125 of 365


One of the (many) things I do is that I'm a school governor. On May 5th I went along to a training session which looked at the data generated by the various tests pupils do, and what on earth it all means!

As part of eating more healthily, I'm trying to drink more water. I may not manage the recommended 2 litres a day (although I guess I do take in more water within the other drinks I have and even the food I eat - I'm sure I've read recently that the 2 litres includes water from these sources too!) but I've been filling a 750ml bottle from our filter tap each day and at least trying to make sure I drink that much. I've managed it most days, and I did manage it on the 5th :-)

Good on you for drinking the water - I love it and drink quite a bit each day. Blogger is having troubles with my comments - I tried three times on the wordle post and it wouldn't let me :-(

Mel, how do you find time to do All These Things? Will there be a post of your sleep-chart sometime?

I had a feeling "they" had said two litres was more than enough and here's an article which includes the fact you can include coffee/tea in that amount. As one who rarely drinks plain water I agree!

The chiroprator I work for is BIG on drinking plenty of water. His guideline is that you should drink half your body weight in ounces per day. I've learned to enjoy drinking water - used to avoid it and go for iced tea or soda years ago.

There's a book called "You're Not Sick, You're Thirsty" by F. Batmanghelidj, M.D that may be of interest...

My hubby has just become a school Governor! How much work!!!
Re drinking - you have to feel for my poor 14 year old daugher who has a kidney disorder and is required to drink 4 litres a day!!! I don't know how she does it!
