So, these three have been with me ever since early Saturday morning.
Tomorrow I’m booked in (again) to give plasma at the mobile Red Cross van. The last time I went to donate, my veins decided to play hide and seek, probably because I hadn’t drunk enough water.
So this weekend I’ve been really diligent. While I didn’t measure exactly how much I drank, I just made sure the bottles were being refilled and emptied by me the whole weekend. I’m hoping it’s enough.
Unfortunately I had super busy week and often, in addition to sleep, the first thing ‘to go’ is my water consumption. I’m so bad at drinking water sometimes particularly when it’s a bit cooler.
I’m not completely convinced that my weekend water binge will be sufficient to make up for a shocking week, but I’ll keep you posted.
