There are two things that I am a big wuss about – being cold and being sick. And right now, I’m kind of both. I guess my epic hangover was partially the start of a cold. My head feels better, but my throat is scratchy and I’ve been sneezing all day. I really wish that if I was going to get sick, it wouldn’t be over a holiday.

Sicky pathetic face:


I tried to stock up on Vitamin C. Does this really work?


Even though I had soup for lunch, soup was definitely in order again for dinner. I decided to make Italian Wedding Soup from my Trader Joe’s cookbook.


I used meatless meatballs and spinach because the lovely Kroger next door did not have Swiss Chard.


Twas pretty good. I’m not sure that I like the taste of the meatless balls. Maybe it would be better with a different brand? Or perhaps with Turkey Meatballs? I also had my fair share of Pita Crackers that went unpictured. Not sure if this is going to cure my cold but I really would like to feel better by Thursday night. I don’t have any plans, but I want to ring in the New Year right and not sick.

I think I’m going to skip the gym tonight. I never know if I should go or not when I’m under the weather. I’ve always heard that if the sickness is above the neck, which it is, it’s fine to go, but I don’t really see myself getting a decent workout right now. I managed to go yesterday and did a half-assed 30 minutes on the elliptical. Hopefully I’ll feel better tomorrow because I have a 2 miler, a 5 mile speedwork session and a 6-miler on the agenda for the week.

What are your plans for New Years Eve?

  1. Oh Lee, hope you feel better soon! You look so pitiful!! 😦

    No solid NYE plans yet… Andrew and I are kinda in a disagreement about it – he wants to go hang out and drink with friends over an hour away and I want to just stay in. We keep going round and round about the pros and cons of both… we seem to do this every year for NY’s 😦 What about YOU?! 🙂

    • How would you get home if you did that? That would be my concern!

      I think we’re going to go out to dinner in East Atlanta and then stay out until midnight. Jason has to work the next day, so we won’t stay out much later.

  2. oh girly! I hope you feel better. Soup always makes me feel better. Get lots of rest and fluids!!

  3. Aw, poor you…your sad face pulls at my heartstrings. I hope you feel better soon! Soup should do the trick! Stay warm!

  4. I hope you feel better soon! Lots of fluids and rest.

    No plans for NYE….Staying in and making appetizers. Kind of a tradition for us.

  5. FEEL BETTER CHICA!! take it easy.

  6. Hope you feel better 🙂

    I have to be up 5:45 on NYD so we’re probably not doing anything terribly exciting!

  7. Just dinner with my boyfriend 🙂 I’m so excited to have a low-key New Years Eve. There’s no better way to bring in a new year! 🙂

    I hope you feel better. I totally have the same struggle when I’m sick, but usually it’s best to just take it easy!

  8. OH NO!!!! That’s the worst!! I hope you feel better!

  9. Feel better! Chug that vitamin C!

  10. Sorry you’re sickie. 😦

    Is it rotten that I lol’d at “epic hangover”??

  11. yucccck! I hope you feel better soon. I hate being sick when there’s so much going on…ya know? That said, I wish I could take your sickness from you, because I’m takin’ it easy this NYE! I’ve gone “out” every year since I was 18 or 19, and I’m just ready for a break this year. Plus, I want to stay warm and not be hungover Friday. 🙂
