Healing The Body; Water Therapy

It sucks when you fall of your own bandwagon. What am I talking about? It's the water therapy.
I've been preaching about drinking at least 2 litres or more of water to keep hydrated yet for about 3 months now, I haven't even been able to go beyond a litre a day! I know some will think I'm being vain as you struggle with even a 500ml sachet. However, I've usually been taking 2-3 litres a day so that explains my sorrow Lol.
Anyway, since I've realized what is going on, I've decided to get back on track. Now, I need to identity why I fell off in the first place. Simple answer; I stopped putting in a conscious effort! Been able to take 3 litres of water a day requires a deliberate action on your part. You have to be fully alert when it comes to when to drink the water and how much.
My recent wake up call was in the form of this eye infection. Drinking water flushes out toxins from our bodies and since I was using eye drops, I should have realized that it is a form of medication that will be excreted eventually by fair or foul means! Not sweating enough is something that comes with the wet season so the toxins will have to be through fluids. The washroom hardly sees me so it means my body was storing up all these drugs- well, that's my lay man's logic.
To get back to what I was doing, I'm making the conscious effort to drink one sachet of water in the morning, noon, evening and night whilst I wait for my 2 litre bottle( I mean an empty 2 litre coke bottle). That bottle is a huge factor in my success so this new technique will require an active move to the kitchen to achieve my outcome.
Expect an update in a month's time. I'm off to my group to launch the drink up challenge again.
