Lesson Learned

Friday, March 09, 2012

Hubby got it in his head I'd be starving and ready for a meal after the bloodwork. Even though I packed a pb & banana sandwich we went out for breakfast.

I was pleased to see the low cal choices. They included egg sub, turkey bacon, sf syrup, and small pancakes. All under 400 calories. Hubby got the bacon, I ate the rest along with a glass of oj. I was pleased with my choice considering they didn't offer the actual nutrition of the meal, other than calorites.

I came home and tracked. To my horror that breakfast was almost 900g of sodium. By this time I had already had a yogurt for a snack and pizza with goat cheese. There is nothing to do but watch more carefully.

I can't go back, but I have learned my lesson.

    Oh wow that happens to me all the time. I think the offering looks good, low in calories, lean protein and than whamo the sodium is out of sight. Next thing I know it is marshmallow ankles time again. Drink plenty of water to flush it out. I hate going out to eat now and my hubby loves it. Funny thing is I can cook much healthier versions here at home..oh, maybe that is why he wants to go out! emoticon

    yes sodium can be a real problem. I have found that I need to check all nutrition as I run into that problem before and with me having CKD I need to be extra careful. It is not easy.

    Yes the sodium can be amazing. I have hbp so I have to watch it too. I just ate probably too much black raspberry ice cream. The qt is almost expired and it was warm today. No one in the family will eat it either. Too many excuses. I try when I eat ice cream to eat .25 cup 1/2 the serving size. Not sure if that happened today.
    Oh well, tomorrow is another day. Hopefully we'll make better choices.
    Take care. Great blog!
