Week Two -- Sodium Challenge

Wednesday, April 08, 2009

I know this is middle of week three, but better late than never!

Week two was good -- I lost 1.8 pounds, but 149 has aluded me yet another week. I want it so bad!! I made a taco casserole on the Thursday night before weigh in, and even though I used lower sodium taco seasoning, I know the sodium content was high. I wasn't surprised on Friday when I was at 151.2, which was a pound higher then Thursday morning. Ugh!! If I even walk by a table with salt and I will retain water! I really try to watch it but a few of my favorite foods have a lot of sodium in it. There is a restaurant here called Alamo Cafe -- has great Tex Mex food. I got the vegetable fajitas (had them cook them in no oil or seasonings) rice and borracho beans. My fajitas were fabulous, but as I was eating the rice and beans all I could taste was the salt. And yep...up a pound the next day! I try to limit the foods that I know are higher in sodium -- I allow myself one or two higher sodium days a week and try to minimize the rest of the week. As long as I know the gain is water, I am ok with that. Lesson learned...don't have a higher sodium day on Thursday's!!
