So, I've been doing pretty well since my high bp diagnosis and attempt at a lifestyle change. Today makes five days that I've been working on these changes. Meals have all been good......until today. We bought BBQ plates from a church for a fundraiser. They were already paid for, soooooo, we got them even though I was concerned about eating it.
My hubby and I separated out all six meals that we bought. We put all the beans in one dish, all the potato salad in another, he divided the chicken into pieces, and we even put the onions and pickles in separate containers to be used at a later date. Pickles, probably not by me. :(
I ate two pieces of chicken (a thigh and leg). I removed every bit of skin. I enjoyed it so much, but with my need to watch sodium, I sorta guiltily enjoyed it, if that makes sense. It was really very good, but because I do not know how it was prepared, I have bagged up all the leftovers into freezer bags and put them away. My lovely hubby can take them for lunch because sodium is not something he needs to be concerned about. Next year when this annual fundraiser comes around, we will just donate our money.
So, going to just keep moving forward. Today wasn't a good sodium day. Calorie wise I think I did fine. So, not going to beat myself up about it, but just let it go and look forward to good choices tomorrow.
