Done. Jaq, hows the drinking going?

Jaquaia

Not great. I need to start upping it from a litre a day

Suzi
07-03-19, 01:55 PM
How are you doing Jaq?

Jaquaia
07-03-19, 03:32 PM
Only had quarter of a bottle of water but made a point of getting a drink as soon as I got back.

magie06
07-03-19, 03:46 PM
Yes, up to date here. The sun is shining at the moment so I got as far as the end of the green and back. Drinking is fine, by the way.

Suzi

Getting up to do it all now. My energy levels are hovering around zombie level at the moment

magie06
08-03-19, 02:15 PM
One of my favorite Cure songs. Everything okay here.

Suzi
08-03-19, 04:23 PM

ooo Jaq....


DRINK!!!!!

Jaquaia
08-03-19, 08:16 PM
Nearly hit a litre. Still not enough but at least I'm consistent

Mira
08-03-19, 08:18 PM
Just half a litre left. You can do it.

Suzi
08-03-19, 08:18 PM
Woohoo! That means you can get more than a litre in if you keep going... Go on! You can do it!

Suzi
09-03-19, 10:29 AM

Well done Jaq!

Everyone else up to date?

magie06
10-03-19, 03:57 PM
Yes. Up to date here. Emma suggested taking a drink to bed for when I'm getting up in the morning. She thinks it might help my b/p.

Suzi
10-03-19, 09:35 PM
That sounds sensible.

Suzi
11-03-19, 10:25 AM
Morning! So... Drink? Meds? Food?

Suzi
11-03-19, 08:42 PM
Well done!

Everyone else up to date?

Jarre
12-03-19, 12:24 PM
Drank 5 cups of tea so far, took meds this morning, some minestrony soup in work microwave and I am pacing.

Jaquaia
12-03-19, 12:44 PM
5 cups of tea??? My bladder is screaming at the thought!!!

Jarre
12-03-19, 12:56 PM
I don't have a pint mug at work so have to put up with inferier smaller cups :P

magie06
12-03-19, 01:16 PM
Meds - check! Food - check! Drinks - a litre and a half so far! Exercises - check!

Jaquaia
12-03-19, 01:20 PM
I've had half a glass and thought I was doing well!!!

Suzi
12-03-19, 03:20 PM
Well done everyone!

Jaq - the dietician I saw today told me off for not drinking enough.... So... Drink?

Jaquaia
12-03-19, 03:25 PM
Had half a litre so far. That's bloody good for me!!!!

magie06
12-03-19, 03:35 PM
Jaq another way of taking in fluids is to eat fruit with a high water content. Examples I can think of are strawberries, grapes, pears, watermelon, galia melon, cucumber, and oranges. If you load up on them, they will increase your water content throughout the day.

Jaquaia
12-03-19, 03:39 PM
I've had a tangerine and a peach! Bonus points?

Jarre
12-03-19, 05:23 PM
I have a water bottle at work I fill up and when on site I take it with me so I can always remain hydrated as sometimes I am working on something and everyone is busy and no tea round done so I have water from the bottle instead My bottle was only 8 and has a plastic infill that you can fill with fruit if you get bored of just water. Like this one mine doesn't have the are you drinking enough marks like this does but is usefull https://www.amazon.co.uk/Water-Bottle-Infuser-Motivational-Hydrate/dp/B017ERGQLI/ref=sr_1_102?keywords=water+bottle&qid=1552411342&s=gateway&sr=8-102

magie06
12-03-19, 05:24 PM
I've had a tangerine and a peach! Bonus points?

Yes, bonus points. But could you try more?

Jaquaia
12-03-19, 06:42 PM
Had 3/4 of a litre so far which is good for me

Strugglingmum
12-03-19, 06:43 PM
I saw a thing on facebook that you put on your water bottle and it assesses your intake.
It says....Don't be a cactus on it....it made me smile.

Jaquaia
12-03-19, 06:44 PM
Yep, Paula tagged me in one of those. Not sure what she was trying to say...

Strugglingmum
12-03-19, 07:11 PM
(rofl)

Paula
12-03-19, 08:46 PM
Yep, Paula tagged me in one of those. Not sure what she was trying to say...

I was trying to say 3/4 litre is not enough. Sorry, was that not clear? (rofl)

Jaquaia
12-03-19, 09:33 PM
(rofl) have already hit a litre for the day!

Suzi
12-03-19, 10:18 PM
1 litre? All day? You're going to have to push it love...

Suzi
13-03-19, 05:46 PM
How's it all going everyone? Sorry have been in and out for appointments and shopping and stuff! Sorry!

Jaquaia
13-03-19, 06:18 PM
Almost at a litre...

Suzi
13-03-19, 09:36 PM
Hope you've broken over that litre by now love...

Jaquaia
13-03-19, 10:18 PM
Nearly. Been studying aphasia, it's fascinating and I get engrossed

magie06
13-03-19, 10:22 PM
I'm totally up to date and I've taken my night meds and will be going up shortly.

Jaquaia
13-03-19, 10:31 PM
Have drank just over a litre. In bed now, forgot it's Thursday tomorrow and I have a driving lesson first thing

Suzi

Paula
14-03-19, 11:07 AM

Jaquaia
14-03-19, 11:09 AM
Just spent the last half of my driving lesson with my heart thumping! That will do for me!!!!

Had a small drink, breakfast and medicated and jabbed!

magie06
14-03-19, 12:14 PM

Jarre
14-03-19, 12:38 PM

Jaquaia
14-03-19, 12:57 PM

Suzi

Not as much drinking as usual, but up to date with everything else.

Suzi

Well done everyone! I'm very proud of you!

Suzi
16-03-19, 08:41 AM
Morning everyone! Meds? Drink? Food? Drink? Dancing and singing along to....

Paula
16-03-19, 08:56 AM
All done!

I know Keith Richards was the main inspiration, but Adam Ant surely must have played a part in Jack Sparrow?? (giggle)

Suzi
16-03-19, 12:38 PM
I'm quite sure he must have! Love a bit of Adam Ant! Always good to make you smile.

Suzi
17-03-19, 11:51 AM
Morning! Sorry I'm late, loads of cleaning up to do and pancakes made.....
So... Meds? Food? Drink? Anyone fancy....

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WYX0sjP6Za8

Jaquaia
17-03-19, 11:52 AM
All done and slowly plodding through my chapter

Suzi
17-03-19, 01:58 PM
How's the drinking going Jaq?

Jaquaia
17-03-19, 02:05 PM
Slowly

Suzi
17-03-19, 02:08 PM
Might you need to drink a whole cup full now? ;)

Jaquaia
17-03-19, 02:25 PM
Would you believe me if I said I'd already drank a full cup??

Suzi
17-03-19, 02:51 PM
Should I? A cup the size of a thimble doesn't count! (rofl)(rofl)

Jaquaia
17-03-19, 03:09 PM
Had about half a glass...

Mira
17-03-19, 03:54 PM
May i ask why its hard to drink enough?

Jaquaia
17-03-19, 03:58 PM
Life long bad habits I think. I hated using the toilets at school so if I didn't drink, I didn't need to.

Mira
17-03-19, 04:00 PM
My mum has the same.

I guess there is no need to talk about why its good for you to drink enough.

The reason i drink enough is it helps with my weightloss.

Suzi
17-03-19, 05:03 PM
Hope you're at least onto glass no 2/3 by now.....

Jaquaia
17-03-19, 05:36 PM
Erm...

Paula
17-03-19, 05:41 PM
Morning! Sorry I'm late, loads of cleaning up to do and pancakes made.....

Suzi
18-03-19, 08:59 AM
MORNING!
Meds? Drink? Food? A bit of a history lesson? (Did you know this song is made up of headlines and history stories from 1948 - 1989?)


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eFTLKWw542g

Paula
18-03-19, 10:03 AM
I did t know that but it all makes sense now!

Jaquaia
18-03-19, 01:01 PM
I've already hit a litre! I should let my parents take me out for lunch more often!!!

Suzi
18-03-19, 01:38 PM
Wow!!! Well done Jaq! I'm seriously impressed!

Suzi
19-03-19, 08:57 AM
Morning! Meds? Drink? Food? Kiss the Rain?

Jaquaia
19-03-19, 09:56 AM
Love that song!!!! (inlove)

Had a small drink. Going out for lunch with J and won't have a choice but to drink...

Suzi
19-03-19, 10:00 AM
Good! Drink Jaq, drink....

Suzi
20-03-19, 10:05 AM
Boo! "Arrgggghhh" I hear you cry! What can it possibly mean? Wave your hands in the air like you just don't care! Whoot, whoot, it's meds, drink and food time!


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MZjAantupsA

OldMike
20-03-19, 10:13 AM
Love that song Suzi, it was worth watching for that red codpiece alone ;)

Jaquaia
20-03-19, 11:37 AM
All done!

Suzi
20-03-19, 11:55 AM
How's the drinking going lovely?

Jaquaia
20-03-19, 11:57 AM
Slowly. I need to make a more conscious effort with it.

magie06
20-03-19, 12:30 PM
2 litres so far. Meds yes and already thinking of lunch.

Paula
20-03-19, 04:27 PM
Slowly. I need to make a more conscious effort with it.

Hows it going?

Jaquaia
20-03-19, 04:35 PM
Still not great. I've gotten too absorbed with uni work... funny really when I' studying the psychology of attention...

Suzi
20-03-19, 08:08 PM
And now? Have you drunk more?

Jaquaia
20-03-19, 08:11 PM
Nearly a litre

Suzi
20-03-19, 08:36 PM
Can you push it to more?

Jaquaia
20-03-19, 10:06 PM
Just about hit a litre. Struggling with it today

OldMike
20-03-19, 10:31 PM
Just about hit a litre. Struggling with it today

That's okay you are with Suzi's subtle hints drinking more fluids/water than you used to, so a big pat on the back.

Suzi
21-03-19, 09:39 AM
Morning! We're over half way through the week! Meds? Drink? Food?Turn up the speakers...


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dyXEKaoCYFQ

Jaquaia
21-03-19, 11:21 AM
Got home from my driving lesson and got a drink of orange juice

Suzi
21-03-19, 01:19 PM
Well done love!

Jaquaia
21-03-19, 07:08 PM
Already at almost a litre and a half!!! Bladder isn't liking it much!!!

magie06
21-03-19, 07:34 PM
I've to have a scan on the 19th April and I have to have a full bladder for it. I've to drink a litre and a half an hour before hand. Oh ye gods, I'd better get a packet of pampers to have in for the day.

Suzi
21-03-19, 09:27 PM
Internal scan? They're not my favourite..

magie06
21-03-19, 10:45 PM
I think so. I've still having problems in my pelvic area so my doctor wants to know what's going on.

Paula
21-03-19, 11:18 PM
Oh sweetie, youre really going through it atm (bear)

Suzi
22-03-19, 08:36 AM
I'm sorry to hear that love. At least they are checking everything out properly.

magie06
22-03-19, 09:42 AM
I've forgotten my antibiotic this morning. It's a pain because I have to take it an hour before or two hours after food. All the rest are with food. I'll take it now.

Suzi
22-03-19, 03:31 PM
Sorry! I've not done this thread today! It's been a manic day here!

Meds? Drink? Food?

Suzi
23-03-19, 12:42 PM
Oh no, late again... Everyone up to date?
Meds? Drink? Food? Hold a chicken in the air?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yZsbT867uEE

Jaquaia
23-03-19, 12:46 PM
Meds, drink and food, yes. Not convinced about holding up chickens though....

I put some fresh orange juice on the shopping order last week and have been having a glass with my breakfast. I seem to do better when we have fruit juice in as it feels natural to drink it with breakfast so I'm drinking earlier in the day. Continuing to buy fruit juice would probably be a good idea in that case!

Suzi
23-03-19, 02:23 PM
That's brilliantly noticed. Well done love!

Suzi
24-03-19, 09:07 AM
Morning!! Meds? Food? Drink?

Jaquaia
24-03-19, 10:34 AM
Yep! Need to get another drink when I go put the next wash in

Suzi
24-03-19, 03:56 PM
More to drink anyone? *looks towards Jaq*

Jaquaia
24-03-19, 04:44 PM
I have no idea why you're looking at me!!! (angel) I'm currently drinking a bottle of Oasis

Suzi
24-03-19, 08:04 PM
How much have you had to drink today?

Jaquaia
24-03-19, 08:16 PM
A litre so far

Suzi
24-03-19, 08:33 PM
Come on Jaq, you can do it! You can drink more than a litre!

Suzi
25-03-19, 07:47 AM
Morning ladies and gents!

Meds? Drink? Food? Singing along loudly to a brilliant protest song?


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ClU3fctbGls

Paula
25-03-19, 10:56 AM
I was all up in the air this morning as I had to take Jess to college, the cleaner was coming and car being picked up for its MOT, all at the same time. But I did get everything sorted eventually ...

Jaquaia
25-03-19, 11:04 AM
She really is an incredible singer/songwriter (inlove)

All done. Just having 5 minutes after my shower before I change the washing over and make my bed

Suzi
25-03-19, 11:48 AM
Well done ladies!

Well done! :)

Jaquaia
26-03-19, 04:03 PM
Drank a litre, need a wee, but you can guarantee that if I go to the toilet, J will finish his appointment and come collect me from the waiting room and with how high his anxiety is, would likely panic if I wasn't here... good job I can cross my legs...

Mira
26-03-19, 04:38 PM
I am sure he knows how lucky he is to have you there.

Suzi
26-03-19, 09:25 PM
