  1. It’s funny – I know the benefits of drinking water ,and I know how important it is, and yet there are some days I just can’t bring myself to do it. I know realistically I will not get half my weight, I will aim for 100oz and see what I can do 🙂 I’m sure I’ll feel better!

  2. Since I’ve returned from deployment I’ve noticed that drinking water has dropped significantly. Lets see if I can raise to the challenge and get rehydrated! 😀

  3. My partner and I stumbled over here coming from a different website and thought I might as well check things out.

    I like what I see so i am just following you. Look forward to looking over your web
    page yet again.
