While driving for Uber full-time, my health was definitely taking a backseat. I started at 4:00 in the morning and drove until 10:00 or 11:00 am, came home, ate lunch, took a nap, and then went back out again in the late afternoon. I would stop at McDonald’s and get dinner on my way home at 7:00 or 7:30… eat, go to bed, and start the whole thing over again the next morning.
Between the junk food, lack of exercise, and exposure to hundreds of people each week, my immune system was so compromised I contracted the mumps for the 2nd time in my life (that’s not supposed to happen). I’d just started driving again after being home for 2 weeks, when I developed a sore throat, cough, chills, headache, and extreme fatigue.
I didn’t qualify for COVID-19 testing, but I had every symptom, so I started self-quarantining 4 days before the California governor issued stay-at-home orders. 3 weeks later, I finally started feeling better.
If I’ve learned anything over the past 2 months, it’s that building a healthy immune system is one of the biggest gifts we can give to not only ourselves, but to the world as a whole. Please follow along as I embark on my biohacking/health-building journey… As a Pepsi-guzzling, Krispy Kreme-loving, sugar junkie, I’m going to need lots of encouragement and support!
