Sunday: Notice a bit of difficulty swallowing breakfast wrap at Cafe Champignons. Hmm...
Monday: Wake up with sore throat, but body feels fine. Take it easy most of the day and go to yoga at night. Fall asleep feeling optimistic.
Tuesday: Sore throat still there, but decide to go for a run anyway. Feel great after run! Notice some sniffling and a nasal-y tone in my voice. Choose to ignore.
Wednesday: Wake up feeling like CRAP. Moan, wrap myself up in quilt tighter, and immediately fall back to sleep. Wake up a few hours later to a text message. 1 PM. Drag myself out of bed, pull on leggings and jacket, and make the short trek to Whole Foods and Whole Body. Pick up all kinds of goodies. This is what Operation: Get Well looks like in Carolyn-land:
(kale, coconut water, OJ, lemons, throat coat tea, Riiiiicolaaa!, Badger Winter Wonder Balm (for chest), Emergen-C, Immune Support vitamins, and antibacterial spray)
Post-WF Run: Guzzle down a cup of freshly squeezed OJ spiked with Emergen-C (I cannot get that stuff down with just water. In OJ? Delish.) Began chopping kale and make soup. Retreat back to bed and beloved laptop.
Couple hours later... Make croutons and ladle soup. Lunch + Dinner = Linner!
I am obsessed with reusable cups with straws. Obsessed.
Am now lying in bed avec laptop, iPhone, liquids, and Criminal Minds. I want to feel BRAND SPANKIN' NEW by Friday!
What's in your Operation: Get Well kit?
