Anyone know good ways (other than adding crystal light or lemon to it) to get in the right amount of water per day?

I will give you some more at another time! If you're interested I bought the book at Barnes & Noble called Cooking Light Fresh Food Fast. It has 300 recipes of soups, salads, sandwiches, meatless main dishes, fish & shellfish, meat, and poultry. It all looks so good and its healthy. There are also some desserts listed throughout. But we've been picking a main and mixing and matching w/ different sides and I love it has calories listed cause its really helped Joe and I keep on track. The food is so good and I'm done w/ 30 minutes!

At some point this weekend do 50 crunches and 25 push-ups (yes the girly way counts lol)
I figured since its the weekend it'll be good to start with a work out challenge and start off slow. Let us all know how you do!

So, yesterday I walked/ jogged for 45 minutes outside and then came in and did my 50 crunches and 25 push-ups. I have to admit, the push-ups were killer and I almost stopped after just 6. I'm weak. lol Its raining today, but if it stops I'd like to head out for a walk.
