Turns out I have fat fingers

So the last blogpost mentioned my amazement at sodium intake of around 8g per day when I mostly eat food that is not processed...one of the great perks of being unemployed: you have time to cook!
Well...turns out i made a small mistake inputting the recipe for a delicious banana bread...when adding salt, my finger must have slipped, giving me a whole CUP of salt instead of half a teaspoon...so yeay, apart from tasting awful, they would be around 7.5g Na/slice...
Mistake fixed, i am happy to report i am perfectly in range (around 1000 on a daily basis).
The scales seem too have decided to cooperate again, albeit slowly, so i'll wait a couple more days to make any loss official.
The food is getting easier, in fact I am beginning to believe that by eating within range for the 3 food groups one can't go hungry...i only just about mange my protein every day...in fact i am struggling to get enough calories in!
Exercise is building as a habit, and now it is part of my routine...so all good (despite not pushing much on the exercise front)
So overall I am pretty impressed that I seem to have, rather effortlessly, stuck with the plan for 3 weeks...every day in the right direction makes it harder to ever go back (ahem, yeepee)
So yes, HAPPY !
