What happens when you take the bull by the horns and dive head first into exercise and start rehearsals whilst working a day job? You get run down very quickly and catch the plague that's hit Chicago. I am feeling very whiney right now. It's hard to work so hard on yourself and try to be so good to your body and conscious of your health only to get knocked down, but it happens. Sunday night I had an eight hour sinus migraine-no bueno. I am snotty and congested and miserable. Wah! My aprtment is so hot it feels like a sauna. Alas, I can't leave to go walk around a cold store because as fate would have one of my side mirrors on my car broke and I can't drive.

Enough of that.

What am I doing to get better?

Lotsa water
Some G2 (for electrolytes)
My own concotion of healing soup:
Brown Miso Broth
A carrot
A little purple onion
Herbs (basil/sage/chives from my garden)
Lots of greens (collards)
It's very comforting and it's keeping my strength up as I try to work from home today. (of course I am eating it lukewarm since it's a sauna at my house.)


  1. I'm so sorry. Hope you feel better soon.

  2. Just so you know, P isn't experiencing any signs of sickness yet so I don't think you did any harm by holding him!

    Also, I remember when Dana linked to your blog after you met your weight loss goal. I was so impressed!

  3. Hope you're feeling better!! I read your post on Mandy's blog today - what kind of veggie juice do you drink? Do you make it or is it V8? Just curious...I should be doing the same thing!
