5 coffees, I know, I know, I mustn't but I just needed the bit of zing. One green tea and two glasses of water. I won't have any more coffee today. I hope!

Well done Katty. I have no idea how much I have drunk today. We have been out all day and I am totally exhausted so I won't even try to fill anything in until tomorrow.

Good to hear you are feeling better, it must have been a shock to the system.

I'm up to 7 glasses already and it's only lunchtime.

Ah, it sounds as if whatever they were trying to get into you didn't go into the vein or artery. It's nothing to do with you, but not being properly done. You might have a very black and blue arm for a while. Hope you are feeling better now. You poor thing. emoticon

on the 23rd 5 glasses, and yesterday only 2. I didn't want to drink too much as I had my tomography and thought I didn't want to feel like going when I was in there!
But then something went wrong in the procedure and I eneded up with a Swartznegger arm, vomiting, nausea, fainted. So, the rest of the day was to rest and sleep, almost no food all day and almost no water.

Feeling a little better today. Two waters, two forbidden coffees, and two pots of very weak black tea. I'm swimming and it's only two o'clock.

Thank you, I've been taking cold and flu tablets and they are keeping the drips at bay. I've also been upping the fluids which means many trips to the loo but worth it to get the bad bugs out of the system. I've found out that for my height and weight I need about ten glasses of fluid to keep everything good. I must try and find that site again.

You are both sounding much better and chipper. emoticon

Sorry about your cold Sandy ... I'm just getting over mine, I hope that I didn't pass it on !!! LOL Also sorry to rain on your parade with the coffee, as long as you drink plenty of water you'll be okay.

Congrats on your water drinking Katty, you're doing a great job.

Now to me, Saturday I drank 8 cups of water, 1 cup of juice and a Southern Comfort and Cola!!! LOL (I know it really doesn't count!)
Today so far 4 cups of water and 1/2 cup of juice.

Have a great week all. I hope we can all shake the 'lurgeys' going around!

I've got a cold today. It started yesterday so I'm on Cold and Flu tablets. Drinking lemon tea to wash out all the bad bacteria, but only sipping so that it does not go right through.

The tap (in the nose) was turned down somewhat today!!! I was still very thirsty all day tho'.
4 cups of water, 2 large cups of green tea and 2 glasses of juice.

Sorry Sandy, but you can't count coffee as water because it is a diuretic.

Someone turned the tap on, in my nose today !!!! Maybe that's why I was so thirsty all day. I had 7 glasses of water, 2 large cups of green tea and one glass of juice.

I hope that the 'tap' is turned down a little tomorrow!!!

I've been home from work with a head cold today so not much eating but I did keep my fluids up. I've had 7 glasses of water and one glass of juice so far. Not too bad when I spent a lot of the day asleep!

Well done Audrey and Jenye. It is certainly more difficult to drink cold water in the winter, even adding a little warm water and a squeeze of lemon makes it go down a little easier and the lemon helps to clear everything out. We are all doing great, woohoo!

I used to be very good and drank 8 to 12 glasses of water every day. Now that it's so cold I find it more of a struggle (I also don't exercise much so am not getting the water I used to drink then).
I drink at least 4 glasses of pure water every day and some days up to 8 glasses. I also eat soup, drink juice, and most days have a hot chocolate drink, made with mostly water.

From what I have read Jenye a variety of things count towards fluid intake. In Winter I prefer a warm drink to cold and will often have green tea and count it as water. It is also an antioxidant so it is doubly good for us. This is what SP has to say.

What counts as water?

The latest recommendations from the Institute of Medicine of the National Academy of Science, Dietary Reference Intake for Electrolytes and Water says..."The fluids consumed do not have to be only water. Individuals can obtain their fluids from a variety of beverages and foods. Contrary to popular opinion, consumers do not need to consume "eight glasses of water a day" to meet their fluid needs.

However, Becky (SP Dietitian) encourages people trying to lose weight to drink additional water whenever possible. It helps to cleanse the body when weight loss and fat breakdown is occurring. It also helps to keep the hands and mouth busy, so snacking is less. This is a form of behavior modification. Many people feel better when at least 4-6 glasses of plain old H2O is consumed to help meet total fluid needs.

Well done on the water and green tea.

Today I have had 6 glasses of water and 3 green teas. That makes 9 in total, I hope that adding the teas was legal but it is fluid after all. emoticon

Water, water everywhere and all we have to do is drink.
