Yeah, same here. I've been battling the sore throat/fever bug for a week now. It's been hard to make sure that I am getting enough fluids in because it's hard to swallow. I've been putting lemon juice in hot water and sipping it. I haven't been doing as good of a job in planning my food or eating my frequent small meals. It's been more dense food and usually something warm like peanut butter toast or oatmeal. Once I am feeling better, I need to get back on track to planning and eating higher volume foods. And of course, I haven't exercised all week, either. I've maintained for the week so far. Even though I've kept my calories on track, I am not showing a loss? Oh well. Right now, I'm just looking forward to feeling better.
This is a critical time, though - we MUST get on track once we are better!!! I've fallen into poor habits so many times by getting sick and it WILL NOT happen this time. It's funny, even though I haven't gone over on my calories, getting out of the habit of planning food and exercising make me feel like I'm off plan even when I'm not. Remind ourselves that in our new lifestyle, this is how we "do sick" and we'll get back up and get going as soon as we can.
In the meanwhile, if it doesn't hurt too much, have fun with your "sexy voice."

No words of widsom. After a lifetime of reflection and dieting, I still don't have this thing figured out. I have decided, though, that sugar is the devil and I'm cutting it out as much as I can.
