So I have been able to make positive postings lately, and I hope I have helped anyone who may have read them, but life is not all sunshine
I don’t know what got a hold of me yesterday. I did about an hour of cardio and strength and had three good meals. I made a recipe I found here that is real easy and everyone likes. Everything was humming along and then I looked at my weekly progress chart. Where did all the sodium come from!?
Run the full report; Breakfast 716 (okay), Lunch…1,299 WHAT! I had a soymilk protein shake, an apple, baby carrots, and a turkey sandwich. Oh, crap, the turkey.
I should know better by now. I used packaged, processed, lunch meat. Just over 600mg of sodium per serving. I just flip into negative mode. I wasn’t too far over the recommended daily limit, just over 600mg, and I had consumed about 2 gallons of water (once I hit drink 10 cups, I don’t keep recording), so, you know, it wasn’t that bad, but I just couldn’t pull my mind up and out. I started munching on soda crackers, then moved on to Wheat Thins. I am not sure how many calories I ate, but I am estimating close to 1300. ARRRRRG!
New day, let it go. I have been up for about 3 hours, and I haven’t exercised yet. I am planning to ride to Makaha Beach. I want to spend some time there watching the water and people before I head back. I am hoping that it will help lift my spirits, clear out the cob webs. I just wanted to post this blog first, because putting it all out there for you to see; helps get me back where I need to be. I know I am not alone and that I am not the only one who stumbles, but it can easy to pretend I didn’t. By sharing, I am holding myself accountable to not just all of you, but myself as well. Here’s to perseverance.
