I read a thread today about how to achieve the potassium levels asked of us. I never can reach it. Bananas, potatoes, v8 juice are all good suggestions--yet higher(ish) in calories and sodium (v8-even the low sodium version is high; IMO). So, now, I am trying my oatmeal with molasses. It's pretty yummy. It does add 60 extra calories. So does my additional wheat germ/flax seed stuff I add. I figure molasses and wheat germ are far better additions than maple syrup or brown sugar.
I already exercised for 40 + minutes this morning. I broke out the Wii Fit board and did a bunch of yoga (it felt good to s-t-r-e-t-c-h). I will have to do this every morning. Also did the step aerobics. Wish I had video for you--It is quite amusing--I have no sense of rhythm! Then I walked the kids to the bus stop. I really wanted to walk more, but had to get home to greet the next round of kids. (and eat my breakfast).
Tonight's my big Weigh-in for the Biggest Loser contest I am in. I hate weighing myself at night! I just know I'll be changing my start weight on my spark page. Boo Hoo!
