DD Tuesday - what's the plan
salad with egg
steamed broccoli with some protein
If needed a can of soup.
Goal 600c or less
So, last night, I woke up at 2am, totally couldn't breathe through my nose. I was like, WTH, I thought I got over that part of this stupid cold and was just dealing with coughing.
I don't want to go to the Dr with a cold, ya know? b/c it's silly. There's nothing they can do. So I'm just praying it's not an infection of any kind-- I don't feel feverish, but I am sort of tired and out of it. I'm assuming that's just the meds though.
Ok, I had to get that off my chest.
B: water and tea
L: not sure, maybe soup
D: low fat sausage and cabbage stirfry.
Soren, I'm so sorry this thing is hanging on! A friend of mine did go to the Dr and it wound up being a sinus and ear infection, so be careful, and go see them if you feel you need it.
I'm just knocking on wood I don't catch the bug. Between my "real life" contacts and you JBs, I'm surrounded by it!
Feel better Soren, and all you poor JBs fighting this thing!
So far, only coffee, but I did make a Ouizoid Super Low-Cal muffin that I'll nibble on throughout the day.
I also made a big pot of WW Favorite Vegetable Soup and will eat several bowls of that throughout the day.
I think I'll make a gluc pudding too.
Depending on how much of the soup I eat, I should be between 400 and 500 for the day.
Penguin :) what's the favorite vegetable soup? do you just put a bunch of stuff together with broth?
my grocery store sells a "kit" which is basically peeled carrots and butternut squash, and chopped leeks-- then you boil that in your own chicken broth, and puree-- almost-instant soup!
Soren - I'm sure I posted the recipe on my earlier JUDDD adventure in one of our recipe threads but it would probably be hard to find. Let's see if I can copy it here. I usually use more water and spices and make heaping bowls with shiritake noodles or rice (I am a mass quantity eater lol). After it is all cooked I use an immersion blender to kinda puree it - I don't like it all the way smooth but sort of chunky.
WW 0 Point Favorite Vegetable Soup
1 cup diced onion
6 chicken bouillon cubes, seasoning mix or 3-4 teaspoons broth, seasoning mix
6 garlic cloves, minced
6 cups thinly sliced zucchini
2 cups thinly sliced carrots
1 (28 ounce) can diced tomatoes
3 teaspoons chopped fresh parsley
1 teaspoon basil leaves
1 teaspoon italian spices
salt & pepper (to taste)
Saute onions and garlic in a little broth until softened, then dump in everything else and cook until the veggies are soft. You can process a bit at a time until smooth but keep some of the veggies whole for texture.

Soren - when I have a sinus infection and ear infection, I do NOT run a fever. The rule of thumb is, if it lasts more than 7 days, visit the DR !!!! HOPE you feel better soon!
ok, if I'm still sick at the end of this week, I'll call my Dr.
Not to get TMI ;), but when I do blow my nose, it's clear, not green or goopy or whatever. And my ears don't hurt, and they do pop a bit when I blow my nose (as opposed to being totally blocked). I think I'm ok for now...
But I hear you, and I will keep it in mind... my friends are all saying this is taking a good 10 days to clear, and I'm only at a week...
