[tweetmeme source=”elizabethev” only_single=false]My body celebrated the second day of summer by coming down with a cold. Quite rude, if you ask me. With the weather being so hazy, hot and humid I would much rather be up at the pool than zonked out on the sofa.
After a few days of sniffling and wondering if I had accidentally swallowed a knife, I am starting to feel better. I wonder though, can I blame this cold for the fact that I attempted to meet my girlfriends at the wrong restaurant on Friday night? I was quite proud of myself for being early and snagging the best table in the house, until I realized my error. The waiter thought I had been stood up and insisted that my soda water was on the house. It was rather mortifying.
Clearly my body (and my brain) could use a time out. And perhaps, some vitamins. I know there are those who are anti-vitamins and supplements. In an ideal world, I’d get everything my body needs from my diet. While I am not a doctor, a scientist, an astronaut, nor an RD, I do know this for sure:
- My diet is far from perfect.
- Vitamins will only work if I, um, actually take them.
And I often forget to take them. Kelly reminded me to take yesterday’s multivitamin and vegetarian DHA (sort of like fish oil, minus the fish), but I am not certain that nooding around on Twitter is the most reliable system for ensuring I take them daily.
So I started thinking about my daily routine. What’s one thing I never, ever forget to do? Load up on the mascara. I also find that planning out my week each Sunday, whether it’s meetings, meals or workouts, really helps. You know those pill holder things that
old people the most experienced members of our society use?
I now own a sweet purple one. I filled the week’s worth of soft gels this morning (which reminded me of that pebble game, Mancala, that we used to spend hours playing at the beach), and tucked the container into my makeup bag, right next to the mascara.
I think I am on to something. Maybe.

What’s one thing you never forget to do?
