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?
