Turns out I have fat fingers

Thursday, June 25, 2009

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 !

    I did the same "slip" on olive oil the other day, adding an entire cup to my salad!

    I love reading that you are doing so well. It is funny how good we feel when we make these choices and you really inspire me!!

    I'm impressed with how effortless it's been too. Though having this community really helps! Do you feel like you have more energy now? I definitely do, and it's really great.

    One time I baked a cake and mistook the salt for sugar. Not the best cake! HA!

    Keep up the excellent work!
