One of the best things about Crystal Light is that it comes in so many flavors! They carry four different lines in which you can pick precisely what you need: Refreshment, Tea, Enhanced (with extra nutrients and antioxidants), and Sunrise (with caffeine if you need to jumpstart your day).

We generally stick to the Refreshment label. And the choices are: (big breath here) lemonade, pink lemonade, fruit punch, cranberry apple (my fave), iced tea, raspberry ice, pineapple orange, strawberry kiwi, and strawberry-orange-banana. We drink it usually with lunch and dinner and then my kids walk around with lovely red mustaches on their upper lips for the rest of the day.

I drink mine with a straw. :)

Yesterday when I started my Water Challenge, I have to tell you I had no problem getting in my 8-10 glasses of water. But I was home where it was very easy and convenient for me to grab, drink, and refill water bottles during the day.

Today, Tuesday, I start my college class and lab (Anatomy & Physiology II--pray that I'll have strength!) and I have a feeling that it will be a bit harder to consume my water because I'll be away from home for 6 hours. I'll have my water bottle of course, but who knows how convenient it will be to refill it during class. I don't necessarily care for the idea of sloshing up to the Science building with 3 water bottles in my backpack. (Do college students still carry backpacks? It's been a looooong time since I last was enrolled in school.)

**Speaking of water, as I type this, I just heard my 5 year old son (who is supposed to be taking a bath) yell "CANONBALL!" at the top of his lungs and then jump into the tub. This is my life.**

So far so good for the challenge. I drank 8.5 glasses of water yesterday and walked on the treadmill for 30 minutes. How are you doing on your challenge? You can check out other BlogHer Water Challenge participants and their stories here.

I don't usually have a problem getting my water in each day. I *heart* water. But we do drink Crystal light (usually lemonade or raspberry lemonade) anytime we are at my MILs and Grandma is there. She is diabetic and Crystal Light works!

Would the tea count as an extra glass of water?
