Thanks so much for your well wishes on my last post! I ended up staying home from work for three days this week (I’ve never missed 3 days in a row before, it was weird) and going in today. I did ok today, but definitely ran out of steam during the second half of the day. That’s what having pretty much nothing in your system will do for you, I guess.
So maybe some of you have heard this before, but on Wednesday morning my mom informed me I needed to go on the BRAT diet. Thanks, Mom, you call me a brat and you put me on a diet? Sheesh. Just kiddin 🙂
The BRAT diet is this:
Apparently it is often used for babies with gastro-intestinal issues, but can work for anyone. You can also eat saltines and drink clear liquids, but no dairy products. (I had some milk in a smoothie on Tuesday night and suspect that did me in for another day.) So, these things are all I have eaten for the past few days and I think it helped to get some food in my system without overwhelming it. This afternoon, however, I was craving actual food, so I got some Panera chicken noodle soup for dinner. It immediately made my stomach hurt, but now, 2 hours later, I’m feeling fine! Maybe someday soon I’ll be able to eat vegetables again 🙂
Did anyone else watch The Office and 30 Rock tonight? I thought both were very funny 🙂
