I'm trying to limit my fluids and also food because I have to. I'm on dialysis and I have to watch my weight like a hawk. Basically, whatever I eat or drink ends up making me heavier and I cannot be more than 3 kilos heavier otherwise I'll be in trouble. My blood pressure will drop and I'll faint during treatment if I extract more than 3 kilos.
Today, I went to the mall. I had a turkey and cheese sandwich on whole wheat bread. It was delicious but a little on the salty side. I had some iced water with it. That was supposed to be my lunch but after and hour or two, I was still hungry. So, I bought a little salmon teriyaki rice bowl.
Then I was thirsty, I needed something cold! They were having this promotion on fresh fruit smoothies. Pay Rm25 and you get membership for 2 years (entitles you to 20% off their drinks), a RM10 voucher which I used immediately and a refillable bottle, which you have to bring in order to get the 20% discount on their drinks.
So, after buying that I decided to take a cab home coz I needed to get my drink into the fridge within an hour. But after I got home, I consumed about more than half the bottle.......oops!
I'll have to take less fluids during dinner, I guess. I'm trying!
