My initial problem with water came with my commute. I would drink lots of water in the mornings, probably half of the required amount and my commutes became torturous. I literally squirmed most of the way to work and had to RUN to the restroom. If there was a wreck during the commute, then I prayed and prayed that I didn't have an "accident". I tried to decrease the amount of water and started missing my requirement of baseline intake. Secondly, my job doesn't allow me to just "go use it" whenever, which again meant I had to do a poised pee pee dance .
Then I fell into this I hate water phase. The taste of it made me barf. I believe it was the plastic bottle so I ditched it. I bought this oh so cute stainless steel water bottle, problem solved. However, I still had the work issue. NOW, I have an assistant and things are better when I have "to go".
I'm glad but now I have to repair four months of dehydration. I've started to add a bit of Raspberry Lemonade Crystal Light to my work water but all others are warm with lemon in the mornings, and ice cold in the afternoons.
