I am tardy with my thoughts on my own Hydration Challenge, but meh, it’s been a big week. As a recap- I set myself the target to actually drink enough water every day. I based ‘enough’ on some online health calculators and my fitbit and went with an 1800ml a day target, based on being […]Read More The Lowdown on The Hydration Challenge
Day Five Day off for medical nonesense and outlaw visits Predicted High Temp: 33 degrees 0930: I am in the hottest waiting room in Christendom. Good tactic to ease strain on the NHS by killing off some vulnerables with heat stroke.

On my second coffee though I vaguely recall interviewing someone once who went on about their addiction to routine and his insistence on drinking a full pint of […]Read More The Hydration Challenge- Day 2
Day One Normal work day, up at 0545, thrilled beyond measure to be back to the day job after a week long holiday. Predicted temperature: 31 degrees. 0750: Remembered my bottle, enjoyed bemused comments from co workers as to why I have ‘a salad’ in my drink. One slice of a lemon and one mint […]Read More The Hydration Challenge- Day 1
