I suddenly remembered at about 10pm on Sunday but decided that trying to drink 1.6 litres of water, so close to bed time, might lead to a nasty accident.
Other days I have been very good. On my desk now proudly sit my nalgene and bobble bottle. Combined, they make up exactly the ammount of water I'd like to drink every day. What I have learnt this week is that I have very sporadic drinking patterns. Some days I'll meet my quota without even noticing and others, like Sunday, I'll realise all I've had to drink that day has been two cups of tea. And possibly some Gin.
You, dear readers, have been much better at the challenge than I. One of my friends posted on twitter that in just one week she's noticed a massive difference; she has more energy, feels less foggy and is sleeping better! Isn't that fantastic?!
She is using a brilliant app called 'Hydro' - which helps you work out how much water YOU should be drinking. The National Migraine Centre and The Migraine Trust are both going to get back to me re amounts next week - but I'm realising it's a little like asking 'how long is a piece of string?'. As with all things migraines, it's very individual.
So this next week I shall be using the app (which includes cups of tea etc) to help nudge me on in my quest to become a regular drinker of water!
I'd love to hear how others are getting on - and thanks for all the support! x
