My throat feels like someone has taken a cheese grater to it and then started a fan so that it can’t get any moisture. Ouch ouch ouch ouch ouch!!! I’m hoping that I will be able to talk just fine although I have not been doing so today. My job requires me to do so and since I am on commission, calling in sick is hardly an option. I would like to but alas, I cannot. Being sick is making me want a soda. Carbonation has always been the best feeling ever on my sore throats. Ginger Ale is especially good and theraputic. I have to just say no. It is not an option. I know what I’m putting in my mouth today and it does not include sugar. I did manage to find some other items that helped but I still had a moment. Overall I don’t really crave much but there is a small moment every few days where the idea of something is just desirable.

I am feeling a little better at the moment but I know that’s only because of the Tylenol that I took earlier. I will wake up hurting. I’m still staying strong though. I got in a little bit of activity today walking up a hill to my car. I purposely parked in a location I’ve always refused because of the hill. It wasn’t a terribly long walk, rather short in fact, but considering how I felt today I’m glad that I did anything.

Today I calculated my approximate daily calorie intake and was amazed to find that it was roughly 1650. I thought I was eating much more. I’ve never been full on so little. In fact, I’ve never felt so generally satisfied with my food and my fullness levels. I’ll get past this little hiccup in my health and I’m excited for Monday on the scale again.
