For the last two years I have been given the same warning from my doctor “Drink more water!”. I have always been guilty of the fact that I don’t drink enough, not just of water but anything! I have never been a drinker of tea or coffee and now, as a busy Mum of four, I am more likely to grab a quick swig of water whilst I wash up or make the tea than to sit down and enjoy a drink.
Last year I was told by the doctor that my kidney function was very low, so low in fact that I was bordering on having Chronic Kidney Disease, and all of a sudden my lack of fluids became a serious issue. For a while I really tried hard to up my water intake, despite the fact I was suddenly needing to use the bathroom every two minutes, but over the last few months I hold my hands up and admit, I’ve slacked off.
With very low blood pressure and prone to fainting, staying hydrated is key and so for this reason I decided that it was time to stop making excuses and start drinking at least two litres of water a day, every day!
Now everybody knows that I love new stationery, so this beautiful rose gold Kate Spade notebook from Rooi.com was the perfect choice for my To Do List and recording how much water I was consuming each day.
With my Kate Spade water bottle holding 16oz of water, I would need to drink five of these each day to be well over the recommended two litres of water. I figured if I need to be permanently attached to my water bottle it may as well be a stylish one!
I love the glittery hundreds and thousands design of the bottle and the fact that the lid screws off so you can drink from it like an open bottle. I’m not a fan of sports bottles or spouts, I find them really hard to clean and drink from, so this really was perfect.
I’m hoping that with my gorgeous designer bottle and a shiny new notepad I can keep track of my water intake and see some real results over the next few weeks. It’s very hard to make the time for ourselves as parents, but when it comes to your health it is so paramount that we do!
