I’m still not feeling 100%. I’m not even sure that I’m feeling 75% although I feel a hell of a lot better than I did yesterday. With me, there is one easy way to tell how sick I actually feel and that’s if I am taking medicine. I am not a big medicine taker, so considering the fact that I took Dayquil every 4 hours yesterday tells you that I really wasn’t feeling well. I do feel a lot better this morning, however. I’m really hoping that I’ll be able to go out to New Years Eve dinner. Okay, I’ll stop droning on about my cold now; I told you that I was a baby when I am sick!
Last night, I wanted comfort food for dinner. Whenever I’m craving comfort food, my go-to is refried beans. I don’t know why; I just really like them! Weird, right? I paired them with some sauteed peppers and a low-carb tortilla that I toasted and made into chips. Oh, and a heaping pile of salsa.
That looks like much more food than it actually was because of the mound of salsa. Jason went the more traditional route and made his into chicken fajitas.
This was his pre-fajita. You get the idea. After dinner, we watched Julie & Julia. I’m going to just say it, I didn’t love this movie. I kind of thought it was boring and Meryl Streep’s voice as Julia annoyed the hell out of me. (I know that Julia Child talked like that, but still.) The book sort of bored me too, to tell the truth. Although I did understand when Julie got excited about getting comments. Comments always excite me too!
I haven’t been to the gym since Monday. Ugh. I think it’s probably for the best though. I just get a little panicky when I miss more than two days in a row. I’m also a little panicky about the holiday goodies that I’ve been consuming for the past couple of weeks. Our scale has a dead battery so I have no idea how much damage my overindulging has done. I can’t go by the way my clothes fit. I always think my clothes are too tight unless they are completely falling off me. Hence the reason most of my stuff is too baggy. As much as a like these short weeks and seeing my family, I’ll definitely be happy this weekend when the holidays are finally over.
