I actually love water. I must have water near me at all times. I cannot stand being thirsty. I actually get a little anxious if I forget my water bottle. When I hear about people having trouble getting enough water because they don't like it, I cannot relate. I prefer water over anything else! Even coffee. And I love me some coffee!
I do drink a lot of coffee. I can drink coffee from morning to night without issue, especially in winter. I usually have coffee before a shower in the morning; thank goodness for the Keurig! I can also drink coffee right up until bedtime and have no trouble sleeping (except for the inevitable peeing). I just love coffee; good, strong, black coffee. I'm pretty sure that drinking a gallon of coffee per day is not a good idea. 5 to 6 cups can't be that bad, though. But by always having water near me, I tend to drink less coffee automatically. And that's easier than just trying to drink less. I also have a rule that I can have no Diet Coke, another drink I love, until I've had at least 64 ounces of water. My coworkers think I'm strange.
Some people say drinking water will help fill you up so you eat less. That doesn't work for me, though. Excuse me, but how does DRINKING a tasteless beverage make me want to EAT less yummy food??? Answer: it does not. But drinking water does make me drink less of the other stuff that's maybe not as healthy if only for the fact that I can only drink so much in one day. After all, I do not want to be up all night peeing. Peeing in the night messes with my sleep! And I love sleep more than water, coffee and Diet Coke combined!
What about you? Love water? Hate water?
