First, its time to celebrate!!

emoticon emoticon emoticon

Today marks DAY 180 of my exercise streak! I'm going to be really busy today but the plan is to get a 3 mile walk in for my LAST CHANCE WORKOUT for BLC

My other exciting plans for the day:

We're going to the animal shelter and checking out a jack russell terrier that we saw. We thought getting Rosco a playmate would be nice.

Once that's done I'm going to start batch cooking. I have a lot to do so this may get split up between tomorrow and Wednesday so I have time to get my 3 miles in.

Now, on to my food groove.....

I've noticed in the last week a few things

1). My sodium levels have been within range except 2 days
2). I've had a Barney smoothie (my recipe) every night for the last 8 nights, a couple hours before bed. I've weighed myself every morning and I'm literally going down every day by 2 ounces. If this keeps up I'll be down a pound (or more) by weigh in on Wednesday.

This leads me to my next point....

I've monitored my weight loss for the last 2 BLC rounds and I've started to notice a pattern. I lose 2 weeks in a row and then on that 3rd week I gain. I'm hoping to break that cycle on this next weigh in. If it happens I'm thinking it has a lot to do with my smoothies, the lower sodium levels, and I'm not eating anything 2 to 3 hours before I go to bed.

I'm excited to see what the scale says. If I see a decrease on Wednesday I may turn these into daily habits. I'm not one who adds additional salt to her food so my sodium levels are purely coming from whatever is in the food.
