm, so I don't have to pee on my way home! Now, I'm going to try to drink most of my water in the morning. It's only 9:30 and I've drank 2 glasses at home and a bottle at work- and have had to haul ass to ladies' room 3 times, lol.

Drinking water is such a hard habit for me to make. My goal for September was to drink at least 4 glasses a day. I only reach that goal 3-4 days of the week... your post motivated me to get up and get another glass of water right now! =)
