I can’t say that I feel any better, but at least I got out of the house today! I mean, there’s only so much crying you can do!
I successfully made it to Whole Foods this morning! Wahoo! Baby steps.
At Whole Foods, I bought some intestine-friendly goodies: gluten-free bread and pasta, bananas, and a couple of probiotic Kombucha drinks. (I know it takes awhile for probiotics to work, but I figured they couldn’t hurt. Plus, I was thirsty!)
Marie invited me over her townhouse to sit by the pool, so I brought my groceries with me to make a quick lunch when I arrived. I started with two slices of gluten-free toast with peanut butter, and then later ate a banana with a little more peanut butter spread on it. This meal didn’t really agree with me. Maybe it was the peanut butter?
Once I had some food in my stomach, Marie and I hit the pool. (Thankfully, the bathroom was close by!)
We chatted, read magazines, and relaxed in the sunshine. Our nice, little afternoon helped take my mind off being sick— at lease for a little awhile.
(Runner’s World is helping to keep me positive and motivated. If I can’t run, at least I can read about it! I’m already plotting my glorious return!)
For dinner, I whipped up some gluten-free pasta to which I added a little bit of butter and grated Parmesan. The gluten-free pasta actually tasted much better than I expected. It was a lot chewier than regular pasta. I liked it.
Relaxing (hopefully) for the rest of the evening! Good night!
