Being as sick as I've been, eating has been next to impossible. First, it's phenomenally painful to swallow anything other than tepid water--and even that hurts some. Second, my appetite has been pretty much zero, so what I've eaten has been the food I had to force down in order to take my antibiotic.
One 6 ounce yogurt just took me two hours to finish. That's how bad this is.
But when I run my daily nutrition report, Spark People is quite adamant about how I'm meeting my protein goal, but under on everything else. And encouraging me to do better, to not starve myself. I want to explain to it, "but I'm sick! Sick is different! I promise I'll eat better, just as soon as I'm not sick!"
Sparky's having none of that. It's encouraging, but definitely wants some kcal going down my throat.
My poor, raw, mangled throat.
I will do better. Soon. Honest.
