Drink water!

Monday, January 13, 2014

This morning I had an appt to give blood at 6AM. They had a lot of trouble getting the full pint and had to stop. Seems I was dehydrated and my body wouldn't give up any more blood! I never heard of that happening but the nurse explained that it is common. They said as we get older AND because it's winter we need to drink more water. When it's summer no one needs to be told to drink fluids but in the winter we slack off. I felt bad that my pint was short and could only be used in the lab but I know better for the next time...
I still got a LB. of coffee from Dunkin Donuts and a T-shirt for trying! emoticon

    plus, you dehydrate overnight. I always weigh a couple pounds less in the morning than at bedtime.

    I STILL have to remind myself to drink and I've been working on the habit for YEARS.
